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.

Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing

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 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.
