LASER RESURFACING LEARN MORE SEATTLE BELLEVUE

Learn more about Laser Resurfacing in the information below. Laser resurfacing is a technique that involves using a laser to take away the top layers of your skin to reduce pigmentation issues, sun spots, fine wrinkles, superficial lesions and to, ultimately get smoother, less wrinkly & spotty skin. Lasers are used to progressively remove skin to a point that is safe enough and deep enough to allow skin cells located in the skin appendages to "resurface" your skin. The end result is skin that is smoother with less skin pigmentation issues like sun spots, melasma. It also can result in the improvement in the texture of your skin and a lighter, more even skin tone. Below are some links to learn more about laser resurfacing that is found after some before and afters:

We will discuss laser resurfacing and hopefully answer most of your questions. Laser resurfacing is done with many types of lasers. Ablative lasers remove the top layers of your skin. Erbium and co2 are the most common ablative lasers. Co2 lasers can get a deeper peel and do this safely. Erbium lasers resurface less deep and most consider this a second choice to cO2 lasers.  Ablative lasers like chemical peels and other resurfacing approaches, take away the top layers of the skin and allow the skin cells from deeper within hair follicles to “resurface” the skin. In the picture below you can see a side view of your skin:

Take a look at the picture. There is a layer of the skin where you see the skin cells oriented along a wavy structure. These are the papillae. Deep laser resurfacing goes into the dermis and the deepest layer that resurfacing reaches should be around the junction where the papillae end. As you can see there are cells that are deeper than that in the hair follicles and the other skin organs. These cells “resurface” your skin. In that process after laser resurfacing, you get new skin that covers your flatter skin surface and you also develop an organized layer of collagen to make your skin more uniform, smoother with less wrinkles.

Below is a video explaining this in relation to co2 laser resurfacing and also the difference between active, deep, total, and max fx:

Preparing for Laser Resurfacing:

You first start by setting up a consultation. You can click here to check out our consultation page. After this you find the best date for your laser resurfacing. Much of this depends on your recovery. You can get the lightest laser treatment and be slightly red the next day or you can get the most intense and need at least 1 week to recover. You can choose your recovery. One thing to know is the deepest and more intense you choose, the more results. With more risks there is more potential for more results. 2 weeks before your procedure, you will have your pre procedure appointment. At this appointment, we will go over your consents and see how medically fit you are. You can follow this link to find your patient care package. After this you will need to clean your the lasered areas really well. We have a laser post procedure page to help you learn how to clean.

Laser Resurfacing Costs:

It depends on what you have done. You can laser small parts of your face or you can laser resurface your whole face. Concentrating just on your cheeks can range from 1500-2900. The whole face can range from 3500-4500. But just a small spot can be from 500-1500 depending on the situation. There are other things that we consider and we can discuss this with you. Our laser resurfacing is based on more than 16 years of working with lasers in many different situations.

Can Laser Resurfacing help with Scars:

We use lasers for many situations involving scars. It is central to our unique Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. We use it for all types of scars including depressed scars, elevated scars, ice pick scars, box car scars, rolling scars, self harm scars, white scars, dark scars, etc. You can see some scar revision before and afters to see some results with lasers on scar revision.
