Laser facials use pulsating beams of light to eliminate dead and damaged skin layers. The treatment is used for addressing facial lines and wrinkles and for minimizing skin flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Also known as a laser peel, a laser facial is an ideal procedure for patients desiring softer, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin. There is some downtime required with most laser facials.
We offer three types of laser facial treatments that are chosen based on your skin’s needs. Some are performed for milder cases of skin damage while others are more aggressive:
Ablative Laser Treatments
Ablative lasers treat thin layers of skin, like a deep chemical peel or dermabrasion, with a precision that allows the technician to reduce skin damage. Ablative lasers are best for firming the skin and treating wrinkles and acne scars.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
Non-ablative lasers do not remove any skin — the light simply makes micro-damage to the skin to encourage natural healing. Non-ablative facials are great for addressing fine lines and wrinkles on patients who are able to wait 2 – 3 months for strong results.
Fractional Laser Treatments
Fractional lasers are both ablative and non-ablative that create small holes in the deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s self-healing process creates firmer, healthier skin. Fractional lasers may also be performed to help fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, and pigmentation issues.
During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting the needed surfaces for rejuvenation. You will feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production.
