What is Ablative Fractional Resurfacing?
The 2940 fractional ablative resurfacing treatment delivers the potency of typical ablative treatments without the significant side effects and prolonged downtime. This treatment helps to correct fine lines and wrinkles, textural irregularities, superficial pigmented lesions, and vascular dyschromia, but is primarily used for correction of moderate to deep wrinkles. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, specific scars and certain types of benign skin lesions.
How does it work?
This treatment works by creating multiple micro-thermal (heat) zones that vaporize the outer layer of the skin, stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to self-heal. When compared to traditional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing, the Cynosure Icon 2940 produced similar results with much less downtime and side effects. Usually 1 to 2 treatments are recommended and the time in between treatments can be determined during consultation.
What to expect after the treatment?
After a fractional ablative laser treatment, you can expect temporary swelling and crusting. The average downtime for this treatment ranges from 4-6 days depending on the individual. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed.
