Can one treatment address all your facial skin concerns at the same time? With laser skin resurfacing, you can see improvements in skin tightness, texture, and clarity. This customizable treatment removes old, damaged cells and triggers collagen production for firmer, smoother skin. 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

At Levy Dermatology, we use the Sciton® multi-purpose erbium:YAG laser for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. This highly customizable laser can provide several treatment modes to address different skin concerns. They range in strength from mild laser peels to intensive ablative resurfacing. Your Levy Dermatology team will help determine what type of treatment will give you the results you want.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Ablative skin resurfacing works by removing the outer layers of skin. This process gets rid of sun-damaged, hyperpigmented, and other skin-dulling cells. The laser energy that resurfaces the skin heats the deeper layers of the dermis. The heat triggers these cells to start producing more collagen, firming and lifting the skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. The new cells give your skin a smoother, brighter surface. 

How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The cost of laser skin resurfacing depends on your location, your provider, and the type of laser used. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of ablative skin resurfacing is $2,509. This price may not include all fees and expenses, so we will discuss your specific treatment pricing during your consultation.

What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?

Laser skin resurfacing can resolve a wide range of skin concerns. These include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dullness
  • Skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage

You can expect the results of ablative laser skin resurfacing to last several years. Using consistent sun protection and a dermatologist-recommended skincare routine will maintain your results and help keep your skin looking youthful. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Because the Sciton® laser offers so many customization options, most people can have laser skin resurfacing. Most skin types and tones make good candidates. You may not make a good candidate if you have a history of forming abnormal scars. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations and can commit to maintaining their youthful skin with proper sun protection for the best results. 

Is There Any Downtime With Laser Skin Resurfacing?

After treatment, your skin might look red and feel sensitive or sore. You can expect four to seven days of recovery before returning to work or other activities. Depending on the depth of treatment, your skin may peel for several days as the old treated skin is shed.
