Laser skin resurfacing helps to rid the skin of etched-in lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, poor skin tone and texture, and a host of other cosmetic imperfections. By removing dead skin and stimulating the renewal of new, healthy cells, the treatment can optimize your complexion, beautifully enhancing your self-image. Treatment areas include the face, neck, hands, arms, chest, and legs.
Innovative, dynamic laser technology for a smoother complexion
Our cutting-edge, state-of-the-art laser devices ensure faster, brighter results, less discomfort, and less downtime. The technology can correct skin damage with ultra-rapid energy bursts that carefully preserve the surrounding healthy skin tissues.

What to Expect During the Procedure
During treatment, potent laser energy is used to not only remove the outermost damaged layer of skin, but also to also jump-start the body’s natural production of collagen — the protein responsible for suppleness and hydration in youthful complexions. Laser skin resurfacing thus accomplishes both short and long-term improvements in your appearance.
Results with laser skin resurfacing gradually become evident, progressing over the course of a few weeks. After two weeks, spots will have faded. At six weeks, there will be a visible improvement in your skin’s overall youthfulness. After three months, your body has had enough time to regenerate collagen, which smooths the skin and gives it a refreshed glow. You can repeat your laser skin resurfacing treatment down the line to maintain your gorgeous new complexion.
After treatment, the skin is coated with a moisturizer and covered with a bandage which is removed within a few days. Prescription pain medications will be provided along with a detailed, personalized aftercare plan. While swelling, redness, and discomfort may be present temporarily, most patients find they can manage their symptoms with over-the-counter painkillers and ice packs.
For the first 2 to 3 days after laser skin resurfacing, your skin may feel tight and warm and you may wonder if your condition has actually gotten worse. This is all normal. Your appearance will improve rapidly by day 4 or 5 as the dead skin cells flake off. Final healing will typically occur after 10 days. You can return to work whenever you feel comfortable being seen.
Both younger and older patients alike can benefit from the remarkable rejuvenation provided by laser skin resurfacing. The procedure is ideal for reducing many of the most troubling imperfections that affect the complexion, including acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin tone. Good candidates are of sound mind and body and have a realistic and positive outlook towards what laser skin resurfacing can do for them.
Laser skin resurfacing probably isn’t a good match for you if you have active acne, deeply entrenched facial folds, or an excess of sagging skin. Our team of qualified, credentialed skincare professionals will examine your complexion during your private consultation and create a treatment plan that will have the most chance of successfully addressing your aesthetic concerns.
Is laser skin resurfacing painful?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to resurfacing, which numbs the targeted area. You can also be given mild oral sedatives prior to the treatment if you prefer. This will help you relax and enjoy a stress-free experience.
Can laser skin resurfacing be combined with other treatments?
It is common to pair laser skin resurfacing with other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Some patients may undergo blepharoplasty, a brow lift, or a facelift prior to their laser skin resurfacing session. After laser treatment, it may be possible to undergo BOTOX® or dermal filler enhancement for even better results.
How is laser skin resurfacing different from other skincare treatments?
Laser resurfacing offers among the highest precision when it comes to diminishing many age-related complexion concerns. However, it may be a matter of personal preference as to which approach would work best in your unique case. We offer a wide variety of skincare solutions, and can effectively help guide you to the best choice during your private consultation in South Florida.
