FAQís...

Q.) Iíve heard you have to use a messy blue dye with Fractional Resurfacing. Is that true?

A.) Not at Epilution Med Spa. An earlier treatment that used a similar technology required that the skin be painted with a blue dye to prevent the microthermal zones from being created too close together. We use the most advanced equipment available. Our equipment does not require any dye.

Fractional Resurfacing

Everyone wants baby-soft, smooth skin. But age, environmental factors, even stress can have a long-term effect on skin. If you hope to rejuvenate facial imperfections such as acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine wrinkles, irregular coloration, dyschromia, melasma and uneven texture, Fractional Resurfacing is a great option. Fractional Resurfacing is a process by which tiny portions of the skin are treated with an Epilution LaserTM, causing the appearance of the rest of the skin to improve. The treated areas are very small, about 120-160 microns in diameter. These tiny treated areas, called microthermal zones, will cause the surrounding skin to rejuvenate.


Before Treatment
At Epilution, we begin with a free consultation. At this time, the physician will determine a customized treatment program to maximize your results. This analysis includes evaluation of your skin, discussion of your goals, and reviewing of your treatment options. Our treatment is NOT cookbook, it is customized for you In fact, if our doctor does not believe we can accomplish your goals, we will educate you for free rather than treat you. Sunblock or strict sun avoidance is critical for the 2 weeks before the treatment. Treating recently tanned skin can cause dark spots that may last for weeks.

Treatment
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. Although this treatment entails a bit of discomfort, it is mild. In an earlier form of this treatment, the skin would get quite hot, causing significant pain. The newer treatment uses a larger laser beam that is divided into 100 tiny, precisely placed laser points. With each pulse, 100 microthermal zones are simultaneously created in a fixed pattern. The area between the points is protected. This method works much better and causes much less discomfort.

After Treatment
Afterward, your skin may appear mildly swollen and pink or red for a few days. Sunblock or strict sun avoidance is critical after the treatment to minimize the side effects. Typically, clients receive three to five treatments spaced at one month intervals. More severe cases will benefit from more treatments. The skin will continue to improve for about four to six months after the last treatment.
