What is Laser Resurfacing?

At our practice in Charlotte Laser Resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes concentrated laser energy to remove damaged outer layers of skin. This stimulates collagen production, promoting smoother texture, improved tone, and a more refreshed appearance. At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte, we offer several advanced Sciton laser systems to target specific concerns while maintaining your natural beauty:

Sciton HALO

This customizable treatment combines multiple wavelengths to address a range of imperfections. It effectively tackles fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, uneven skin tone and texture, and enlarged pores. Halo offers a comfortable experience with minimal downtime, making it ideal for those seeking a subtle rejuvenation.

Sciton Contour TRL

For deeper wrinkles, acne scars, and severe sun damage, Sciton Contour TRL delivers more dramatic results. While Contour TRL has a slightly longer downtime than Halo, with redness in the treatment area persisting for 8 to 12 days, the results are transformative, and we always strive to preserve your inherent beauty.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

While you'll see an initial improvement shortly after, expect the full results of laser resurfacing to blossom over three to six months as your skin ramps up collagen production. Downtime can range from one to three weeks, depending on the treatment depth. During this time, redness, swelling, and flaking are common. Avoid strenuous activity and direct sunlight. To maintain your youthful glow, prioritize a gentle skincare routine with SPF 30+ sunscreen, avoid picking and scratching, and give saunas and harsh products a pass until fully healed. Long-term maintenance involves consistent sun protection, a healthy lifestyle, and follow-up treatments like Sciton BBL or Botox to enhance further and prolong your results.
