The Process • Laser beam divides into thousand microscopic beams • Penetrates epidermis, pass through dermis • Targets just a fraction of skin at a time

Your Skin • Laser creates treated tissue surronded by untreated tissue • Result: most patients experience quicker healing with factional laser therapy than with traditionnal laser therapies • Procedure stimulates skin’s own natural healing process, including production of collagen • Production increases, skin looks younger and fresher

Ablative vs. Non-Ablative Ablative • Does targeted damage to outer layer of skin • Subsequent healing process creates smoother, softer skin
