Laser Skin resurfacing is a procedure performed to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities including blemishes and acne scars. At anew clinic, non-ablative laser technique is used for skin resurfacing. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive and toil by heating the targeted tissues without destroying the tissues. Non-ablative laser beams of light stimulate the collagen production in the body and fill the redundant skin imperfections. At Anew clinic, we have a team of well experienced and dedicated team of specialists to perform non-ablative laser for skin resurfacing treatment with sophisticated and advanced Lumenis laser machine with FDA approvals.

At Anew clinic, we use the best Lumenis non-Ablative laser machine with an advanced scanner technology called CoolScan™. CoolScan™ uses a complex algorithm for energy deliverance in a precise and homogenous way for required coverage in a single pass. The lumenis laser machine allows the selection of more than 600 amalgamations of shape, size, concentration and energy levels. The integrated cooling system in lumenis machine increases patient comfort during the treatment.

In non-ablative skin resurfacing, the fractional laser beam of light distributes heat into the skin through small and deep columns known as microthermal treatment zone. The treatment eradicates old pigmented cells and drops heat deep into the dermis layers to stiffen the skin layer and to excite collagen modification. The surrounding tissues remain unaffected in the process. The limited array of the non-ablative laser beam allows the skin to heal faster and healthy tighter skin nurture to replace wrinkled skin. The main advantage of using the non-ablative laser for skin resurfacing is that the recovery period after the treatment is very less with minimal chances for complication. It is a minimal invasive procedure and can be performed within an hour to treat facial wrinkles.

During the procedure, the skin is cleansed. A laser head is conceded over the skin in a series of horizontal and vertical overlapping passes. It is common to have a mild prickling or burning sensation during the process. If required, a topical anesthetic is applied before the treatment or a cooling mechanism is performed during the treatment. The fractional lasers used in non-ablative resurfacing use lower energy levels and remove the outer layer of skin completely without damaging the lower layers of skin. Heat from the non-ablative laser encourages collagen production which helps reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles.
