Are you looking to improve the appearance and health of your skin? Laser skin resurfacing treatments addresses a multitude of skin concerns, including a fan favorite – it stimulates collagen growth to tighten and restore the skin. Thanks to laser resurfacing treatments, we can diminish wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, acne scars and uneven skin texture. At North Dallas Dermatology Associates, we offer four laser resurfacing treatments to help our patients achieve healthy, glowing skin.
When is the Best Time to Have Laser Resurfacing Done?
Laser skin resurfacing can be performed any time of the year. However, many specialists recommend treatment during the fall and winter. This is because post-treatment can lead to hypersensitivity in one’s skin, so it is important to avoid extreme sun exposure. To maintain results, we recommend always applying SPF30 or higher to the face and neck post-treatment. It is important to remember that the sun is the number one cause of skin aging.
4 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Smartxide DOT Laser
The Smartxide Dot Laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser used to improve the appearance of aging skin. This unique technology combines the power and results of the traditional CO2 laser, with a fraction of the downtime. DOT therapy is a pattern of tiny dots of laser energy applied to the skin. The skin then begins the process of healing. Collagen growth is restored, allowing skin tightening and skin texture to improve.

CoolPeel is a unique treatment that comfortably delivers the benefits of traditional CO2 laser treatment. This treatment focuses on the superficial layer of the skin. CoolPeel reduces sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars: revealing healthier-looking skin. CoolPeel is unique for its ability to stimulate collagen production with fractional ablative treatment with minimal downtime.

ClearLift is a highly effective skin rejuvenation treatment known as the “lunchtime laser”. With little to no downtime, ClearLift can remove years of aging from the face and neck in under 30 minutes. It is suitable for targeted areas such as the neck, crow’s feet, and other aging areas. This treatment is a Botox alternative for those who have medical concerns that prevent the use of injectables.

How Many Treatments Do I Need To Generate Results?
While one laser treatment will show noticeable results, more than often patients need multiple treatments to reach their skin goals. Laser skin resurfacing treatments generally require a series of 3 to 4 treatments to achieve optimal results. For patients with significant skin complaints, including severe acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, your provider will discuss the number of recommended treatments specific to your needs.
