Types of Skin Resurfacing Treatments
At Renew MD, we currently have four different laser skin resurfacing treatments for patients:
The Opus Plasma treatment uses an aggressive ablative CO2 laser to resurface the skin. Downtime is minimal, and you will see impressive results. It’s one of the most effective and only Fractional Plasma device, Lleaving you with brighter, tighter and younger-looking skin.
NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) is used in the Venus Viva machine to deliver non-invasive skin resurfacing. It can decrease visible pores for a more even skin texture, make you look younger, and fade away scars and other cosmetic concerns. Treatments take about 45 minutes, and it tends to be good for people with sagging skin.
Renew MD also uses Laser Genesis to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and skin texture. It’s a 30-minute treatment with no downtime, making it ideal if you need some laser skin resurfacing during your lunch break. Short pulses of light energy are used to stimulate collagen production, leading to healthier skin after multiple treatments. Laser Genesis has no downtime.
At our office, we use the Bella-Derm II Microdermabrasion system to deliver exceptional anti-aging results. It offers deep facial exfoliation, really getting rid of impurities on the skin. We often combine this with a Red LED Light treatment to further encourage collagen production and improve the way your skin looks and feels.
Benefits of Skin Resurfacing
All skin resurfacing treatments are non-invasive and don’t use any chemicals. They’re effective at improving various skin concerns from the signs of aging to acne scars. By removing the uppermost layer of your skin, so many impurities will be gone, leaving your skin in a healthier state. The use of laser energy also helps to encourage collagen production, which makes your skin firmer and younger-looking.
Plus, you don’t need much downtime after any of these treatments, particularly when compared to the surgical alternatives. For many people, skin resurfacing is a more affordable and less painful alternative to surgical intervention for facial rejuvenation.
