What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing with our Alma, Erbium, and CO2 Laser Systems can rejuvenate your facial skin with lines, wrinkles, and other skin flaws. Our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter, performs laser skin resurfacing for his patients himself at Xage Medical Spa. You may have skin issues such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation, poor texture, or other conditions that have changed the look and feel of your skin. Sun exposure, pollution, gravity, and the loss of elastin and collagen in our skin can significantly diminish its appearance and health. Laser skin resurfacing at Xage Medical Spa is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to remove damaged skin layers. Sometimes called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is an effective facial treatment for people who want firmer, smoother, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the needs of your complexion, Dr. Porter will customize your treatment for the best results. There is little downtime required for most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Set aside some time for a private consultation for laser skin resurfacing with Dr. Porter today.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Laser Skin Resurfacing Ideal Candidates
You have several factors to consider when deciding which laser peel procedure is best for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is designed for people who are unhappy with their general complexion. If you see skin damaged by the sun, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness troubles, a laser peel treatment can help correct these complexion blemishes. In addition, it works well for patients who have rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. A laser peel isn't recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne outbreaks. In addition, it is important to know that there is a recovery period associated with these laser peels. Certain patients, depending on their skin condition, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique
Let our laser treatments reveal your natural beauty. Dr. Porter can rejuvenate your aging skin with his skillful skin resurfacing techniques. Once you are prepared for your treatment, Dr. Porter will use the laser to work on specific areas like Crow’s feet, brow lines, nasolabial folds, and forehead wrinkles. If your skin needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb certain areas where the laser will target. For the full-face session or more intense laser treatments on specific areas, some type of sedation may be necessary. During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser passes over your skin. You will feel the warm heat from the laser followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser will work to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also promoting new collagen production.
What to Expect with Laser Skin Resurfacing
Your treated skin may appear pink and there may be some swelling and irritation present. This should subside in a few days and the skin peeling process would occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. If you are undergoing a more intense laser treatment, your recovery period will last longer. The treated areas may be protected with dressings and the swelling, burning, and irritation side effects will be more intense. Medication can be prescribed to minimize these side effects. The downtime for intense laser treatment may last several weeks. Regardless of the depth of the laser peel, all laser skin resurfacing patients need to minimize their UV exposure after their treatment and apply sunscreen regularly. Treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel off. It is important to protect your skin from sun exposure. Once the peeling is completed, the treated skin will feel softer while appearing rejuvenated, clearer, and younger.
