For many years, because of the high risk/benefit ratio of laser skin resurfacing, less invasive approaches for treating photoaging have been desirable. Now, non-ablative fractional skin rejuvenation has become very popular, as it involves little or no downtime and delivers great results for mild to moderate skin wrinkling and dyschromia. The process is so gentle that the neck, chest, hands and face can all be treated.
It creates an ablative thermal channel at the pixel area causing a micro-injury without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves.

• Little or no downtime
• Quick treatment time
• Easy, in and out procedure
• Safe, effective, in-demand treatment
• Treat the face as well as the chest, neck and hands
