The skin is your body’s primary armor, constantly bombarded with direct sunlight, bacteria, injuries, pollutants, and toxins. Laser skin resurfacing essentially polishes your skin and reverses weeks of skin damage.
Zap away your skin imperfections and concerns
Your skin is an armor that protects your internal organs from harsh UV rays, sunlight, bacteria, germs, dirt, debris, and environmental toxins. Over time, the skin may develop numerous signs of damage and imperfection, such as wrinkles, age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, textural irregularities, and dull complexion. Laser skin resurfacing allows us to exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin and stimulate natural collagen production to reverse the signs of skin damage.
Laser skin resurfacing corrects the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Sagging skin
- Acne scars
- Facial scars
- Textural irregularities
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Other skin concerns
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that involves channeling highly personalized wavelengths of light energy into the skin. Ablative laser energy removes the uppermost layers of the damaged skin to reveal smoother, softer, and more youthful skin underneath.
And non-ablative laser energy penetrates into the deep dermis to stimulate natural collagen production, which makes your skin look firm and taut. We personalize your laser skin resurfacing journey to improve skin tone and texture with minimal downtime.
Your laser skin resurfacing consultation with Dr. Hicks
Dr. Hicks offers a thorough consultation to her patients. She will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your skin concerns and goals, analyze your skin type, and create a profile for your skin.

She personalizes the treatment to improve your skin tone and texture with minimal downtime and side effects.
How is laser skin resurfacing performed?
During your laser skin resurfacing session, the medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and ask you to put on protective eyeglasses. The laser device is calibrated according to your skin type, skin tone, and conditions, following which it’s moved over your skin.
The device generates laser energy that penetrates your skin, generating a slightly warm and stinging sensation. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes, following which a soothing gel is applied to your face.
