Laser resurfacing offers fantastic facial skin rejuvenation for skin that has been damaged by aging, sun exposure, and environmental toxins. By stimulating skin rejuvenation, Resurfacing Laser treatment can minimize wrinkles, discoloration, and scars to give your skin a smoother, tighter, healthier, and more youthful appearance.

Resurfacing Laser Treatment Benefits

At Kirsch Dermatology, we use the Sciton Contour Erbium TRL Resurfacing Laser system to provide photorejuvenation. The benefits of this treatment include:

  • Improved Skin Tone: Rejuvenates skin tone and helps lax skin to become tighter and firmer
  • Wrinkle Reduction: Reduces and eliminates fine lines and wrinkles
  • Effective Acne Scar Treatment: Improves the appearance of both small and large acne scars
  • Minimizes Discoloration: Removes age spots (sun spots) and other discoloration
  • Softens Texture: Softens skin texture to give it a more youthful look and feel.
  • Stimulates Collagen: Stimulates collagen formation so that the skin can continue to renew itself over the coming weeks and months

Getting Treatment

Resurfacing laser treatment is performed in our dermatology office. Before the treatment itself, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and a topical numbing cream is applied. The laser feels like a hot rubber band snap as it treats and stimulates the skin tissue. Treatment with Sciton Contour Erbium TRL takes approximately 20 to 40 minutes, and the skin will continue to feel hot for approximately 30 to 60 minutes afterward. A topical cream will be applied immediately after the treatment to minimize any continuing discomfort.

It is recommended that you limit sun exposure and known skin irritants for several days after treatment. Minor side effects such as redness, itchiness, dryness, and mild swelling may occur over the first few days. As the skin heals, some mild flaking may also occur; this is the damaged skin being shed from the body to reveal the newer, healthier skin beneath. Depending on the area treated and settings used, full healing occurs within 4 to 14 days.

Resurfacing Laser Results

Results will begin to be noticeable within the first week and will continue to improve for up to 6 months. These results will be permanent, although natural aging and future sun exposure will continue to affect the skin. Some individuals may need up to 3 treatments to address more severe skin problems. Treatments may be repeated once per month and then annually for long-term skin rejuvenation. These maintenance treatments combined with proper at-home skin care can help you keep your skin healthy long term.
