Laser Skin Resurfacing

Everything You Need to Know About Laser Skin Resurfacing

As your skin ages and the signs of aging start to show, cosmetic irregularities like wrinkles, scarring, acne and sun damage can begin to have an impact on your appearance. Dr. Suarez offers laser skin resurfacing at her Bella Excellence South Tampa Med Spa , to remove these visible flaws as well as improve upon your overall skin tone and texture.

What is Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure that leverages the use of lasers to address various skin concerns ranging from minor to serious skin issues. Lasers work by vaporizing the Epidermis-the outer layer of your skin, with the precision that induces an increase in the production of collagen that results in an improved skin tone.

Laser skin resurfacing is aimed at diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots. Furthermore, they are widely used for improving complexion and treating sun-damaged skin.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

Laser skin resurfacing treatments offer various benefits and advantages over conventional skin rejuvenation methods. Below are some of them to enumerate, but a few:

Quick and Easy:

Laser skin resurfacing treatments are convenient and quick. They are non-obstructive to your day-to-day living or work schedule and routine. Furthermore, the downtime and healing time are not too long and rigorous. Contrary to conventional facials and other skin rejuvenation treatments, Lasers are effective and don’t take much time to help you accomplish your skin goals. Moreover, this treatment merely takes 35-40 minutes when done for some targeted areas of the face and 2 hours or so when done for the complete face.

Reduce Fine lines & Wrinkles: 

 Laser skin resurfacing effectively diminishes signs of aging, such as wrinkles, superficial lines, or creases. Not only is the process of aging responsible for the appearance of wrinkles, but frequent muscular movements also arise from these lines and creases. Having said that, Laser Skin Resurfacing is ineffective in softening wrinkles and fine lines.

Increase Collagen Production:

Laser Skin Resurfacing greatly encourages the production of collagen. As you age, your skin loses its tightness and firmness. It is impossible to bounce back to your youthful skin without the help of cosmetic rejuvenation treatments. Laser skin resurfacing treatments stand out of all those treatments and give a tight, young, fresh, and radiant appearance to your face.

Diminish Acne & Traumatic Scars:

Perhaps acne scars and scars from accidents or surgery are the most stubborn marks on the face. They don’t go away easily despite consistent efforts. However, Laser skin resurfacing has delivered promising results. Laser Skin resurfacing eliminates their appearance and gives your face a clear and bright look.

Reduce the Appearance of Prominent Blood Vessels

These blood vessels appearing on the skin are broken capillaries or spider veins. They are caused due to diet, excess sun exposure, steroids, alcohol consumption, and hormonal changes. That said, merely a couple of sessions of laser skin resurfacing treatments will break down and eliminate or minimize their appearance.

Minimize the Size of Enlarged Pores

Enlarged pores are formed due to Genetics and age. They make your skin oily, uneven, and bumpy. However, laser skin resurfacing can minimize the size of these pores for a long time and make your skin feel radiant and clean.

Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments

What it is Cutera Laser

The Cutera 595 nm laser is a contemporary treatment based on cutting-edge technology to promote vibrant and healthy-looking skin for both genders.

It aims to treat the conditions widely associated with early signs of aging, skin damage due to excess sun exposure and UV Radiation, and hormonal changes such as the appearance of spider leg veins, pus-filled bumps, and red stretch marks. Moreover, it also diminishes the appearance of acne scars, surgery & accident marks, and vascular moles and warts.

What is Aerolase NeoSkin

Aerolase Neo Skin leverages 650 Microsecond technology that effectively restores your skin’s natural glow with safety. It is highly effective for various skin concerns like wrinkles, lines, creases, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, marks, and melasma, to name but a few.


Patients undergoing a laser skin resurfacing treatment may use oral or topical medications in the weeks prior to the procedure. Certain medications and topical ointments are not recommended before undergoing this type of procedure. Dr. Suarez will help you determine which laser is best for your particular situation, as well as create an individualized regimen using various lasers that is personalized specifically for you.

Laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective way to give your aging face a rejuvenated appearance. Laser skin resurfacing is not intended to treat minor blemishes-it’s designed for moderate-to-severe ones such as wrinkles, lines, scars, liver spots, and other signs of aging. This procedure will help smooth skin tone and texture while removing discoloration and those clear signs of aging. Laser skin resurfacing is generally safe; however, it can only be performed on the right candidate who has realistic expectations of the result before undergoing treatment. If you’re looking to treat minor cosmetic defects on your face Dr. Suarez may recommend other facial treatments such as chemical peels or skin care products. These procedures may not have the same benefits as laser skin resurfacing; however they are just as safe and effective depending on the circumstances!


Once you receive your laser skin resurfacing treatment, a topical ointment will likely be applied to prevent any inflammation. Bandages or facial tape may be used on some patients to ensure proper healing. Depending on the type of laser and depth of the treatment, side effects can include minor itching, inflammation, and slight discomfort. These symptoms are normal and will begin to subside in a few days after your laser skin resurfacing. Your skin may appear sensitive or pink for the first few weeks.

The length of your recovery depends on which laser you choose for your laser skin resurfacing procedure. No shaving for a few days afterward is advised since irritation might occur and your delicate facial skin needs to heal at its own pace. In some cases, a scab forms as the new skin starts to form. You should avoid disturbing it until it falls off by itself. After that, your skin will show results from the procedure with continued improvement over the months following the treatment.


When you’re looking for laser skin resurfacing, it’s important to choose a doctor who is skilled and understands your anatomy. Dr. Suarez stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, doctor when considering laser skin resurfacing.
