What Is Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a treatment that revitalizes the skin by gently removing the outermost layer, encouraging the natural regeneration process to reveal smoother, healthier-looking skin beneath. This process addresses various skin imperfections, such as age spots, fine lines, and uneven texture, by harnessing specific techniques that are carefully selected based on your skin’s unique needs.

What Are the Benefits of Skin Resurfacing?

Our skin resurfacing treatments can also meet the needs of patients with textured skin who want to achieve smoother skin. We can design a customized treatment plan that addresses acne scars and other textual irregularities to help you achieve your treatment goals safely.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Improved Product Absorption: After undergoing resurfacing skin treatments, the skin becomes more receptive to skincare products. This enhanced absorption capacity means that moisturizers, serums, and other treatments penetrate more deeply and effectively.
  • Clearer Skin: Skin resurfacing treatments contribute to a clearer complexion by addressing the root causes of acne and other skin blemishes. By removing debris and dead skin cells that clog pores, it prevents future breakouts and leaves the skin looking more radiant and even-toned.
  • Smoother and Softer Skin: One of the immediate benefits of skin resurfacing treatment is the noticeable improvement in skin texture. By eliminating rough patches, reducing texture irregularities, and softening the skin, this treatment reveals a smoother and more supple skin surface.

What Can Skin Resurfacing Treat?

Textured Skin

Skin resurfacing treatments are effective at smoothing out textured skin, which can result from a variety of factors, including aging and environmental damage. By removing the outer layers of skin, these treatments encourage the body to produce new, healthy cells for a more even and soft skin surface. The process is designed to refine the skin’s texture, making it appear more uniform and revitalized.

Acne Scars

For those troubled by the lasting marks of acne, skin resurfacing offers a solution to reduce the appearance of acne scars. This technique gently targets the damaged skin areas, promoting healing and the growth of new, unblemished skin. It is a proactive approach to diminish the visibility of scars and improve skin texture.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Skin resurfacing can diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment enhances skin elasticity and stimulates collagen production, which is crucial for maintaining youthful skin. The result is a smoother, firmer skin surface that visibly reduces the signs of aging.


Addressing uneven skin tones and dark spots, skin resurfacing is adept at correcting hyperpigmentation. Through targeted removal of the hyperpigmented layers of skin, it encourages the emergence of a more even-toned complexion. This method is particularly beneficial for those looking to correct sun damage, age spots, and other forms of discoloration.

Dull and Dry Skin

Revitalizing dull and dry skin is another strength of skin resurfacing. By exfoliating the dead and dry outer layer of skin, it reveals the healthier, more radiant skin beneath. This not only improves the skin’s texture and tone but also enhances its ability to retain moisture, giving it a refreshed and hydrated appearance.

Our Skin Resurfacing Treatment Options

Facial Treatments

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is one of the best skin resurfacing treatments because it dissolves the top layer of the skin to improve skin health, texture, and tone. The natural aging process causes the skin to lose elasticity and brightness. At the same time, an accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface can cause an irregular texture and a dull appearance. A chemical peel can revive dull or lifeless-looking skin and promote a smooth, vibrant complexion.

Facial skin resurfacing with chemical peels takes 30 to 45 minutes and is effective for those looking for treatments for textured skin as they can reduce the appearance of acne scars, lines, and wrinkles and even help clear and prevent acne. Patients who want smoother skin can benefit from a customized chemical peel, as can those who want clearer skin or are prone to breakouts, localized hyperpigmentation, melasma, or oily skin.

Fractional Ablative Laser Treatments

Our fractional ablative laser treatments can restore a youthful appearance by effectively resurfacing the skin. We use the Cynosure Icon 2940 laser to perform these 45- to 60-minute treatments, which can significantly improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

The laser skin resurfacing device creates multiple micro-thermal heat zones in the skin to vaporize the outer layer, which forces the body to respond with a healing reaction that accelerates skin cell regeneration and stimulates collagen production. Patients won’t have to worry about significant downtime after their treatment and can expect visible results within the weeks that follow an initial treatment.

CO2 Laser

The CO2 laser resurfaces the skin during a 45- to 60-minute treatment process. It uses a high-energy beam of laser light to remove the superficial layers of the skin and stimulate natural collagen production. This skin resurfacing laser can address the most common imperfections that detract from the complexion, including scars, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and textural irregularities.

We use either local anesthesia or sedation before beginning the resurfacing skin treatments to promote patient comfort. After the treatment is over, patients will need to follow some specific aftercare instructions until the skin fully heals, which can take anywhere from one to two weeks. The body will respond by increasing collagen production in the weeks that follow the treatment, and patients will see continuous improvement in their skin as it does.

Fractional Non-Ablative Laser Treatments

Our fractional non-ablative laser treatments resurface the skin and can meet the needs of patients who want smoother skin but don’t want to plan around any downtime. These gentler skin resurfacing treatments take 30 to 60 minutes. Our device can treat the most common skin imperfections, including photo-aging, wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, and more.

Hollywood Spectra

The Hollywood Spectra laser treatment can treat various skin conditions and imperfections. We can use the device’s laser technology to resurface the skin and improve the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, textural irregularities, and more. Typical treatments take one hour, and most patients need one to three treatments to achieve their goals.

Patients with more advanced skin conditions and imperfections may need up to six of these facial skin resurfacing sessions for best results. There’s little to no downtime post-treatment, and the entire experience is comfortable and doesn’t require any anesthesia.

LaseMD Ultra

We also offer Lutronic’s LaseMD Ultra laser, which can resurface the skin to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, large pores, lines, wrinkles, and more. Typical treatments take 40 to 60 minutes, and patients will need to follow some specific aftercare instructions for three to five days post-treatment.

The laser skin resurfacing device uses specific wavelengths to deliver a customizable treatment to resurface the skin and is also one of the most effective treatments for textured skin. Patients will see the best results after completing the recommended number of sessions.

IPL Photofacials

Our IPL treatment uses broadband light to resurface the skin and is one of the best skin resurfacing treatments for treating discoloration, lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. The IPL device stimulates collagen production to promote skin cell regeneration and renewal.

Treatments take 15 to 30 minutes, and results are most visible after completing the recommended sessions. Most patients need two to five treatments with four weeks between each and one to three yearly maintenance sessions for optimal results.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling with the Genius RF and Profound RF devices combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to enhance skin resurfacing outcomes. This treatment involves tiny needles that create microchannels in the skin, which prompt the natural healing process. At the same time, radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The result is a more effective reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, offering a firmer, smoother complexion.

Skincare Products

NewEra’s skincare line includes products specially formulated for brightening hyperpigmented skin, an essential complement to skin resurfacing treatments. These products contain active ingredients that target dark spots and uneven skin tone, promoting a more uniform complexion. By incorporating these brightening products into your daily skincare routine, you can enhance the results of skin resurfacing treatments to keep your skin luminous and even-toned.

Body Treatments

We offer all the same skin resurfacing treatments for the body as we do for the face, with the additional option of Profound RF treatments to reduce cellulite. Cellulite is a common complaint among patients who want smoother skin because it creates a visible texture irregularity.

We can use the Profound RF device to target cellulite in the most common problem areas on the body. The device uses microneedles and controlled radiofrequency heat energy to tighten the skin and improve texture. The treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes and will lift and tighten the skin by targeting cellulite at its source.
