Skin resurfacing lasers include:
- Pulsed Dye Laser – flashes a bright yellow light through the skin to eliminate superficial facial spider veins and to thicken the fibrous or elastic layer of skin.
Laser Resurfacing – vaporizes sun damaged and finely wrinkled skin. This laser shrinks and thickens aged skin.
- Erbium Laser – a new type of resurfacing laser that enables our doctors to smooth fine lines and scars without causing heat damage to deeper layers of the skin. The use of the erbium laser reduces the prolonged redness often seen with resurfacing. Our doctors also uses the erbium laser to resurface the neck, preventing a line of demarcation between a newly resurfaced face and a sun-damaged neck.
How do I know if I’m a candidate for this treatment?

Does resurfacing help with acne scars?
An acne-scarred face usually responds well to laser facial resurfacing. We have many pleased patients and many wonderful results to show you.
Will I experience much pain during or after the procedure?
Many patients worry about whether they will be comfortable. Our goal is to maximize your comfort. Most patients opt for intravenous sedation during the procedure and experience no discomfort. A qualified anesthesiologist administers this type of anesthesia in the safety and comfort of our ambulatory surgical center. All patients receive prescriptions for pain medication postoperatively but many patients find this unnecessary.
Will I miss much work?
You do go through a healing period and need about a week off from work. Most people experience swelling for 1-3 days. The skin generally forms a new layer in 5-7 days. This skin may have a pink hue (like a mild sunburn) for two weeks to two months. Makeup may be used after one week.
