Smooth Facial Wrinkles with Skin Resurfacing

Restore Your Skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing & Chemical Peels

Youthful attractive skin is smooth, unblemished, consistent in color and texture, and applied snugly over underlying anatomy with contours that reflect deeper musculo-skeletal structures.  Healthy skin moves with the body and rebounds after application of pressure because of its elasticity.  Aging, environmentally damaged skin is more loosely applied to underlying anatomy and is variably pigmented.  Lines of flexion and movement worn into the skin over the years deepen with contraction of muscles beneath the skin (dynamic creases), and remain even at rest (static creases).

Before Treatment and After Healing From Laser Treatment of Cheek Skin

Laser Skin Resurfacing and Chemical Peels inflict precisely controlled injury to the skin surface.

Energy applied to the skin vaporizes (laser) or coagulates (chemical peel) the most superficial layers of skin.  Damaged surface elements then slough, and pigment within these surface layers disappears.  Deeper dermal connective tissue is heated, but recovers from the reversible treatment injury.  Healing from the laser or chemical peel controlled injury occurs during weeks to months after treatment, and consists of many complex phenomena.  Of most importance to restoration of youthful appearing smoother skin is new collagen production and perhaps activation of elastin, as well as restoration of epidermal thickness.  The net effect is smoother, tighter skin with evening of pigmentation.

At Feel Beautiful Plastic Surgery, Dr. Steve Laverson uses his Luxar carbon dioxide laser with fiberoptic delivery system and rotating handpiece to “resurface” aging, sun-damaged, finely wrinkled, loose, sagging, or acne-scarred facial skin.

Anesthesia is required. The laser beam penetrates to a precisely controlled depth of skin surface. Carbon dioxide wavelength vaporizes only the most superficial layer of damaged skin. In reality, it is NOT the laser that rejuvenates skin, the laser only creates a calculated, reversible injury.

Natural wound healing processes resurface the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance during weeks to months after treatment. The first two weeks are the most demanding for patients. Skin care during the period of healing is important to achieve the best result.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Laser skin renewal treatment works by inflicting very precisely controlled injury to the surface of the skin. Energy is applied to the skin, which then vaporises the most superficial layers of the skin. The damaged surface of the skin is essentially removed and pigment within these layers fades. The deeper dermal connective tissue is also heated, but is able to recover from the treatment. The result is skin that appears smoother and tighter, with less pigmentation and scarring.

At Feel Beautiful Plastic Surgery, we use a Luxar carbon dioxide laser, which has a fibre optic delivery system and rotating hand piece. The system works by resurfacing skin that is ageing, sun damaged, finely wrinkled, loose, sagging, or scarred by acne.

The natural wound healing process following laser skin renewal treatment takes up to four months. The first two weeks, however, are the most demanding for most patients. It’s very important to stick to a proper skin care regime during the period of healing, as this will help to achieve the best possible results.
