How it works:
Laser skin resurfacing works by safely penetrating deep into the skin, breaking down uneven pigmentation and redness and stimulating the production of collagen to give skin a more youthful appearance. Each of our treatments offers a computer-controlled laser peel of the dermal layers that improves skin tone, fine lines, crepiness, uneven pigmentation and surface imperfections by triggering a natural healing response and collagen renewal.
Skin resurfacing with heavier settings is a tried-and-true approach to skin rejuvenation, as it precisely removes layers of skin to correct fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin and acne scars, soften pucker marks and repair skin discoloration. The results of laser resurfacing are generally quite dramatic and long-lasting.
