About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Professional-quality skin care can help you achieve a younger, refreshed appearance with laser skin resurfacing at Renovation Medical Spa in Reno, Nevada. Systems like the Sciton JOULE ProFractional produce results that are far superior to any store-bought products or home treatments. Patients who are looking for a way to treat blemishes like acne scars, skin discoloration, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles, may find the perfect solution with ProFractional laser skin resurfacing. Sciton ProFractional therapy is a laser treatment that uses advanced technology to achieve results. Thousands of microscopic laser beams penetrate the skin of the treatment area. These laser beams create tiny wounds that trigger the skin’s healing reaction. The wounds are so tiny that they heal extremely quickly. This healing reaction fixes skin blemishes and many imperfections to leave behind an even, clear complexion. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charles P. Virden often recommends ProFractional treatments to his patients to help them maintain their surgical results.
Laser skin resurfacing with the Sciton JOULE ProFractional therapy is a good option for patients who have skin trouble in their face, neck, chest, and hands, including:
- Moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes
- Sun-damaged skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Scars and brown spots
What to Expect
Laser skin resurfacing is a quick and comfortable procedure with little downtime that is performed in our office. Every treatment is tailored to the patient's specific skin conditions and desired outcome. ProFractional Resurfacing uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of the skin. Since only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen, adding firmness and resilience to the skin.
Patients may have some redness or swelling for 1 – 3 days after their procedure, but it is usually mild and easily concealed with makeup. After treatment, patients should be careful to avoid direct sunlight and always wear sun protection since the skin will be sensitive after the procedure. Most patients will see some results right away, but full results will appear in 2 – 3 months as the skin repairs itself.
