What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses a variety of skin concerns to achieve skin you feel confident in. Using a laser, this procedure results in the reduction of redness and discoloration and the improved texture of your facial skin for a brighter, more youthful appearance. It’s not surgery and it’s not a face lift so there’s no downtime required, making it easy to fit into your schedule.

How It Works

How It Works

A laser with pulsating light targets multiple layers of skin, removing the outermost layer and heating the layer underneath to stimulate collagen growth. New skin grows in smoother, firmer, and provides a slight lift. Laser treatment also improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, benign pigmented lesions, and vascular lesions. This resurfacing procedure works on all skin types.

Benefits of Treatment

Laser treatments are perfect for enhancing the appearance of your facial skin and treating a variety of skin issues. The experienced team at Polaris Vein & Aesthetics uses this skin treatment to achieve a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, vascular and pigmented lesions, uneven skin tone or texture, sun damage, and more. We’ll help you improve your skin so you can be your most confident self.

Elluminate Laser Treatment

Elluminate Laser Treatment

At Polaris Vein & Aesthetics in Columbus, the specific facial skin resurfacing procedure we offer is the Elluminate treatment. Using the state-of-the-art EVO laser series by Quanta System, we help you achieve your skin goals by improving discoloration, wrinkles, and more – no face lift necessary. The EVO laser uses multiple wavelengths to target melanin, blood, and water at different layers of the skin, effectively reducing hyperpigmentation and stimulating collagen to lift and rejuvenate the skin.

Vascular and Pigmented Lesions

If visible veins or skin discoloration are bothering you, the Elluminate treatment is a great option. Using the EVO laser, we target specific vessels. As a result, you’ll see a reduction in the appearance of dark spots and visibl e veins at the treatment site as damaged skin is replaced by new skin and the body naturally disposes of the visible veins.

Acne Scarring

Acne can occur at any age, and treating it isn’t always easy or effective. If you have acne scarring that you’d like to get rid of, laser treatments can help. Using the EVO laser, we target specific areas of skin to encourage collagen production. Collagen is a protein that naturally occurs in the body and makes skin clearer and stronger. This treatment achieves a reduction in the appearance of acne scars to make your facial skin look smoother.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

It’s normal for fine lines and wrinkles to form as you age, but that doesn’t mean they’re not frustrating to deal with. If you’re not seeing the results you want with anti-aging creams and serums, try our facial rejuvenation procedure. Beams from the EVO laser target protein in the skin to lift, tighten, and revitalize your skin and improve its appearance over time. With multiple resurfacing treatments, you can enjoy smoother, radiant, more youthful-looking skin.

How to Prepare for Treatment

How to Prepare for Treatment

After you schedule your skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment, there are steps you can take to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during treatment and that you achieve the best results. In the weeks leading up to your appointment, avoid excess sun exposure and be sure to use sun protection when outdoors. Try to avoid smoking two weeks prior and following your appointment to reduce your risk of complications. It is important to begin hydration several days in advance of your procedure. Certain medications can interfere with treatment, so it’s important to mention any medical conditions and medicines you’re taking.

We’re happy to answer any questions you have about preparing for treatment as well as provide additional guidance during your consultation. We’ll also discuss your skin concerns and goals so we can create a personalized treatment plan that achieves the gorgeous skin you desire.

What to Expect During Treatment

What to Expect During Treatment

At the start of your appointment, we’ll take a closer look at your skin and the specific issues you’re concerned about. We’ll make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan before getting started. During treatment, we’ll keep you as comfortable as possible, as we always strive to provide an amazing customer experience. The lasers we use also include special features that make the procedure more comfortable. Most patients don’t require numbing before treatment, but that is an option if you are sensitive to laser treatments. Resurfacing treatment isn’t surgery and it’s not a lace lift, so discomfort during the procedure is minimal.

There’s no downtime required following treatment, but your facial skin may be red for a few days. During your appointment, we’ll provide instructions on how to soothe your skin as well as steps to ensure your skin heals properly so you get your desired results.

Who is a good candidate for this service?

Our skin rejuvenation treatment is designed to be safe and effective for all skin types. We can also treat dark spots of varying shapes, sizes, and colors thanks to the adjustable features of the lasers. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your skin concerns and ask you questions to ensure you’re a good candidate for laser treatment.

How many sessions does it take to see results?

The number of sessions required is different for everyone. Your skin type, the severity of your skin issues, and your desired outcomes all impact how many sessions you’ll need to see the best results. However, most patients see improvement after their first treatment. The team at Polaris Vein & Aesthetics will create a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals.

Is this surgery? Will it hurt?

Laser skin resurfacing is not surgery and it’s not a face lift. There’s no downtime after the procedure and you can expect a comfortable experience. Each laser we use has design features that enhance your comfort as well as target trouble areas with precision to promote healing. The EVO laser also features a cooling function to soothe hot spots. We can also numb your skin at the start of your appointment for additional comfort, but most patients don’t need this.
