Laser Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing in South Florida

Smooth, radiant skin is one of the hallmarks of youth. As we age, we experience a constant loss of collagen and elastin. Our youthful skin is also damaged by the sun and smoking. The result may be discoloration, fine lines, and a dull or uneven skin surface that gives the appearance of age. Laser skin resurfacing in South Florida can help restore your skin and your confidence.

Dr. Robert Cooper performs laser resurfacing of the skin using Micro and Nano laser peels, Erbium with CO2 and Pro-Fractional™ lasers to restore a smoother, clearer, and more even skin appearance. Advanced laser technology allows Dr. Cooper to precisely and deliberately remove the outer layers of damaged skin, revealing the underlying skin, which is softer, smoother, and younger looking. In addition to reducing wrinkles and discoloration, this treatment can help with the removal of small veins, acne scars, and other imperfections. The process also stimulates the growth of new collagen, resulting in a tightening of the skin over time.

Laser skin resurfacing can involve specific areas of the face, as well as the neck, chest, back, arms and legs using the newest Pro-Fractional laser technology.

Treating areas other than the face only became an option in late 2008 and 2009 with the development of more advanced Fractional laser technologies. In some cases the treatment is so gentle that no anesthetic is needed. Topical and local anesthetics are an option for deeper laser treatments. Typically, patients who undergo laser skin peels or resurfacing may not experience visible skin changes initially, allowing them to return to normal activities immediately, while others may be pink for one to seven days. However, one should allow 2 weeks for recovery after the more aggressive treatments. Back to Top
