Non-ablative Skin Rejuvenation for Aging Skin

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation uses laser, light and other energy-based treatments to improve skin appearance. Unlike ablative therapies, it does not remove the top layer of skin. Procedures often can be performed in less than an hour and often require little or no downtime.

Why choose non-ablative skin rejuvenation for aging skin

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation can be used to treat:

  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Scars
  • Spider veins
  • Age spots
  • Loss of skin tone

Possible risks

  • Temporary darkening or lightening of the skin
  • Scarring

How to prepare for the procedure

  • Avoid sun exposure.
  • Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores.

What to expect after the procedure

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation can reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth, diminish or eliminate age spots and spider veins, and significantly reduce wrinkles and shallow scars. Improvement is gradual and can take several months to take full effect. In some cases, a series of treatments may be necessary.
