Aging is inevitable for everyone, and different signs of aging can start to show anywhere on your skin as you grow older. Fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sun-damaged skin, liver spots, birthmarks, and other skin imperfections are just some of the unwanted features that can make you appear older than you really are.
At Dr. V Medical Aesthetics, we offer our patients effective cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of these unsightly areas using state-of-the-art laser technology. With our lasers and team of skilled and precise medical professionals, our laser skin resurfacing procedures can get rid of old, dull, and blemished skin and replace it with younger and firmer skin free of spots, lines, and other types of blemishes.
Through laser skin surfacing, we can clear away common skin issues on old skin and bring forward newer skin cells rich in collagen and nutrients for that natural youthful glow and skin rejuvenation. At our clinic, you can expect exceptional service that can enhance your appearance without the need for more invasive plastic surgery.
Also known as laser peel, laser vaporization, or lasabrasion, laser resurfacing is an aesthetic treatment that uses the latest laser technology to treat blemishes like acne, sun-damaged skin, and various signs of aging, including wrinkles. This process triggers your skin’s natural healing process. As a result, it sheds away the older layer of skin at the surface to make way for newer, younger skin cells.
During a laser skin resurfacing treatment, our doctor will use an advanced fractional laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light onto the treatment area. This will do two things: first, it will remove the epidermis – the unwanted damaged skin composed of old skin cells – with one precise layer at a time. Second, it heats the next layer of the skin, the dermis, which triggers your body’s natural collagen production, which can improve the skin quality around the area. After the treatment, the new skin that develops over the treated area is smoother and firmer.
At Dr. V Medical Aesthetics, we use the latest laser technology and work with precision and accuracy. This means minimal discomfort especially in delicate treatment areas, as well as a lowered risk of side effects like skin discoloration common in older laser equipment. Our team is fully-equipped with both the technology and the skills to produce stunning, youthful results.
And by using lasers to stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production, your body can naturally develop natural-looking results. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keep your skin elastic, firm, and healthy, and it’s a normal part of aging for your skin to produce less of these over time. Laser resurfacing can give your skin a boost to increase production and a signal to get rid of the old skin and replace it with better-looking skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced non-surgical alternative for more invasive plastic surgery procedures like facelifts and skin grafting. Its minimally invasive process can treat a number of skin problems on the face and body, including:

Schedule an initial consultation with Dr. V Medical Aesthetics and we can determine if laser skin resurfacing is the right treatment towards younger, healthier skin.
A: Yes! At Dr. V Medical Aesthetics, we use state-of-the-art laser equipment that can safely and effectively treat people any skin type and hair color without any major side effects. In the past, laser treatments like laser resurfacing or laser hair removal were limited to people with lighter skin because older laser equipment could cause skin discoloration that was more visible (and permanent) on people with a darker skin tone. The dark pigment in hair color was also essential for lasers to effectively heat the skin, so people with lighter hair colors were difficult to treat.
A: The cost of treatment can vary between patients, the targeted areas, and the type of laser that best suits your body type and treatment. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average non-ablative laser session can cost $1,031 per session, while ablative skin resurfacing treatments are $2,330 per session. Depending on the issue you want to treat, you may need up to four treatments before you can achieve the results you want. Schedule a consultation with us to get a more accurate estimate based on the areas you want lasered.
A: Some common side effects can include swelling, redness, bumps, peeling, and scabbing around the treated area, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers, home remedies, and other remedies our doctors may provide you.
