What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser Skin resurfacing typically involves using a laser to rejuvenate the skin through gentle exfoliation of the damaged or aged skin cells. This process helps reveal a more youthful and radiant complexion by exposing the healthier skin cells that lie beneath, while the removal of damaged skin cells also stimulates the production of new collagen, helping to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

Laser skin resurfacing can be ablative:

  • CO2 laser
  • Erbium

Or laser resurfacing is Non - ablative:

  • Fractional non ablative
  • Fraxel laser

Laser Skin resurfacing can also be done with RF microneedling devices.

Don’t get caught up in all the terminology of laser skin resurfacing and instead focus on your concerns. It is good to be educated about what laser face treatment you may want done but cosmetic laser services are changing names and innovating at a rapid rate.

We want you to have the information but not be overwhelmed by the google rabbit hole. Here are some key things Knoxville Laser Skin Resurfacing should know about:

Is there a time of year that is ideal for Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

The fall is the ideal “laser season.” Fall is right after the most sun exposure and skin damage related to the sun. Yet fall and winter work best for laser skin resurfacing. The days are shorter, the sun less strong, and more time is spent indoors. Despite laser skin treatments being done during the right time of year, an effective sunscreen needs to be used to protect the skin from aging with sun exposure.

Do Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments hurt?

The experience of Laser Skin Resurfacing depends on treatment severity and the type of laser used. Some ablative lasers such as CO2 laser treatments or erbium laser treatments can be painful requiring sedation. Most non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatments have minimal discomfort. If pain is anticipated, then topical numbing agents will alleviate any discomfort.

Do Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments have much downtime?

The downtime with your Laser Skin Resurfacing varies depending on the type of laser treatment performed. CO2 laser or ablative laser treatments such as erbium lasers have deeper tissue treatment with ablation of the top layers of the skin—therefore have more prolonged downtime. These ablative laser treatments are more of a one deep treatment. Like a coarse sandpaper with furniture to sand a deeper dent. Fraxel or non ablative lasers do more sanding down over time. So, it is a more mild treatment that has little to no downtime and is performed more frequently. A more mild sandpaper to sand down a scratch in furniture.

Can Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments be done on darker skin tones?

It is true that some lasers can cause cell damage and discoloration in darker skin types or colors. But there are safe Skin Resurfacing Treatments in darker skin tones. The best way to ensure a safe and effective treatment is to consult with a provider with extensive knowledge and experience in laser skin resurfacing in darker skin types. Fortunately, our laser specialist at RevitalyzeMD has the most extensive experience treating darker skin types—schedule your laser consultation to find out what laser treatments are right for you.

Does it matter who performs your Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments?

It absolutely matters who performs your laser skin treatments. You want the most knowledgeable and experienced laser specialist—safety and results depend on it. Choose a laser specialist based on experience, training, qualifications, or supervising physician. Do not simply look for the best deal or newest laser platform.

Certain medical conditions and medications can affect your laser skin rejuvenation treatments.

  • Always being complete with your medical history, medications and supplements with your medical provider.
  • Cold sore history requires prophylaxis.
  • Certain acne medications such as Accutane can be contraindications.
  • Steroids can impede healing.
  • More bleeding with blood thinning medications.

The list goes on.

Different skin types and conditions are ideally treated by different skin lasers.

  • CO2 lasers are ablative lasers and so treat deeper skin conditions with prolonged downtime. We have no CO2 lasers at RevitalyzeMD.
  • Erbium lasers are ablative and so treat deeper skin conditions with longer downtimes. We have an erbium laser at RevitalyzemMD but it has a non-ablative mode to a deeper ablative mode. Many of our patients do not want downtime so more superficial treatments are done and more frequently to treat deeper skin conditions but over time. Fotona erbium advanced resurfacing is our most advanced Skin Resurfacing Treatment in Knoxville at RevitalyzeMD.
  • Fractional laser treatments are ablative or non-ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing. They break up the laser energy into many small beams to minimize downtime. These are popular laser treatments for a variety of skin conditions. LaseMD ultra is our fractional non ablative treatment and one of our most popular laser treatments. Fractional Erbium ablative with Fotona at RMD.
  • Intense pulsed light laser–IPL. This uses laser light that is directed at pigment. It can be used to treat pigmented issues or vascular and redness issues. It is a lightning and brightening laser treatment. It is also well proven to be anti-aging if done 2-3 times a year. Lumecca is the IPL treatment performed at RMD.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling skin resurfacing. Non ablative energy driven into the skin with needles. A very popular treatment for lots of skin disorders and non surgical lifting and firming of the face, neck, and chest. Morpheus8 is our RF microneedling treatment. Morpheus8 Body is our newest addition to treat larger areas of the body with deeper and faster treatments.

How many skin resurfacing treatments will I need?

With Laser Skin Resurfacing Knoxville patients should know that they are usually performed in a series. Most non ablative treatments are done in a series as that is the trade off for having no downtime. The good news is once the results are obtained, they are long-lasting.
