A Quick Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing

Whether you’ve got specific skin concerns in mind or are simply looking for overall improvement, it can be overwhelming to determine the best skincare treatment for you. One type of treatment that has proven to be very versatile and effective is laser techniques. Laser skin resurfacing, in particular, is a great option to consider for many different concerns. Here’s a quick guide to this treatment option.

WHAT IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated laser energy pulses to remove affected skin layer-by-layer. It’s sometimes called a laser peel, and commonly uses a CO2 or erbium laser system. This process can have a lot of benefits like turning over new skin cells and revealing a healthy layer of skin underneath. Additionally, this process generates heat in the deeper layers of the skin, causing it to tighten and create new collagen.

AM I A CANDIDATE?

Laser skin resurfacing can be an effective option for many different skin concerns. These can include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Sun damage
  • Pigmentation
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged pores

Your natural skin tone is one of the factors that will determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. This is because darker skin tones can come with a risk of hyperpigmentation during recovery from certain laser treatments. The best candidates for laser skin resurfacing are people who have lighter skin. However, alternative laser platforms can sometimes be better options if you have a darker skin tone, and we can recommend the right treatment plan for you. If you have sagging skin or active breakouts, we can help you consider other options.

HOW MUCH DOES LASER SKIN RESURFACING COST?

Because laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure, it is not usually covered by major health insurance policies. The cost of your laser resurfacing treatment can depend on factors like the laser system used, the number of treatments needed, and additional costs for facilities or appointments. You’ll receive a full estimate of your costs during your consultation with our skincare specialists.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients require a package of laser treatments for the best results, although you’ll receive a customized treatment plan during your consultation. You’ll likely see results after your first treatment, but these can be compounded with additional treatments. Most patients see long-term results with a package of treatments and maintenance appointments later on.
