Laser Skin Rejuvenation / Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin rejuvenation, also known as laser skin resurfacing, improves the texture and tone of your skin to reduce prominent wrinkles and fine lines, while also addressing acne, sun damage, age spots, and other facial blemishes that may affect your complexion. The aging process can result in a loss of skin structure, which may lead to sagging or creases around the upper, mid, and lower face. Additionally, repeated exposure to the sun, acne scars left behind by past breakouts, brown spots, and alterations in pigmentation are all common concerns for patients. These conditions tend to take away from a symmetrical complexion and affect skin texture or tone. Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive solution that utilizes laser heat energy to stimulate the formation of new skin. Heat from the laser also increases collagen production under the skin, leading to improvements in skin elasticity. This innovative laser treatment can achieve a smoother, healthier-looking complexion for patients without enduring any healing time. Patients can opt for laser skin rejuvenation on the face, as well as on different parts of the body, including the chest, back, arms, and legs, to achieve natural-looking results.

Your Laser Skin Rejuvenation Procedure

Laser skin resurfacing can be performed in-office, at an outpatient surgical facility, or a local hospital; this is dependent on the areas being treated, as well as the specifics of your procedure. During your treatment, laser technology is positioned above the target area. Laser energy is delivered to the surface of your skin to carefully remove damaged layers and encourage the growth of new skin. Laser skin resurfacing will also stimulate collagen production in the underlying skin layers to reinforce skin structure and elasticity.

Laser skin rejuvenation may be used alongside facial rejuvenation treatments to enhance skin complexion, including cosmetic injectables, facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, or a forehead lift.

What To Expect After Undergoing Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

Patients may experience slight redness around the target area(s) after laser skin resurfacing. However, there is no downtime required and you are free to resume your day-to-day activities after laser skin treatment(s). Patients are encouraged to avoid sun exposure in the weeks following treatment to allow for optimal healing. Exact guidelines and timetables will be discussed with your plastic surgeon at your laser skin rejuvenation consultation.

Laser skin resurfacing can achieve long-lasting enhancements to the complexion and texture of your skin. Patients can reduce the prominence of facial wrinkling and smooth fine lines with this non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Vs Chemical Peels

Depending on your treatment goals, you may be a better candidate for a chemical peel. During a facial peel, the chemical solution is applied to the skin’s surface and removes the damaged outer layer of skin cells, revealing new, healthy skin underneath. Your doctor can discuss whether chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing are ideal for you. Below is a comparison of these two non-invasive techniques.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Chemical Peels
Uses laser energy to heat the top layer of skin and allow for fresh skin to grow Removes dead skin cells to make way for a fresh skin layer to grow
Addresses facial lines and wrinkles to improve skin tone Different depths are available to address facial wrinkles and lines to improve skin texture
Can be used on numerous skin types Suitable for many skin types
