What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with a laser at Providence Dermatology is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to eliminate damaged surface skin layer by layer. The treatment reduces facial lines and wrinkles and improves skin irregularities, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Also known as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is considered an effective treatment for people desiring clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. The laser may be customized accordingly based on the patient's skin needs. There is some downtime required for most laser skin resurfacing facials. Dr. James utilizes the revolutionary Harmony XL PRO, Hybrid®, and CO2 lasers. Depending on your needs, Dr. James may also recommend a lighter treatment with a non-ablative laser, which does not remove any skin. Any concerns or questions can be reviewed with Providence, UT Dr. Travis James during the consultation.
What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At Providence Dermatology, we know that the skin may become increasingly dehydrated, flat, and expressionless as we age. With laser skin resurfacing treatments, we can provide our Providence, UT patients a chance at new skin with a procedure that provides many wonderful benefits:
- Minimized appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimization of pores and inconsistent skin texture
- Reduced appearance of scars and sun damage
- Improved confidence and self-efficacy surrounding your skin's appearance
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Before you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense laser resurfacing session, you may be given a topical retinoid for a few weeks before your laser procedure at Providence Dermatology. The retinoid helps prep the skin for more effective results. Medication will be suggested prior to the treatment to help lessen discomfort for greater relaxation during your appointment. If your skin only needs mild correction, local anesthesia may be applied to numb certain areas of the face. Some form of sedation may be used for the full face or more intense laser treatments. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over the skin, precisely targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. You may feel heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser removes damaged and dead skin cells while prompting new collagen production.
The lighter treatment option, or non-ablative laser, does not remove any skin. While it does disrupt the surface, patients will leave our office with skin that appears pink and slightly swollen. The milder, non-ablative laser stimulates deeper layers of the skin to initiate increased collagen growth. With this treatment, the patient will have minimal to no downtime.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
I went in for a CO2 laser treatment for acne scarring on my nose and cheeks. Dr. James was very receptive to working on the areas that were most bothersome. I am currently 7-weeks post treatment and have been very pleased with the results thus far. My skin is smoother and less red. Dr. James is a very friendly and skilled doctor to work with. I encourage anyone looking to undergo laser treatments to seek out Dr. James for their future procedures.
