What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that generates laser energy to remove the uppermost layers of the skin with optimal precision. The uppermost layers of the skin bear most signs of aging and sun damage, such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, and brown spots. Laser skin resurfacing removes the damaged skin tissues and paves the way for tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin. Cohen Medical Aesthetics offers personalized skin resurfacing with Secret Pro and Laser Genesis.

Laser skin resurfacing corrects the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Other facial scars
  • Age spots
  • Sunspots
  • Textural irregularities
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Skin dullness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Congested pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Other skin concerns

Skin resurfacing with Secret Pro and Laser Genesis

Laser skin resurfacing can be performed using numerous technologies, such as fractional laser and non-ablative laser. We offer laser skin resurfacing treatments with Secret Pro and Laser Genesis, which provide dramatic results using different technologies.

Secret Pro

Secret Pro by Cutera is a collection of devices that use fractional laser energy or radiofrequency energy to revitalize your complexion. The fractional handpiece generates laser energy to remove the uppermost layers of your damaged skin cells, thus paving the way for smooth, soft, and youthful skin. The radiofrequency device delivers radiofrequency waves into the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and reverse the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a cutting-edge non-ablative laser device that offers dramatic results with minimal side effects. Laser Genesis is a non-ablative device, so it doesn’t remove the uppermost layers of skin or cause any skin damage. Instead, it uses a special laser (Nd: YAG 1064nm) that penetrates the deep dermis to stimulate collagen, the structural protein that makes your skin look firm. Over time, your skin looks smooth, firm, and wrinkle-free.

Benefits of laser skin resurfacing:

  • Non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment
  • Comfortable and painless treatment
  • Stimulates cellular regeneration
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Personalized according to your skin conditions
  • Concludes within 60 minutes
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Resume your daily activities and work immediately

Laser skin resurfacing: side effects and recovery

Laser skin resurfacing causes minimal post-treatment side effects, though fractionated laser treatments may cause more discomfort. Your skin will look flushed and sunburned for a few hours, and you may experience mild redness, swelling, and tenderness. You can resume your daily activities, but avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a few days. You must also wear strong sunscreen and apply moisturizers to your skin.

Laser skin resurfacing: onset and longevity of results

The results of laser skin resurfacing will gradually appear over several weeks and sessions. Most patients need 3 to 6 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results, so the final results may appear after 6 months. The results appear gradually because they’re based on your skin’s natural healing processes. The results are long-lasting, but you need regular or annual maintenance treatments.
