Laser Skin Resurfacing

The root of the word complexion is complex, meaning both combination and intricate. It is interesting that the word came to represent the appearance of one’s skin. To restore beautiful skin, the solution must address the combined, intricate features of the skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Olson offers laser skin resurfacing in Gilbert, AZ, as a versatile medspa treatment option for addressing the complexities of skin health and beauty. He will evaluate your skin and formulate a treatment plan to renew your complexion.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Imagine how radiant your skin could look if you could remove superficial layers of damaged, blemished skin with extreme precision while stimulating the growth of healthy new skin and collagen. Imagine gaining smooth, firm, glowing skin without surgery. These are among the benefits of laser skin resurfacing. One of the most effective treatments to accomplish these goals is the Halo® fractional hybrid laser skin resurfacing treatment.

Laser skin rejuvenation can be performed on nearly every part of the body, including the face, hands, arms, legs, chest, and back. Treatment can improve your skin by:

  • Diminishing acne and trauma scars
  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Correcting sun damage and age spots
  • Evening out irregular pigmentation
  • Eliminating moles and birthmarks
  • Complementing facial surgery
  • Improving acne
  • Removing warts

Women and men with early signs of sun damage may benefit from a less intensive laser skin rejuvenation treatment called Clear + Brilliant®. You can also ask if treatment using Forever Young BBL™ (BroadBand Light) would be more effective for you.

Do You Offer Alternatives to Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

An alternative to laser skin rejuvenation, our Renuvion® skin resurfacing treatment provides complete skin rejuvenation with a single treatment. These treatments also provide skin tightening when used in the following areas:

  • Forehead and brows
  • Around the eyes
  • Lower face, including lip lines

Some patients prefer microneedling, which we offer using the Eclipse MicroPen™. This procedure uses tiny needles to create precise micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin. Microneedling requires little to no downtime.

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Painful?

This outpatient procedure involves minimal discomfort because the skin is numbed first. Patients usually say it feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin with each pulse of the laser. After treatment, the skin feels warm similar to a sunburn.

How Long Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Take?

It usually takes about 30 minutes for a laser skin resurfacing treatment, but larger areas can take up to 2 hours. For complete results, you may require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart.

What Can I Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing results in redness and peeling that vary with the intensity of treatment. Sometimes there is itchiness, swelling, discomfort, or crusting.

How Do I Take Care of My Skin After Laser Resurfacing?

After your procedure, protecting your skin is the top priority. You will be instructed to:

  • Apply ointments
  • Cleanse the skin regularly
  • Avoid perfumes and certain soaps

Protecting your skin from the sun is especially important for those in and around the Scottsdale-Phoenix area who have had laser skin rejuvenation treatment.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Downtime usually requires a couple of days to a little more than a week. Treatments can be modified to suit your goals for aesthetic improvement and recovery time. Once your skin has healed, you can cover any remaining pink coloration or peeling with makeup.

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Permanent?

Results do not last forever as the natural aging process cannot be stopped. To maximize the benefits of your treatment, take care of your skin by eating right, making sure you are hydrated, avoiding sun exposure, and sticking to a daily medical-grade skincare regimen.
