Laser Skin Resurfacing
What’s Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a facial aesthetic procedure usually performed to tighten the skin of the face as well as neck and chest, improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, discoloration and unsightly spots. Laser energy removes outer layer of skin which is damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of healthier looking skin.
Dr. Rayham utilizes several types of laser skin resurfacing modalities. These include Traditional Ablative CO2 skin resurfacing, Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing techniques utilizing Lumenis Active FX and Reliant Fraxel Re:Pair fractionated CO2 resurfacing techniques or traditional Fraxel® laser.
Gold standard of laser resurfacing has long been considered the traditional ablative CO2 treatment. This skin resurfacing modality provides great results with significant downtime of about 3 weeks after the procedure. Main advantage of newer fractional laser resurfacing modalities include shorter post-procedure down time and speedier recovery without significant difference in results. Dr Rayham will be happy to discuss with you various indications for laser resurfacing and address your expectation. Some lasers may be inappropriate for darker skin complexions.
