Our fractional resurfacing treatment is a gentle and efficient procedure that reduces the range of photoaging signs and rejuvenates the skin, producing fresh, younger looking faces, necks and hands. These impressive results are achieved by replacing old, damaged cells with new, healthy ones – and, with our SharpLight’s innovative technology, this is done quickly, effectively and safely
Our revolutionary Er:YAG laser produces a micro epidermal peel, which through a thermo-mechanical reaction, removes the problematic areas on the top layer of the skin. The fresh layer that grows has an improved texture, reduced or disappeared fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and spots and an overall renewed radiance.
Long-lasting results are usually achieved within 3 to 6 relatively short treatment sessions, making it time and cost efficient for the patient.
Being able to effectively combat and improve the appearance of the many signs of aging and environmental damage with this one treatment – in a relatively small number of sessions with minimal side effects and minimal healing time – is what has made our fractional resurfacing treatment so popular.

Day of Treatment:

·Eat a meal 1-2 hours before your treatment – this prevents feeling jittery with the numbing cream
·No caffeine for 4 hours before your treatment

·Are you pregnant or breast feeding?

What will I look like right after the treatment and what is the healing time?
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as sunburned.
Advise: Keep your Sun Screen, Moisturizer Cream and Aquaphor healing ointment cooling at the refrigerator and use them as cold as possible every 3 to 4 hours during the first 8 days .
Your skin will look very red immediately after the treatment and will fade over the next 1-3 days. Usually you can go back to normal activities including work, with make-up, within 1-3 days. Occasionally, the redness may take longer to resolve. Rarely, bruising may develop, which can take up to two weeks to resolve. Allow 2-3 weeks for weddings, reunions, family pictures, etc just to be safe.
Within a few days after each treatment, a “bronzed” look to the skin is common, which can last 1-2 weeks. Your skin may flake and exfoliate a little. Using a moisturizer will help reduce the appearance of dry flakes. Remember, it will take several treatments to obtain optimal results.
