Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing with Asclepion?

Asclepion skin resurfacing is an advanced method of removing the topmost layer of old skin so your new healthy skin can take its place. This treatment is perfect if you're looking for intensive skin renewal, and is ideal for wrinkles, lines, and scars including acne scars. Skin resurfacing can also balance your skin tone and enhance your overall appearance. 

Whether your main goal is to look younger or you're simply looking for a fresh start with your skin, a skin resurfacing/Asclepion treatment could be right for you. 

How does skin resurfacing with Asclepion work?

The Asclepion MicroSpot technology splits a laser beam into several hundred partial beams. The beams create many pinpoint skin wounds, patterned in a grid. 

This process removes damaged skin and triggers new collagen growth under your skin. The skin resurfacing treatment eliminates wrinkled and scarred skin while helping your body to make the support proteins it needs to smooth and tighten the skin. 

Thanks to the novel MicroSpot technology, it takes only a few days to heal the wounds from the laser. Traditional skin resurfacing treatments can require weeks of recovery because they take a much harsher approach. 

How many skin resurfacing with Asclepion treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on your particular skin problems. For many people, one session is enough to see significant skin improvements. If you have very deep scars or wrinkles, you may need another treatment session in a few weeks to achieve the best possible results. 

What happens after skin resurfacing treatment?

Recovery time after an Asclepion skin resurfacing treatment is typically quite short. You may experience some heat and redness for the first few days, but the team can recommend moisturizing and soothing creams to apply during that time. 

Your skin may appear red for up to a week, but you can wear light makeup if desired. Be sure to wear sunscreen outdoors, as this protects your skin as it heals.
