Do you want more youthful, supple, smooth, even-toned skin? There are many ways to improve the quality, appearance, and texture of skin, with one of the most popular being laser resurfacing. In the past, laser treatment was considered aggressive, and it involved considerable downtime. Thanks to advances in modern aesthetic medicine, we have more precise, gentler techniques available.
The fractional laser
Fractional laser resurfacing can achieve better results than older CO2 treatments, with much less downtime. This is a good option for individuals with fine wrinkles, skin discoloration, acne scars, sun damage, or signs of aging. This advanced laser technology is exceptionally safe and predictable when used correctly.
We use the Palomar Icon 1540 laser-resurfacing device. It is one of the newer fractional laser devices on the market, and the technology has been refined to achieve better and more predictable results with greater comfort. Because the treatment is so gentle, anesthetic is not even considered a necessity, although it is available to ensure optimal patient comfort.
Choosing the right provider
Although laser treatment is very safe and non-surgical, the results, as well as the safety, are dependent on the skill of the technician. Elizabeth Hagen, our licensed Master Medical Aesthetician has over 15 years of experience, and she is well known for her exceptional skills. She is a respected trainer, teaching other aesthetic medical professionals to use the Palomar Icon 1540 laser system. Our facility is a national training center for this and other technologies.
