What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Santè Spa | aesthetics & wellness is a noninvasive aesthetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to remove damaged skin one layer at a time. The treatment addresses facial lines and wrinkles and minimizes skin irregularities, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered an effective facial treatment for people who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the skin's condition, the laser may be adjusted for optimal results. There is some downtime needed for most laser skin resurfacing facials. During your consultation at our Thousand Oaks, CA office, family nurse practitioner Lovelle Valencia will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.

- Reduced appearance of scars and sun damage
- Reduction of pores and inconsistent skin surface

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Fraxel?
You have multiple factors to consider when choosing which type of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for you. Laser skin resurfacing is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you have skin damaged by the sun, age spots, acne scars, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation issues, a laser skin resurfacing procedure can be needed to address these complexion blemishes. In addition, it works well for those who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing isn't suggested if you have very dark skin or active acne outbreaks. Additionally, it is important to be aware that there is a recovery period associated with these laser treatments. Certain patients, depending on their skin condition, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks for their skin to normalize.
What Should I Expect With Laser Skin Resurfacing?
If you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper laser resurfacing session, you may be given a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser treatment. The retinoid helps prepare the skin for maximum results. Medication may be suggested prior to the treatment to help minimize discomfort for greater relaxation throughout your session. If your skin needs mild correction, local anesthesia will be used to numb treated areas where the laser will target. A type of sedation may be necessary for treating the whole face or deeper laser treatments. During the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the laser passes over your skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for improvement. You will feel the heat of the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy is designed to eliminate damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen production.

How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the laser skin resurfacing method you and Lovelle choose for your treatment, you might need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deep laser treatments will give you longer-lasting results, but will need a lengthy recovery period. You should tell Lovelle about how frequently you are willing to return for appointments so she can consider this when choosing a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
How much does laser skin resurfacing with the Harmony XL PRO cost?
Laser skin resurfacing estimation based on the treatment you get. In your initial consultation, Lovelle will listen to your skin problems and goals before reviewing the types of resurfacing. Then, she will help you select your resurfacing treatment and talk to you about costs. Santè Spa & Wellness often offers treatment specials and packages, so ask for more information during your consultation.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Lovelle or someone on her staff will give you tips on how you can help your skin heal after an appointment. The number one rule is do not pick or peel flaking skin. Doing this could cause long-term damage like scars. You should avoid all methods for hair removal in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or creams. Our Thousand Oaks, CA team can recommend an ointment to help soothe and heal treated areas.
