There are plenty of options when it comes to rejuvenating your face. You can try using dermal fillers to smooth the skin, you can use harsh chemicals for a chemical peel or you can utilize the latest technology and rejuvenate your skin the modern way.
Fractional nonablative resurfacing uses light particles to affect the skin and slowly rid your skin of unsightly issues like pigmentation or acne scars. Dr. Norris is proud to offer this revolutionary technique to her patients in the Peru, IL area.
What is Fractional Nonablative Resurfacing
Fractional nonablative resurfacing in Peru, IL uses a concentrated laser to penetrate the skin and reach the pockets of water hidden within it. Since our bodies are mostly comprised of water, it provides plenty of opportunities for the laser to work.
Once the laser hits the water, it heats the water enough to affect the surrounding area, but not enough for the water to completely evaporate. The damage done to the surrounding tissues is enough to trigger the body’s natural healing response, but not so harsh that you personally feel any effects.
What Makes Fractional Nonablative Resurfacing Unique?
The key to this kind of treatment is right in the name: nonablative. Nonablative means the water doesn’t evaporate. By causing the water to heat, but not completely evaporate, this laser can boost collagen production, but not leave the skin dry. It also reduces the amount of time needed for treatment and makes the already-manageable list of side effects even easier.
What is Fractional Nonablative Resurfacing Used to Treat?
- Age Spots
- Acne Scars
- Skin pigmentation
- Uneven skin tone
- And more
What is Treatment Like?
Fractional Nonablative resurfacing treatment starts with your consultation. During this meeting, we’ll go over your skin goals and create a customized plan for you. You will then go into our office where we will place you in a chair and cover the treated area with a cooling gel. This gel works to enhance the laser’s effectiveness and protect your skin.
During the treatment, you may feel a slight stinging sensation as the laser penetrates your skin. Previous patients have described the feeling as having a thin rubber band bounce against your skin. Once the treatment is completed, a member of our medical team will remove any excess gel on your face and provide a soothing moisturizer.
At this time, we will go over the best ways to take care of your skin following the appointment. This includes avoiding makeup, staying out of the sun, using moisturizers and constantly using sunscreen.
Don’t let your skin’s issues get you down anymore. Call today for a free consultation at our Peru, IL office.
