Do you have skin texture issues?

There are many reasons why people develop issues with skin texture or tone. Cell turnover slows down over time, and we produce less collagen – a protein that provides firmness and elasticity. This increases the formation of fine lines and creases on the face.

Acne can also cause scarring and uneven skin. Even if you no longer suffer from blemishes or breakouts, acne scars remain around areas around the cheeks and mid-face. Some examples include ice pick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars.

UV damage is another common cause of rough texture. Prolonged exposure to sun rays or tanning beds damages skin cells and causes premature aging. Your skin may feel rough, dry, or leathery to the touch.

How laser skin resurfacing helps

Laser skin resurfacing uses short but powerful pulses of concentrated light to remove dead or damaged cells. Heat from the laser also encourages collagen production that continues to improve your complexion over the following weeks and months. Essential Aesthetics & Laser uses the Alma Hybrid™, a technology that employs non-ablative and CO2 ablative energy.

Pairing these two forms of energy results in less downtime for patients and fewer side effects. Patients in Charlotte, NC report excellent results with laser skin resurfacing, including a significant reduction in the appearance of skin concerns.

What to expect during laser resurfacing sessions

Laser skin resurfacing takes up to 45 minutes to complete depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Some patients are given a topical anesthetic to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. You will likely experience some redness and swelling afterward, but these side effects are mild and temporary.

We recommend 1 – 2 laser sessions depending on the severity of your skin concerns to produce the best results. We may ask patients to wait several weeks before scheduling a second session since their skin needs time to recover.

Is laser resurfacing safe?

Laser resurfacing is considered a safe cosmetic procedure when performed by a certified professional. Lori Alessandrini has helped countless individuals with texture issues or rough skin in general. Our team knows how to properly operate the Alma Hybrid so patients can relax and feel confident about their laser skin resurfacing results.
