NON-ABLATIVE LASER TREATMENT AT A GLANCE
WHAT IT DOES: The non-ablative laser improves the appearance of multiple unwanted skin conditions by delivering a controlled thermal injury into the deeper layers of the skin without physically harming the epidermis. In addition to destroying targeted tissues, the non-ablative laser also stimulates new collagen production, resulting in a thickened dermis with improved texture and appearance of the skin.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: : Non-ablative laser treatments are not for everyone. Patients who are pregnant, lactating, or have a history of keloid scarring should avoid non-ablative lasers. Any active infection in the treatment area is a contraindication, as is the use of oral isotretinoin in the past 6 months.
The ideal patient for non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is generally 35 to 50 years of age and experiencing the early signs of photodamage and aging. Older patients or patients with advanced laxity and deep wrinkles are more suited to ablative laser resurfacing. The range of available non-ablative laser treatments for acne scars, skin resurfacing, and skin rejuvenation presents options for patients with darker skin tones, but it’s important to select an experienced clinician who can provide examples of successful application of the non-ablative laser in similar skin tones as there is a risk for unwanted pigment changes.
