How Can You Have Flawless Skin?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to remove layers of damaged skin to reveal fresher, smoother skin underneath. This treatment is effective for treating a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. At South Coast MedSpa, we use the advanced Sciton JOULE laser system to deliver precise and targeted energy to the skin, promoting collagen production and improving skin texture and tone to help you achieve a more youthful, glowing complexion.

The Science Behind Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing works by using a laser to deliver precise and controlled energy to the skin. The laser energy is absorbed by the water and pigment in the skin, causing the targeted tissue to vaporize and be removed. This controlled removal of the damaged skin stimulates the production of new collagen, which promotes smoother, more youthful-looking skin. The Sciton JOULE system used at South Coast MedSpa allows for customizable settings to target specific concerns, while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue.

The Sciton JOULE Laser System

At South Coast MedSpa, we use the Sciton JOULE laser system for laser skin resurfacing. JOULE is a versatile platform that utilizes a range of laser modalities to provide customizable and precise treatments. The JOULE’s erbium laser technology provides gentle and precise resurfacing to promote collagen production and skin rejuvenation. Additionally, the JOULE’s tunable resurfacing feature allows for varying levels of skin resurfacing to achieve a customized result based on the individual’s skin concerns.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

How do I prepare for my laser skin resurfacing?

To prepare for your laser skin resurfacing, you should avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least four weeks prior to your appointment. You should also avoid using products that contain retinoids, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid for several days before your treatment. Our team will provide you with specific instructions to help you prepare for your treatment and achieve the best possible results.

What is the treatment like?

During laser skin resurfacing, you will be comfortably seated while our medical professional uses the Sciton JOULE laser system to target specific areas of your skin. You may feel a warming sensation during the treatment, but most patients do not experience any discomfort. The length of your session will depend on the size and number of areas being treated.

Are there any side effects to laser skin resurfacing?

After laser skin resurfacing, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and peeling in the treated area. These side effects are normal and usually subside within a week. In rare cases, blistering, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation may occur. We provide you with specific aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of side effects and promote optimal healing.

What's the recovery like?

The downtime and recovery process after ProFractional laser skin resurfacing in Los Angeles will depend on the extent of your treatment. You can expect redness, swelling, and peeling for a few days to a week after your treatment. You should avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen as directed by our medical professionals. You can typically resume normal activities within a few days.

What results can I expect from laser skin resurfacing?

You may begin to see results from your laser skin resurfacing within a week or two after your session. Your skin will continue to improve over several weeks as new collagen is produced. Results can last for several months to years, depending on your skin type and individual factors.

How frequently should I get treatments?

The number of treatments needed for optimal results from laser skin resurfacing varies depending on your skin concerns and goals. Some individuals may achieve their desired results with one treatment, while others may require multiple sessions. Follow-up treatments may be recommended every few months to maintain optimal results.

I had a laser treatment here last year and got great results. I had a lot of compliments from family & friends on my skin looking fresher. I’m getting another treatment this month. Also it was not that invasive at all, it just felt like a temporary sun burn. I was expecting much worse so was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it was. Staff is also very nice and it’s a very clean office. I highly recommend trying out one of their lasers!

I have been going to South Coast Med Spa for a couple of months now as I have signed up for two of the laser acne scar removal.

I have notice a reduction in my acne scarring and my complexion now just looks much more even and healthy...
