Frequently Asked Questions

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser skin resurfacing reverses the effects of aging by destroying damaged, aging skin. Depending on the treatment technique, the laser may remove the surface skin from the treated area, or it may remove columns of damaged skin (such as acne scars). The body naturally replaces the old, damaged skin with a fresh, healthy layer of skin tissue. Treatment can be performed to various depths to address damage ranging from fine lines to deep creases.

What signs of aging can laser skin resurfacing correct?

Laser skin resurfacing can correct signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, other pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and textural irregularities. It can also correct acne scars.

Can laser skin resurfacing be performed on all skin types?

With the Sciton JOULE™ platform, laser skin resurfacing can be safely performed on all skin types. Dr. Poris will determine the safest and best technique for your needs.

What results can I expect?

Laser skin resurfacing can yield dramatic results. This treatment has been proven to significantly improve and even eliminate many pigmented lesions, wrinkles, vascular lesions, and acne scars. You can expect your skin to appear noticeably smoother, younger, and healthier.

How long will the results last?

Results from laser skin resurfacing can be long-lasting. The best way to maintain your results is to adopt good skin care practices and wear daily sun protection. Regular laser resurfacing treatments every few years can also help you maintain your results long-term.
