What is laser resurfacing?

So, what exactly is laser resurfacing? In Dallas, you have a myriad of options for different skin treatments, so why might laser resurfacing be the right choice for you?

Laser resurfacing is designed to help you clear your skin of blemishes and uneven texture. It works by taking advantage of the body’s natural collagen production methods.

Collagen is a protein found in the body that aids in the construction of healthy skin, tendons, muscle, and more. When we use a laser to induce small injuries in the skin, the body responds by creating additional collagen in the area. This can help your skin look clearer and smoother.

Why do you need laser resurfacing?

It can be difficult to know if you’re the right candidate for laser resurfacing in Dallas. There are many reasons you might consider scheduling this procedure.

The skin can become damaged in a wide variety of ways. The natural elements aren’t exactly optimal for keeping skin clear and smooth. You may find that your skin is damaged from things like:

  • Aging
  • Dry climates
  • Clogged pores
  • Direct sun exposure
  • Tanning beds
  • And much more!

When your skin can be damaged in so many different ways, it may feel like keeping your skin clear is impossible. But we have treatments that can help.

Scarring Solutions

Another reason that you might consider laser resurfacing is because of acne scars. While most people develop some kind of acne as they age, acne scarring isn’t quite as common. Acne scarring occurs when blemishes appear deep beneath the surface of the skin.

If these blemishes result in the breakdown of tissue, then you may see acne scars begin to form. Additionally, picking at existing acne blemishes may also cause scarring. Although it may take some effort to rid your skin of acne scars, it isn’t impossible.

You can clear your skin with the help of laser resurfacing in Dallas.

ProFractional Laser

One of the most effective solutions we offer for skin blemishes is the Sciton ProFractional laser. This laser resurfacing device works by creating microscopic injuries on the surface of the skin, forcing new collagen production in the treatment area.

This procedure is effective at treating a wide range of skin conditions.. You should consider trying the ProFractional laser if you’re struggling with symptoms like:

  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity
  • Scars
  • Depleted collagen
  • Signs of aging
  • Poor or uneven texture
  • Acne scars

If you’re suffering from any of these common skin conditions, consider scheduling a session with our team.

The Process

First, we’ll sit you down for a short consultation to see if this is the right treatment for you.

The consultation starts with a Visia facial analysis examination designed to help us better understand your symptoms and condition. On the day of the treatment, we’ll allow you to ask any final questions you have about your treatment, and then we’ll get started.

The procedure is relatively simple and short. First, we’ll numb you with a topical ointment and let it sit for 45 minutes so it can take effect.

Next, we will treat your damaged skin with the laser. The ProFractional treatment is precise enough that it doesn’t affect any smooth, blemish-free areas of skin.

To help with any discomfort from the laser, we offer ProNox, a patient controlled analgesic inhalation of 50% Nitrogen and 50% Oxygen to decrease anxiety and pain control.


Nobody wants to be confined to their room for weeks or months at a time while their skin heals. But your downtime following your ProFractional laser treatment is just 4 to 7 days.

That’s right—you’ll only need a week or less to experience a total recovery from your laser resurfacing treatment in Dallas. We don’t think you should have to be put out of commission just to experience clearer skin.

You will likely notice some physical effects following the completion of your treatment. You can expect to notice red skin that looks and feels most similar to a sunburn. Fortunately, this will fade in just a few days.

Additional Aftercare Options

There are some steps you can take to speed up your recovery time following laser resurfacing in Dallas. To mitigate the risk of damaging your sensitive, healing skin, you must wear a non-comedogenic sunscreen (one that does not block your pores and one that does not contain harmful preservatives) of SPF 30 or higher.

Most of us needed constant reminders to wear sunscreen as a kid, and many of us still do today! Our medical-grade sunscreen can help protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. 

We will provide you with a post laser treatment kit which contains the medical grade products needed to increase your healing and decrease discomfort from swelling and redness.

Other Skin Treatments

There are other ways to repair your skin besides laser resurfacing. In Dallas, we have a number of different treatments available to clear up blemishes and damaged skin.


For a treatment that can address areas all over the body, microneedling by SkinPen® can be an excellent option. As the name might suggest, microneedling works with the help of specially designed needles.

The microneedling applicator has a number of small needles that create microscopic injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen growth. We offer the SkinPen for microneedling, which is FDA-approved to treat skin damage and acne scars.

Microneedling is also highly convenient—the treatment takes about an hour including time to numb your face with a topical anesthetic. If you need to clear up your damaged skin, microneedling might be the right choice for you.

BBL Photofacial

The BBL Photofacial is another option for treating damaged or aging skin. .

“BBL” stands for “broadband light,” which is a pulsing light that can clear up blemishes in the skin. The BBL photofacial is an effective choice for patients with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, rosacea, acne scars, skin laxity, and more.

There is no downtime following a BBL Photofacial, so once you’re finished with the treatment, you can go about your day as usual. However, you must wear a protective sunscreen afterwards and stay out of the sun for the next week. If you experience redness or swelling, we have medical-grade post procedure products to reduce any discomfort or redness.
