Laser Skin Resurfacing
Give Your Skin a Fresh Start
They say, “Youth is wasted on the young.” This is especially true when it comes to skincare. As we age, the thoughtless damage that we inflicted on our skin in our younger years starts to catch up with us. Frequent exposure to sun and pollution, poorly performed extractions and other skincare mishaps can leave skin looking blotchy or discolored. Not to mention, the natural aging process (including a gradual decrease in the body’s production of collagen, a protein essential for healthy, fresh skin) can take a toll too, causing wrinkles, sagging facial skin that has lost its elasticity and/or a loss of facial volume.
Bulan Plastic Surgery can change all that with laser skin resurfacing, giving skin a fresh start. Although no one can completely stop the aging process, our experience can help “turn back time,” giving you healthier, younger-looking skin.
What Problems Does Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Bulan Plastic Surgery offers intense pulsed light (IPL), laser and radio frequency (RF) skin resurfacing treatments to meet your unique aesthetic needs. Skin resurfacing treatment can improve a range of skin problems, including wrinkles, acne or surgical scars, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, skin laxity, rough skin texture and much more (In fact, Pixel RF skin resurfacing treatment is currently being tested for the treatment of stretch marks!).
How It Works
At Bulan Plastic Surgery, our Alma Laser 360iQ combines multiple technologies in one laser platform to treat a variety of skin conditions. In general, the laser platform is used to deliver energy (i.e., IPL, laser and/or RF energy) into the skin’s underlying tissue layers, causing controlled inflammation at the targeted tissue layer. The body responds by stimulating its natural healing mechanisms, which create new tissue that replace the impaired tissue as well as new collagen. This results in healthier, younger-looking skin.
The best part is that skin resurfacing treatment is a relatively quick, nonsurgical procedure, providing long-lasting aesthetic results with little to no downtime and minimal risk.
Although some aesthetic effects may be visible immediately after skin resurfacing treatment, your skin’s appearance will continue to improve as the body generates new tissue cells and collagen.
More About Skin Resurfacing Technology
Depending on your primary aesthetic goals for skin resurfacing treatment, Linda chooses which skin resurfacing technology to emphasize in your treatment. She can use one type of technology or multiple types to treat various skin conditions. Let’s take a closer look.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. IPL delivers pulses of light into the skin’s superficial tissue layers to even out skin tone, reducing discoloration. It can also decrease the appearance of broken blood vessels.
Clear Lift non-ablative laser technology delivers energy into the skin’s superficial tissue layers to produce non-invasive skin tightening by stimulating collagen formation with virtually no downtime.
Pixel precision laser technology delivers laser energy into the skin’s deeper tissue layers. This skin resurfacing treatment option creates microscopic perforations in tissue cells, stimulating the production of new collagen, which improves the skin’s tone and texture, as well as smoothes out fine lines and mild to moderate wrinkles.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy provides fractional skin resurfacing. RF skin resurfacing treatment is similar to other types of skin resurfacing in that it mildly damages targeted skin tissue cells, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and inducing the production of new collagen. RF energy also causes the collagen that is present in the skin to contract, providing a skin tightening effect.
