What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced skin rejuvenation technique that uses laser technology to exfoliate the skin. This treatment is highly customizable, so the strength of treatment can be adjusted based on your skin type and treatment needs. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to address wrinkles and lines, skin damage, scars and more. In fact, laser skin resurfacing acne scars treatment is one of the most popular uses of the technique. The combination of skin exfoliation and collagen production produces great results. When it comes to laser skin resurfacing vs chemical peel treatments, laser skin resurfacing is able to produce greater results, faster, and has the added benefit of stimulating collagen production. At The Peer Group, we use the Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 laser for laser skin resurfacing.

How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the laser skin resurfacing technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment.
What is the Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure Like?
The laser skin resurfacing treatment may involve the use of anesthetics, depending on the treatment area. During treatment, we use a handheld laser device to precisely exfoliate layers of skin in the desired treatment area. This process is generally well-tolerated thanks to the anesthetics we provide. The laser skin resurfacing treatment can take up to an hour, but the exact duration of treatment will vary based on the size of the treatment area and the desired results.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery Like?
The recovery from laser skin resurfacing will depend on the extent of treatment performed. You can generally expect redness, irritation and occasional peeling of the skin after laser skin resurfacing, much like the effects of a sunburn. During your recovery, you'll need to protect the skin from sunlight and keep the skin moisturized. Outside of these precautions, patients generally return to work and all other usual activities within a few days of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The results from laser skin resurfacing become visible in the weeks and months following treatment. Even after side effects resolve, the increase in collagen in the skin will contribute to continued improvements in skin laxity and volume. However, we often recommend multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. During your consultation, we will discuss how many treatments are necessary based on your cosmetic goals.
