What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a skin-rejuvenating procedure that uses a laser to improve the appearance of your skin while treating wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, surgical scars, rosacea, broken blood vessels and more.

The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregularities on the surface of your skin. By resurfacing your skin, this advanced laser technology stimulates growth of new healthy skin cells from the inside out.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Options

Koniver Aesthetics offers advanced laser skin resurfacing in Charleston with several premier technologies. During your consultation, your practitioner will help you determine which treatment is best suited to your goals and lifestyle. Treatment options include:

CoolPeel™ – advanced skin rejuvenation for use anywhere on the body – uses brand-new CO2 laser technology, the best ablative laser available, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish sun damage, minimize pores, all while improving skin texture with little to no downtime.

The gold standard in the treatment of wrinkles, signs of aging, skin texture, and other skin imperfections, Tetra CO2 Laser is the only laser technology that can perform CoolPeel™ procedures with its unique pulse control. The high-peak power and short pulse delivers a fractional ablative treatment without thermal (heat) damage to the surrounding tissue. No thermal damage means downtime is highly controlled and minimized while impressive, superficial skin-resurfacing results are delivered.

Clear + Brilliant® goes a step beyond skincare and chemical peels to make your skin glow. Whether you want to maintain the younger look of your skin or prevent minor early signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant® can be a smart option for you. Clear + Brilliant® works by creating hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces damaged skin with healthy looking tissue and yields younger-looking skin.

Denave is a laser designed to treat redness, flushing, and broken capillaries. It is a 585nm wavelength and is the new gold standard for management of cosmetic vascular conditions like Rosacea, Poikiloderma, hemangiomas, and redness associated with sun-damaged skin.

Add Exosomes to Your Treatment

We’re proud to offer exosomes as an addition to your laser skin resurfacing treatment! Enjoy maximum results with exosomes that help your skin heal itself even further following your laser treatment. Exosomes are a regenerative nanotechnology that repairs damaged cells and are carrier agents that transmit intracellular information.

Embracing the addition of exosomes to your treatment unlocks the potential of growth factors, peptides, cytokines, and other regenerative elements. As the laser treatment works on your skin, exosomes expedite the healing process and amplify the regenerative benefits, offering remarkable improvements in skin quality. With the support of exosomes, your skin not only heals quicker but also sustains longer-lasting results, ensuring enhanced efficacy for addressing concerns such as aging signs, dullness, texture issues, scarring, and more. This holistic approach guarantees comprehensive care for your skin, leaving it rejuvenated and radiant.

What to Expect

Before treatment, your practitioner will review the benefits and possible side effects. Your skin will be cleansed, and topical numbing cream may be applied depending on the procedure. Then your practitioner will direct the laser onto your skin, controlling strength and depth precisely based on your treatment plan. After the treatment, post procedure products will be applied to the skin.

During the treatment, comfort levels vary from person to person. At Koniver Aesthetics, your comfort level is a priority for us. We have found the PRO-NOX™ Nitrous-Oxide (50% Oxygen and 50% Nitrous Oxide mixture) delivery system to be successful in helping relieve anxiety and pain in our patients. PRO-NOX™ is patient-controlled inhaled analgesia which takes effect in seconds, offering immediate easing of pain and anxiety. Since it is patient controlled, you can respond to your pain and anxiety when you need it. And it has the benefit of being a short procedure; PRO-NOX™ clears from the body in minutes.

Treatment and recovery times vary based on the technology chosen, the intensity of the treatment, and your individual healing characteristics. Some patients can resume normal activities immediately, however, if your skin is sensitive, you may experience a few days of redness and puffiness post-treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Guidelines

Pre-Treatment Instructions:

You may not be treated within 3 months of being on Accutane.

Avoid prolonged sun exposure.

Do not use medications that are photosensitizing at least 72 hours before treatment.

Avoid products with active ingredients for 3-5 days before treatment.

You may not be treated if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Post-Treatment Instructions:

Avoid exercise for 24 hours.

Immediately after the procedure, your skin will be red and feel sunburnt. Over the next few hours, the redness will subside.

In 24-48 hours, the skin will have a “sandpaper” texture that will slough off in 5-7 days.

Use gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen.

Do not manually exfoliate the skin.

You may resume your skin care products with active ingredients after 5-7 days.

Results of our Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments

After treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. Results will continue to improve over the next several weeks and can last for months or years depending on age, skin condition and how you protect your skin.

Effects will be visible after a single session, but you may need three to six sessions spaced about one month apart to achieve optimal results.

Disclaimer: Every patient is different, and results may vary due to a number of factors. During your consultation, we will discuss with you the results you can expect and create a custom treatment plan that’s right for you.

Laser Skin Resurfacing: FAQs

Can I combine laser resurfacing with other procedures?
Each procedure has its own benefits. Laser resurfacing can be complementary to other cosmetic procedures, such as dermal fillers or neurotoxins. Talk to us at your consultation about how to maximize the benefits with other procedures. For example, we love combining the Cool Peel laser with our RF Microneedling treatment Virtue. This treatment combo is perfect for stimulating deeper neocollagenesis (with the Virtue) which assists in healing the surface damage from the Cool Peel. Similarly, we love using the Diamond Glow facial prior to laser treatments as they increase hydration in the skin.

Are there any issues that would make it a bad time for this procedure?
This procedure may not be suitable for people with sunburn or who plan an outdoor activity immediately following treatment. Also, people with an active herpes outbreak should avoid the procedure.

At what age is it appropriate to have facial laser resurfacing?
Whatever your age, sun exposure, environmental conditions, and lifestyle can contribute to lackluster skin. You can prolong your youthful looks, address early aging signs, and correct pigmentation problems or acne scarring with this procedure.
