How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Laser Skin Resurfacing can be done on any part of the body that needs addressing. Fractional Laser targets water in the skin, which creates a thermal effect causing the collagen molecules to heat up and regenerate new collagen, therefore stimulating fibroblast activity. Since it does not harm tissue during the treatment, it keeps the skin completely intact causing minimal peeling and results in a more tolerable treatment and a quicker recovery time.*
Laser Skin Resurfacing is an ideal treatment for anyone with serious skin concerns such as acne scarring, surgical or trauma scars, lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks. This procedure provides patients with renewed skin that looks smoother and healthier.*

- Improve Acne & Surgical Scarring*

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
Appointments are scheduled every 4-8 weeks with each appointment taking 20-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
A topical numbing agent is applied to the area prior to treatment that dulls sensation; however, patients will typically feel a mild pinprick sensation along with some heat. Ice is applied to the area immediately after treatment which alleviates any discomfort.
Based on your customized treatment plan your treatment quantity will vary. The more correction required, the more treatments will be needed; typically between 3-5.
What Results Will I See?*
Results are typically visible about three weeks after your laser skin resurfacing treatment. Results can last for about six months before you may need maintenance sessions. Results include smoother, younger, and firmer-looking skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
Most patients will experience mild swelling, redness, and thickening to the skin’s texture in the treated area that lasts between 3-5 days. During this time, it is recommended that patients avoid activity that will increase the temperature of the skin such as using a steam room, performing vigorous exercise, and exposing the area to the sun unprotected.
