In our youth we are blessed with soft, smooth skin that is blemish-free and has a radiant glow. But then...life happens! Years of unprotected sun exposure, along with stress, exposure to environmental factors, acne, and lifestyle habits eventually take a toll on our skin. Laser skin resurfacing offers multiple benefits for skin that has been affected by one or more of the following:
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Sun damage/uneven pigmentation
- Acne or chicken pox scars
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
Laser skin resurfacing treats damaged skin using an intense light beam. There are two types of laser skin resurfacing:
Ablative – an invasive laser that removes the top layer of the skin, and requires healing time.
Non-ablative – also known as fractional skin resurfacing. A less invasive laser that treats deeper areas of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Fractional lasers target very small areas, leaving the surrounding skin intact, resulting in faster recovery time.
Laser skin resurfacing is a suitable option for those seeking smoother skin and improved radiance. APT Medical Aesthetics is pleased to offer several options for laser skin resurfacing. Clear + Brilliant® is a gentler treatment with minimal recovery time. Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser is a more intense option that delivers results in a little as one treatment.
