Laser refraction: ablative or non-ablative?

Can beautiful and toned skin be achieved without scars and pigmentation? Maybe. Since the laser machine was used in cosmetology.

There are ablative and non-ablative methods of laser rejuvenation - each solves its own skin problems. Which method to choose, read the article.

Laser refraction: differences between ablative and non-ablative methods

Ablative rejuvenation is a way to tighten the skin with quick and visible results.

In the ablative mode, a carbon dioxide or erbium laser is used. Light radiation only affects the upper layers of the skin at depths up to 1 mm. This is enough to eliminate or correct skin problems.

The procedure is suitable for troubleshooting:

  • roic,
  • acne scars,
  • reduce skin tone,
  • static wrinkles around the eyes,
  • some disorders of pigment formation.

In addition to the lifting effect, the ablative laser allows you to remove or reduce stretch marks, scars and scars.

The rehabilitation period is 5-7 days. Repeat sessions are usually not required.

In the non-ablative mode, the laser performs microdamages to stimulate collagen production. In this case, the deep layers of the skin are affected without damaging the upper ones - a slight redness disappears within an hour. The procedure is suitable for those who wish to:

  • remove excess pigmentation
  • improve facial skin tone without surgery.

Non-ablative laser skin tightening is the right choice if you are looking for a way to rejuvenate without downtime.

The method has a cumulative effect - for the best result, 3-4 procedures with an interval of 2 weeks are recommended.

What type of laser refresher to choose?

The choice of method depends on the age and the problems you want to solve. Also, alternatively, you can try changing SMAS hardware.

For example, to remove fine wrinkles or reduce post-acne scars, an ablative method is ideal. For skin rejuvenation at the age of 25-35, a non-abrasive method is suitable: the laser acts more smoothly in the deep layers of the epidermis.
