Laser Resurfacing

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses light-based thermal energy to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, as well as tighten skin and balance skin tone. Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of many skin flaws.

How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

Shelly and her highly-trained team uses the Smartskin+™ Micro-ablative Skin Resurfacing workstation, an advanced, customizable laser treatment option. It uses carbon dioxide (CO2) laser energy to target layers of the skin beneath the epidermis (outermost layer). The laser energy penetrates below the surface of your skin to promote collagen and elastin production and rejuvenates existing tissue to give your skin a clearer, smoother, tighter appearance.

The Smartskin+ laser is highly customizable so that Shelly can control the amount of energy and the depth it reaches to provide the results you’re looking for. It can treat many areas of the body, including the face, neck, décollatage, and hands. Laser resurfacing helps improve the appearance of numerous skin issues, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Uneven skin pigmentation
  • Sun damaged areas
  • Age spots
  • Rough texture
  • Acne scars and blemishes
  • Warts

As one of the most powerful and effective laser treatments available for overall skin rejuvenation, it can even markedly reduce deeper wrinkles in just one treatment.* With Smartskin+, Pure Skin Aesthetic & Laser Center offers you the best, state-of-the-art laser technology available.

What Can I Expect During a Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure?

During your skin resurfacing treatment, you’ll relax comfortably right in the office. Depending on your level of comfort, a topical anaesthetic may be used so you don’t feel the laser. Most men and women compare the feeling of the laser energy to the tiny snap of a rubber band.

Shelly or one of the other trained medical aestheticians uses a handheld device to deliver laser light to the layers below your skin’s surface. Pulses of light heat the skin, then as the healing begins, new collagen and elastin will begin to regrow in the treated areas, so you’ll see more youthful skin over time.

It’s normal to have some redness and swelling after the procedure, but typically these symptoms go away in a few days as your skin heals. Shelly provides instructions for how to care for your skin at home after the treatment, as well as how much downtime you’ll need to schedule for your particular situation.
