What is Skin Resurfacing?

Hyperpigmentation can plague the young and old alike. Due to even normal sun exposure, hormones, and other factors, your skin can demonstrate dark patches or become reddened from residual acne lesions. Doctor Nimtz can treat various problems of uneven skin tone, using the Fotona laser. We are the only office in central Kentucky to offer this type of laser, which enables Dr. Nimtz to take numerous approaches to skin problems, including the Fotona4D® noninvasive laser face lifting procedure and dermabrasion. We also offer facial Cutera® laser peels of various depths:

  • Light
  • Moderate
  • Deep

Schedule a consultation to determine which laser treatment is best suited for your skin needs. Skin resurfacing requires the use of light beams that are either scattered at a very high rate or pulsed which minimizes the damage that can otherwise result from the heat. Dr. Nimtz uses only extremely advanced laser technology to precisely remove the outer layers of your skin which may be damaged due to acne, scarring, sun damage or hyperpigmentation. These outer layers of damaged skin are then removed, and bright, fresh new skin underneath is revealed, so your skin is clearer and looks brighter as blemishes are reduced or eliminated altogether.

What are the Benefits of Skin Resurfacing?

If you have noticed that your skin is no longer as smooth and healthy as you would like it to be, then it may be time to consider a cutting-edge and highly effective treatment known as skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing has many benefits, including that it results in clean, clear skin, it boosts your self-confidence, and it eliminates awkward social anxiety related to your skin’s damaged appearance. Much of this damage occurs in the outer layers of the skin, where laser resurfacing is most effective. Removing the outer layer of damaged skin reveals the underlying new skin, which is smoother, softer, clearer, and younger looking. Laser resurfacing can be used to treat sun damage, wrinkles, and skin laxity caused by aging. The laser light used for this procedure also stimulates collagen growth deep within the skin, thereby improving your skin’s structure and elasticity.

Who is a Candidate for Skin Resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation technique that uses lasers to sand away the outer layers of your skin, revealing smoother and healthier-looking layers just below the surface. Laser skin resurfacing may be used to treat your entire face, or perhaps only specific portions of it. The Cutera® laser skin resurfacing technology allows your treatment to result in some of the most amazing anti-aging results possible. Dr. Nimtz carefully controls the level of energy emitted to precisely remove the old skin with minimal damage to other tissue.

What is the Procedure for Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced procedure which uses lasers to improve the tone and texture of your skin and remove unwanted spots, scars, and other blemishes without harming your surrounding skin. Laser resurfacing is known as an ablative laser procedure because the outermost layer of skin is removed. The laser beam is directed toward the targeted skin, where it vaporizes the outer layer instantly. Laser resurfacing is sought by both women and men who want to reverse signs of aging, scarring, sun damage, and other blemishes on the skin. The laser resurfacing treatment takes between 30 minutes and two hours depending on your treatment goals. There is no bleeding and only minimal trauma to surrounding tissues. Your face will be cleansed thoroughly at the outset, and your skin will be numbed with a local anesthetic. After treatment, an ointment will be applied to your skin for about a week, and you may have to wear a bandage to cover your skin for the first few days.

How Much Does Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The price of your skin resurfacing procedure will vary depending on your unique treatment needs as well as other related factors. After you meet with Dr. Nimtz, we will identify exactly what your skin resurfacing procedure will cost, at which time we will give you an all-inclusive quote. We do offer CareCredit® as a financing option, and our office also accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover as well as cash or personal checks.
