What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Dermatology Center of Dallas is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of light to eliminate damaged skin layer by layer. This treatment is performed to reduce facial lines and wrinkles and improve skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing uses fractional laser technology by Fraxel® to make tiny holes in the deep layers of the skin to provide a softer, younger-looking complexion. Depending on the condition of the skin, the treatment may be customized for the best results. Any questions or concerns can be discussed with our team during your consultation at our office in Dallas, TX.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
"As a registered nurse, I know what quality care means and looks like, and Dr. Foshee and the staff at the Dermatology Center of Dallas exceeded my expectations. From the time I checked in until the time everyone was warm and welcoming. In the past I saw another group of dermatologists who just didnt meet my expectations. Dr. Foshee was delightful, knew exactly what I needed, and I left with an even better skin care routine than I came in with. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!"- A.K. / Google / Apr 16, 2021
What to Expect with Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you see skin damaged by the sun, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness, hyperpigmentation, or texture concerns, a laser skin resurfacing treatment may be helpful. Throughout the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the laser handpiece glides over the skin, directly targeting the designated surfaces for rejuvenation. You may feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser works by removing damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen growth. After the treatment, your skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away, and it is important not to pick at your skin as it heals. Once the peeling process has been finished, the treated skin should feel softer while looking clearer and rejuvenated.
Laser Skin Resurfacing with Fraxel FAQ
Is laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel painful?
Fraxel should not be very painful for the vast majority of patients. You may feel a mild stinging sensation followed by heat from the laser and a cooling element designed to chill the heat. You might also experience some redness and swelling at the treatment site for a few days following resurfacing, but this should go away quickly.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
A member of the Dermatology Center of Dallas team will discuss ways to speed up skin healing after the laser treatment. The most important rule is to not peel or pick flaking skin. This could lead to long-term damage like scars. You also should skip all hair removal techniques in the treatment area, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can suggest creams to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the laser resurfacing options you and the Dermatology Center of Dallas team select for your treatment, you may need to wait several weeks or even months between treatments. You should talk to our Dallas, TX team about how frequently you want to return for appointments so they can recommend the ideal interval in your initial consultation.
