Laser Skin Resurfacing
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we offer the most technologically advanced laser systems, including the UltraPulse® CO2 laser with ActiveFX, DeepFX, TotalFX. and Ulteraphy. The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. The primary treatment applications of laser skin resurfacing include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Pucker marks (smoker’s lines) and frown lines
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls
During laser skin resurfacing, thousands of tiny laser pulses are delivered in a pattern over the skin. Each pulse of the laser heats a column of tissue and creates a zone of heating in the deep layers of the skin, resulting in the removal of pigment discolorations at the surface and immediate shrinkage of collagen. The CO2 laser also heats the deep layers of skin tissue, stimulating further collagen remodeling. Patients can select from a range of treatments depending on the needs of their skin and their lifestyle.
Laser skin resurfacing produces long-lasting results that can be maintained for many years with proper sun protection. Smoother, younger-looking skin is visible immediately after treatment, whereas new collagen builds gradually and becomes more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better three to five months after the procedure.
Many people can’t tolerate the downtime or may otherwise not be good candidates for laser skin resurfacing. In these cases, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), or high-intensity pulsed light therapy, may be an option. In a nutshell, IPL uses broad-spectrum light that filters out unwanted wavelengths as a means of treating a host of skin conditions and abnormalities. IPL can diminish or remove: age spots, liver spots, fine line and wrinkles, freckles, minor sun damage, port wine stains, tattoos, varicose veins, and more.
When you work with one of our Med Spa professionals under the supervision of Dr. Sozer, they will determine if Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is your best choice when it comes to optimum skin care. Learn more here.
