What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with a laser at Prestige Med Spa and Wellness Center is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses a mixture of ablation and heat to exfoliate damaged skin one layer at a time using the revolutionary FemiLift® Pixel CO2. The procedure is great for reducing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing skin blemishes, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered an ideal facial treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the skin type's needs, the treatment can be customized for best results. There is some recovery time associated with most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any questions or concerns may be reviewed with Dr. Awa Igbinadolor during the assessment and consultation.
What is Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique?
Before you have a more intense or deeper laser resurfacing session, you may be given a retinoid cream for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser appointment. The retinoid helps prep the skin for better results. Medication may be suggested prior to the treatment to help lessen any sensation so you can relax throughout your appointment. If your skin only needs mild correction, a topical anesthetic will be applied to numb treated areas of the face. For the full complexion or deeper laser procedures, some kind of sedation may be required. During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the FemiLift laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting the specific areas for improvement. You may feel the heat of the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy works to remove dead and damaged skin cells while also prompting natural collagen production.
