What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Do For You
July 18, 2017
Laser skin resurfacing is extraordinarily versatile, due to the number of cosmetic lasers available and the variety of skin conditions they can treat. Here at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, we offer laser resurfacing treatments that can target fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, melasma, birthmarks, skin tone and texture, and more.
Which laser skin resurfacing treatment is right for you will depend on a number of factors, including your tolerance for downtime and which specific skin care issues you wish to address.
We offer both an aggressive CO2 laser that can produce dramatic results after one treatment, but which will require some time off work to heal, and a gentle IPL device which may require more than one treatment for optimal results but requires no downtime.
Our CO2 laser (Lumenis UltraPulse TotalFX) can treat:
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Pigmentation problems
Our IPL (intense pulsed light) device can treat:
- Spider veins
- Enlarged pores
Both of these laser treatments also work well to help even and smooth overall skin tone and texture. Combined with a targeted skin care regimen, your skin can become youthful, healthy, and rejuvenated.
Can Laser Resurfacing Be Combined with Other Treatments?
Yes, laser skin resurfacing used in combination with other surgical or non-surgical treatments can help achieve more comprehensive results. Popular treatments that laser skin resurfacing can be combined with include:
- Face or Neck Lift: A face or neck lift will help tighten and lift sagging skin, but will not improve your overall skin tone or texture. Combining a facelift and laser procedure will allow you to obtain an all over youthful glow.
- Botox®: If you’re having an IPL treatment for pigmentation or redness concerns, Botox for wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and at the corners of the eyes is popular to have at the same time.
- Fillers: Laser resurfacing can address many issues, but it cannot restore volume to your face. Lip and cheek augmentation can be combined with laser resurfacing for better skin plus higher cheekbones or plumper lips.
