Skin Resurfacing

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a laser treatment that smoothes and firms your skin using a CO2 fractional laser. It’s an advanced treatment that’s more aggressive than intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacials and skin tightening, so it’s especially well-suited for more pronounced wrinkles.

What types of lines and wrinkles does laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser skin resurfacing treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles of all varieties, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and lines around your mouth. This treatment is often recommended for even difficult-to-treat wrinkles.  

If you’re looking for a nonsurgical, minimally invasive way to recapture a dramatically younger appearance, laser skin resurfacing might be the treatment for you. 

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

In laser skin resurfacing, your Sanger Avenue Aesthetics specialist uses the handpiece to deliver a series of tiny fractional laser microbeams into your skin where you have wrinkles. 

The laser essentially creates columns in your skin, which are microscopic holes that remove damaged skin, while also stimulating skin renewal and collagen growth in your deeper, dermal skin layers. After laser skin resurfacing, your body’s innate healing powers go to work, gradually replacing your old skin with new tighter and firmer skin. 

How long does the treatment session last?

It can vary based on your treatment needs and how many wrinkles you’re treating, but in general, laser skin resurfacing sessions take as little as 30 minutes. Your specialist at Sanger Avenue Aesthetics tells you exactly what to expect. 

How long does recovery take after laser skin resurfacing?

After laser skin resurfacing, your skin heals relatively quickly, thanks to the advanced technology of the fractional laser. You can resume regular activities in as few as four days. Your Sanger Avenue Aesthetics specialist gives you specific recovery advice that’s tailored to you. 

How many treatments do I need?

Generally, you only need one laser skin resurfacing session because it’s such a powerful treatment. Once you achieve your desired results, your Sanger Avenue Aesthetics specialist helps you choose a skin care routine and other maintenance treatments to preserve your youthful look long-term.
