Las Vegas Laser Skin Resurfacing
Give your skin a fresh start
Trying to achieve and maintain gorgeous skin can be frustrating. Even with good skin care habits, fighting visible aging can seem like a losing battle, especially in the Las Vegas sun. Wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and sun spots are just a few common skin flaws that can cause us to look older than we would like.
Laser skin resurfacing can help you stay ahead of the aging game, reducing existing fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration and leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin that better reflects your smart skin care habits. Increasingly, men and women are catching onto this idea and choosing laser resurfacing with our state-of-the-art Phoenix 15 CO2 laser.
How laser skin resurfacing with the Phoenix 15 CO2 works
Skin resurfacing lasers work by emitting concentrating beams of heat and light energy, heating the deep skin layers to encourage new cell growth. The intense heat creates an intentional injury to the skin, which causes the damaged layers to peel away and prompts new, healthier skin cell growth. The Phoenix 15 laser works by dividing the laser beam into multiple, microscopic shafts of light, so only a fraction of the skin is injured. This allows the laser to help reduce or eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and other age-related skin flaws with reduced healing time.
Why choose CO2 laser resurfacing?
It only takes a few seconds of research to realize that many laser skin procedures are available, and many promise to achieve similar results. So why might you choose the fractional CO2 fractional laser? One of the main reasons we chose to offer the Phoenix 15 CO2 laser at Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas is its versatility. By adjusting the laser depth and applicator tool, we can treat a number of common complaints:
- Reduce wrinkles and tighten skin around the eyelids
- Minimize brown spots or hyperpigmentation on the hands, face, chest or neck
- Remove warts or skin tags on the body
- Improve visible sun damage
- Reduce scars from injury or acne
- Achieve a more youthful skin appearance, helping postpone the need for surgery
What to expect from laser skin resurfacing at Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas
Treatment begins with a comprehensive skin evaluation and consultation with our experienced skincare provider. Together, the two of you will discuss your concerns and outline your priorities for improving your skin. If CO2 laser resurfacing is determined to be the right treatment for you, treatment will take place in our comfortable exam room. A cooling gel or other topical anesthetic may be applied to help ensure as comfortable an experience as possible.
Our skincare professional will then apply the Phoenix 15 wand, delivering the laser energy to the treatment area. You may feel a snapping or stinging sensation as the laser pulses are emitted. Following treatment you will be asked to stay out of the sun, and you may rest for the remainder of the day. Some redness, tenderness and slight bleeding may occur following treatment, and depending on the extent of the laser resurfacing you are receiving, you may need a few days of downtime. We will explain the recovery process in detail during your complimentary consultation.
Life after laser resurfacing
When performed by an experienced, skilled professional, laser resurfacing can achieve dramatic improvements in skin tone, texture, and appearance. Removal or reduction of lines, brown spots, and other skin flaws should last for years. However, it is important to realize that the natural aging process will continue, and new skin flaws are likely to form in the future as the years go by. You can extend your results with a high quality at-home skin care regime and good sunscreen habits.
