Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Sun damage, acne, aging, and more can all leave your skin looking uneven, wrinkled, and lifeless. Skin resurfacing is an aesthetic treatment that targets areas of imperfection and stimulates new, healthy cell growth to give you better-looking skin.

Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics proudly offers skin resurfacing with the SmartXide DOT Laser® fractional CO2 system. Skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of all the most common facial imperfections, from sunspots to acne scars.

Dermal optical thermolysis (DOT) is a revolution in the field of skin rejuvenation. It’s a high-tech scanning system that targets skin imperfections and creates tiny perforations in the skin. The micro-ablative system promotes skin rejuvenation with rapid healing.

Alongside DOT, Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics offers a broad range of other skin surfacing treatments, including chemical peel, MicroNeedling, acne scar treatment, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.

What are the benefits of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing triggers new skin to grow in place of old, damaged skin, so it’s a powerful aesthetic treatment that can address a wide range of skin issues. You could benefit from skin resurfacing if you’re bothered by:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Loose skin

The SmartXide system creates microscopic perforations in the skin, which stimulates healthy cell regeneration without the need for long recovery times. Treatment is customizable, and it's possible for several skin issues to be addressed in just one session.

Am I a good candidate for skin resurfacing? 

Skin resurfacing with SmartXide is personalized to meet your needs. The aesthetic team offers comprehensive skin analysis consultations to help you determine if skin resurfacing is right for you. Most people in generally good health who are bothered by the skin issues listed above are good candidates for skin resurfacing.

Your laser skin resurfacing procedure takes about one hour in the office. The team cleanses and prepares your skin, applying a topical and/or local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Most patients find that treatment is well-tolerated, but you may notice a stinging sensation.

Expect your recovery time to vary depending on the intensity of your treatment. If you had mild skin imperfections, you might not have any noticeable downtime. Following more intense treatments, you may experience redness and swelling for several days.

You don’t have to live with embarrassing skin imperfections. Boost your confidence and revitalize your skin with laser skin resurfacing. Call Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics, or book your appointment online.
