  • Ablative Lasers
    When in reference to cosmetic lasers, ablative lasers remove the outermost layer of skin during treatment. Ablative Laser resurfacing works by vaporizing the top layer of the skin to remove blemishes, scars and wrinkles. Ablative laser treatments are overall more aggressive in terms of severity, have more downtime (14 days) than non ablative lasers but more results can be expected if the downtime can be afforded by the patient. Because of the downtime and risks associated with ablative lasers such as CO2 and Erbium YAG lasers, fractionated ablative lasers such as Pearl Fractional and Fraxel: Repair offer similar results with a minimal downtime of 5 to 7 days and are also associated with less side effects of the traditional ablative lasers such a scarring and hypopigmentation.
