‘Laser’ is an acronym: light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.
Lasers are a source of high intensity light that is focused into small spots with very high energy.
The first lasers used to treat skin conditions occurred over 40 years ago. Since then, major advances in laser technology have revolutionized their use in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions. Nowadays, we not only treat problems, but we are able to achieve enhanced skin wellness and overall rejuvenation.
Whether it’s on TV, radio or the internet, we are barraged daily with ads for a broad spectrum of laser and light technologies on the market. As with any industry, not everything available is optimal or even top-tier. After years of research and intense scientific analysis, the laser experts at ZENA Medical have collected a thoughtful array of the finest lasers in the world. These tools allow us to target and treat nearly any problem in the skin with extreme precision and optimal results.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?
It's all about using beams of light. Your surgeon uses the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time.
Laser skin resurfacing's targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hypopigmentation, or a lightening of skin for procedures such as laser acne scar removal.
The laser beam used in laser resurfacing will remove your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
