What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses light and heat energy to improve the appearance of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing can help with the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Textural irregularities
- Acne scars
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser to target deep layers of the skin, causing controlled damage to the tissue. This damage triggers the body’s natural healing process, including the production of new collagen and elastin.
The new collagen produced by laser skin resurfacing can help heal skin damage and improve signs of aging for a more radiant complexion.
What to expect at your appointment
First, your provider will clean and numb your skin. Then, they’ll use Sciton’s cutting-edge Moxi laser system to target the outer layers of your skin, called the epidermis and dermis. This process can cause some discomfort, especially in sensitive areas such as the upper lip. It may feel similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
After treatment, your skin will be slightly red and swollen. You may experience “sand paper” texture during the skin renewal process. These side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few weeks. To help speed up healing and reduce discomfort, be sure to follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions carefully.
The results of the procedure are usually visible within a few weeks and continue to improve over time. You’ll experience full results between three and six months following your final appointment. Results are generally long lasting, and most patients will not need annual maintenance.
