Laser Skin Resurfacing
Reverse the Signs of Aging
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment wherein lasers improve your skin tone, texture, and quality, rolling back the signs of aging and sun damage. Non-ablative laser treatments create micro-channels or micro-punctures on your skin’s surface to activate your body’s natural healing process, including skin cell regeneration and collagen production. Skin cell regeneration encourages the formation of new and flawless skin tissues to replace the damaged skin. Meanwhile, collagen production tightens your skin, reduces wrinkles, and restores the youthful firmness of your skin tissues.
LaseMD for Laser Skin Resurfacing
Aura Aesthetic performs laser skin resurfacing with LaseMD, one of the most advanced non-ablative laser technologies developed by Lutronic. LaseMD can create micro-channels without disrupting the outer layer of the skin’s surface, ensuring optimal healing and recovery. Furthermore, the LaseMD device ensures heightened personalization to address your unique skin concerns. It’s also suitable for all skin types, skin tones, and skin concerns, a significant departure from earlier laser technologies with limited applicability in darkly pigmented skin types.

Laser skin resurfacing is the ideal cosmetic treatment for patients with age-related skin concerns, sun damage, or acne scars.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Overview
Your skin will be prepared — the clinicians will thoroughly cleanse the treatment areas, removing all the oil, makeup debris, and dust. The doctor will also apply topical anesthesia to ensure you have a smooth and comfortable experience. If the treatment area is large, she may also recommend a sedative. After preparing your skin, the LaseMD device is moved over your skin — the fractional, non-ablative laser creates micro-channels without damaging the surface skin tissues.
In some cases, the micro-channels may also be used to deliver PRP (platelet-rich plasmas) or other products into the skin. Laser skin resurfacing activates your skin’s healing process, skin cell regeneration, and collagen production capabilities. However, PRP infusion can further enhance the results, catalyzing the healing process to heal your acne scars and wrinkles. If you opt for PRP infusion with laser skin resurfacing, your doctor will likely draw your blood and prepare the PRP before the laser skin resurfacing begins.
Your skin may develop scabs as the old skin starts flaking off, paving the way for the fresh new skin underneath. The treatment results will start appearing in a few days, but the final results may become evident in two to three weeks. Your skin will seem considerably smoother, younger, and tighter at the end of the recovery process. Your doctor may also recommend scheduling a few additional sessions to maximize the results.
After the treatment, you’ll experience some burning sensations, bumps, swelling, or redness around the treatment areas for a few days. However, you can minimize the discomfort by following your doctor’s post-treatment recovery guidelines. You can minimize the swelling with ice packs. You can resume most of your daily activities and work soon after the treatment, but you must avoid strenuous exercises for at least a week or two.
Schedule Your Consultation
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will start with a personal consultation with our advanced care providers. They will carefully assess your skin quality, review your medical history, and discuss your concerns to curate the ideal laser skin resurfacing treatment plan. They may also recommend some preparatory steps to prepare your skin for the treatment to enhance the results and reduce the side effects. However, in most cases, the laser skin resurfacing treatment can be performed immediately.
