Skin Resurfacing – For life events that leave behind more than just memories
Our state-of-the-art Fractional laser is designed to improve skin irregularities, including the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, and other pigmented lesions. This non-ablative laser for skin resurfacing allows for quick treatment sessions that can tackle tough skin conditions with little downtime.
The premier laser uses light (microbeam) that penetrates deep into the dermis to breakdown old and damaged tissue, ultimately triggering the body to create new tissue at the site. The adjacent, healthy skin remains untreated, while the treated area regenerates healthier skin that is more even in color and texture. This laser is much less invasive than an ablative laser procedure, resulting in quicker recovery time. Typically, a series of treatments is recommended; generally, 2-5 sessions depending on the area of treatment. The sessions are typically spaced 3-5 weeks apart.
How it Works
Collagen fibers get weaker with age. With laser skin resurfacing, collagen cells can be woken up using strong pulses of light. Light emitted by the laser is also used to gently melt away dead skin cells, revealing young, beautiful skin underneath.
Our Doctors Say...
We love working with this fractional laser. It can truly change how a client looks and feels about her body! It’s extremely rewarding to help those with previous cystic acne watch as their scars lessen in intensity and the same goes for stretch marks. Helping moms to fade the appearance of their stretch marks is a great win!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, Laser skin resurfacing treatments are generally safe when completed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist. It's important to schedule a consultation with your practitioner before hand to discuss their experience and make sure you feel comfortable and confident with the provider.
Absolutely! Laser skin resurfacing removes skin, layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface.
On average, the results should last several years but ultimately depends on how you maintain your skin. Someone who uses medical grade skin products afterwards will see their results last a lot longer than someone who does not use any products. Also, sun exposure, genetics, general health, postmenopausal vs premenopausal, smoking, and alcohol consumption all influence the duration of benefit from the laser resurfacing.
