Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing is one of our most popular treatments!
Laser resurfacing is a skin-rejuvenating procedure that uses a non-ablative laser to improve the appearance of your skin while treating wrinkles and fine lines, loose skin, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, surgical scars, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and more. The technique directs short, and concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregularities in the surface of your skin, precisely removing it layer by layer. By resurfacing your skin, this advanced laser technology stimulates growth of new healthy skin cells from the inside out.
Koniver Aesthetics offers advanced laser skin resurfacing with several premier technologies. Fraxel Dual® and Clear + Brilliant® use thermal energy to create micro-tears in the skin. In response, those controlled wounds trigger collagen growth in the skin, resulting in a healthy glow, smoother texture and a younger-looking surface. ClearLift™ from Alma, is a no-downtime, laser skin resurfacing treatment, utilizing a 1064 nm wavelength that works below the surface of the skin to correct skin issues.\
Fraxel® can help:
- Fine lines and wrinkles – , in addition to other areas.
- Surface & surgical scarring – erasing acne, surgical and other scarring effects
- Pigmentation – diminishing the appearance of age spots
- Sun damage – helping improve long-term effects
- Actinic Keratosis (AK) – removing pre-cancerous skin lesions which if left untreated could lead to skin cancer.
Why CLEAR + BRILLIANT®?
While Fraxel® Dual is still the best option for correcting more serious problem areas, Clear + Brilliant® is a gentler laser option that also goes a step beyond skincare and chemical peels to make your skin glow. Whether you want to maintain the younger look of your skin, or prevent minor early signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant® can be a smart option for you.
- Prevent the signs of aging
- Improve the look of fine lines
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Improve skin’s overall appearance
- Minimize the appearance of pores
- Improve the appearance of pigment irregularities
What's the Difference?
While the wavelengths are largely the same, Fraxel® uses a more intense laser than Clear + Brilliant®, so it penetrates the skin more deeply, and thus, requires a longer recovery time. However, Fraxel® offers more dramatic results when treating serious sun damage, prominent wrinkles and crow’s feet, acne scarring, brown spots and hyperpigmentation. Clear + Brilliant® uses a less intense laser so it is gentler on the skin. Clear + Brilliant® is perfect for maintaining healthy skin and treating superficial skin conditions, such as, fine lines and wrinkles, and minor sun damage
- Skin imperfections
- Multi-color tattoos
- Fine lines
- Loose or saggy skin
- Lightening dark areas under eyes
- And more
