Take Years Off Your Appearance with Minimally Invasive Laser Skin Resurfacing

Take Years Off Your Appearance with Minimally Invasive Laser Skin Resurfacing

It's no secret that your skin can reveal your age. As you get older, the skin naturally loses elasticity and bounces. As a result, it develops fine lines and wrinkles. But what if you could take the years off without cosmetic surgery?

With laser skin resurfacing, you can! Some people turn to invasive surgical procedures to reverse all the common signs of aging, but laser skin resurfacing achieves similar results without downtime.

Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, and our Fort Worth, Texas team specialize in laser resurfacing to restore a more youthful look and revitalize your confidence. Here's how it works.

How laser skin resurfacing works

Dr. Gracia is a laser skin resurfacing expert. He uses the SmartXide DOT Laser®, a laser technology that rejuvenates the skin by removing damaged outer layers and stimulating collagen production.

He customizes treatment to address your unique skin concerns, gently and safely removing damage without damaging healthy skin underneath. He can target many of the most common issues in one session, including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and sun damage.

Laser resurfacing could be a great way to revitalize your complexion and take years off your appearance, and Dr. Gracia can help you decide if it's right for you. He and our team offer comprehensive skin consultations to review your concerns and discuss your goals.

If you choose laser skin resurfacing, preparing your skin in advance is important. We may recommend avoiding certain skincare products, like retinoids and exfoliants, for several weeks beforehand to minimize your risk of skin irritation. You'll also need to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect your skin before treatment and during healing.

The benefits of minimally invasive laser resurfacing

The SmartXide DOT Laser targets damage on the outermost layers of your skin and reveals fresher, smoother skin underneath. A few of the best benefits of treatment are:

Minimal downtime

One reason laser skin resurfacing is so popular is that it's minimally invasive, which means minimal downtime. Unlike surgical procedures, which require weeks of recovery, laser skin resurfacing typically only requires a few days of downtime.

You may experience some redness, swelling, and peeling, but these side effects are typically mild. We can teach you how to manage side effects with over-the-counter pain relievers and topical treatments.

Customizable treatment

Laser skin resurfacing is highly customizable and can address multiple specific skin concerns simultaneously. It's a versatile treatment option, and Dr. Gracia can adjust the intensity and depth of the laser to target specific areas of your skin.

Collagen production

Laser skin resurfacing doesn't just remove damaged outer layers of skin. Treatment also stimulates collagen production, essential for smooth, bouncy skin.

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. But by stimulating collagen production, laser skin resurfacing can improve the texture and tone of your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

No anesthesia

Another benefit of minimally invasive laser skin resurfacing is that it doesn't require general anesthesia. We apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment to ensure you remain comfortable, and it wears off shortly after your procedure is done.

Topical anesthetics don't carry the same risks as general anesthesia, so that you can avoid side effects like nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.

Long-lasting results

Last but not least, laser skin resurfacing delivers long-lasting results. The smoother, even-toned, youthful-looking skin you achieve after treatment can last for years with the proper care.

Dr. Gracia and our team can give you tips for extending your results, including using high-quality skincare products and sunscreen.
