LASER SKIN RESURFACING

Laser skin resurfacing treatments like PicoSure and Fraxel can improve the tone, texture and radiance for aging, sun damaged or scarred skin. These treatments are for people who want to look younger without dramatic changes or extended downtime.

The PicoSure laser with the focus lens array represents the state of the art in skin rejuvenation without downtime. It is a new and innovative method for treating the skin of the face, neck, chest, and hands. The treatment is FDA approved and is particularly effective at improving sun spots, excessive skin pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars.

The Fraxel Restore Dual Laser is designed for patients who want to obtain long-lasting improvement in the overall appearance of their skin and who do not wish to have downtime. The Fraxel Restore Dual can be used to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. Depending on each patient’s unique needs, the laser treatments will improve fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, abnormal brown pigment, brown spots, acne scars and other facial scars.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PicoSure is a state of the art skin rejuvenation laser. It uses a revolutionary technology called “pico-second lasers” in which the laser fires for an extremely short period of time measured in trillionths of a second.

Every patient that might benefit from skin rejuvenation has a unique set of needs. However, with the PicoSure, nearly every skin rejuvenation patient can be improved. PicoSure will improve the sun spots and abnormal brown pigment that result from excessive sun exposure, improve fine lines and wrinkles, and treat acne and other types of scars. And unique to the PicoSure, these results are achieved without redness, downtime, or pain.
No, PicoSure treatments do not have any downtime. Patients can resume all of their normal activities immediately after leaving the office. There is no downtime and patients need not take any time off from work to have these treatments.
The number of PicoSure treatments needed will depend upon the condition being treated. Patients undergoing treatment for unwanted pigmentation and sun spots generally require 2-4 treatments. Patients undergoing acne scar treatment usually need 3-5 treatments.

Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.

Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin

Reduction of unwanted brown spots
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for healing and the production of new collagen to replace damaged tissue.
