Laser Skin Resurfacing

Tired of deep wrinkles, acne scarring, or other textural irregularities? Our Sublative Fractional Resurfacing treatment safely, gently, and effectively resurfaces your skin from the inside out. The unique combination of superficial ablation and skin rejuvenation leads to wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, improved texture, and even skin tone with minimal social downtime. It is a great treatment for all skin types. Laser Resurfacing is quick with minimal risks, side effects, or discomfort. RF energy is precisely directed to the skin in the form of electrodes. Healthy skin surrounding the target pinpoint sites accelerates the healing process of the skin. After the treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.


A fan, ice pack, or cold compress may alleviate the initial burning/hot sensation which usually lasts 1 hour.

A stinging sensation may last up to 72 hours. If the sensation is too uncomfortable, silver sulfadiazine will alleviate the symptoms.

The treatment area should be cared for delicately until healing is complete. Care should be taken to prevent additional trauma to the treated area for the first 4 to 7 days following treatment.

Post treatment moist wound healing with soaks and topical ointment (i.e., Aquaphor or A&D ointment) is recommended for at least 3 days and up to 7-10 days in some circumstances.

Use simple soap cleansers without exfoliators or beads. (i.e., Cetaphil or Dove), followed by a moisturizer. Edema WILL occur and peak at 2-3 days typically. Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks after treatment. Use Sunblock (> 30 SPF) on a regular basis and wear a hat to protect your skin.

Avoid use of makeup during the first 5 days post-treatment. Once the skinheals, you can apply oil-free makeup to minimize redness, which usually fades in 2 to 3 months.

DAY 1-2

  • Use cleanser
  • Apply ointment (Laser Guard)

Following treatment, excessive perspiration to the treated area may cause tissue disruption. Physical exercise (aerobics, yard work, sports activities) should be discontinued for 7 days to reduce the risk of infection and discomfort.

Avoid scratching or peeling any scabs to minimize any scarring and preventing any infection.

We recommend using fresh pillowcases and sheets during your 1st week of downtime.

Healing should take 5 to 21 days, depending on the condition that was treated.
You may experience burning or stinging up to 72 hours after treatment. A fan, ice pack, or cold compresses may help after treatment.

You may experience itching after treatment. Hydrocortisone cream may help.
Three to seven days after treatment, your skin should become dry and peel.

You can resume your regular skin care program after one week except Retin-A or Retinol products but you can use them 10-14 days or when skin is no longer pink.

Shaving, if applicable, can be resume once you feel comfortable but be careful water is not too hot.
