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.  *** PRP or platelet rich plasma can be added to treatment upon request***

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.

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.
