Skin Resurfacing Treatments at Laronn Clinique are used to treat skin conditions such as: *
Contour Microlaser Peel is new developed technology that allows the physician to precisely choose the depth of the treatment as well as the percentage of treated skin. These factors will determine the amount of correction as well as the down time following the procedure. This treatment is very helpful for improving age related skin damages such as lines, wrinkles, discoloration, scars, and the removal of skin growth.*
The cost for the Laser Skin resurfacing procedure depends on the areas being treated. Certainly, the more treatment area involved, the more the procedure will cost. Typically, skin resurfacing treatments start at $185 and deeper resurfacing treatments start at $580. For a pricing quote, please call Laronn Clinique or set up a complimentary consultation.
Here at Laronn Clinique, Dr. Laronn takes all measures to ensure that her patients are comfortable. For laser skin resurfacing procedures, topical anesthetics are applied prior to the treatment in order to alleviate any discomfort that could occur. For deeper resurfacing treatments, Dr. Laronn will perform nerve blocks in the areas being treated to ensure the patient is comfortable. For patients concerned with discomfort, call our office to find out more information about options available.
Most people return to their regular activities 2- 5 days after skin resurfacing treatments, but, this will vary from patient to patient. The deeper resurfacing treatments will occasionally require a few more days of downtime.
Fractional Therapy laser modality uses energy to create micro ablated channels deep in the dermal tissue, covering only a fraction of the total surface area and leaving the surrounding skin intact for faster healing and increase comfort. The wound-healing process produces fibroblasts that generate new collagen, plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections.
*The results of each treatment vary and are dependent on each individual case.
Facial laser resurfacing has become a popular option for patients seeking to enhance the appearance of their skin. Unlike traditional laser peels, where effective results are associated with long periods of downtime, fractional technology, offers a short-downtime solution for treating wrinkles, scars, pigment, and toned and texture of the skin.*
How Fractional & Profractional Laser Works
Fractional Therapy laser modality uses energy to create micro ablated channels deep in the dermal tissue, covering only a fraction of the total surface area and leaving the surrounding skin intact for faster healing and increase comfort. The wound-healing process produces fibroblasts that generate new collagen, plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections. *
Fractional Therapy allows the physician to select from a wide spectrum of treatment depths and densities, depending on the indications treated, the desired outcome and the patient’s tolerance of downtime. Use superficial depth treatments for pigment, medium depth for fine lines and wrinkles, and deep depth for deep scars, acne scars, or deep wrinkles. *
First generation fractional devices use non-ablative laser energy, leaving columns of necrotic debris in the tissue. They require multiple treatments and are not very effective on wrinkles or deep scars.
Profractional-XC Tunable Profractional Solution is taking fractionated resurfacing to the next level for dramatic improvement in wrinkles, scars, pigment, tone, and texture. Sciton’s unique Tunable Fractional technology allows the use of any ablative fractional technology thereby optimizing treatment depth, are coverage, and the ratio of ablation and thermal zone to each patient’s condition, skin type, desired outcome, and tolerance of downtime.
New generation fractional devices use ablative wavelengths- Er: YAG, CO2, or Er: YSGG. The results are more dramatic, but limited by the characteristics of the wavelength used.
The ablative CO2 laser is absorbed by your tissues regardless of pigmentation or vein condition because its target of interaction is water. The depth of penetration is a function of its wavelength and can be customized to the problem being treated by changing energy; the number of passes and by using super pulsed or ultra-pulsed technology.
Ablative lasers are the very first lasers used in cosmetic laser dermatology. The ablative CO 2or Erbium YAG laser beam energy is absorbed by your tissues regardless of pigmentation or vein condition because its target of interaction is water. The depth of penetration is a function of its wavelength and can be customized to the problem being treated by changing energy; the number of passes and by using super pulsed or ultra-pulsed technology.
Vaporizing your top layer of skin removes all damage to it while heating the deeper layer to stimulate collagen production resulting in a smoother, cleared and firmer skin.* This procedure is indicated for advanced skin damage with fine and deep wrinkling, discolorations, and sagging. The procedure requires about 7–10 days recovery time but the rewards are worth it.
For the aggressive correction with the CO2 resurfacing laser the one time cost range from $1200–$3200 depending on the size of the area treated. In this case you will be able to return to work in 1–2 weeks.
