Different options are available with skin rejuvenation and resurfacing, including laser, light and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels, as well as other non-ablative methods. Dr. Jimerson will choose the procedure that’s best for you based on your condition and skin color and type. This will reduce the risk of additional pigmentation, or having a loss of pigmentation that produces whitening of the skin.
Laser resurfacing can treat the entire face for fine lines and wrinkles, or Dr. Jimerson can treat specific areas, like around the eyes or on the upper lip.
Anesthesia is not required. If you have pigmentation disorders including sun and age spots, laser and light treatments, or specially formulated chemical peels will be used.
If you have acne scars and similar conditions, then laser and fractional resurfacing, or mechanical resurfacing like dermabrasion or dermaplaning will be used. It all depends on what other skin conditions you may have.
In order to achieve the optimal results, repeated treatments are required. A series of treatments will be scheduled.
