Laser Skin Treatment & Resurfacing

Welcome to the Utah Cosmetic Surgery website, please upgrade your Flash Plugin and enable JavaScript.

Fine lines and deep wrinkles, along with many other skin problems, can be treated with laser skin resurfacing, bringing fresh healthy skin cells to the surface and boosting collagen production. Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that can produce dramatic results without a lengthy recovery period. It is ideal if you want a more aggressive wrinkle treatment than the Fotofacial, do not have sagging skin, and are not ready to undergo a surgical procedure.

Laser skin resurfacing can correct the appearance of:

  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles throughout the face
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage

Laser skin resurfacing can also be used to reduce the signs of aging on your neck, chest, and hands for a more complete look.

How it Works

The outer layer of dead skin cells is removed, stimulating the production of new cells and collagen production. Your skin is rejuvenated as the old, dull cells are removed, wrinkles are reduced, and healthy youthful skin replaces the old, dead cells.

Laser skin resurfacing is a great stand alone procedure, but it can be used to compliment other procedures, including surgical procedures such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.

Ideal Candidate

Laser skin resurfacing is appropriate if you:

  • Have sun damage
  • Have dull skin
  • Have fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, or scars

As a stand alone procedure it will help you the most if you do not have sagging skin. If sagging skin is an issue for you, considering Refirme Skin Tightening in place of or in addition to laser skin resurfacing.

Patients with darker skin tones should consider the gentle Renew Fotofacial RF as an alternative procedure.

After listening loosely to your concerns and interests in cosmetic procedures, and evaluating your skin, Utah Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Haupt will recommend the procedure or procedures that will be the most likely to produce the results you desire and give you beautiful, healthy skin.
