Reveal Your Best Skin Yet

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to remove damaged skin layers and promote the growth of new, healthier skin cells. The laser beam penetrates the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and skin renewal. Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and uneven skin texture.

These treatments can be customized and combined to achieve your individual skin goals. Our premier medical spa, with locations in Los Angeles, Newport Beach, and San Diego, offers this safe treatment to improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

The Science Behind Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser beam to remove the outer layers of damaged skin cells, stimulating the body’s natural healing process to produce healthier skin cells. The Sciton JOULE technology emits high-energy pulses of light absorbed by water molecules in the skin.

This results in the vaporization of damaged skin cells, while the heat generated by the laser stimulates collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. The treatment is highly customizable, allowing for precise targeting of specific areas of concern.

Your Complete Laser Skin Resurfacing Experience

Preparing for laser skin resurfacing is easy; we’re here to guide you through the process. Before your treatment, you must avoid sun exposure, stop using certain skincare products, and inform us of any medical conditions or medications you take. We’ll provide detailed instructions to ensure you’re fully prepared for your treatment.

During your laser skin resurfacing session, we’ll cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Once your skin is numb, we’ll perform a customized treatment using the Sciton JOULE platform to precisely target the areas of concern. The procedure takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area, and you can expect to feel a mild sensation of heat or tingling.

Side Effects
At South Coast MedSpa, we take every precaution to ensure your laser skin resurfacing is as safe and comfortable as possible. While side effects are rare, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or sensitivity. These usually subside within a few days, and we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a quick and comfortable recovery.

After laser skin resurfacing, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and peeling for several days. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you can return to your regular activities within a few days. We’ll provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery, and our team will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

You can expect to see the results of your laser skin resurfacing within a few days to a week as your skin begins to heal and rejuvenate. The results can last several years, depending on your skincare regimen and lifestyle habits.

The number of treatments needed for optimal results varies depending on the individual’s skin concerns and goals. We’ll develop a customized treatment plan for you. Follow-up treatments may be recommended every few months or as needed to maintain results.
