Laser resurfacing is a noninvasive skin care treatment that uses laser heat and energy to improve your skin’s overall appearance and treat specific flaws or blemishes.
The team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center uses the versatile elos® Plus laser for laser resurfacing, which combines laser energy and radiofrequency energy for a more dramatic effect.
The energy from the laser passes through your upper layer of skin and reaches the deep tissue layers below. It stimulates collagen production to make your skin firmer, stronger, and smoother from the inside out.
Laser resurfacing can also remove the uppermost layer of your skin to rid your skin’s surface of damage or features you may find unattractive.
Depending on the laser mode that the team uses to treat your skin, you can get a wide range of benefits from your laser resurfacing treatment.
They evaluate your skin and ask about the features that you want to treat before deciding which laser applicator to use. Specific features treatable with laser resurfacing include:
It might take some time for your skin to heal completely after laser resurfacing, but you can resume most of your normal activities and daily routine right away.
The improvements in your skin’s quality from laser resurfacing can last for years at a time, especially if you are careful to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
The Elos Plus laser includes several modes. The team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center evaluates your skin type and asks you to define your treatment goals before deciding which mode to use for your skin.
They might also combine more than one mode for a more dramatic effect. The options are:
Sublative laser treatments specialize in textural irregularities like wrinkles, lines, and rough skin. The laser creates a matrix of tiny dots on your skin where it delivers energy. Your healthy skin near the targeted dots heals the tissue damage from the energy.
Sublime laser treatments combine radiofrequency energy and laser energy to stimulate collagen production, tighten your skin, and improve your facial contours. Using Sublime, you can lift and tighten the skin around your eyes, cheeks, and neck. These areas often show prominent signs of aging like wrinkles, lines, and crepey skin.
The SR applicator allows you to get a photofacial with the elos Plus device. A photofacial uses scattered light instead of concentrated laser light to address spider veins and pigmented lesions like freckles, age spots, and sunspots.
