Laser Treatments and Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What are laser treatments and skin resurfacing?

Laser treatments use short, concentrated beams of light on irregular skin areas. The laser removes precise areas of your skin layer by layer, revealing healthier skin underneath. Lasers can improve your complexion if you have scars, redness, or sun damage, reduce wrinkles, and remove unwanted hair.

Can laser treatments and skin resurfacing improve acne scarring?

As if the memory of acne breakouts isn’t enough, some people are left with acne scars as a permanent reminder. Acne scarring is difficult to conceal with makeup, but laser treatments can improve your complexion and minimize or remove scar tissue.

A MicroLaser Peel® uses a special laser to address acne scars and other conditions on the top layer of your skin. In addition to acne scarring, MicroLaser Peel treats:

  • Freckles and sun damage
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Mild wrinkles and fine lines
  • Keratosis

The peel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to reveal skin with improved texture and complexion. 

Can laser treatments and skin resurfacing fix spider veins?

Sciton ClearScan is an ideal laser treatment for improving the appearance of broken capillaries, spider veins, and general skin redness or discoloration. All skin areas can be treated with ClearScan but the most popular treatment areas are the face, neck, legs, and chest.

What laser treatment is best for improving the overall appearance of my skin?

ProFractional Therapy is an ablative skin resurfacing treatment that offers maximum results with minimal downtime. The team will discuss your cosmetic goals and customize your laser treatment based on your skin condition.

ProFractional Therapy treats only a portion of your skin in a treatment session, allowing the surrounding untreated tissue to help promote rapid healing and the creation of collagen to improve the overall skin condition.

InfiniSkin uses radiofrequency energy through a patented ComfortFlow microneedle for maximum patient comfort. The energy targets the dermis layer below the skin, where wrinkles originate, to rebuild collagen. 

InfiniSkin doesn’t damage the top, visible layer of skin. As collagen builds over the next several weeks after your treatments, your skin takes on a more youthful appearance with fewer wrinkles.

Exilis Treatment

While the best results appear after a series of treatments, most people see an improvement in as little as one treatment. The team will advise you on the best course of treatments for your body and your individual needs.
