This is achieved by stimulating healthy skin cells and collagen, providing you with a smoother, more youthful appearance. Don’t hesitate to contact M Spa today to schedule a consultation for laser skin resurfacing treatment at our practice.
Laser skin resurfacing is a comprehensive treatment designed to improve the appearance of your complexion through laser therapy, a powerful yet non-surgical means of skin rejuvenation. This technique is designed to penetrate the different layers of the skin with targeted laser energy in order to foster the production of new, healthy skin cells. Laser skin resurfacing can be highly effective at not only enhancing the tone and texture of your skin, but also treating wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, loose skin, acne scars, and many other common skin concerns.
At M Spa, our aesthetic professionals use fractional laser technology, meaning the laser energy emitted is broken up into tiny beams that treat only a fraction of the skin in the targeted area. This can reduce downtime, as well as any potential discomfort caused by laser skin resurfacing. What’s more, the ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ lasers utilized by Dr. McCormack can penetrate the deeper skin layers to more extensively address damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production.
The effects of natural aging and exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can take a significant toll on your skin. The advent of laser technology to provide skin rejuvenation has revolutionized the world of cosmetic enhancement, and the ActiveFX™ laser system is one of the latest laser skin resurfacing treatments that work to improve the tone, texture, and tightness of your skin. In a single treatment, the ActiveFX™ is designed to deliver results equivalent to what is often achieved in four or five sessions by other systems. Our certified nurses will gently move the laser over the areas of skin targeted for treatment, while the light energy gently penetrates under the skin to stimulate collagen and regenerate healthy skin layers.
The ActiveFX™ fractional skin resurfacing treatment can rejuvenate skin affected by conditions such as:
Typical recovery times after ActiveFX™ laser treatment last about four to seven days. With proper care, results from the ActiveFX™ laser skin resurfacing procedure can last for years, and periodic touch-up treatments can maintain results and keep the skin healthy. ActiveFX™ has been featured in a number of recent news stories, and is considered by many doctors to be one of the most effective new laser treatments available.
After laser skin resurfacing, patients can expect some degree of redness, peeling, and mild discomfort as the skin heals and healthier skin layers are brought to the surface. Swelling is common and can be controlled with ice packs or oral pain medication. Most men and women compare the sensation experienced after treatment to the feeling of having a sunburn. As the skin begins to peel and side effects start to diminish, the healing process can be accelerated by cleaning and moisturizing the treated area according to instructions.
