Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can enhance the appearance of your skin using specialized laser technology. Skin resurfacing is designed to address the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, as well as uneven pigmentation and skin texture irregularities. This laser skin care procedure resurfaces the skin by clearing away existing skin cells and encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing uses laser therapy to improve skin texture and tone while reducing wrinkles and acne scarring. Laser skin treatment directs laser energy to the surface of your skin with precision. PicoSure® laser technology gently removes skin cells to make way for new skin cells to grow. PicoSure® technology can treat damaged skin cells at a rate of 1 trillion bursts per second without causing harm to your surrounding tissues. In addition to encouraging the growth of healthy skin, your laser skin rejuvenation procedure can also stimulate the production of new collagen fibers below the skin, which can add natural firmness and structure to your skin.
