Laser Skin Resurfacing

In laser skin resurfacing a laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation.

Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Often, the procedure is done in conjunction with another cosmetic operation, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.


Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body's own natural healing process, replacing the old damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show more even tone. The next 3-6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. The results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin conditions and skin care.

Desired outcome are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatment is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment with your preferred downtime.
