What is Facial Resurfacing?

While other skin rejuvenation treatments are temporary or use synthetic ingredients to improve your skin, facial resurfacing is considered to be one of the most sophisticated advancements in non-surgical skin improvement.

Utilizing high-intensity, controlled laser technology, facial resurfacing improves your skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Fractionated, or pixilated, lasers have the longest wavelength on the market and feature settings that are safe for a variety of skin types and tones.

During facial resurfacing, columns of skin are removed from treated areas, leaving surrounding skin intact and undamaged. The laser energy converts to heat underneath the skin surface, stimulating collagen production for improved structure and strength of the skin.

What Does Facial Resurfacing Treat?

The microchannels left in the skin by the laser are painless and invisible to the naked eye, but they stimulate the body to repair itself, resulting in a layer of fresh, new skin.

Facial resurfacing can also effectively treat a variety of skin conditions, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Loose skin
  • Texture irregularities
  • Dull skin tone
  • Collagen-deficient areas

When Will I Notice Results?

After the short healing process, patients generally notice visible improvements in damaged or aging skin. As the process of collagen production can take several weeks, full results may not be noticed for a few months after treatment. Although facial resurfacing cannot completely stop skin conditions from recurring, regular treatment and a good skincare regimen can effectively manage your cosmetic concerns.

Are There Any Side Effects?

After facial resurfacing treatment, most patients experience flushed skin or redness akin to a sunburn for the first week. This is normal and a good sign that the healing process has been initiated. The CO2 fractional laser has been clinically-tested and is approved for use on multiple skin types and tones.

During your consultation with Dr. Singhal, factors such as your overall health, medical history, individual skin condition and cosmetic goals will be assessed in order to determine if facial resurfacing is the best course of treatment for you. Certain skin types or contraindicating conditions may require further evaluation, and you will be informed of any possible risks or complications prior to treatment.
