Laser Skin Resurfacing in Fredericksburg, VA

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate dead and damaged skin cell layers. The procedure is performed to correct facial wrinkles and lines and diminish skin blemishes, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Sometimes called a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is ideal for patients desiring clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the skin's condition, the laser can be customized accordingly. There is little recovery time required for most laser skin resurfacing treatments. During your consultation, any questions or concerns can be discussed with Fredericksburg, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki.

How Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?

Throughout the process, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over your skin, targeting the needed rejuvenation sections. You will feel the heat of the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser energy is designed to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

On the day of the surgery, Dr. Aflaki’s expertise shone through as he performed the tummy tuck and breast augmentation with incredible precision.

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

There are several factors to consider when choosing which type of laser skin resurfacing treatment is best for you. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for anyone who is unsatisfied with their overall complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, a laser skin resurfacing procedure may help improve these cosmetic flaws. In addition, this treatment works wonders if you have rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing isn't suggested if you have very dark skin tones or active acne. In addition, it is important to understand that there is a recovery period needed after laser treatments. Certain patients, based on the condition of their skin, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks to recover.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?

A team member can help you choose which laser resurfacing option will best meet your needs and goals during your initial consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health and condition of your skin, any skin issues, and how deep you want your treatment to go. The length of recovery time may also be a deciding consideration when choosing your treatment type. If you are in doubt, it's better to try a milder treatment then assess your results and adjust as needed for your next appointment.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

A member of our team will talk to you about ways to speed skin healing following your laser resurfacing treatment. The top rule is don't peel or pick flaking skin. Doing this could create long-term damage including scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We will recommend an ointment to help soothe treated areas.

How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Laser resurfacing costs are based on the treatment you get. During your consultation, a team member will ask about your concerns and goals before reviewing the types of laser resurfacing available treatments. Then, a team member can help you select your resurfacing treatment and talk to you about costs. Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg often runs treatment specials and discounted packages, so ask about current specials in your consultation.
