Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Rejuvenation

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
As we age, our skin can become uneven, wrinkled, dis-colored and scarred as a result of exposure to the elements. As a board certified physician, Dr. Sypien of Chicago is an expert at using laser resurfacing techniques to rejuvenate & improve photo-aged skin.  Ageless MedSpa uses state-of-the-art proven laser techniques to conduct heat deeper into the dermis essentially by-passing the top layer of skin to treat tissue beneath the outer layers.
 
Who Should Use Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The best candidates for this laser skin resurfacing therapy are usually between 25 & 65 years of age with minimal facial sagging. Proper use of the laser promotes skin coagulation without the recovery time and costly preparation of ablative procedures. Laser skin resurfacing is very effective at improving under-eye appearance, skin texture from acne scars, fine wrinkles, stretch-marks, and photo-aging.
 
Why Use Non-ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing rather than Ablative Methods?
Ablative treatments are typically used to improve thicker wrinkles or deep acne blemishes. This technology is more severe requiring topical anaesthesia and can cause epidermal burning. Recovery times using this technique are much longer than non-ablative laser skin resurfacing techniques, limiting work or social obligations for up to 10 days and may take up to 4-6 weeks to fully recover.

Non-ablative laser treatments are ideal for:

  • mild to moderate wrinkling
  • stretch marks & acne scars
  • photo-aging
  • broken capillaries
  • pigmentation irregularities

This technique can effectively eliminate most acne scars and stretch marks over a series of 4-6 treatments. Non-ablative laser resurfacing applies laser light to the tissue beneath the skin without causing thermal injury to the skin. The human body has a natural ability to heal itself by creating new healthy tissue to replace the treated skin, so most patients experience only mild discomfort followed by roughly three days of redness.

How does Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Doctor Sypien, M.D. uses a specialized erbium laser which emits microbeams of energy that penetrate beyond the stratum corneum and deeper into the epidermis & dermis. This array of microbeams eliminates the outermost layer of the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This process stimulates the production of collagen to smooth wrinkles, creases, and other skin imperfections. Through the body's natural healing processes, new healthy skin replaces the damaged skin.
 
Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Excellent results with minimal treatment time – some facial and chest treatments completed in as little as 12 minutes
  • Minimal to no pain during the procedure – mild topical anaesthesia can make it painless
  • Fast Recovery time of 3-5 days – mild facial redness & minimal swelling occurs in most cases
  • 4-6 non-invasive treatments typically  produce the desired skin enhancing results
  • Evens skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates collagen production
What areas can I have treated?
Laser skin resurfacing can be applied to any area of the body, including the face, chest, arms, legs and hands.
 
How Many Laser Resurfacing Treatments will I Need?
The number of treatments required will depend on the severity of the imperfection and the type of correction desired. Most changes will occur gradually over 4-6 treatments providing the desired cumulative aesthetic benefit with impressive skin texture and tone.
 
Post Treatment Care
Doctor Sypien is a board certified physician and offers tailored post treatment relief based on individual patient requirements and needs. Typical post treatment care requires an easy-to-apply daily application of healing ointments for a short period of time to reduce swelling and eliminate redness.
