Improve Your Skin, Improve Your Look with Advanced Laser Technology

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive or minimally-invasive rejuvenation technique which safely and effectively harnesses the power of light to treat common and unsightly skin conditions one layer of skin at a time.  Laser treatments involve the use of controlled pulses of high energy light directed into the different layers of skin.  As the light enters the skin, it is absorbed as heat energy, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and sparking collagen production for skin.

At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, with offices conveniently located in Richmond and Vienna, VA, we offer a variety of advanced laser workstations, relying only on state-of-the-art technologies that have long-standing track records of both safety and results.  Under the direction of Board Certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, we will work closely with you to develop a customized laser-based treatment plan that will combat aging skin from deep within your skin cells. *

  • At Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer only the most advanced, state-of-the-art light-based rejuvenation systems, which vary in terms of the depth at which the rejuvenating energy is delivered, the strength of the required healing energy, and extent of potential discomfort and required downtime.  

    The strongest laser systems—CO2-based, ablative (damaging) lasers—deliver powerful healing energy deep into the tissues of the skin and are perfect for significant damage and extensive rejuvenation. Individual results may vary, however, many patients achieve results with just one treatment. The treatment requires use of a sedative and can require up to a week of downtime.*

    Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.

    The gentler, non-ablative (non-damaging) systems such as Clear + Brilliant® are ideal for minor to moderate skin damage.  These treatments are more comfortable and can be completed without the use of anesthetics, and they do not require any downtime.  However, results usually require a series of treatments usually spaced about a month apart.*  

    At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your unique skin tone, condition, and texture and discuss with you your unique aesthetic goals, in order to plan and modify a precisely-tailored laser treatment or series of treatments based on your individual goals and needs.*
