full field RESURFACING

Take your resurfacing to the next level & erase the years of sun damage with the ultimate in laser peels.

Target large pores, superficial texture and dull lifeless skin to reveal your inner glow on the outside.


At Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre, we use the versatile Fotona™ laser for full field ablation. Full field ablation involves treating the entire surface of the skin to slough-off pigmentation and textural irregularities with medium to moderate downtime.


  • Safe for all skin types
  • The downtime is relative to your skin concerns (up to 7 days)
  • Can address dull, lifeless skin with uneven texture
  • Skin resurfacing results without surgery or chemicals


The Fotona™ Full Field Resurfacing at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre can be customized depending on your skin concerns and desired outcomes. The laser uses Er:YAG energy to remove the superficial layers of the epidermis that can tend to build up overtime causing dull, lifeless skin.

Other examples of full field skin resurfacing are the CO2 Laser and Sciton®

How much downtime will I have with Fotona™ Full Field Resurfacing? 

After a discussion with your skin technician they will determine the best energy level to treat your concerns while bearing in mind your social calendar. They can either build a treatment plan that is slow and steady with minimal downtime (a little redness for a day) all the way up to a deep resurfacing whenever you have that extra time to spare.

You will have approximately 48 hours of redness that resembles a sunburn. Cold vinegar compresses can be applied for comfort and Tylenol every 4 hours is acceptable if needed. After 36 hours the redness will start to subside and the abnormal cells will gradually peel and slough off. A light exfoliation can be done on day 7 to smooth off the peeling skin.
