Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing gently removes the top layer of your skin to eliminate damage and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. These non-surgical treatments get rid of imperfections in your skin that tend to develop with age, such as scars, wrinkles, and brown spots. 

What can skin resurfacing treat?

Skin resurfacing treatments can significantly improve the tone and texture of your skin without surgery or injections. Some of the most common benefits of skin resurfacing are that it:

  • Reduces sun damage
  • Minimizes age spots
  • Fades hyperpigmentation
  • Rejuvenates skin
  • Tightens skin
  • Treats acne and acne scars
  • Shrinks pores
  • Enhances lips
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes dark circles

Many skin resurfacing treatments also help reduce the appearance of redness if you have rosacea.

Are there different types of skin resurfacing?

You have many options when choosing a skin resurfacing treatment for your skin, including:

Laser skin resurfacing

The team uses Cynosure® lasers to eliminate skin damage. Cynosure lasers are ideal for all skin types and colors for the treatment of sun damage, brown spots, acne, broken capillaries, and more. This laser energy penetrates your skin’s deepest layers to stimulate collagen and elastin, tightening and firming your skin from within.

IPL photofacial

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses varying wavelengths of LED light to treat surface damage while tightening the deepest layers of your skin. IPL photofacials brighten skin, minimize pores, treat acne-causing bacteria, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles to dramatically improve your skin tone and texture.

Am I a candidate for skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing treatments are excellent options for those who want to improve their skin’s appearance and health without surgery, injections, and other more invasive treatments.

There is virtually no downtime after skin resurfacing, so you can typically return to your normal activities shortly after treatment.

Because skin resurfacing is non-surgical, you can return for additional treatments, such as dermal blading, shortly after. Dermal blading carefully removes peach fuzz, dead skin cells, bacteria, and unwanted hair from the surface of your skin.
