Deep Skin Resurfacing

Safe and effective deep skin resurfacing

What is Deep Skin Resurfacing?
The effects of sun damage and age take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. A Deep Skin Resurfacing can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and in fact it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth. Though there are different types of lasers used to do skin resurfacing, the Erbium Laser is widely regarded as the safest, most effective laser available. This is due to the fact that the depth of tissue removed is controlled by computer and can be increased or decreased according to the condition being treated.

Example of Deep Resurfacing

How does it work?
The Erbium Laser safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by your physician. The depth of treatment will depend on the skin condition, your desired outcome and expectation for downtime. Because Erbium Laser can affect tissue with very specific depth precision, your physician can treat your skin with the exact amount of energy needed – no more, no less. Treating skin with a laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, which improves the skin's thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, which will give your skin a younger rejuvenated appearance.

What conditions can be treated with the Erbium Deep Resurfacing Laser?

  • Deep Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Solar spots
  • Actinic Keratoses
  • Poor skin tone/texture

What are the results?
The top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin's texture, tone and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4 to 6 months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.
