Laser Skin Resurfacing
What Is Meant by Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure or a set of cosmetic procedures that are designed to uplift your facial skin, treating a wide range of skin concerns and issues. The result is youthful skin that boasts a smooth and firm texture, even skin tone, is hydrated and replenished, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Many people use facial rejuvenation treatments to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, brown spots, etc., and to reverse undesirable features such as scarring. Laser skin resurfacing can help take years off your appearance in a short period of time.
Here are several common skin issues that laser skin resurfacing can treat successfully:
Age spots and brown spots are common among older women. They are small, round, and dark areas that appear on your skin as you age. They are most commonly found in those who are above 50 years old but can occur in younger adults as well. They are referred to as brown spots because of their dark color.
Because these spots mostly appear on areas of the skin which are more exposed to sun, they are also sometimes referred to as sunspots. They are usually found on your face, your neck and shoulders, your arms, the back of your hands, and your upper back. They do not disappear or fade on their own if you don’t use any treatment.
Even though age spots/brown spots do not pose any risk for your health, they do indicate that your skin has been exposed to sun extensively and perceived as signs of aging. For these cosmetic reasons, many people choose to have them removed.
Another common skin issue that facial rejuvenation can treat is pigmentary concerns, such as uneven skin tone, birthmarks, etc. The causes of pigmentary concerns are varied and they can occur in anyone regardless of their age. While some people may have a birthmark they wish to remove, some may have a visible uneven skin tone as a result of accidents, injuries, lifestyle choices, or it may be environment-induced.
Pigmentary concerns are very common in the U.S. In fact, over 40 percent of the population struggle with one kind of pigmentary issue or another.
Although these skin issues may not pose any health risk, they can seriously impact your appearance and your self-image. Due to this, many people prefer to have them fixed so they can have a smooth, even, and glowing skin.
Laser treatment for acne scars aims to minimize the appearance of scars from old acne outbreaks. Laser skin resurfacing focuses light on the top layers of your skin to break up scar tissue. At the same time, the treatment encourages new, healthy skin cells below the thin, outer layer of your skin, to grow and replace the scar tissue. This drastically minimizes the appliance of pock marks, discoloration, and scarring left over from acne.
As you age, your skin changes texture over the years. When you were younger, you may have had smooth, firm, and supple skin that glows with a youthful appearance. But this skin texture is unfortunately not something permanent because you start to see visible changes as you get older.
Your skin texture is influenced by a number of internal and external factors such as hormones, exposure to sunlight, dryness, etc. Over time, these can cause your skin to become loose, rough or bumpy, and develop coarse wrinkles or thin, fine lines. All these make you appear older than you actually are, which is why many want to have them removed.
What is CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure designed to improve your skin’s overall tone, texture, and appearance. This treatment works by safely removing the thin outer layer of skin, the epidermis, and heats the underlying skin, the dermis. This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. As the epidermis heals and regrows, the treated area appears smoother and tighter.
Proudly offering Cool Peel treatment
CoolPeel is a state-of-the-art CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment that is designed to treat:
- Moderate-to-severe wrinkles and fine lines.
- Skin texture loss.
- Pigmentation and sun-spots.

Just like the powerful CO2 laser, CoolPeel technology offers the most-targeted skin resurfacing treatment, correcting the surface layers of your skin and exposing the healthy and fresh tissue underneath.
But CoolPeel takes CO2 laser skin resurfacing to the next level by offering greater comfort, faster results, and better skin health. Visit Lift Aesthetics for a CoolPeel treatment.
The CoolPeel procedure uses heat energy to break down the damaged cells located on the surface of your skin. These damaged cells – which cause spots, sagging & pigmentation – are replaced by younger and healthier skin cells.
The targeted heat will also stimulate the production of collagen, which will fill-up sagging skin and make your face appear fuller. This is also how enlarged pores become smaller, giving you a blemish-free appearance.
If you were wondering why this treatment was called “CoolPeel” when heat energy is being used, here’s the reason. This treatment is so refined and focused that it heats up only the targeted section of your skin. The laser pulses don’t spill over to other areas of your skin, keeping them cool always.
CoolPeel is performed using the state-of-the-art SmartXide Tetra CO2 by renowned laser manufacturer DEKA.
This is a pretty “cool” fractional CO2 laser that offers dermatologists the freedom to precisely choose the density, duration, and power of laser pulses. This laser has empowered our specialists at Lift Aesthetics to treat a wide range of clients. Whether it’s a millennial client seeking spot removal or an elderly client looking for wrinkle treatment, the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser can be customized to suit their exact dermatological needs and skin sensitivity.
One of the biggest benefits of the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser is that it can be safely used on sensitive areas of the face. This includes under the eyes, around the nose and, near the lips. The controls of the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser are on the handpiece and this enables our physicians at Lift Aesthetics to modify laser pulses mid-treatment. The unique “spray” mode ensures that the CoolPeel treatment is provided evenly to all areas of the face.
