Laser resurfacing treatments may utilize either ablative or non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers, such as Pearl, Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion treatments, remove thin layers of skin. Non-ablative lasers do not remove skin layers, instead working by stimulating natural collagen production to tighten the skin. Non-ablative laser treatments include Genesis Plus, Laser Genesis and LimeLight.
At Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center, we create personalized treatment plans to ensure your laser resurfacing sessions give you the best possible results. For some procedures, Dr. Rigor may administer a topical anesthesia. Healing time varies depending on the type of treatment received. Many laser procedures require no downtime at all, while others require at least one week. During Dr. Rigor’s comprehensive consultation, he will discuss any necessary post-treatment care and restrictions.
