Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing improves the skin's texture and the appearance of wrinkles by removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. Skin resurfacing also stimulates action in the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. All skin resurfacing treatments at Bergen Aesthetics are administered by a trained aesthetician who has experience with laser skin resurfacing.
Bergen Aesthetics offers two types of laser skin resurfacing: Laser-Cutera Pearl® and RF Fractora®. Each of these lasers offers different advantages for patients. Dr. Ohanian can help you decide which of these options is best for your needs.
Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Safe?
Laser skin resurfacing isn’t invasive and is unlikely to cause any serious side effects or risks. However, Dr. Ohanian will describe any side effects you can expect before scheduling the procedure. If you experience any worrisome side effects after laser skin resurfacing, contact Bergen Aesthetics as soon as possible.
What is Laser-Cutera Pearl?
The Pearl Laser Procedure safely and effectively renews the skin's surface to provide quick, noticeable results. This treatment minimizes wrinkles, uneven texture, and discoloration in only one or two appointments. Unlike fractional technologies, Pearl involves less overall recovery time, while still giving your skin a healthy pearl-like glow.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser-Cutera Pearl?
The 'Smooth-Skin' laser is an ideal treatment for all patients age 25 and up.
If you choose this treatment option, you’ll see results after only one treatment and just three to four days of social downtime. New collagen growth continues for up to six weeks post-treatment.
What is RF Fractora?
With RF Fractora, radio frequency energy is precisely delivered through an array of pins that produce localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treated area. This combination promotes collagen restructuring to rejuvenate the skin and improve its appearance.
What are the Benefits of RF Fractora?
Treatment with RF Fractora can improve most of the signs of aging, including:
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Visible blood vessels
- Uneven texture
RF Fractora provides results that would have previously required treatment with up to four separate technologies.
