What Is Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of a variety of imperfections, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Sun damage & age spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven texture

How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

We use the Fotona laser system to target your skin’s imperfections. Unlike chemical peels or dermabrasion, this method is incredibly precise. It allows us to resurface the top layers of the skin to reveal the healthier, untouched layers as well as target deeper areas to promote collagen and elastin production.

What to Expect From Skin Resurfacing Treatment

Your experience will depend on what method is used. Our custom treatments vary in depth and level of downtime. Regardless of what kind of treatment you are pursuing, we will begin by numbing the area, either with a topical or local anesthetic.

Once the area is numb, we will proceed with your treatment. Depending on the scale of your treatment, it may take anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours.

Your skin may feel tender, hot, and swollen after treatment. Redness can last anywhere from 1 – 5 days. An occlusive ointment is applied to the area to keep it protected and hydrated. Our team will then provide you with care instructions to follow during your recovery. It’s important that you follow our instructions very carefully.
