Frequently Asked Questions
Laser Skin Resurfacing
What is Laser skin resurfacing?
The laser precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking. These lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments.
What machine do you use?
We use the SMAXEL MACHINE or the Smart Fractional CO2 laser.
How does it work?
The fractional CO2 laser takes the CO2 laser beam and pixelates that beam into thousands of tiny little shafts of light. These tiny shafts of light penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin then repairs those tiny shafts by pushing out the old sun damaged skin and replacing it with new skin.
Is there downtime?
Yes, you will need to take the rest of that day off to ice and care for the treated area. Since these are deeper treatments, plan and prepare on 7-10 days of healing before your skin fully recovers from the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on the extent of your sun damage, scarring or wrinkles and how fast your skin can heal and recover from the Laser skin resurfacing treatment.
When will I see results?
You will see some immediate results but you won’t see the full results for 3-6 months.
