Laser Resurfacing- 2940 Fractional Ablative Laser
One Hit Wonder (Only one treatment needed!)
Dr. Larry C. Leverett can now repair signs of aging or skin damage with this nonsurgical, ablative skin resurfacing treatment. In the past, pursuing surgical CO2 resurfacing was the only way for individuals to address those deep, difficult-to-treat lines and creases around the eyes, mouth and face. However, times have changed! And with one simple treatment, Dr. Leverett can turn back the hands of time with recovery in as little as four days with this FDA cleared Fractional Laser Wrinkle Treatment.
It’s not magic. It’s powerful laser technology that breaks down facial lines and creases and helps generate new skin that is healthier and smoother. Best of all, the treatment lets you look like you-only better.
Dr. Leverett uses the 2940 laser to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, creating a matrix of nearly imperceptible wounds. As the wounds heal, they stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for wrinkle-free, firm, youthful-looking skin. The 2940 laser is so technologically sophisticated that it can improve abnormal pigmentation, age spots, skin texture, skin elasticity and skin firmness, in addition to, addressing those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. The result of this laser resurfacing treatment is the generation of new skin that is smooth and even.
*Not suitable for patients with a Fitzpatrick greater than 4.
This is a single treatment procedure that can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What to expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, the skin will take on a brownish appearance commonly referred to as “bronzing.” The bronzing will slough off in the following days to reveal healthy new skin. Therefore, the socialite in each individual can anticipate 2-4 days of initial social downtime. During the first 2 weeks after treatment, new skin will begin to form and it is essential to avoid sun exposure during that time.
