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 Dr. Pancholi and his experienced team to get that fresh start.
Why choose CO2 laser resurfacing with Dr. Pancholi?
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 CO2 fractional laser, and why choose Dr. Pancholi’s team to perform your treatment? One of the main reasons is this laser’s versatility. With years of training and a thorough knowledge and understanding of skin anatomy, Dr. Pancholi and his team can adjust the laser to safely and effectively 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, surgery, or acne
- Achieve a more youthful skin appearance, helping postpone the need for surgery
How CO2 laser skin resurfacing works
Skin resurfacing lasers work by emitting selected and focused beams of heat and light energy, heating the deep skin layers to target the thick, uppermost layers of skin that give us a dull, rough looking complexion. While doing this, the deeper layers of the skin become heated and encourage newer healthier skin growth. Dr. Pancholi is able to control the intensity of the treatment to customize to your skin. Additionally, quicker recovery is possible when he uses a fractionated CO2 laser setting. In doing so, the laser beam is divided into multiple, microscopic shafts of light, much like a checkerboard, so only a fraction of the skin is injured. This allows visible improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and other age-related skin flaws with reduced healing time. For those needing more intense treatment, the non-fractionated setting can be used to provide a more complete treatment that will come with a little bit longer recovery, but will ultimately achieve more dramatic improvements.
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, we will start you on a pre-treatment regimen to begin the process. After this pretreatment regimen is complete, you will return to our office to receive your laser treatment.
During treatment, 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 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.
