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.

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
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.
