Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our doctors at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery are committed to offer the latest in laser technology. Through the magic of laser technology, wrinkles and blotchy pigmentation of aging skin can be effectively treated and greatly diminished. Laser surgery involves a specialized beam of light energy, which is absorbed by water molecules in the skin causing tissue tightening through the healing process.

Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing is especially effective to remove surface wrinkles of the face and neck. Common treatment sites are the fine wrinkles around the eyes, pucker-lines around the mouth and surface creases of the entire face and neck. This treatment is performed with a “super-pulsed” carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, which scans hundreds of precise, tiny micro-beams over the skin surface. These tiny laser spots heal quickly, allowing shrinkage of the skin through regeneration of collagen, smoothing wrinkles and providing a fresh, new skin surface. This treatment is often used in combination with eyelid surgery or facelift.

Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Resurfacing treatments effectively target the surface layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger-looking appearance. Fraxel® laser is frequently used to treat acne scarring and uneven skin tones due to aging and sun damage. Using penetrating microscopic laser columns, the laser treats only a fraction of the skin tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched which promotes rapid healing. The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. For the next 3 to 6 months you will continue to see improvement as the deeper layers of skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
