What is Laser Skin Resurfacing
Austin, TX, board-certified dermatologists at Snyder Dermatology, offer laser skin resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin with a cutting-edge technology, the ICON Palomar Lux1540™ Fractional Laser, one of the most advanced, effective lasers on the market. Intended to revolutionize the way we resurface the skin; this Fractional Laser delivers a targeted light beam to the skin's surface to deeply penetrate the layers of your skin without damaging your skin. It does, however, cause your body to initiate a healing response to form new tissue and healthy skin cells.
Even after just one treatment of laser skin resurfacing, the treatment will effectively expel the debris and dead skin cells off the area treated, and jump start collagen production in the skin that will make it firm and supple. For healthier, younger-looking skin, laser skin resurfacing can help you undo some of the damage of overexposed skin, acne, and other skin conditions that cause roughness or scarring. It will also help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. If you would like to learn more about laser skin resurfacing, please call and set up an appointment today.
Fractional Laser Technology
The Palomar Lux1540 Fractional Laser will go deep within the layers of your skin (up to 1 mm) to treat the damaged areas of your skin without causing a break in the skin or scarring. This device delivers microbeams of light in short pulses, making it more comfortable for the person being treated and with no need for topical anesthesia.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
"I have been treated by both Dr. Renee Snyder and Dr. Ned Snyder. I would give them both 5 stars, they are truly excellent at their craft and I am more than thrilled at my results. Dr. Renee Snyder is spot on with her treatment technique. I have had bad melasma on my face after having kids. She is honest and up front about my treatment options setting my expectations appropriately. In addition, she is does not try to sell you everything under the sun for skin care. She tells you what you need to use that truly works. She is truly and artist with botox and filler. I as well as several of my friends go to her and they do not look frozen from Botox. It is amazing what a natural, refreshed look she can give you with Botox and filler. I have not found anyone who does botox and filler better than her. I also have had two laser treatments done and both have been well worth the money. Rachel who runs the laser is exceptional at her job. Lastly, I had several benign bumps under and over my eyes. I have been to 4 dermatologists for them and all told me there was nothing they could do. Dr. Renee Snyder knew exactly what to do and treated my spots and corrected them. I am thrilled as I was quite self conscience and now they are gone. If I had not gone to her I would have lived with these bumps thinking that nothing could be done as others have told me so.I had a breast augmentation in my twenties and needed another one after two kids. I am very picky when choosing a plastic surgeon and dermatologist. Dr. Ned Snyder specializes in breast augmentation and I can tell by the results of my breast aug.. I was absolutely THRILLED with Dr. Ned Snyder and my breast augmentation. Dr. Ned listened to my needs and did exactly what I wanted with my breast aug. My breasts are natural looking and were very conservatively done, exactly what I had asked him to do. In addition, he performed liposuction on my stomach and thighs. I am only a week out and I am so happy with the results. The incisions are small and follow up has been excellent. I am honestly thrilled with my results and with Dr. Ned Snyder bedside manner and surgical skill. My liposuction looks wonderful and his high skill level is apparent. I use these sites often to learn more about surgeons and I can honestly say that Dr. Ned Snyder is an excellent surgeon and truly has performed incredible work on me. If you are having plastic surgery, he is a must see.As you can see, I felt compelled to write about these two doctors as they both treated me with excellent care and are highly knowledgeable in their craft. 5 stars for sure!!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 13, 2011
During the Treatment
You will be seated comfortably in a chair in one of our treatment rooms, and your skin will be cleansed. We will aim the laser at the area of treatment, and pass it over the skin. You may feel a slight sensation; however, the Palomar Lux1540 has a built-in cooling system to deliver relief from the heat of this non-ablative laser. It will destroy damaged skin cells layer-by-layer, and stimulate new collagen growth. It may take several sessions to see the best results, but most patients see improvements even after the first treatment.
What to Expect
You can expect some downtime after a laser skin resurfacing treatment because the skin will need time to heal. We recommend not exposing the skin to the sun, and wearing sun screen to protect your sensitive skin. The natural response of your skin is to crust and flake off, so please refrain from picking or pulling off the skin. You could damage or scar your facial skin. This process may take up to 1 – 2 weeks. Keep your skin clean and protected from irritants.
