Laser Skin Resurfacing Improve Your Look with Laser Technology

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive or minimally-invasive rejuvenation technique that safely and effectively harnesses the power of light to treat common 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 your 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 your skin, so you can enjoy a rejuvenated look with minimal downtime. Our offices are located in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Washington DC—to learn more about how laser skin resurfacing can help you, reach out and set up your consultation today.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

The strongest laser systems—CO2-based, ablative lasers—deliver powerful healing energy deep into the tissues of your skin and are perfect for those who feel they may have significant damage and are interested in a more extensive level of rejuvenation. 

While individual results may vary, most of our patients are able to achieve impressive results with just one treatment. The treatment requires the use of a sedative and can require up to one week of downtime.

Before your CO2 laser resurfacing procedure, you’ll meet with a member of our team who will help you understand exactly what you can expect from the treatment experience, and what your recovery experience will be like, as well.

Treating Mild to Moderate Skin Issues with Laser Skin Resurfacing

Gentler, non-ablative 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. Optimal 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 needs.
