WHAT IS LASER SKIN AND SCAR RESURFACING?
Skin resurfacing with a laser at Allurant Regenerative Medical Spa is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that uses a mixture of heat and ablation to eliminate dead and damaged skin layers using the cutting-edge FemiLift Pixel CO2. The procedure is performed for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Sometimes called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered a great treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Based on the condition of the skin, the laser will be customized for best results. There is some downtime associated with the majority of laser skin resurfacing sessions. Any concerns or questions can be reviewed in our San Diego, CA practice during your assessment and consultation.
SKIN AND SCAR RESURFACING FAQ
How much do laser skin and scar resurfacing treatments cost?
Your laser resurfacing with FemiLift Pixel CO2 cost will differ based on the type of treatment you get. During your consult, our team will take the time to understand your skin problems and goals before reviewing the types of resurfacing available. After this, we can help you choose your treatment and discuss costs. Allurant Regenerative Medical Spa regularly runs skin treatment specials and discounted packages so ask for more information during your appointment.
What’s the best type of resurfacing for me?
Our aesthetic team can help you choose which skin resurfacing option is best for your concerns and goals during your consultation. What treatment is best for you will depend on the condition of your skin, any skin concerns, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. The length of recovery time may also be a deciding consideration when you create a treatment plan. When in doubt, it is best to start with a lighter treatment to see how you like your results and decide if you want something stronger for your next treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
A professional on our staff will talk to you about ways to help your skin heal following your treatment. Utilizing the FemiLift Pixel CO2, downtime is reduced by a lot. The most important rule is do not peel or pick your skin. Doing this can cause long-term damage, like scars. You should forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We can recommend a cream to help soothe and heal treated areas if needed.
Should I get laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or a dermabrasion?
After listening to your concerns, we will help you decide if laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is best for you. Although all three rejuvenate the surface of the skin, each has its own pros and cons. During your consultation, we can discuss each choice and make a recommendation for your treatment.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the resurfacing type you choose, you might need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deep laser treatments will provide longer-lasting results; however, they will require a lengthy recovery period. You should tell us how often you are willing to come back for appointments so we can take this into account when suggesting a resurfacing plan.
