Laser skin resurfacing is a highly sophisticated technology that counteracts visible signs of aging. Using individual columns of light, laser resurfacing can rejuvenate surface irregularities without damaging the surrounding tissue. We offer 3 types of ablative resurfacing; Pixel CO2, Pixel Perfect (Erbium) and Pixel RF (radio frequency), and one non-ablative option called ClearLift.

Who Should Get Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing treatment is suitable for adults of all ages. You may want to consider laser resurfacing if you are bothered by:
- acne scars
- lines and wrinkles
- age spots
- sun spots
- uneven skin texture
- uneven skin pigmentation
A variety of skin tones and types can benefit from laser skin resurfacing. After completing laser resurfacing, your skin will regrow smoother and firmer.
Ideal candidates will possess good overall health and realistic expectations. During a consultation, we can determine if laser resurfacing is the right option for you.
What to Expect During Your Laser Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure that can take from thirty minutes to two hours to complete, based on the extent of your procedure. Laser resurfacing can be painful, so the treatment area will be numbed with local anesthetics. Oral or intravenous sedation can be administered to ensure your comfort during treatment.
Using a handheld device, your cosmetic doctor will deliver pulses of laser energy to the treatment area. As the laser passes over the treatment area, it penetrates through the outer layers of skin. Damaged skin cells are destroyed and healthy cell growth is stimulated.
After Your Treatment
A laser balm will be applied to your skin after treatment to minimize the risk of infection. This should remain for at least 24 hours. Your doctor will also provide you with topical treatments to enhance healing. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home.
Most patients required four to seven days off from work to recover. Normal activities can be resumed in about a week. Your skin will appear very red or sunburned for the first few days and then appear slightly pink for several weeks or even months after treatment. This redness generally lasts longer for fair-skinned patients. The final results will not be apparent for three to five months, but it will last for many years.
Understanding the Risks of Laser Resurfacing
During your consultation, we will discuss all possible complications and steps you can take to prevent them. Some possible complications associated with laser resurfacing include swelling, extended redness, skin irritation, abnormal healing and scarring.
