What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

As we age, we lose volume in the face, and our skin loses its elasticity over time. The skin starts looking saggy, and wrinkles often begin to develop. Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute is proud to offer two different forms of laser skin resurfacing. Using Alma® technologies ClearLift™ by HarmonyXL Pro and Hybrid™ our team can improve your facial appearance in just minutes. These treatments are virtually painless and require little if any downtime, making them the first laser treatments for sensitive areas of the body, including the hands, neck, décolleté, and around the eyes. To see if this revolutionary procedure is right for you, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Pina Panchal or Dr. Linette Rivera at Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute. Our staff in Tampa, FL is completely dedicated to providing the highest possible level of patient care.

About Hybrid Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing with Hybrid at is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that uses both non-ablative and CO2 ablative laser technology. By combining both the CO2 and 1570nm lasers in one applicator, Hybrid laser treatments are beneficial in reducing unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and uneven skin texture. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is an ideal facial treatment for patients desiring clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Hybrid specifically allows for the customization of numerous variables, such as the depth of laser penetration, as well as the width of coagulation and density. Based on the condition of the patient's complexion, the laser may be adjusted accordingly. With precision and efficacy, Hybrid laser skin resurfacing treatments can take as little as 15 minutes to cover the area of the entire face. Drs. Panchal and Rivera are proud to offer this innovative treatment option to allow patients to experience more even, younger, brighter, and overall healthier skin.

HOW DOES LASER SKIN Resurfacing WORK?

Our technologies use powerful laser beams to penetrate the surface of the skin and stimulate cell turnover. The laser energy encourages new collagen production to improve skin imperfections, including wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. As new cells develop, patients will look naturally younger without experiencing painful side effects. Laser skin resurfacing is safe for most skin types, and our top-of-the-line laser provides better results with the least amount of downtime.

ClearLift, on the other hand, combines the laser energy of the non-ablative Yag with the Pixel Q Switch 1064 nm, making it the perfect duo when it comes to resurfacing and tightness of the skin. This technology works by gently resurfacing the skin with virtually no pain and no downtime. It helps reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. Most lasers are not indicated for use around the eyes. However, ClearLift can treat almost all areas of the face, including the lower eyelids, nasal folds, marionette lines, the neck, and even the hands. The treatment slowly remodels the skin over the course of several weeks and usually takes about 4 – 6 treatments before the final results are achieved.

What Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Resurfacing?

After only one appointment, some patients may start to see results. Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive procedure that usually takes less than 30 minutes. It can provide similar results with fewer side effects compared to other invasive or surgical anti-aging procedures. A cooling anesthetic can also be provided to alleviate any discomfort experienced during the treatment. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately following laser skin revitalization. Many patients notice their skin looking and feeling younger after the conclusion of the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Skin Resurfacing

What is the best type of laser skin resurfacing for me?
At Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute, our team can help you choose which laser resurfacing option is best for your needs and goals during your consultation. What treatment is best for you will depend on the condition of your skin, any skin issues, and how deep you want your treatment to go. How long you are willing to give your recovery may also be an important consideration when you create a treatment plan. When in doubt, it's better to start with a lighter treatment to see how you like your results and decide if you want something stronger for your second treatment.

How is laser skin resurfacing with Hybrid performed?
During the laser skin resurfacing procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the Hybrid laser handpiece glides over your skin, precisely targeting the specific surfaces for improvement. Both the ablative and non-ablative laser energy is administered within the same pulse onto the skin. This allows for shorter treatment times at our facility and reduces the risk of overtreating the area. Following your treatment, our team will provide all necessary aftercare instructions to ensure you achieve your optimal results.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
A member of our staff will give you tips on ways to speed skin healing following your laser resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is to not peel or pick your skin. This can cause long-term damage, like scars. You should skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We will suggest an ointment to help soothe treated areas.

How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the laser resurfacing method chosen for your procedure, you may need to wait several weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deeper treatments will provide results that last a long time but will require a longer recovery period. You should tell a member of our team about how frequently you want to come back for treatments so we can take this into account when recommending a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
