Revitalize Your Skin with JOULE

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses advanced JOULE laser technology to treat a range of skin concerns. The treatment works by removing damaged outer layers of skin, promoting new collagen growth, and improving skin texture and tone. It effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. Laser skin resurfacing is safe and minimally invasive, making it a popular choice for those looking to rejuvenate their skin without surgery.

What Is The Science Behind Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Our Profractional laser resurfacing in Newport Beach works by using a focused beam of light to remove the outer layers of skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and promoting new, healthy skin cells. The Sciton JOULE platform delivers precise and controlled energy to the skin, which causes the outer layers to peel away. This process triggers the production of new collagen and elastin, which helps improve the skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.

The JOULE system by Sciton is a groundbreaking technology designed to deliver a wide range of energy-based treatments, including laser skin resurfacing.

Your Complete Laser Skin Resurfacing Experience

Before undergoing laser skin resurfacing, you should prepare yourself to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential risks. Avoid sun exposure, stop using certain skincare products, inform your provider of any medications you take and arrange a ride home after the procedure. Your provider will give you more specific instructions based on your individual needs.

During your laser skin resurfacing session, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort. They will use the Sciton JOULE system to deliver precise and controlled energy to your skin, removing the outer layers and stimulating collagen production. The treatment takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated.

Side Effects
After laser skin resurfacing, you may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, and peeling. These side effects are temporary and resolve within a few days to a week. You may sometimes experience hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, but this is rare. Your provider will discuss the potential risks and side effects before your treatment of laser skin resurfacing in Newport Beach. 

After laser skin resurfacing, you will experience some downtime and need to follow a specific recovery process. This may include avoiding sun exposure, applying a protective ointment to the treated areas, and avoiding certain skincare products. You may experience redness and peeling a few days to a week after the treatment. Your provider will provide you with specific instructions for your recovery process.

The results of laser skin resurfacing will appear within a few days after the treatment and will continue to improve over the following weeks as your skin heals. The results are long-lasting, but how long they last depends on your skincare routine and sun exposure.

The number of treatments you need for optimal results will depend on your skin concerns and goals. Most patients see significant improvement after just one treatment, while others may benefit from a series of treatments. Follow-up treatments may be recommended every few years to maintain the results of your laser skin resurfacing in Newport Beach.

How much does laser skin resurfacing cost in Newport Beach?

The cost of laser skin resurfacing in Newport Beach varies based on factors such as the treatment area, the number of sessions required, and your specific concerns. Please schedule a consultation with our experts for an accurate quote based on your specific needs.

What is the best age for laser skin resurfacing?

There isn’t a specific age that is universally considered best for laser skin resurfacing, as the need for treatment depends on individual skin conditions rather than age. However, many people seek treatments in their 30s to 50s to address early signs of aging, sun damage, and skin irregularities.

How painful is laser resurfacing?

The pain level experienced during laser resurfacing can vary. Most patients report a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin, along with warmth or mild discomfort. Topical anesthetics can be used to minimize pain. Post-procedure, most patients might experience redness and a sunburn-like feeling, which typically subsides within a few days.

How many sessions does laser resurfacing take?

The number of sessions required for optimal results from laser resurfacing varies based on the individual’s skin condition and desired outcomes. Most patients undergo 1 to 3 sessions spaced several weeks apart, but more severe skin issues might require additional treatments.

Who is not a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

Individuals with active acne, very dark skin tones, or certain medical conditions may not be good candidates for laser skin resurfacing. Those who are pregnant, have a history of keloid scarring, or are currently taking certain medications should also avoid this procedure. Our skincare specialists can examine your skin type and concerns to determine candidacy.
