In recent years, the advancement of laser technologies has paved the way for numerous aesthetic treatments. Laser skin resurfacing allows us to improve the overall quality, tone, texture, and complexion of your skin with a few bursts of laser energy.
Protect & Support Your Skin
Your skin is your armor. It protects your internal organs from numerous dangers, such as harmful UV rays, injuries, bacteria, viruses, pollutants, and other toxins. Since your skin is constantly exposed to the elements, it can soon develop scars, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, acne, and other concerns that make you look dull and tired. Laser skin resurfacing in Sarasota allows us to harness the power of cutting-edge laser technologies to eliminate the damaged layers of skin and pave the way for healthier skin.
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that involves channeling bursts of laser energy into the uppermost layers of the skin. The laser energy burns and removes the uppermost layers of the damaged skin and stimulates collagen production, thus paving the way for smoother, softer, healthier, and firmer skin. We perform laser skin resurfacing using a specialized CO2 laser that can remove thin layers of skin without damaging the surrounding tissues, thus ensuring safe results with minimal downtime.

Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Journey: Consultation, Treatment, Recovery
Your laser skin resurfacing in Sarasota journey starts with a detailed consultation with our medical providers. During your consultation, the medical provider carefully analyzes your skin type and conditions, asks about your concerns and goals, and reviews your medical history. After a thorough evaluation, the medical provider determines if you’re a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing and curates a personalized treatment plan.
During laser skin resurfacing, the medical provider cleanses your facial skin, provides protective eyeglasses, and administers local anesthesia to ensure comfort. The CO2 laser device is pressed against your skin and activated to deliver a 10,600nm wavelength of laser energy to remove the uppermost layers of your damaged skin cells. The handheld device is moved all around the treatment areas. The entire treatment takes around 30 minutes.
You must take at least one week off work after your laser skin resurfacing. You can expect redness, swelling, itching, and stinging sensation for a few days after your session, and some people look like they have a severe sunburn. Your skin will look raw and blister in places. You can resume low-level activities and work within a week, but high-intensity activities and exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided for a month.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Results
The results of laser skin resurfacing in Sarasota will appear gradually and progressively over time. The side effects will take at least a month to fade away completely, following which your skin will look smoother, tighter, and more youthful. The results will continue improving for several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers. Some patients also need up to 3 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results.
