Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing treatments vaporize off the outer layers of damaged, wrinkled, or scarred skin which is replaced by smooth, new, healthier-looking skin. Laser resurfacing treatments can be customized by adjusting the depth that the laser vaporizes, to provide a range of treatments. Deep, full surface resurfacing, which completely replaces wrinkled or damaged skin, can result in dramatic improvement, while milder MicroLaser Peels can improve the skin's texture with little social downtime.

Before and after laser resurfacing under eyesWith the development of fractionated ablative laser resurfacing, like our Sciton Profractional, 10-30% of the skin in the treated area is vaporized, rather than the entire surface, and dramatic results can be obtained with less discomfort, downtime, and risk. Profractional treatments can be safely performed on any color skin and anywhere on the body, unlike full laser resurfacing, which is limited to the face.

Because these treatments remove a percentage of or multiple layers of skin, and the most dramatic results are obtained with deeper levels,  it's important to have these treatments performed by a practitioner with extensive laser resurfacing experience. 

Dr. Cynthia Elliott has not only been performing laser skin resurfacing treatments since 2008, she's also a certified laser trainer who has taught other practitioners in both the Caribbean as well as the U.S.

Skinspirations' multiple laser resurfacing treatment options (described in more detail by following the links below), can improve wrinkles, "crinkles" (like fine "smoker's lines"), crepiness, sun damage, rough texture, some types of scars, and can remove raised brown spots & benign skin growths.

Fractionated ablative lasers like the Sciton Profractional at Skinspirations have revolutionized the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, poor texture, stretch marks and scars. It's finally possible to look 5-10 years younger after just 2 treatments and with only 4-5 days of social down time.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing can be done over the entire face or only to those areas where fine lines may be prominent, such as around the eyes or mouth. Since often one area of the face like the eyes can make people assume you're older, treating that single area can take 10 years off of your appearance in one hour.

Laser Peel

The Sciton Laser Peel vaporizes off more of the outer layers of skin than the MicroLaserPeel, but not as much as full layer deep resurfacing. It's ideal for replacing crepey thin skin such as around the eyes with smooth, new skin.

A LaserMicroPeel vaporizes away the outer 20 - 50 microns of treated skin to improve texture, sun damage, pore size appearance and fine lines. Unlike deeper Laser Peels, they can be done on any part of the body and are an excellent choice for removing sun damaged skin from the neck and chest.
