What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
New and innovative, laser skin resurfacing is a safe, non-invasive treatment option for eliminating wrinkles without surgery. The treatment uses targeted lasers to create a superficial burn that stimulates new skin growth. As the new skin replaces the old, your face will naturally regenerate into looking smoother and younger.
What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Do?
Since it is a non-invasive treatment option, laser skin resurfacing is safe and effective for most patients with all skin types. Laser skin resurfacing is also very versatile and can be used to treat any of the following:
- Immediate skin tightening after just one treatment
- Wrinkles cause by natural aging process
- Reduces the size of pores
- Sun damage
- Skin discoloration from scars or age spots
- Stimulation of collagen growth for up to six months
Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Patients with any degree of sun damage or desire for tighter skin are good candidates for laser resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing is safe for many darker skin types as well. Patients who have taken Accutane in the past 12 months or have a history of keloid scarring should not undergo treatment.
On your treatment date, a topical anesthetic is massaged into your skin to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure. During the procedure, a handheld device will be used to navigate the laser over the desired treatment area.
After treatment, most patients report feeling a little “sunburned” across the treated area. This feeling typically subsides after a few hours.
Recovery from Laser Skin Resurfacing
Patients do not typically require any change in normal routine following the procedure. However, your skin will peel in five to six days, revealing tighter, youthful looking skin. To ensure lasting results, be sure to apply sunscreen following the procedure.
What is the cost of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
As an elective procedure, laser skin resurfacing is not generally covered by most health insurance policies. As a result, we offer many payment options including most major credit cards, personal check, cash and financing through CareCredit® and Prosper®.
We will honor written quote for procedures from any board certified plastic surgeon. Listed pricing is all inclusive – no hidden fees (includes pre-op, post-op visits and fees for the surgeons, facility, and anesthesia).
