Laser Skin Resurfacing
Our skin is key to looking young and vibrant. However, it is vulnerable to all manner of damage. From UV light damage dehydration, your skin can begin to show signs of wear from an early age. Aging itself also contributes, with signs showing over time as the elasticity and collagen reproduction start to fade. The results of all this can appear as age spots, wrinkles, and uneven tone and texture. When this happens, it can often make us look older than we feel on the inside. Laser skin resurfacing aims to fight skin damage and the aging process through advanced medical methods.
Laser skin resurfacing is just one of the cosmetic treatments we offer at Cole Aesthetic Center. We continually focus on pressing forward, providing cutting-edge treatments that can boost confidence and deliver the results you want. Call us today to get started on achieving clearer, more vibrant skin with laser skin resurfacing.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical treatment that helps patients restore a youthful look and feel to their skin. The system uses an ablative laser that is effective in treating sun-damaged skin, acne scarring, moderate wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration. Since it is non-surgical, you do not need to worry about incisions or lengthy downtime from your treatment. Instead, you can get improved skin with a safer, faster, and effective laser treatment.
How Is Laser Resurfacing Performed?
Laser resurfacing is done under moderate IV sedation. Once the patient is sedated, Dr. Cole begins the procedure. The laser emits a specialized beam of light that passes through the skin at varying depths, ablating (evaporating) very fine layers of skin. We continue to repeat this process across the target area or areas.
As a result, the laser diminishes the look of wrinkles and other unwanted textures and tones. Older, aged collagen is remodeled into newer, fresher skin. As new cells from the healing process begin to grow, the skin gradually becomes smoother and softer. So you can expect to see continued improvements in the weeks and months following your treatment sessions.
Combining Laser Resurfacing With Other Procedures
For patients looking to further improve moderate to severe wrinkles, a surgical procedure may be something to consider that targets the concerned area. A facelift or S-lift can help soften texture around the mouth, cheek, neck, and jowl area, creating a more dramatic improvement.
Patients may also consider combining laser skin resurfacing with other non-invasive treatments. From dermal fillers to skin tightening, we provide a complete suite of non-surgical treatments to enhance your results.

Downtime and Recovery for Laser Resurfacing
Patients can expect to see redness and sloughing of the skin for around 10-14 days. However, during this time, you can still perform most of your daily activities. Dr. Cole will provide you with complete instructions for what to avoid while waiting for your skin to adapt to the treatment.
During the healing stages, it is important to try and avoid as much sun exposure to the treatment area as possible. This is key, as laser treatments tend to make the skin more sensitive to UV rays. Physical barriers such as hats and visors can help reduce your exposure and sunscreen should be applied once the skin is fully healed.
If you have any questions at any point, do not hesitate to contact Cole Aesthetic Center. We are with you every step of the way to ensure your experience is both comfortable and successful.
Once you have healed, you should begin to see your final results. However, many patients report continued improvement for up to a year after treatment. Your results can often last for years, but it is still vital to take care of your skin during this time. Careful skin care and protection can go a long way in keeping your results for longer.
