On one hand, it appears to be a far-fetched idea. After all, there are a lot of reasons why we may not look 20 years younger.  Despite the use of peels and facials and the best cosmetics on the market, we may still have wrinkles and scars, as well as red and brown spots.  Moreover, besides the process of aging, our skin may look older because of hormonal changes, environmental toxins, and just too much exposure to the sun.

 Yet, on the other hand, we now live in a time of rapidly changing technology.  It is a time where new scientific discoveries have allowed us to do what may have seemed impossible to previous generations.  This acceleration of knowledge has not left the anti-aging movement in the dust. Instead, it has made it much easier to now resolve long-standing skin problems.

Consider, for example, ablative resurfacing, a new way of reliably revitalizing the skin, restoring its former glow.  What’s more, this process of restoring a youthful appearance can be done safely.  Yet it gets even better: There is a minimum downtime unlike plastic surgery.

What is Ablative Resurfacing?

This is an individualized treatment that can correct pigments, scars and wrinkles. Moreover, it is effective enough to restore scarred and uneven skin.  In fact, it is the perfect solution for dull skin that shows the signs of aging.  This process can be used for removing surface cell layers or it can be used for deeper cell tissue.

Often a lighter treatment is enough to provide the client a fresh, new skin.  The more intense treatment is recommended for those who have deep scars or deeply-set wrinkles.

Benefits of Fractional Resurfacing

This lighter treatment is called “fractional resurfacing.”  It works remarkably well with acne scars and the removal of fine lines.  Additionally, the skin treatment can lighten age spots.  Besides the face, it can be used on neck, body and hands.

Healing is rapid because microperforations leave the surrounding area intact. As a result, the skin can produce new collagen to restore itself.

While this process works really well for people with lighter skin, those with darker skin must first use a prescription agent to lighten the skin.  The reason for this precaution is because there is a risk of abnormal pigmentation when the treatment is applied on darker skin.


Despite the many insults the skin experiences in our modern age, ranging from pollutants in air and food to hormonal irregularities and a stressful lifestyle, it is now possible to restore skin.  In fact, it is now possible to look and be perceived by others as years younger than ones biological age.  One skin treatment that has been gaining rapid popularity because of its efficacy is ablative resurfacing.  Fractional resurfacing , a lighter form of ablative resurfacing, works extremely well for treating surface skin issues.
