We offer laser skin resurfacing at The Spa Clinic, which serves the residents of Washington DC, Arlington, Alexandria, Gainesville and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Laser skin resurfacing is a laser treatment performed to improve the appearance of the skin. It is used to correct issues arising from aging and sun exposure and is also effective for improving texture, looseness, wrinkles, and scarring. Laser skin resurfacing cannot stop the effects of aging but can be used to provide a rejuvenated look for tired, aged appearances.
Good candidates for laser skin resurfacing are those who suffer from the following conditions:
The laser skin resurfacing treatment uses laser therapy to apply laser energy to the skin. This treatment creates microscopic holes across the skin to induce tightening and collagen growth. Two different techniques can be used to achieve laser skin rejuvenation: fractional rejuvenation and fractional repair.
Laser skin resurfacing procedures are usually performed quickly in a matter of minutes, though the length of the treatment will vary based on the size of the area being treated. The number of treatments necessary to achieve the desired results will also vary. Dr. Arzadon will provide a recommendation for your treatment plan during your consultation.
After undergoing laser skin resurfacing, patients may experience redness and swelling of the treated skin. These effects can last for a few hours or a few days. While patients are typically able to return to work the same day as the procedure, some patients choose to rest at home for a period of a few days.
The Spa Clinic uses the PixelPerfect™ system for laser skin resurfacing and correcting sun damage, age spots, lines and wrinkles. The treatment is also effective for pore reduction and acne scars. PixelPerfect™ gives you the same benefits as microdermabrasion, but in fewer treatments. In fact, you would need seven to 10 microdermabrasion treatments to get the results of one PixelPerfect™ treatment.
We offer competitive pricing for all of our services performed at the clinic. At your consultation we will provide you with an estimate to fit your budget. The Spa Clinic works with CareCredit® to provide financing options for patients. Within a few hours, you can be pre-approved for your cosmetic procedure.
