Q. Are there any medications that may affect my treatment?

Yes. Some medications make your skin much more susceptible to burning. These medications include: Retin A, Accutane® and any form of tetracycline. Our doctor will review your medication list prior to treatment. Make sure you have a list of all medications you take, including non-prescription medications.

Q. What is Fractional Resurfacing?

Fractional Resurfacing is a process by which tiny portions of the skin are treated with a laser, causing the appearance of the rest of the skin to improve. The treated areas are very small, about 30 millionths of an inch in diameter. These tiny treated areas, called microthermal zones, will cause the surrounding skin to rejuvenate.
