Laser Skin Resurfacing

Renu MedSpa

Medical Spa located in Des Plaines, IL

In laser skin resurfacing treatments, the entire surface area of the skin is treated.The laser beam is scanned across the treatment area and precisely removes a layer of skin. Treatments can range from shallow (great for eliminating fine lines, sun damage, and tired looking skin) to deep (frequently used to improve skin tone and texture and eliminates deep wrinkles). The body’s natural response will replace the old, damaged skin that was removed with a fresh healthy layer of skin, leaving it more youthful looking and radiant!

As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, causing it to wrinkle, develop sun spots and look tired. The ProFractional-XC™ procedure can reverse these effects and restore a healthy glow back into the skin. A laser beam (2940 nm wavelength) will be delivered through a computer controlled device that automatically scans the area of skin being treated. Technicians can control the ablation and coagulation depths from light to deep treatments.

In ProFractional resurfacing treatments, the laser removes pinpoint columns of skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This approach allows the laser to penetrate very deeply into the skin for effective collagen remodeling, while the surrounding intact tissue promotes rapid healing. Therefore, giving excellent resurfacing results with minimal down time.
