Fractional Ablative Laser
Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills offers non-invasive fractional ablative laser resurfacing for patients looking to restore a youthful and rejuvenated look. Laser resurfacing can decrease the appearance of fine lines, as well as treat skin discoloration associated with sun damage and aging. Lasers can also improve the appearance of scars. Fractional ablative laser resurfacing offers more dramatic and permanent results compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as peels or micro-dermabrasion.
How Fractional Ablative Laser Works
Fractional ablative laser restores and corrects aging changes of the skin. Aging and sun exposure alters the appearance of skin. Blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles become more evident as the epidermis (superficial layer of the skin) becomes thinner. The collagen and hyaluronic acids of the dermis (mid-layer of the skin) also diminishes with aging. The fractional ablative laser delivers a beam divided into microscopic treatment zones, treating a fraction of the skin. This stimulates new collagen formation and collagen remodeling. The Unaffected healthy skin tissue will assist with the healing process. The procedure typically takes about 30- 45 minutes to complete. Fractional ablative laser treatment can be used on any part of the body, particularly the face, neck, chest and hands.

- Quick procedure

What to Expect After the Procedure
Most patients at Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills experience burning sensations for about 30 minutes following their fractional ablative laser treatment. This is completely normal and should fade away on its own. It is also common to experience swelling, mild crusting and pink skin spots for several days after the procedure. The complete result will be evident once all the side effects have subsided. With proper skin care, fractional ablative laser treatment results are long-lasting and take several years off your appearance.
