What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure wherein short, concentrated beams of light energy are delivered to targeted areas of your skin. The light energy destroys unwanted pigments and broken capillaries and encourages collagen production. Over time, this makes your skin appear smooth, firm, and blemish-free. The treatment encourages natural healing, addressing the root cause of your skin concerns rather than just the symptoms.

What Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing Do We Offer?

RF Skin Resurfacing

Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing is best for fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scars, and stretch marks because it encourages collagen production. Collagen is the scaffolding that holds your skin upright, making it appear smooth, voluminous, and taut. As you grow older, your skin’s collagen reserves are depleted, leading to skin laxity and wrinkles.

Radiofrequency skin resurfacing involves delivering radiofrequency waves deep within the skin tissues. This encourages skin contracture, and your body produces new collagen fibers. Over time, your body’s collagen reserves are replenished, reversing the effects of age on your skin. This makes your skin appear smoother and fuller.

IPL Skin Resurfacing

IPL skin resurfacing is best for pigmentation problems, vascular lesions, rosacea, spider veins, and textural irregularities. During this treatment, targeted wavelengths of light energy are directed into the freckles, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and other blemishes. The light energy destroys the unwanted pigments, making your skin appear even-textured, even-toned, and smooth.

IPL skin resurfacing is also suitable for vascular therapy. The IPL energy is absorbed by the red color in the blood flowing in the damaged veins and broken capillaries. Once it’s absorbed, the light energy converts to thermal energy and shrinks the vein’s walls. Over time, the damaged veins get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin’s surface.

Laser Skin Resurfacing with E-Light

JOLI Medispa performs laser skin resurfacing in Covington and Mandeville with a cutting-edge laser device known as E-Light. This laser device is incredibly effective at laser skin resurfacing because it combines the twin benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy and intense pulsed light (IPL) energy while ensuring a painless and comfortable experience.

The Treatment & Recovery Process

The cosmetic provider examines your targeted treatment areas, discusses your concerns, and curates the ideal treatment plan. This involves adjusting the wavelength according to your specific skin concerns — different wavelengths target different problems. After preparing the treatment plan, your skin is cleansed, an anesthetic gel is applied, and you’re asked to wear protective goggles.

The E-Light device delivers bursts of intense pulsed light energy into the targeted area. This preheats the skin, paving the way for thermal energy to seep into the underlying dermal layers. The laser device is moved over all the targeted areas — the sensation is similar to a rubber band snapped on your skin. The procedure concludes within 30 minutes.

  • Side Effects: You may experience redness, swelling, discomfort, and tenderness for a few days. Your skin may also start flaking/ peeling off, revealing smoother, even-textured skin underneath.
  • Downtime: There’s no downtime — you can resume your daily activities immediately. However, you have to avoid direct sunlight, saunas, and strenuous workouts for a few days.
  • Onset of Results: You’ll start noticing results a week after the treatment with continued improvements for several weeks or months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

The answer depends upon a variety of factors, such as the size of the treatment area. To determine the final cost for your laser skin resurfacing procedure, schedule a consultation with your JOLI Med Spa provider.

Can laser skin resurfacing be used for stretch mark removal?

You can significantly improve the appearance of stretch marks by undergoing a laser skin resurfacing treatment. This will remove the outer layer or skin to stimulate the production of new skin tissue that displays less prominent stretch marks.

Can laser skin resurfacing be used as a skin tone treatment?

Laser skin resurfacing can help you if you have an uneven skin tone. It also helps improve wrinkles, acne scars, crow’s feet and age spots.

What is the laser skin resurfacing treatment like?

Your provider will begin by using a topical numbing agent to numb the target area. They will then select the appropriate laser setting for your individual skin type and treatment goals.

You may notice some minor skin redness during your laser skin resurfacing treatment, which can be expected to fade in the hours and days ahead

How many laser resurfacing treatments are needed?

The answer depends upon your individual case. Some patients require more than one laser skin resurfacing treatment to obtain their desired results. Your provider can give you an idea of how many treatments you will need to reach your aesthetic goals.

How long does it take to heal from laser resurfacing?

Healing time varies from patient to patient, but most people find that they recover anywhere from five days to 3 weeks after their laser skin resurfacing treatment.

The time that it takes to heal from a laser resurfacing treatment depends upon factors like:

  • Size of treatment area
  • Treatment depth
  • Type of laser used
  • Patient’s post-procedure routine
