Skin resurfacing is a commonly requested procedure among both men and women. Treatments are generally quick and easy, and allow us to address a wide range of skin concerns. Image Surgical Arts offers a variety of treatment options tailored to your specific goals. Let’s take a closer look at why more and more of our patients are seeking non-surgical skin resurfacing.
#1: Improve Overall Skin Tone & Texture
Patients can see long-lasting results with skin resurfacing. Improve overall tone and texture by triggering the body’s natural self-healing processes. Long-term collagen production can keep skin looking and feeling happy and healthy.
#2: Comfortable In-Office Appointments
Skin resurfacing has come a long way in the past several years. Treatments are generally well-tolerated among most patients thanks to improved technology and topical anesthetic. For deeper skin resurfacing you may opt for IV sedation to keep you comfortable throughout.
#3: Custom Treatment Options
Each skin resurfacing treatment is customized according to your individual needs and goals. Dull, damaged skin is carefully exfoliated layer by layer until desired results are achieved. Patients can opt for a single, deeper session with more dramatic results or choose several lighter sessions to achieve the results they want.
#4: Reverse Sun Damage
Laser skin resurfacing can help reverse the effects of all those years of fun in the sun. Tackle otherwise hard to treat hyperpigmentation, sun spots, freckles, and facial redness with a single resurfacing procedure. Pigmented lesions will gradually start to fade in 1-2 weeks following treatment.
#5: It’s Not Just for the Face
Many patients are surprised to learn that skin resurfacing can be done throughout the face and body to restore a more youthful appearance. The most commonly treated areas for skin resurfacing include the face, neck, hands, and chest.
#6: Can Be Combined with Facelift Procedures
While a facelift may be the gold standard for age-related concerns like skin laxity and wrinkles, there are things a facelift can’t solve on its own. Adding skin resurfacing to your facelift procedure can address a variety of complexion concerns. Ultimately, it enhances the end-result without any additional downtime.
#7: Combat Facial Redness & Rosacea
Facial redness and rosacea are often hard to tackle on their own. Skin resurfacing offers a new option for patients suffering from these bothersome conditions. Laser treatments can reduce facial redness and blood vessels while also minimizing thick patches of skin commonly associated with rosacea.
#8: Safe & Effective for Nearly Anyone
Laser skin resurfacing is generally considered a safe and effective option for patients with nearly all skin types, textures, and tones. Each treatment is personalized according to your individual needs. Patients with active acne or very dark skin tones might not be suitable candidates for skin resurfacing.
#9: Fewer Side Effects
At Image Surgical Arts, we use powerful, yet gentle Erbium laser treatments. This unique laser allows us to produce significant results without the burning or scarring commonly associated with other full-surface ablative laser treatments. Recovery is often much faster and side effects are typically mild and short-lived.
#10: Minimal Downtime Treatments
Skin resurfacing is a highly custom procedure that offers minimal downtime for many patients. With lighter treatments, you can get back to most regular activities in just 3-days. Deeper sessions may require more recovery time, but generally no more than one week. The great thing about skin resurfacing is the ability to create custom treatments that can easily fit into your busy lifestyle.
