Skin Retexturizing:

By using fractional ablative resurfacing technology, this procedure retexturizes the surface of your skin by vaporizing micro-columns of tissue. This process allows the formation of new, healthy skin cells and leads to a smoother complexion and more even pigmentation.

Scar Repair:

Laser scar treatment is a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little to no downtime. It uses micro-pulses of laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the skin’s support structure.
