Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a treatment that can treat a wide range of skin conditions and ultimately restores your skin, giving it a youthful & healthier look.
As we age we start to see noticeable lines and wrinkles and if years of enjoying the sun has left its mark with dark spots, freckles and a leathery texture, a skin resurfacing treatment is definitely right for you. Laser skin resurfacing can also treat enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, textural irregularities, sagging skin around the face and neck. Absolutely all of these common skin conditions can be addressed with a laser skin resurfacing treatment.
How does it work?
We use the ICON 1540 laser for our laser skin resurfacing treatments because it is extremely safe and delivers laser light micro-beams which target just below the epidermis of the skin. The laser micro-beams initiate the body’s natural healing process thus stimulating the production of new collagen. This new collagen improves the tone, texture & elasticity of the skin. Think of this treatment as a Non-Surgical Face Lift.
When will I see the results?
Patients will begin to notice visible improvements to their skin a few days after their first treatment. Followed by a continuous improvement over the next 3-10 days.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is more effective when performed as a series of treatments. We recommend 3-4 treatments 2-4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. If you’re in Las Vegas and are interested in a Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment schedule a free consultation today.
What to expect during your treatment
After your consultation we will provide you with a topical numbing cream. When you arrive for your skin resurfacing treatment, please arrive with a cleansed face and be sure to apply the topical numbing cream 1 hour before your appointment. During the treatment, multiple applications of the laser are applied directly to your skin. In some cases a second pass is done.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments take between 15-30 minutes to perform depending on the size of the treatment area.
Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Hurt?
You will feel mild discomfort during your treatment. Which is why we provide you with a topical numbing cream. The laser has a built in cooling mechanism in the hand-piece itself and Ice Packs can be provided during the treatment upon request and to further reduce any discomfort, we apply ice rollers to the skin during the treatment. As far as discomfort goes, there’s really nothing to worry about.
When can I resume normal activity?
After your treatment your skin will feel mildly sunburned and sensitive for the next 24 hours. Although your skin does not peel, there may be a small amount of flaking which is why we recommend using plenty of moisturizer.
Why we use the ICON 1540 for Laser Skin Resurfacing
We use the ICON 1540 laser for our laser skin resurfacing treatments because until now, only two varieties of laser treatments were available for cosmetic enhancement, ablative and non-ablative Lasers. Traditional ablative lasers vaporize the skin at a very high temperature. Although these laser skin resurfacing treatments can be effective they come with the cost of significant downtime and healing period. The Laser that we use (ICON 1540) combines the potency of ablative lasers with the gentle safety of a non-ablative laser. The ICON 1540 laser is a revolutionary non-invasive laser therapy designed to dramatically improve skin texture and appearance.
You can also pay monthly for your Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments. We’ve partnered with Lending USA to offer convenient payment plans and financing options to all of our patients.
