With more aggressive treatments, your dermatologist can use laser Skin Resurfacing for easing fine lines and wrinkles.There are many variations on laser resurfacing, depending on which laser is available. Generally speaking, the more aggressive the laser, the better the results at the cost of more downtime, slower healing, and greater risk of complications.
The following types of Skin Resurfacing Lasers:
1: Fractional Non-ablative
2: Fractional Ablative
3: Full Surface Ablative
4: Hybrid of Fractional Non-ablative and Ablative
Dermatology Associates of Seattle offers the latest version of these types of laser, making our clinic uniquely capable of providing tailored patient preferences to exact treatment requirements and skin types. Tailored treatments allow our providers to meet your expected need for results balanced against both downtime and risk.
Our current favorite is the hybrid laser (Halo), which give an excellent overall result in a couple of treatments with minimal downtime and minimal risk. If this interests you, I'd recommend scheduling a consultation to go over the many options we have available to serve your needs.
