Skin Resurfacing in Littleton, CO

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing at Skintastic Aesthetics is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged surface skin cells layer by layer. The treatment is used for reducing facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Sometimes called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is an effective procedure for people who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Our expert team utilizes the Opus Plasma®, a plasma fibroblast skin rejuvenation platform to clear away dead and damaged skin one layer at a time. This service is performed for correcting facial creases and lines and for minimizing irregularities, such as acne scars, sun damage, and other problems. Besides addressing facial features, Opus Plasma can also treat the eye area, essentially conducting a nonsurgical blepharoplasty or eye lift. With versatile handpieces and precision, this plasma skin resurfacing system uses fractionated plasma energy to rejuvenate the lips, neck, chest, abdomen, arms, legs, and knees. The platform can also help minimize stretch marks. There is little recovery time needed for most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Any questions or concerns can be reviewed with Littleton, CO nurse practitioner Danielle Sanders during your consultation.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

If you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper laser resurfacing session, you may be given a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser treatment. This helps prep the skin for maximum results. Medication may be given prior to the procedure to help lessen any discomfort for greater relaxation throughout your session. If your skin needs mild correction, a local anesthetic may be applied to numb certain areas of the face. For the full face or more intense laser procedures, some form of sedation may be used. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over the skin, directly targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. You may feel warmth from the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser works to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also prompting natural collagen production.

I had the Vivace microneedling treatment and the following week I had the DiamondGlow hydrofacial. My skin felt so good after each service, and best of all there was no down time! Danielle and the staff were so knowledgeable and friendly. I bought a Skinmedica product to use at home to get the greatest results from the treatments. I've already booked my next appointment!

Danielle is great! My boyfriend is doing a series of four microneedling sessions with her and can already see improvement in his acne scars after just one session! Looking forward to using her for other services😊

LOVE my results. I went in for a micro-needling RF treatment for my acne scars and then a week later we did a PDO thread lift for my cheeks and eyes and I’m just impressed with Danielle and her team. She is so knowledgeable and friendly. The PDO thread couldn’t have went any better

I visited Skintastic 3 times for different services before writing a review. The first visit I had a consult, hydrafacial, and IV therapy (with B-12). The 2nd time I had PDO threads with PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin). The last visit I had microneedling and lip filler. I really love how Danielle answers each of my questions. She's so knowledgeable! She's also skilled and meticulous. And when it comes to my face, that means everything. Plus, their prices are competitive, worth every penny. I plan to buy a Club in January and my next appointment is already in my calendar. I highly recommend Skintastic.

Who is a Candidate for Skin Resurfacing?

Anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin can be a candidate for laser skin resurfacing. This includes individuals who have concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, sun damage, or enlarged pores. However, it is important to note that certain medical conditions or medications may make someone ineligible for this procedure. It is best to consult with our team at Skintastic Aesthetics to determine if laser skin resurfacing is the right treatment moving forward. We take the time to evaluate your unique skin concerns and create a personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect From Skin Resurfacing

For lighter resurfacing treatments, an ointment is applied to soothe the skin before you go home to recover. Initially, the treated area may appear red and experience some swelling and irritation, but these effects typically subside within a few days. The skin peeling phase usually spans 3 – 5 days. For deeper laser treatments, the recovery time is longer. You might need to wear protective dressings over the treated areas, and the sensations of burning, irritation, and swelling will be more pronounced. Pain medication can be prescribed to manage these symptoms. Recovery from deeper laser resurfacing can take up to 2 to 3 weeks. Minimizing sun exposure during this period is crucial and using sun protection regularly. The treated skin will flake, crust, and peel as it heals, so avoid picking at it to prevent scarring and ensure proper healing. Once the peeling is complete, you'll notice softer, clearer, and rejuvenated skin that looks more youthful.

What causes skin discoloration and scarring?

There are many reasons why someone would experience skin discoloration and scarring, including genetics, acne, sun exposure, and aging. Laser skin resurfacing targets the damaged cells to help reduce these issues. Skintastic Aesthetics knows that each patient has unique skin concerns, which is why we personalize each treatment.

How does laser skin resurfacing compare to over-the-counter products?

Over-the-counter products can help improve the appearance of your skin, but they often only address surface-level issues. Laser skin resurfacing targets the deeper layers to provide more dramatic and long-lasting results. Danielle Sanders can recommend the best treatment plan for your individual needs.

How long do results last after laser skin resurfacing?

Results can last for years with proper skincare and sun protection. However, aging is a continuous process, so maintenance appointments may be recommended to keep your skin looking and feeling great. Our experienced team in Littleton, CO, can also provide tips on how to prolong your outcomes for as long as possible.

A Softer, Clearer Complexion

Laser skin resurfacing procedures provide amazing results if you want a more youthful complexion, to improve acne-prone skin, or to diminish the appearance of stretch marks. If you are thinking about a skin rejuvenation treatment and want to hear more information about the benefits provided by Opus Plasma, as well as other nonsurgical options at our Littleton, CO practice, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule your consultation with Danielle.
