Laser Skin Resurfacing

RejuvaPeel™ - Fresh & Renewed
A true laser peel with outstanding results and no downtime! Beautiful skin is within your reach. Consultation Required.

The Laser RejuvaPeel™ performed with an Erbium laser can resurface facial skin with only a few days of downtime. Acne scars, rough texture, fine wrinkles and superficial pigmentation can all dramatically improve with only a few days of redness. It is referred to as a "weekend peel" in some centers. The surface of the skin is changed in a matter of days and deeper layers continue to improve as collagen continues to grow and remodel which makes the skin more firm.

Ablation is best!
Most importantly about these lasers is whether they remove cells or not. Our Erbium laser is ablative, which means "to remove" as it will vaporize the cells and they get collected in a smoke evacuator. By removing the cells we allow new fresh cells to grow in their place. Some other technologies use a wavelength which only heats and kills cells, which then remain for your body to remove in order to heal.

More to tell
We primarily use the Erbium to smooth the skin and remove fine wrinkles. We also find it improving collagen in the dermis which makes the skin more firm. Aging occurs primarily as a result of UV light. This causes collagen to be destroyed which leads to laxity of the skin. There is also abnormal blood flow through the dermis which leads to the formation of telangiectasias, those fine blood vessels which become visible. Pigment problems also occur which can be seen as freckling. All of these disorders are repaired with an Erbium laser peel.

Who is laser resurfacing for?

Laser resurfacing is for people who want to treat:

  • Rough texture
  • Fine lines to moderate wrinkles
  • Superficial Liver spots or age spots (solar lentigines)
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne or chickenpox scars

How do you prepare?

Before scheduling laser resurfacing, you need to schedule a consultation to discuss the factors that determine whether this procedure is likely to work well for you. This meeting generally includes:

  • Your medical history.
  • A review of your skin.
  • Photographs. These photos are for before-and-after assessments and long-term reviews.
  • A discussion of your expectations- your motivations and expectations.
  • An explanation of what laser resurfacing can and can't do for you and what your results might be.
  • Review of pre and post treatment care.

How safe is the Erbium laser?

The Erbium laser is absorbed by skin much more efficiently than a CO2 laser. This leads to less excess heat being produced. This enables us to remove skin cells from the epidermis with less risk of damage.

How long do I need to be out of work having this done?

The typical peel only shows mild redness by day 4 which can be covered up with makeup. We do peels on Thursdays so patients can take off Friday and be back on Monday or Tuesday. Some people completely peel in 3 days, while other can take up to 10 days.

Does this procedure hurt?

Most patients have graded the pain level at 3 to 5 out of 10 with the use of numbing cream.

How do I take care of my skin after the treatment?

A post-peel kit is recommended for you aftercare. All the products you will need are in the kit. The kit is only $21.

Have realistic expectations

Laser resurfacing is an effective treatment for minor facial flaws. For example, it can lessen the appearance of fine lines around your eyes, mouth and cheeks. It can also improve your complexion if you have yellowish or grayish skin tones.

But laser resurfacing has its limitations. It can't remove deep wrinkles or eliminate excessive or sagging skin (jowls). In addition, the effects aren't permanent because as you age, you continue to acquire expression lines — lines that result from the natural movement of your face, such as when you squint or smile. Multiple treatments are usually necessary to meet your skin care goals and maintenance treatments will help to maintain your results.
