Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that uses laser energy to improve the appearance of your skin. The laser light is carefully directed at your skin, and as it passes over the surface, it removes layers of damaged or dead skin cells, paving the way for smoother and more youthful skin underneath. This process can leave your skin looking smoother, younger, and healthier. We use the cutting-edge Motus laser device to ensure optimal and safe results for all skin types.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing works by directing laser light at your skin. The laser light targets the outer layer of your skin called the epidermis. As the laser light is absorbed by the targeted spots, it breaks up the pigmented cells. The laser also stimulates collagen production in the dermis, which helps to improve skin quality and reduce wrinkles.
What can I expect from my laser skin resurfacing consultation?
During your laser skin resurfacing consultation, your doctor will evaluate your skin type and condition. They will also discuss your goals for treatment and explain the potential risks and side effects of laser skin resurfacing.
How is laser skin resurfacing performed?
Laser skin resurfacing is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. During the procedure, you will be given local anesthesia or sedation to minimize discomfort. The cosmetic provider will pass the handheld Motus laser device over your skin. As the laser passes over your skin, it will emit short pulses of light energy that remove damaged skin cells layer by layer. Depending on the extent of treatment, the procedure may take 30 minutes to two hours.
What are the side effects of laser skin resurfacing?
The side effects of laser skin resurfacing can include redness, swelling, and crusting or scabbing of the treated skin. These side effects are usually temporary and will resolve within a few days to weeks. Some people may also experience pigment changes in the treated area. However, our cosmetic providers carefully adjust the Motus laser device according to your skin type to minimize side effects and discomfort.
Does laser skin resurfacing involve downtime?
Laser skin resurfacing usually involves some downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be red and swollen, but there’s no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. You should, however, avoid strenuous physical activities and direct sunlight for a few days.
When will I see the results of laser skin resurfacing?
You will usually start to see the results of laser skin resurfacing within a few days to weeks. The full results may take several months to appear as new skin cells grow and replace the damaged ones, and the collagen production process may also take several weeks.
How long do the laser skin resurfacing results last?
The results of laser skin resurfacing can last for several months or years with proper at-home care and maintenance. However, as you proceed with your daily activities, your skin may get damaged because of sunlight, pollutants, and other factors, so you’ll need maintenance treatments.
How many laser skin resurfacing treatments do I need?
The number of laser skin resurfacing treatments you need will depend on your goals and the condition of your skin. Most people will need 2 to 5 treatments to see the desired results.
