Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat the following skin issues and in some cases may be a good option to a facelift/neck lift:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Pigmented lesions
- Skin texture irregularities
- Sun damage
The laser skin resurfacing technology utilized at Piedmont Plastic Surgery allows Dr. Vaughn precise control and the ability to customize treatment to your specific needs and skin type.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure
The Matrix Fractional CO2 laser directs tiny pulses of light into the dermal layer of your affected skin area, leaving your healthy skin intact. These penetrating columns of light help stimulate your natural collagen growth and will leave your skin feeling smooth, more youthful and healthy.
This state-of-the-art technology also reduces the recovery time associated with other laser skin resurfacing treatments while producing superior results.
Depending on the depth and concentration of your specific treatment, recovery from laser skin resurfacing may take four to 10 days. During this time, avoiding direct sun exposure and using a topical cream supplied by our office will help speed your recovery. Dr. Vaughn will thoroughly review your recovery guidelines with you prior to your laser skin resurfacing procedure.
Other Laser Skin Procedures
In addition to using the Matrix Fractional CO2 laser to treat some forms of skin damage, Dr. Vaughn also utilizes a KTP laser to treat conditions including:
- Vascular lesions
- “Sun spots” or other brown spots on the face and hands
