Laser skin resurfacing is a cutting edge technique for removing the damaged outer layers of the skin to reveal a pristine new complexion free from spots, wrinkles and other aesthetic flaws.
This safe, non-surgical treatment can not only address sagging skin, but can also help provide a refined skin tone and texture. Using an innovative handheld device that emits short pulses of potent energy, your practitioner can help you to feel years younger in just a few sessions.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel, lasabrasion, or laser vaporization, involves short pulses of light targeted at specific areas of the skin, which helps remove unwanted or damaged skin sections. Only one layer is removed at a time, which helps reduce the chance of hypopigmentation, a visible lightening of the treated skin. The epidermis is removed and the underlying skin is heated and stimulated to promote the growth of collagen fibers. After the skin heals, your complexion will be smoother and firmer.
We offer the following laser skin resurfacing modalities:
- Active FX
- Deep FX
- Total FX
- Scaar FX

What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?
Acne, aging, and sun-worshipping can leave you with scars, age spots, blotches, lines, creases and wrinkles that add years to your appearance. Laser skin resurfacing is a technique to precisely remove one layer of skin at a time so that new skin cells form to give the complexion a lighter, more youthful looking surface. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on the neck, chest, and hands, as well as on the face. With state-of-the-art laser technology, our surgeon has a new level of control in skin resurfacing that makes extreme precision possible, particularly in the most delicate areas. Many minor facial flaws can be improved with skin resurfacing, including:
- Liver spots
- Sun damage
- Aging skin
- Acne or chickenpox scars
- Enlarged oil glands
- Grayish or yellowish skin tones
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead
Who is a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is an effective technique for reversing the effects of aging as well as sun damage. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you are in good health, have realistic expectations, and have:
- Sun damaged skin with wrinkling around your mouth and eyes and laxity in your lower eyelids;
- Scars that have made the surface of your skin uneven;
- Blotchiness, brown spots, and irregular changes in skin color; or
Precancerous skin growths.

What can I expect after my treatment?
Recovery time will be different for each client, based on your individual skin sensitivity and healing abilities. We can provide a numbing cream before your session, as well as pain relievers after treatment, which can help make the whole process comfortable and stress-free.
For about the first week after laser skin resurfacing, your skin will feel dry and it may peel off. As you shed this damaged layer, your new refined complexion will begin to peek through. Within two weeks, all swelling, redness and tenderness will have disappeared and you will be fully enjoying your new improved skin texture.
