The Laser360 treatment is designed to address a variety of issues.  If you feel that your skin has a number of problems that you want to fix, then this is the perfect solution.  It is essentially the all-in-one option for laser skin rejuvenation.

Pixel Skin Resurfacing

What is It?

Pixel skin resurfacing is a laser treatment designed to primarily target fine lines/wrinkles and enhance overall skin texture.  The fractional ablative laser will create thousands of micro-perforations in your skin.  By leaving the surrounding area intact, the unaffected area will start producing more collagen and lead to rapid tissue hearing as well as long-term results.

When It is Your Best Choice

Pixel skin resurfacing is a treatment which is best suited to smoothing out your skin and reducing fine lines.  It does not affect the color of the skin or help with pigmentation problems.  The enhanced collagen production will help tighten your skin and give it a smoother, healthier appearance.

Laser Skin Tightening

What is It?

Laser skin tightening is a treatment designed to apply heat to deeper layers of collagen under your skin.  It is considered to be more effective than chemical peels, while being less invasive than surgery.  The tightening of your skin is immediately noticeable and there is no required downtime once it has been completed.  You will also notice additional tightening over the next several months.

When It is Your Best Choice

Laser skin tightening can be used in a variety of situations; however it is primarily used by people who notice their skin beginning to sag around their face and neck but want to avoid surgery.  This treatment deals only with tightening your skin, although it can lead to a healthier looking complexion as well.

Fractional Skin Rejuvenation

What is It?

Fractional skin rejuvenation is used for a variety of reasons.  It is most well-known for reducing pore size, minimizing scars, and smoothing wrinkles.  It also does not have as much downtime or discomfort as other popular resurfacing options.  Essentially, the treatment is designed to trigger the body’s natural healing process.  This results in the new growth of skin tissue.

When It is Your Best Choice

Fractional skin rejuvenation can be applied to a variety of scenarios and treat the problem area effectively.

If you are still having problems deciding which one is right for you, the easiest option is to contact your local cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options.  While none of these procedures are surgeries, a qualified cosmetic surgeon will be able to provide you with the insight you need to make the right choice.
