What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation technique that uses laser energy to eliminate cosmetic concerns while encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin. The laser energy exfoliates skin damage, loose skin, discolored skin, and more to reveal the radiant and healthy skin beneath. As an added benefit, the laser treatment triggers collagen production in the body, which helps to make the skin firmer, softer, and more voluminous. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to address the following skin concerns:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Loose skin
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone
For laser skin resurfacing treatments, we use either the Genesis laser system or the ClearLift treatment with the Harmony XL Pro laser system.

How is Skin Resurfacing Treatment Performed?
The laser skin resurfacing treatments we offer at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics are quite comfortable compared to traditional laser treatments. Most patients do not need any kind of anesthetic for the treatment. During the treatment, laser energy is delivered to the desired areas of the face or body. This process stimulates collagen production and targets discoloration or other areas of concern. A typical laser skin resurfacing treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, making it a great “lunch time” treatment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
After a laser skin resurfacing treatment, patients may notice minor improvements regarding age spots or other discoloration in the skin. Over the following weeks, patients will notice an improvement in skin laxity, tone, and texture as collagen begins to take effect in the body. Patients will begin to notice the full results of their treatment about a month or two after their treatment, but we typically recommend a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.
Is There Downtime After Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
Our laser skin resurfacing options at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics require absolutely no downtime. Although patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treated areas, they will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. Any side effects typically fade within a few days.
