The state-of-the-art laser skin resurfacing technology to rejuvenate and restore aging damaged skin
MedAndSpa offers fractional laser skin resurfacing for those who are looking to improve skin tone and texture with minimal downtime. This non-ablative laser procedure delivers results by treating multiple layers of the skin for a youthful, even glow.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Many believe that we can only see the outer-most layer of the skin, when in fact our skin’s appearance is a reflection of many layers. Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing uses state-of-the-art proven laser techniques to conduct heat deeper into the dermis to treat tissue beneath the surface. This method treats from within to improve overall skin health. Laser treatments also help boost natural collagen production for a youthful rejuvenation.
Why use non-ablative laser skin resurfacing rather than ablative methods?
Firstly, non-ablative lasers are gentler on the skin which ultimately means a shorter recovery time. Ablative treatments are typically used to improve thicker wrinkle lines and deep acne blemishes or scars. This technology is more intense requiring topical anesthesia and can possibly cause epidermal burning. Non-ablative laser treatments are able to treat most mild to moderate wrinkles, scars, and discoloration.
Benefits of laser skin resurfacing

What areas can be treated?
Laser skin resurfacing can be applied to any area of the body, most often it being the face, chest, arms, legs and hands.
How many laser resurfacing treatments will I need?
A consultation at MedAndSpa prior to any treatment will help answer your questions specific to your unique skin needs. The number of treatments needed will depend on the severity of the imperfections and/or desired results. Although gradual, results will become apparent after 1 treatment and will continue to improve with each additional session. Typically, clients complete 3-6 treatments for optimal results.
Who is a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Throughout a lifetime, our skin care regime adapts to the changes our skin experiences. The best candidates for this laser skin resurfacing treatment are usually between the ages of 25 & up with mild to moderate blemishes and wrinkles. Lasers have powerful technology to improve skin appearance regardless of age. MedAndSpa staff will always provide genuine advice on which skin treatments are best for you!
Post treatment care
Following laser skin resurfacing treatment, you may notice that the skin will be temporarily red and swollen. Cool compresses can be applied to treated areas to reduce any temporary discomfort. Most patients are able to resume normal activities almost immediately after treatment. It is recommended to wait 2 days after the treatment to wear makeup in order for the skin to properly breathe and heal. Avoiding sun exposure to prevent new damage in skin tone or texture is highly advised, especially after and in-between treatment sessions.
