What are non ablative lasers?
A non-ablative laser generates beams of coherent light using a very narrow range of wavelengths.
The light beams selectively target and heat the water chromophore in the skin. As a result the temperature of the tissue rises which stimulates neocollagenesis.
How does a non ablative laser work?
The non-ablative laser uses a wavelength that does not cause the water in the tissue to evaporate (ablate) but rather the laser energy heats the tissue in a controlled manner. The rise in temperature stimulates neocollagenesis, a process in which new collagen is produced by the body. Collagen is a fibrous protein that is responsible for giving the skin its elasticity and suppleness. By producing new collagen the skin regains is youthful appearance.
Since the treatment does not involve tissue evaporation or ablation, treatment downtime is significantly reduced, which is also why it is preferred over ablative treatments by many patients.
Non Ablative Resurfacing with the ResurFX at Gravity Med Spa
The ResurFX is the only true fractional non- ablative technology. Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFX only needs one pass to be effective, saving time and protecting the patient’s skin. ResurFX uses a 1565nm fiber laser and a very advanced scanner, which enables the user to choose from more than 600 combinations of shape, size and density options, for optimal treatment results. The ResurFX module has a state-of-the-art CoolScan™ scanner for non-sequential scanning. The CoolScan scanner uses a proprietary algorithm that controls the placement of each fractional spot. This protects the tissue from heat accumulation and overheating. Moreover, the ResurFX handpiece is equipped with continuous contact cooling to increase patient comfort during treatment.
