About Laser Skin Resurfacing

When it comes to skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, you have several options, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and more. Laser skin resurfacing provides powerful and reliable rejuvenation. The laser energy penetrates deep into the skin to smooth wrinkles and resurface imperfections. Dr. Lisiecki uses the cutting-edge technology for laser skin resurfacing, ensuring safe and natural results that align with your expectations.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a powerful skin rejuvenation technique. The procedure involves delivering short pulses of light energy into the skin’s deeper layers to exfoliate the damaged epidermis and stimulate collagen production. This procedure removes the skin tissues with scarring, freckles, age spots, and other problems, paving the way for smoother, softer, and more flawless skin. It also stimulates collagen production, making your skin look firm, tight, and youthful.

Dr. Lisiecki performs laser skin resurfacing using cutting-edge laser technologies depending on your skin type and goals. Some lasers remove a layer of skin to a precise depth, as determined by the doctor, to stimulate healing and resurfacing. Others remove columns of skin from the epidermis to facilitate collagen production and pave the way for smoother skin tissues. More aggressive lasers have greater effects, but generally involve a longer recovery period.

The benefits of laser skin resurfacing:

  • Non-invasive treatment — no injections, incisions, or scarring
  • Causes minimal pain and discomfort during treatment
  • Improves overall skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Paves the way for smoother, softer, and healthier skin tissues
  • Minimal post-treatment downtime

Dr. Lisiecki’s laser skin resurfacing techniques

Laser skin resurfacing is a highly personalized procedure — Dr. Lisiecki will select the appropriate laser technique and the depth of treatment based on your unique skin quality and conditions. During the procedure, the laser device will deliver short pulses of light energy into targeted areas of the skin, where it will be absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin. The procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes.

Side effects and recovery after laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing usually leads to post-treatment swelling, tenderness, discomfort, irritation, and stinging sensations. Your skin will also be photosensitive for a few weeks, so you should avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen. Redness can last from days to weeks, depending on your skin and the laser used. Please follow the cosmetic provider’s aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal recovery.
