Laser Skin Resurfacing

What is Laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure that uses lasers to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. It is a popular treatment for people who are looking to improve the texture and tone of their skin, as well as reduce the appearance of acne scars, age spots, and other blemishes.

Laser skin resurfacing, which is also called laser skin rejuvenation or laser peel, is one of many ways to “resurface” the skin. In fact, at Blue Spiral Medical Spa, we offer several non-surgical methods of resurfacing the skin. These include treatments such as microneedling, which employs a mechanical method of resurfacing, and light treatments such as our BBL (Broadband Light), which utilizes the energy from light to resurface the skin. 

Laser skin resurfacing uses the energy from a laser to stimulate the production of collagen and is the most comprehensive approach to skin resurfacing.

Different types of laser skin resurfacing

There are several different types of laser skin resurfacing, including ablative and non-ablative laser treatments.

 Ablative lasers work by removing the outer layers of skin, which helps to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps to keep skin looking firm and youthful. 

Non-ablative lasers, on the other hand, work by heating up the deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen production without removing any skin.

What makes Blue Spiral Medspa laser skin resurfacing different?

At Blue Spiral Medica Spa, we have invested in the industry-leading laser platform by Sciton called Moxi.

  Sciton Moxi laser skin resurfacing is a laser treatment designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin by removing the outer layers of damaged skin and stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that helps to support the structure of the skin.

One of the main differences between Sciton Moxi laser skin resurfacing and other laser skin resurfacing treatments is that it uses a combination of two different lasers: a non-ablative laser and an ablative laser.

 The non-ablative laser is designed to penetrate deep into the skin without damaging the outer layers, while the ablative laser removes the outer layers of the skin to reveal smoother, healthier skin underneath. 

This dual-laser approach allows the treatment to be customized to the specific needs and concerns of the patient and can be used to address a wide range of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and more.

Another difference is that the Sciton Moxi laser uses a cooling system to help minimize discomfort during the treatment and reduce the risk of side effects. The treatment is typically well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing only mild redness and swelling after the procedure.

Overall, Sciton Moxi laser skin resurfacing is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the signs of aging, making it an appealing option for those looking to rejuvenate their skin.

What to expect during laser skin resurfacing treatment

Before the procedure, the patient’s skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and a numbing cream may be applied to reduce any discomfort. The procedure itself typically takes between 30 minutes and two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. 

After the procedure, the skin may be red and swollen, and the patient may experience some mild discomfort or pain. The skin may also be sensitive to the sun for a period of time, so it is important to use sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure.

What is recovery like from laser skin resurfacing?

Recovery from laser skin resurfacing typically takes several days to a week, depending on the type of treatment received and the patient’s individual healing process.  

During this time, it is important to keep the treated area clean and moisturized and to avoid picking at any scabs or crusting that may occur.  

The patient may also be advised to avoid certain activities, such as exercise or hot showers, to allow the skin time to heal properly.

When will I see the results?

The results of laser skin resurfacing are typically visible within a few weeks of the procedure, as the skin begins to produce new collagen and the treated area becomes smoother and more youthful-looking.  The results of laser skin resurfacing can be long-lasting, although the length of time the results last can vary depending on the individual’s age, skin type, and other factors. 

 Remember, the effects of laser treatment do not stop the aging process.  Most individuals sustain their results by creating a maintenance plan with pre-determined treatment intervals.  These maintenance plans can be discussed with our State-Licensed Medical Aesthetician, Tabatha Bourchier, LE.
