What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing with our erbium laser safely and effectively treats many skin conditions. Some of the benefits include the following:

  • Helps reverse damage caused by sun exposure
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves the skin’s tone and texture
  • Shrinks enlarged pores
  • Treats a greater range of skin tones
  • Minimizes hyperpigmentation
  • Requires minimal downtime
  • Reduces acne scarring

One advantage of the erbium laser is that it targets—and precisely removes—the targeted tissue with minimal damage to the surrounding skin.

Dr. Park’s Approach:

Laser skin resurfacing is often a ‘homerun’ type procedure. It renews the skin in a way that is difficult to achieve with any other modality. The most common areas I treat include:

  • Lower eyelids
  • Around the mouth
  • Entire face

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

A laser skin resurfacing treatment removes the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, with concentrated pulsating light beams. At the same time, the laser heats the underlying skin, called the dermis, triggering the body’s natural healing response. This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers essential for smooth, firm skin.

Laser skin resurfacing’s targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hypopigmentation (skin lightening) after procedures such as laser acne scar removal.

Combining Laser Skin Resurfacing With Other Treatments

Even though laser skin treatments produce radiant, youthful-looking skin, patients often combine the procedure with other nonsurgical treatments, such as laser hair removal and vein treatments. In addition to quality skincare products, injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® fillers can be part of an overall skincare regimen designed to renew, preserve, and protect your skin.

Financing Options

It’s easy for qualified patients to finance their procedures through CareCredit®, which offers attractive payment plans for women and men choosing elective cosmetic surgery or nonsurgical treatments.

How Long Does Skin Take To Heal After Laser Resurfacing?

Even though the erbium laser is gentler than other skin-resurfacing lasers, such as a CO2 laser, it still causes the sensation of a mild sunburn. You can expect redness and swelling and experience itching or stinging for a few days after the procedure. Makeup can be worn in about 1 to 2 weeks. The treated skin takes about a week to develop a crusty surface, which peels and reveals smooth, firm skin.

The results can be remarkable, with reduced wrinkles and improved color, tone, overall softness, and smoothness. Sun protection is the key after the procedure. Laser skin resurfacing can really be a revitalizing procedure with impressive changes.
