Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?

Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing uses lasers and other techniques to remove the top layers of dull, dead skin to reveal the healthy, glowing skin beneath. Lasers are routinely used to resurface and rejuvenate skin, but chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials can also play important roles in helping skin look and feel healthier and more refreshed.

How is laser skin resurfacing performed?

Laser skin resurfacing works by sending pulses of highly focused laser energy to different layers of the skin to treat multiple types of damage. Once the energy reaches the treatment area, it breaks down damaged tissues and gently removes dead, dull layers of skin, revealing healthier skin while promoting a natural healing response to strengthen and improve skin over time.

During your consultation for the fractional CO2 laser treatment, Dr. Bush will run a multi-faceted skin screening to measure the depth of damage before recommending the best possible treatment. RB Laser Lipo & Aesthetics uses non-ablative, fractionated CO2 laser treatments. During your consultation, you will learn why non-ablative laser treatments are best and the particular beneficial aspects of CO2 laser treatments.

Lasers are designed to provide very precise treatments that can be customized to meet the needs and goals of each individual patient. A fractional C02 laser treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and it’s performed right in a treatment room with Dr. Bush. It is a safe, non-ablative laser skin procedure that resurfaces damaged skin to uncover your youthful skin that has been hiding beneath an unhealthy layer.

A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before laser application and Dr. Bush will do so to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. You are required to wear protective eyewear during this fractionated laser treatment, and Dr. Bush will provide you with goggles for this purpose.

As the laser is applied to the surface of the skin, it works well beneath what is visible. This will gradually improve the firmness of the skin as well as improve any volume loss, as collagen and other proteins become refreshed and plump beneath the surface. Recovery time after this treatment is from four to seven days.

What kinds of issues can be addressed with laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments?

Skin rejuvenation techniques can be used to treat:

  • Discoloration and hyperpigmentation like age spots, sun spots, freckles, and brown spots
  • Uneven skin texture or rough spots
  • Removal of scars, including acne scars
  • Loose, lax skin
  • Signs of premature aging including fine lines and wrinkles

Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation can also help skin look brighter and more glowing by eliminating impurities and promoting circulation.

How can I tell which treatments I need to have smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin?

The best way to decide which treatments will provide the best results is to schedule an office visit and consultation for a skin assessment and evaluation. Some people will benefit from a single approach to skin rejuvenation and resurfacing while others may respond better to a combination of approaches, like laser resurfacing combined with facials to nourish skin and keep it smooth, supple, and healthy.

Fractional CO2 laser treatment is excellent for areas like your face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back. It also helps to keep you looking and feeling fabulous. Call Dr. Bush to schedule your appointment for fractional CO2 laser today.
