Radio Frequency Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that uses laser technology to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Laser skin resurfacing may be performed on the face or on specific regions of the body. This treatment also stimulates new collagen growth in the dermis that helps to restructure and restore skin to a healthy state for skin that looks younger, fresher and firmer.

Radio Frequency Ablative Fractional Resurfacing with is the latest technological advancement in cosmetic laser procedures. This is FDA approved to treat fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentaion, scarring, and acne. Radio Frequency Ablative Fractional Resurfacing is extremely successful in improving skin texture, minimizing scars tightening loose skin and correcting pigmentation.

Treatments takes about 45 mins, with a 20 minute pre-numbing prep. With this advanced technology downtime is minimal with dramatic results. We call it the “The Weekender Laser”, come in on a Friday and go back to work on Monday. Slight swelling and redness will occur up to 24 hours after treatment.

Skin can be covered with light mineral makeup if desired.

Radio Frequency will help speed up collagenesis. Stimulating up to 14 mm deep into the skin promotion tighter and firmer skin.

Contraindications do apply when treated with a hyaluronic filler. All Radio Frequency treatments can be performed one month after hyaluronic filler (i.e Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm).

CO2 lasers create more heat in the skin during treatment. The light and heat help tighten the skin by producing millions of small laser holes. As the skin heals, it tightens and texture improves. Ablative lasers actually remove microscopic tubules of skin, while leaving the surrounding area untreated, thereby allowing the skin to heal more quickly.) This treatment is ideal for patients with sagging, wrinkled and severely scarred skin. It’s also used to tighten stretch marks on the stomach and smooth crêpe-like skin (sometimes called chicken-skin) on the neck and chest.

New Development in Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing has been very popular of late for rejuvenating and improving the look of aged and wrinkled skin. This is a technique where we use lasers and other energy sources to treat through the epidermis and into the dermis at varying depths, but treat it in a fractional manner.

Treats Small Areas at a Time

We pass a laser hand piece over 100% of the surface area, but we’re only treating 20-30% of the surface of the skin. A way to think of this is very similar to when you have a lawn aerated. We move along and the laser creates little holes in the skin but there is normal skin in between that helps that area grow in. This is in fact what we are doing, on a microscopic scale, on the skin.
