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.



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.

Dr. James, and Mandy are absolutely fantastic. They jumped through a ton of hoops to help me get dupixent. which is a long process especially with my insurance company being difficult. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with any dermatology issues. They really care about helping their patients.

About Us
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Your laser skin resurfacing cost will vary based on the type of treatment you get. In your initial consultation, Dr. James will understand your concerns and goals before discussing the different types of resurfacing. Then, he can help you choose your resurfacing treatment and talk to you about costs. Providence Dermatology regularly offers treatment specials and packages, so be sure to ask during your appointment.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
Dr. James can help you choose which laser resurfacing option fits your concerns and goals during your initial consultation. What treatment is best for you will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin issues, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery might also be a deciding consideration when you create a treatment plan. When in doubt, it's best to start with a milder treatment to see how you like your outcomes and adjust as needed for your second appointment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. James or someone on his team will talk to you about how you can help your skin heal following your laser treatment. The number one rule is don't peel or pick flaking skin. This can create lasting damage including scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which includes shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We can recommend an ointment to help soothe treated areas.
