Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure utilized to minimize and soften deep lines, wrinkles, and scars, and improve skin texture and color
This laser procedure allows us to treat skin with carefully calibrated light pulses to remove undesired skin cells and allow fresh skin cells to replace them. This entails going down and ablating (with light and heat energy) layers of surface skin one at a time, the depth depending on the condition being treated,
Following treatment, the treated skin layers’ peel over a period of from several days to several weeks, leaving a smoother, tighter, and younger looking skin surface. More than one treatment may be necessary for desired results.
If you desire a quicker surface “touch-up” for fine lines, tightening, and skin rejuvenation…. with virtually no downtime, consider the LaserMinipeel, a “lighter” version of laser skin resurfacing.
Frequently, laser resurfacing can be combined with other skin enhancing procedures to achieve even better results.

Q What does it feel like?
Due to the surface ablation of skin layers, there is some discomfort. We utilize several methods, if desired, to reduce discomfort, including pre-medication, cooling fans, and numbing lotions Most patients find the discomfort easily tolerated and well worth the results to come.
