Collagen plays a vital role in supporting our skin and keeping it firm and resilient. As collagen declines with age, skin laxity increases, and lines and wrinkles appear. You can dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles while improving skin tone and texture with laser skin resurfacing.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
We use a fractional CO2 laser at the Lanfranchi Center to give you maximum results with minimal downtime. The laser energy revitalizes the skin and triggers collagen production to improve firmness, texture, and tone. If your primary concerns have less to do with wrinkles and more to do with sun damage or enlarged pores, laser skin resurfacing can address these issues as well.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Laser skin resurfacing is a modified form of ablative therapy. It removes the outer layers of skin and creates tiny areas of microdamage that signal cells to begin a healing and repair process. We use a fractional CO2 laser that makes channels in the skin surrounded by healthy cells, leading to faster healing with similar results. As the skin cells repair the areas of damage, they also begin to produce collagen. This collagen will tighten and smooth the skin to erase lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
How Long Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Last?
As your skin heals and develops new collagen, Dr. Lanfranchi and his team will provide you with care instructions. Following these will make sure your results last as long as possible. Many people see their results last for several years. The aging process will continue, but you can return for another treatment if you ever want to refresh your results.
Is There Any Downtime With Laser Skin Resurfacing?
After treatment, your skin will look red, and you may have some swelling. Your skin will flake after a few days as the old epidermal cells shed. Your skin should return to normal within four weeks. Patients can apply make-up seven days after the treatment. Protecting your skin from the sun while healing is critical and will protect your developing collagen from UV damage.
What Results Will I See With Laser Skin Resurfacing
With laser skin resurfacing, you can expect to see improvements in the overall appearance of your skin. You will also see results including:
- Firmer, tighter skin
- Smoother skin texture
- More even skin tone
- Smaller pores
- Diminished lines and wrinkles
- More defined features
- Less noticeable acne scarring
- Improved signs of sun damage
- Glowing, youthful skin
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
If you have lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, or uneven skin tone, you may be a candidate for laser skin resurfacing. You may not be a good candidate if you have certain medical conditions. Most people make good candidates if they have reasonable expectations about their results and are on the light side in regards to skin tone & color.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
