What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment that uses controlled light energy to eliminate wrinkles and blemishes. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we have achieved incredible results with fractional laser facial rejuvenation using the Palomar StarLux 500 platform. We are one of the only centers south of San Antonio to offer the Palomar StarLux 500 platform with the 1540nm non-ablative fractional laser to treat scars, stretch marks, and provide facial resurfacing for the improvement of fine wrinkles and improve skin tone. The Palomar 1540nm non-ablative fractional laser provides skin resurfacing and tightening with minimal downtime and high effectiveness.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

The Palomar 1540nm non-ablative fractional laser sends light in an assortment of high precision microbeams deep into the skin. These microbeams create deep, narrow columns of tissue micro-burns that penetrate below the epidermis and into the dermis, while keeping the surrounding tissue from being damaged. The main idea behind this therapy is to reactivate your own collagen production and skin cell regeneration.

Why Use the Palomar Laser for Skin Resurfacing?

The Palomar 1540nm fractional non-ablative laser emits microbeams that penetrate up to 1 mm deeper than competing devices. By creating deeper columns of coagulated tissue, a more natural healing process is initiated that speeds up the formation of healthy, new tissue to fill in the damaged treatment areas. During the treatment, the top layer of the skin is maintained. This helps minimize downtime, speed up recovery, and protects the tissue from infection during the healing process. The Palomar 1540nm fractional laser also offers more energy per microbeam compared to other devices. With only two or three passes, the hand piece reaches high-powered, deeply penetrating microbeams to effectively make corrections. This treatment can be done on all skin types.

What Can I Expect from Treatment?

Laser skin resurfacing is performed with the aid of a topical anesthetic for ideal comfort. Treatment using the Palomar 1540nm fractional laser improves the look of large pores, surgical scars, stretch marks, acne scars, and fine lines. We typically recommend that patients have three treatments to achieve the cosmetic results they are looking for. These treatments are separated by approximately six weeks to allow the tissue ample time to heal.

How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

To determine the cost of your laser skin resurfacing treatment, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.
