What Is ADVATx®?
ADVATx® features a combination of laser wavelengths, each of which is focused on addressing specific concerns.
Clear combines yellow (589nm) and infrared (1319nm) laser energy to eliminate rosacea, acne, acne scars, and undesired vascular abnormalities such as telangiectasias, hemangiomas, and venous lakes, restoring the skin to a healthier and younger-looking state.
Bright combines yellow (589nm) and infrared (1319nm) laser energy to improve skin tone and texture, targeting the hemoglobin as well as dyschromia seen in sun-damaged skin while at the same time reducing fine lines, limiting oil production and shrinking pore size.
What Does ADVATx® Address?
ADVATx® skin resurfacing can be used to treat a range of issues, including:
What to Expect From Treatment
ADVATx® uses soft, nanosecond pulses during treatment. The interval between pulses allows for the diffusion of heat, resulting in a gradual increase in the target area’s temperature. As the heat in the target area increases, the surrounding tissue is preserved – making the use of cooling systems unnecessary. Treatments take little time and result in the improvement of skin texture and reduction in hyperpigmentation issues.
No numbing cream is needed during treatment and no downtime is needed after. ADVATx®’s two-wavelength system and nanopulse technology allows us to address areas of hyperpigmentation with pinpoint precision. Treatments take little time and results are long-lasting. Several sessions may be needed to get the best outcome. We will discuss and structure an ideal treatment protocol during your initial consultation to make sure you get the most out of your time with us.

ADVATx® Skin Resurfacing FAQs
What is ADVATx® Skin Resurfacing and why is it a premier choice for laser skin resurfacing?
ADVATx® is a premier technology for laser skin resurfacing due to its advanced handpiece that delivers precise laser energy to the skin’s surface. This energy vaporizes the outer layer of dead skin cells, stimulating the growth of new collagen and revealing younger, smoother skin underneath. ADVATx® is a safe and effective treatment that can provide long-lasting results.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing uses a special handpiece that delivers precise laser energy to the skin’s surface, vaporizing the outer layer of dead skin cells. The body’s natural healing process then removes these dead cells and stimulates the growth of new collagen, which helps improve the skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.
Is laser skin resurfacing painful?
Most patients describe laser skin resurfacing as feeling like a mild sunburn, and it is generally not painful. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the skin before the treatment to help minimize any discomfort.
How many sessions of laser skin resurfacing will I need?
The number of sessions required for optimal results will depend on the severity of your skin condition and your individual goals. Most patients require between 3-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
What can I expect during laser skin resurfacing treatment?
During the treatment, a special handpiece will be passed over your skin, delivering the laser energy. You may feel a mild warmth or tingling sensation as the laser energy is applied. The treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

How do I prepare for laser skin resurfacing treatment?

Be sure to discuss any medications or medical conditions with your skin care expert prior to your treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing is an ideal treatment for individuals who want to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars, and uneven skin texture.

How soon will I see results after laser skin resurfacing?
