Achieve Flawless Complexion With Laser Skin Resurfacing Columbia SC

Looking old is a cumulative process. With enough wrinkles, skin blemishes, fine veins, and skin damage, the beautiful skin of your youth becomes the tired skin you see in the mirror. However, laser skin resurfacing is a powerful and effective treatment method that can turn back the clock!

Are you ready to get a flawless and radiant complexion? When you get your skin care treatments at our dynamic, high-energy medical spa you’ll leave looking and feeling like a Rockstar!

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate your skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, blemishes and other imperfections. Utilizing advanced laser technology, this procedure can selectively target particular pigments found in blemishes or veins, remove the outer layer of the dermis and promote new skin cell growth, or stimulate deeper layers of skin to encourage collagen production.

The process begins with a consultation with your esthetician where your skin concerns and goals are discussed. During the treatment, a specialized laser is used to carefully target your desired treatment areas, leaving the surrounding areas untouched.

A key benefit of laser skin resurfacing is its versatility. It can effectively address a variety of skin issues, including fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, and uneven skin tone. Whether you’re looking to refresh your overall complexion or tackle specific problem areas, this treatment offers customizable options to meet your unique needs.

Recovery from laser skin resurfacing is quick, with most treatments requiring little to no downtime. As the skin heals, you’ll notice a smoother, more radiant complexion emerging.

Using a variety of different laser technologies, laser skin resurfacing is able to provide a wide range of benefits ranging from evening out skin color to safely zapping away warts or wrinkles.

How painful is laser resurfacing?

Different laser treatments have different levels of discomfort associated with them. Most of our treatments are extremely easy to handle, and feel like a cool or warm sensation. A few of our treatments produce more of a ‘snapping’ sensation that can be uncomfortable. Our esthetician will guide you through your choices and help you choose the treatment which will get you your desired results with the least amount of discomfort.

We have cooling gels which provide an anesthetic effect for the more intense treatments.

How many sessions does laser resurfacing take?

In most cases, the best results will come from multiple treatments. During your consultation your esthetician will be able to give you a better idea of what to expect from your treatment plan.

Is there downtime associated with laser skin resurfacing?

This depends on the type of laser used during your treatment. Some of our lasers are incredibly gentle and require little or no downtime afterwards. However, we do have some more powerful treatment options that might require a few days of downtime.
Generally, you will want to avoid applying makeup shortly after your treatment and limit your sun exposure. After a few days you’ll be able to go into the sun as long as you are wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Your esthetician will be able to give you a more comprehensive explanation of your treatment and aftercare during your consultation.

What is the Difference Between Ablative and Non-Ablative Lasers?

Ablative and non-ablative lasers are two main types of laser treatments used for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, each with distinct characteristics and benefits. Ablative lasers are highly effective for resurfacing the skin by removing the outer layers of damaged skin. This process stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin. Ablative lasers, such as CO2 and Erbium lasers, are typically used to treat deeper wrinkles, scars, and skin irregularities. While they offer dramatic results, they also require a longer recovery period due to the intensity of the treatment.
In contrast, non-ablative lasers work beneath the surface of the skin without removing the outer layers. They stimulate collagen growth and tighten the underlying skin, making them ideal for treating fine lines, mild wrinkles, and pigmentation issues with minimal downtime. Non-ablative lasers, such as Nd:YAG, Alexandrite, and certain fractional lasers, generally result in less discomfort and quicker recovery times compared to ablative lasers. While non-ablative treatments may require multiple sessions for optimal results, they offer a gentler approach to skin rejuvenation with fewer side effects.
