How does facial resurfacing work?
All facial resurfacing treatments work by using a controlled safe method to in essence “damage” the skin. By doing this, the body’s own healing mechanism kicks in which includes expediting the production of collagen and elastin. As we age, collagen and elastin production dramatically decreases which can cause the appearance of lines and deep wrinkles. With hyperpigmentation as we remove the damaged top layer and new cells are produced underneath they eventually will cycle upwards giving a fresh new “undamaged” glow. The treatment option used will determine how the actual procedure is conducted.
What issues can be fixed with resurfacing treatment?
Our resurfacing treatments can be used to fix an array of skin issues. For example, they can eliminate deep wrinkles, and scars, along with finer wrinkles and lines. Hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and uneven texture. It can also be effective against other types of superficial skin concerns.
What is the best facial resurfacing procedure?
Most experts agree that laser skin resurfacing is the most effective option for most patients. This is because it works quickly, has proven rejuvenating effects, and provides long-lasting results. The treatment time is relatively quick, and there is little discomfort involved. Our experienced master esthetician and medical director will advise you during your consultation which treatment they would recommend for your skin type and condition to give you the most efficacious treatment.
How to prepare
The first step is to consult with our team to ensure that laser skin resurfacing is right for you. Our experienced team will give their recommendations for your treatment and give you pre and post care instructions at this time.
How long does it take?
Treatment time will vary depending on the technique used and the area to cover. For example spot treatments for hyperpigmentation are possible rather than treating an entire face. Again, expectations and details will be discussed at your consultation.
What to expect after treatment
Post care and healing will be discussed at the appointment time and aftercare ointment if necessary will be provided. The procedures we provide require little to no downtime. You may experience a little redness, some swelling and dryness as the skin heals. Collagen can take up to 6 months to rebuild, therefore you should continue to see improvement in your skin for a few months.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments required depends on your situation and the issues you are treating.
How long does facial resurfacing last?
The results of facial resurfacing will typically last for several years. However, the results are not permanent, and the procedure will have to be done again to continue seeing the effects.
Laser vs microdermabrasion vs chemical peels
All of these procedures exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin but in a different manner. They will all effectively improve the tone and texture, reduce blemishes, minimize acne scars, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Since there are so many options to consider, it is best to consult with our professionals to find the treatment that best suits your needs.
Can a facial resurface skin?
A traditional facial will exfoliate your skin, improving its texture but not resurface your skin to the same level that the aforementioned services will.
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
TReatment costs vary in price dependant on the type of procedure and number of treatments required. We have several different packages and plans available that can be discussed at your consultation.
