Case 2, before (left) and after (right) laser skin resurfacing
We used fractionated Erb:YAG and CO2 lasers to address acne scars and brown spots for this 57-year-old patient, pictured here after one treatment.
Fractionated laser skin resurfacing is based on the principle of micro-thermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny treatment zones (photos below), removing the upper layers of skin. The micro-thermal treatment triggers the body's natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin. Thus, this laser skin resurfacing at the Philadelphia area’s Cirillo Institute treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These untouched areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production.
