WHAT EACH PROCEDURE TREATS

TREATMENT
PROCESS

Photo rejuvenation treatments are quite gentle, requiring little or no downtime and typically only produce some skin redness as a post-procedure side effect. For most patients, a brief series of 4-6 sessions will leave most people with the results they’re aiming for. Fractionated laser skin resurfacing, however, usually produces exceptional results with just one session because it has a more extensive impact on the skin. The downside to this is that it does require some recovery time, usually 5-10 days. If you want the advantages of fractional laser skin resurfacing but prefer less recovery time, we also offer a micro laser peel – a less extensive version of the typical fractionated laser resurfacing procedure.
