What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at AestheticFX Med Spa is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses laser energy to remove damaged surface skin with the Tetra CO2 CoolPeel platform. The procedure is performed on Little Elm, Prosper, and McKinney, TX men and women who wish to minimize facial wrinkles, lines and skin irregularities, such as acne scarring and more. Sometimes known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered an effective treatment for people who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the condition of your complexion, the treatment may be adjusted for the best results. With the CoolPeel laser, discomfort and downtime are minimal, even compared to similar laser skin resurfacing platforms. Any concerns or questions may be discussed with Frisco, TX dual certified nurse practitioner Beverly Farris during a one-on-one consultation at our Med Spa.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
"I was very skeptical my first time. Had been considering dysport or Botox for a while but was nervous and didn’t want to go to just anyone. Beverly’s qualifications, results and reputation speak for themselves. She truly understands facial anatomy and muscular physiology. She thoroughly explains the justification for where she places product and this is SO IMPORTANT when someone is messing with your moneymaker (face 😄 )! I feel like myself, but fresher and more vibrant. I get so many compliments on my face but it’s not overwhelmingly obvious, which I love. I will keep going back for more and I’m excited to start trying some of the skin care treatments she offers as well."- A.O. / Facebook / Mar 09, 2022
"Being going here for almost 2 years now. Absolutely the best ever. Beverly is not only licensed nurse, but also very knowledgeable, always thoroughly explain every treatments pro and cons and hand pick what’s the best for the clients, not just the dollar amount. Did I say they are all very reasonable priced??? The place not only offers the basic injections, but also the newest, the most advanced laser treatments. One step for everything. If you are seeking for a professional Med Spa. No need to seek further."- F.F. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2023
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Tetra CO2 CoolPeel is a fractional ablative laser treatment, which makes it ideal for treating deep wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and pigmentation problems. Topical anesthesia will likely be used to numb certain areas where the laser will target. The laser energy will destroy damaged skin cells while stimulating new collagen growth, but you probably won't feel the heat from the laser thanks to the unique CoolPeel technology. Your skin may have slight redness, but this will go away in a few days, and the peeling process will occur over the next 3 – 7 days. Full skin recovery could take a few weeks; however, you can return to your everyday activities immediately following the laser peel treatment. It's vital to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to prevent scarring. Once the peeling process has finished, your skin will feel smoother while appearing younger, clearer, and rejuvenated.
IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Facial resurfacing with the Tetra CO2 CoolPeel system offers patients the opportunity to tackle a wide range of skin concerns and complexion issues and, with the ability to be calibrated based on each patient's individual skin type and other factors, many men and women can be safely and effectively treated with this technology. However, patients with darker skin tones may not be eligible for this particular type of skin resurfacing treatment, as there is some risk of hyperpigmentation or discoloration, which may be permanent. Additionally, patients with active acne outbreaks or infections, as well as women who are pregnant, may need to wait to schedule their treatment. Even if you are not a candidate for CO2 laser skin resurfacing, our knowledgeable aesthetic team can recommend an alternative solution that helps you achieve a clearer, healthier complexion you can be proud of.
