Innovations in laser skin technology now allow our skin care experts to address a variety of dermatological conditions in a manner that is safe, efficient, minimally discomforting, and highly effective. Our team uses laser treatments to improve the appearance of skin, remove unwanted hair, remove tattoos, and more.
Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of skin by treating minor skin flaws. It can decrease the appearance of lines and improve the complexion in patients with scars and sun damage. We offer two lasers for skin rejuvenation.
- The fractional CO2 laser delivers all the benefits of ablative laser resurfacing without the harsh side effects typically experienced with CO2 lasers, as it vaporizes the tissue in small areas, leaving surrounding areas uninjured. The laser’s light energy encourages natural collagen production and decreases the appearance of wrinkles. More than one treatment is usually necessary to achieve optimal results. Your aesthetician will be able to provide an estimate for the number of treatments you may need.
- The Erbium-YAG laser removes the upper layers of skin so that, upon healing, wrinkles are diminished. Patients who are treated with this laser often experience more rapid healing, but less dramatic results than those who opt for the fractional CO2 laser. Three to five treatments are usually required to achieve optimal results. Your aesthetician can provide an estimate for the number of treatments you need.
Laser resurfacing does provide long-term improvements to skin tone, texture, and pigmentation. However, patients are advised to use the proper protection against sun exposure and other environmental factors that cause damage to the skin. Daily skin care is also important in maintaining the results of laser resurfacing.
