As we get older, our collagen begins to degrade, which makes us lose the “scaffolding” that young and healthy skin relies upon for its vibrant and full appearance.. Laser skin resurfacing will give you a smoother, more youthful appearance by selectively removing dull, outer layers of skin. This creates a fresh surface and builds collagen so the skin looks younger, healthier, and like a naturally restored version of you.

How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

Laser skin resurfacing in McKinney, TX works by directing short, concentrated beams of light at the problem area of the skin, removing the damaged skin layer by layer. This triggers the body to build new collagen, which results in radiant, healthy skin. 

Our laser skin resurfacing treatments improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines 
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Age spots
  • Pitted acne scars
  • Enlarged oil glands
  • Warts

If you’re having any of these skin issues, a laser skin resurfacing treatment from BeauxMD can help.

What is the Treatment Like?

When you arrive at BeauxMD for your laser skin resurfacing treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to minimize any discomfort. If your skin is being treated for a larger area, and we have opted for a deeper resurfacing treatment, we may provide you with a sedative or painkillers.
Your skin will then be cleansed, and treatment will begin. The laser will pass over the skin and deliver the light energy to a specific depth according to the settings determined by your highly trained health care professional. As the laser’s high energy beams penetrate the skin, the targeted areas are vaporized, resulting in a healing cascade that will take place over the coming days. This healing process is responsible for the building of collagen and the subsequent results of a youthful and vibrant skin surface.

Downtime and Aftercare

Different lasers require different amounts of downtime. Some laser resurfacing requires weeks of downtime, and others only a few days. For example, downtime from ablative laser treatment can take up to three weeks. The larger the treatment area and the deeper the laser, the longer the recovery time. During your consultation, we will determine which laser is right for your specific needs.

Generally, patients experience redness, swelling, and dryness after their laser skin resurfacing treatment. Your skin may scab over or peel. Using a good moisturizer may help during the healing process, but check with Dr. Barstad or one of our nurses before using any type of topical treatment on your healing skin.

Depending on the treated area and the type of laser, you may need to adjust your daily skin care routine and use new dressings to ensure your skin stays clean. We will go over your home care instructions with you to make sure you know what you’re supposed to do.

Keep in mind that your skin may be sun sensitive for up to one year following each laser skin resurfacing procedure. It’s important to always wear a good sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 when outside, even if it’s cloudy.

As mentioned above, different lasers achieve different results. During your consultation, we will go over your issues, concerns, and goals to best determine which type of laser will work for you.
