Resurface Healthy Skin

Laser skin resurfacing is a tried-and-true way to tackle wrinkles, sun damage, and other signs of aging. Laser resurfacing involves using laser energy to vaporize and remove the outer layers of dead, damaged, and rough skin cells, thus paving the way for smoother, softer, and more youthful skin. Laser skin resurfacing can also stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin look firm, reduces discoloration, and improves overall texture and tone.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Corrects:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Textural irregularities
  • Acne scarring
  • Mild facial scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Vascular lesions

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works

Laser skin resurfacing uses focused laser light to gently remove the outer layer of skin, revealing the healthier, younger-looking skin underneath. The uppermost layers of your skin bear the most signs of sun damage, acne breakouts, and vascular lesions, including age spots, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines. As such, once the upper layers of skin are removed, your underlying skin tissues look smoother and more even textured.

Boost Collagen & Defy Aging

Laser skin resurfacing also offers another benefit — collagen production. Laser energy penetrates the deep dermis and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its strength and structure. As you grow older, your body’s collagen production is compromised, leading to wrinkles and skin laxity. Laser skin resurfacing boosts collagen production to reverse the effects of age, making your skin look taut and firm.

The Experience

TruWellnessMD ensures a safe, comfortable laser skin resurfacing experience. The medical provider carefully examines your skin, discusses your goals, analyzes your skin conditions, and curates a personalized treatment plan. They cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort. After adjusting the laser device according to your skin type, the handpiece is moved around your skin to deliver calibrated laser energy. You might feel a warm sensation like a rubber band snapping against your skin.

Downtime: 2 to 3 Days

While the procedure itself is quite short, the downtime afterward can vary. In some cases, patients can resume their daily activities and work immediately. But sometimes, you may need to take 2 to 3 days off work to recover completely. You should also avoid strenuous workouts, direct sunlight exposure, exfoliants, swimming, saunas, and hot tubs for a week.

Duration: 30 to 60 Minutes

Laser skin resurfacing usually concludes within 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment areas, goals, and skin type. Your first session may take longer because our medical providers take the time to understand your goals, examine your skin conditions, and curate a personalized treatment plan, but all following treatments will be extremely efficient.

Anesthesia: Topical

Laser skin resurfacing is performed under topical anesthesia. Before your treatment, the medical provider will apply a numbing gel on your treatment areas to minimize discomfort.

Side Effects: Minimal

You may experience redness, swelling, itching, burning, and mild blistering at the treatment site after laser skin resurfacing. Additionally, you may experience temporary changes in skin color or texture. Most of the side effects dissipate within a few days.

Results: 2 to 3 Weeks

Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent way to improve the appearance of your skin. Results are typically seen quickly, with most people noticing an improvement within a few days. However, the results will gradually improve over several weeks as your body produces new skin cells and collagen fibers. The final results usually appear within 2 to 3 weeks.

Frequency: Every 2 to 4 Weeks

You can opt for laser skin resurfacing treatments every 2 to 4 weeks. Depending on your unique conditions, you may need 2 to 3 treatments for optimal results.
