HB: Who is the best candidate for this treatment?

This treatment is perfect for people that are concerned about surface irregularities in pigment, texture and pore size as well as those looking for improvement of fine lines and wrinkles.

HB: How does this treatment compare to others of the same nature?

This is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, which delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. Ablative lasers are great to resurface the skin. Non-ablative lasers dive deeper to help increase collagen growth. This hybrid system delivers the powerful results of ablative lasers with the decreased downtime of non-ablative lasers.

HB: What does recovery look like?

After the procedure patients go home with 3-7 days of downtime which includes redness and peeling. The downtime with this laser is only cosmetic in nature. People are fully functional and can perform all activities of daily living.
