Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment. It’s highly beneficial as a rejuvenation treatment that tightens skin, removes wrinkles and fine lines, evens out discoloration, smooths out rough skin, repairs sun damage, and much more. Laser skin resurfacing can manage deeper skin conditions. These may include hyperpigmentation, pigmentation, scars, and acne scars. Our skin experts apply unique technology to target specific areas of the skin, such as around the mouth or eyes, or treat the entire face. Our laser skin treatment can also treat your neck, chest, arms, and hands. C02 laser treatment uses targeted pulses of laser light that penetrate the skin’s surface. The water inside the skin cells usually absorbs these beams. When this happens, it vaporizes the skin’s superficial layer (epidermis). The middle layer of the skin (dermis) heats up, triggering the development of new collagen fibers. When this treated area heals, you’ll start noticing new, firmer, and smoother skin. Depending on the issue you need to address, your provider might apply a fractional laser, a different type of CO2 laser. However, a fractional CO2 laser is more superficial than a conventional CO2 laser. As such, its primary use is to address blotchy skin or fine lines.

Tetra CO2 or cool peel is an advanced resurfacing laser that targets hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, skin tone, texture, and scarring. It promotes collagen and elastin and can be tailored for all skin types. Unlike traditional resurfacing peels from the past, Tetra is virtually painless with the use of topical numbing and leaves you with shortened downtime.

What to Expect with Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing’s primary role is to “resurface” your skin. The process involves the precise layer-by-layer removal of damaged skin. It stimulates new skin cells to grow, which gives your skin a tighter and fresher-looking surface. As such, laser skin treatment is highly effective at tackling discoloration, fine lines, scars, pigment, wrinkles, and sunspots. It also helps with crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead lines, sagging skin, spider veins, texture, and more. Our friendly team will make you feel comfortable knowing that your treatment is administered safely.

Preparing for Your Skin Resurfacing Treatment

It would be prudent to avoid smoking for two weeks before your treatment. Since smoking tends to leave the skin dry, it might lead to a less effective procedure. It will also prolong your healing process, which you don’t want. Abstain from taking alcohol and supplements such as ibuprofen, vitamin E, and aspirin since they cause excessive blood thinning. Also, avoid tanning beds or stay out of the sun for several weeks before receiving laser skin treatment and for a few weeks afterward. The process will make your skin more tender and, thus, more prone to sunburn. It would help to wear hats as a protective measure after your laser skin resurfacing treatment.

Skin Resurfacing Treatment

This outpatient procedure usually takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the specific issue you need to address and the area of your skin receiving treatment. You may experience some pain with CO2 laser resurfacing. The level of pain you encounter will depend on the degree and depth of resurfacing and your pain tolerance. Our medspa adopts specialized technology to control the depth of resurfacing, and, therefore, ensure minimal pain. We’ll often provide you with local anesthetic to curb pain and make you relax. Before the treatment starts, we’ll clean your skin thoroughly and offer you special eyewear to safeguard your eyes from the laser. The process involves the provider moving the laser wand steadily over the targeted skin area.

After Skin Resurfacing Treatments

Immediately after your laser skin resurfacing session, you may experience possible itching, dryness, peeling, and feeling sunburned with redness. We’d recommend you ice the treated area with an ice pack for about 15 minutes to prevent inflammation. You may also need to apply an antibacterial ointment to the treated skin. Ensure that you leave this on as per the instructions, usually for 24 hours. Remember to keep off smoking and stay out of the sun for two weeks after treatment. It’s also worth noting that you may need to schedule a follow-up treatment session, depending on your treatment plan and what you want to accomplish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser skin resurfacing treatment focuses on removing the problematic outer layer of skin, which stimulates new skin to grow. The procedure can eliminate scars, wrinkles, lines, pigmentation, rough skin, and more.

Individuals may encounter a range of side effects after their laser skin resurfacing session. These may include sun sensitivity, dryness and peeling, itching, skin that feels raw, swelling, and some skin discoloration. Make sure you receive your treatment from a reputable, certified provider to reduce your risk of complications.

Most patients generally get silky-smooth skin, which lasts between 3 and 5 years after receiving skin laser therapy. Patients typically maintain their treatments by ensuring regular returns for touch-ups or additional laser skin treatments.

Some people who receive laser skin resurfacing treatments may see results instantly. Depending on your preferred laser treatment plan, you can notice a difference within a few weeks. Although you might not see immediate improvement after your session, your initial results will keep improving throughout the year.

The number of treatment sessions you’ll require primarily depends on your skin condition and specific needs. Since it may take up to four weeks for your skin to heal, people who need multiple sessions often limit their sessions to once a month. If you’ve always taken proper skin care, you may only require a single treatment to eliminate all blemishes.

Tetra CO2 with CoolPeel

4esthetics Lounge uses Tetra CO2 laser treatment with CoolPeel for skin resurfacing treatments because it offers numerous benefits over other laser treatment technologies for skin resurfacing. These benefits include more scanning patterns; minimal downtime; application to delicate and vulnerable areas like the eyes; and unmatched precision. Tetra CO2 has 4 pulse modes, including 3 fractional modes; PSD technology; spray mode, which minimizes pattern overlap; and allows more speed or faster treatments. These advantages and settings allow our skin experts to customize the treatment to match your unique skin type and needs. Tetra CO2 also features CoolPeel. CoolPeel is the only technology that applies laser skin resurfacing treatment without causing thermal tissue damage. It improves skin texture, reduces the size of large pores, reduces sun damage, and reduces the appearance of fine lines. CoolPeel only focuses on the superficial layer of your skin tissue, which is much safer and requires less healing time and downtime.

People who receive a CoolPeel prefer quicker recovery and can schedule multiple CoolPeels instead of taking one or two weeks off for an extensive laser skin resurfacing treatment. The CoolPeel option requires two to three days of downtime. At this stage, the only recognizable difference is that you’ll have normal-looking skin, but it will feel a bit rough to touch for up to two weeks. After you pass this healing stage, your skin will look more even and feel tighter and softer. CoolPeel laser’s results are less drastic than a single aggressive treatment. It would help to take a series of CoolPeels for maximum results. When receiving this treatment, you’ll have minimal pain. You often don’t need anything to help with the discomfort. We also provide a topical numbing cream for people who want it. It differs from conventionally aggressive laser treatment sessions, where you mostly need a sedated IV or a full general anesthetic.
