Ablative V. Non Ablative Fractional Laser (Fraxel, Mixto, Active, Etc.)
I know this has been asked before...I am considering one of these procedures for age spots, folds and fine lines. Obviously, the no down time with the non abalative sounds appealing; however, what happens to the coagulated tissue if the skin is left intact? I assume it has to break down, dissolve, heal then rebuild? I would think that vaporized tissue would heal better since it would need to only heal then rebuild? Plus 3-5 treatments at 3 days v. 1 treatment at 7-14 days equals the same.
