Lasers have been used by the beauty industry for decades to change and rejuvenate the surface of the skin. Resurfacing laser treatments have received a bad reputation because of the main drawbacks, like a painful, lengthy downtime. That is, until now. Introducing LaseMD, a new Fractional Non-Ablative Laser that uses laser energy to create micro-channels in the skin where it can work its powerful effects. This newly created micro-channels help stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which helps to improve the overall health and quality of the skin at a cellular level.
LaseMD skin resurfacing treatments can be used to improve a wide variety of common skin concerns and imperfections, including treating active acne and acne scarring, sun damage and melasma, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and texture, and even help to tighten skin!
How does LaseMD work?
LaseMD is a fractional non-ablative laser that works by stimulating collagen production from the right amount of laser energy applied to the right depth within the skin. This laser energy triggers the natural healing response within the skin, and jumpstarts the regenerative process of producing new collagen. The laser also creates microscopic channels within the skin that help correct damaged tissue and remove unwanted pigment. A LaseMD treatment creates a more even tone and texture to the skin. Unlike other laser treatments, LaseMD causes the same immediate damage to the skin, but does not destroy it, significantly minimizing the pain and downtime.
Another perk of a LaseMD treatment is that it has a wide range of power settings, allowing a treatment session to be individualized to each client, each skin type, and each skin concern. This makes the LaseMD treatment a revolutionary no-downtime laser treatment.
Let’s dive a little deeper into how laser treatment works. The key to understanding LaseMD is to first understand collagen and how it works in the natural aging process. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is made up of three layers, each with a different function. The three layers are the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer.
The epidermis is the top layer of skin and is the part you can see. It provides the first barrier to infection from environmental pathogens. When we are young, the life cycle of a new skin cell is approximately 28 days. As we age this process drastically slows down, leading to the skin appearing dull, dry and “crepey.”
The dermis is where our collagen and elastin live. These are the key fibers that give support, flexibility and strength to the skin, giving it that smooth and youthful appearance. From age 25, our body’s natural production of collagen starts to deplete, causing the skin to show visible signs of aging like sagging, lines and wrinkles.

Finally, our subcutaneous fat layer provides insulation and padding. As we get older, our fat pads thin and fall with gravity, meaning a loss of facial volume, which adds to the “aged” look.
A LaseMD treatment will stimulate collagen production and trigger a natural healing response within the skin, speeding the delivery of vitamins and antioxidants directly to the site they are needed to nourish, repair and further promote healthy skin.
There are many lasers available on the market, but LaseMD is revolutionary for two main reasons. Because the downtime is a fraction of what our clients had to deal with in the past, it means that you can be back to your normal life routine in a day or two after a full resurfacing. Another major perk is that LaseMD is safe for all skin types and conditions, unlike similar laser treatments on the market. And finally, a LaseMD treatment has minimal pain and discomfort so there is no need for a numbing agent, making it a fast and very affordable treatment.
