Skin Resurfacing

When it comes to rejuvenating skin that is aging, damaged or unevenly textured, skin resurfacing is a minimally-invasive option with minimal recovery time. At Rejuva Aesthetics and Wellness Center, we use the latest in laser technology to help you achieve long-lasting smoother, softer skin.

Contact us today at our location in Barrington, Illinois to schedule a consultation and find out if skin resurfacing treatment is right for you.

What is Skin Resurfacing?

While other rejuvenation treatments involve invasive surgery or injections, skin resurfacing is laser-assisted and involves no incisions or needles. Utilizing advanced laser technology, a high-intensity, controlled beam of light removes treated areas one layer at a time.

Laser skin resurfacing stimulates the body’s natural healing response, producing new, healthy skin cells during the healing process. The treated areas are completely resurfaced, significantly improving the appearance of several skin conditions, including:

  • Acne and other light scarring
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Blotches on the skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark skin lesions
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

Skin resurfacing is a quick procedure that can be accommodated into any busy schedule, although full-face treatments can last longer. Different lasers may be used depending on your skin type and condition, and our medical team will ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Skin Resurfacing?

During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your overall health, medical history and cosmetic expectations and goals will be assessed in order to determine if laser-assisted skin resurfacing is the right course of treatment for you.

Men and women who have an infection in treated areas and those who are prone to cold sores or fever blisters may require further evaluation before treatment is approved.

What is the Recovery Like?

Treated areas may be bandaged for the first day and should be cleaned and moisturized regularly to avoid irritation and scabbing. Swelling, itchiness and redness akin to a sunburn are common and can often be controlled with pain relievers and elevating the treated areas at night.

About a week after treatment the skin will peel, revealing a fresh, undamaged layer underneath.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Your smoother, younger-looking skin can be maintained with exercising proper precautions in the sun and adopting a good skincare regimen. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results, and regular skin resurfacing treatment can also continue to improve your skin as it ages.
