Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Improve Skin from the Inside Out in Fruitland, Idaho
Do you have concerns with any of the following: acne scarring, stretch marks, surgery or traumatic scars, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, or uneven skin tone or texture? We have the answer! Non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing at Fruitland’s The MedSpa by CT Derm reaches deep into the skin to provide the results you are looking for—all while treating a range of cosmetic concerns in the same treatment session.
This remarkable treatment spares the epidermis (the top layer of your skin), which means that while you may experience some post- non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing redness, you should be able to jump back into your busy life right away. There is finally a no-downtime option that will improve the health of your skin while turning back the hands of time. This treatment repairs several medical and cosmetic skin conditions, including sun damage, acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, melasma, stretch marks, and skin texture and tone.
How to Prepare for a Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Session
We recommend that you get ready for your non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment by having a few Epionce™ products on hand to provide post-treatment care. For cleansing, use either Gentle Foaming Cleanser or Milky Lotion Cleanser. For moisturizing, use either Medical Barrier Cream or Renewal Calming Cream. For sun protection, use Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50.
The Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment
What to Expect Prior to Treatment
We first remove any make-up or skincare from your skin in order to prepare it for the non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing session. We apply a numbing cream to help with discomfort, and protective eyewear will be provided.
This treatment will not be applied to skin suffering from active dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.
What to Expect During Treatment
The energy from a non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment is delivered in pulses by a 1540 nm laser. Each pulse lasts for about a second. Test pulses will be performed to find a setting that is comfortable for you. Your skin may feel warm or hot, and each pulse may feel like the snap of a rubber band.
Several passes are required. This heats the skin, so we use a topical numbing cream and a cooling roller to lessen any discomfort. This treatment can be combined with a chemical peel to treat surface roughness and large pores, as well as radiofrequency and LED energy for tissue tightening and increase of elasticity.
Non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments typically take about an hour.
What to Expect After Treatment
Application of cool gel ice packs, Epionce™ Priming Oil, and Epionce™ Medical Barrier Cream right after a non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment can help alleviate post-session itchiness, burning, and stinging that may occur.
Mild swelling is expected just after treatment and generally resolves within 24 to 48 hours—but may rarely last up to three to five days.
You may experience significant redness, broken capillaries, and bronzing in the treatment area for approximately one to three days after non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing. This may persist in a mild form for 10 to 14 days and is more common in treatment areas other than the face.
Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing At-Home Care
We recommend that you cleanse the treated area about every 12 hours with a gentle cleanser—such as Epionce™ Milky Lotion Cleanser or Epionce™ Gentle Foaming Cleanser—for the first two to four days. After each cleansing session, and whenever the affected skin begins to feel dry, apply Epionce™ Renewal Calming Cream followed by two applications of Epionce™ Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50, with the second application following 30 minutes after the first one. You should be able to continue your normal skincare program after two to four days, making sure to continue to apply sunscreen daily all year long.
