Non-ablative Skin Rejuvenation for Aging Skin

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation uses laser, light and other energy-based treatments to improve skin appearance. Unlike ablative therapies, it does not remove the top layer of skin. Procedures often can be performed in less than an hour and often require little or no downtime. 

Why choose non-ablative skin rejuvenation for aging skin

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation can be used to treat: 

  • Wrinkles 
  • Pigmentation issues 
  • Scars 
  • Spider veins 
  • Age spots 
  • Loss of skin tone 

Possible risks

  • Temporary darkening or lightening of the skin 
  • Scarring 

Estimated cost

The average cost for non-ablative skin rejuvenation is between $550 and $1,200. Since most medical insurance companies consider non-ablative skin rejuvenation therapy a cosmetic procedure, it usually is not covered. 

How to prepare for the procedure

  • Avoid sun exposure. 
  • Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores. 

What to expect after the procedure

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation can reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth, diminish or eliminate age spots and spider veins, and significantly reduce wrinkles and shallow scars. Improvement is gradual and can take several months to take full effect. In some cases, a series of treatments may be necessary. 

Find a doctor for your non-ablative skin rejuvenation treatment

Visit “Find a dermatologic surgeon” and choose “Non-Ablative Light-Based Rejuvenation” from the dropdown menu. In 2013, ASDS dermatologists performed nearly 2.25 million laser/light/energy-based procedures, up from 1.68 million in 2012. Because ASDS dermatologists are trained in a variety of the best and latest techniques, they are the most qualified to evaluate and select the best treatment choice based on the individual patient’s condition.
