What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing with the industry-leading Lutronic LaseMD Ultra at Pearce Plastic Surgery is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses a high-powered thulium laser to treat age spots, sun damage, melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The Lutronic Ultra is a non-ablative fractional laser that creates microchannels in the skin to stimulate cell rejuvenation and collagen production, resulting in a rejuvenated, smoother, clearer complexion. The treatment is excellent for addressing facial lines and wrinkles and diminishing skin blemishes, including pigmentation, acne scars, and more. Sometimes referred to as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is an effective treatment for people who want a clearer, softer, more youthful complexion with little downtime. Your treatment will be customized according to the needs of your skin. Our team is happy to discuss any of your concerns or questions during a consultation at our practice in Austin, TX.

How Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?

The Lutronic ULTRA™ handpiece is safe for all skin types and can even treat the decollete and hands to diminish signs of aging. Treatments are completed in a comfortable private room. We begin by applying a numbing cream to the treatment areas. Once the laser treatment begins, you will feel some heat and tingling as the laser is passed over the skin. After the treatment, you will notice visible redness that typically lasts less than 24 hours. Over the next week, your skin will have a dry sandpaper-like texture which fades with time as the skin exfoliates. After this exfoliation, you are left with fresher, clearer skin. Unlike more intensive procedures, you can return to normal activities within two days, rather than 5 to 7 days like other similar skin treatments.

How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Laser skin resurfacing costs vary based on the treatment type you get. In your initial consultation, Dr. Paul Pearce will ask about your skin issues and wants before reviewing the different types of laser resurfacing available treatments. Then, he will help you decide on your resurfacing method and discuss costs. Pearce Plastic Surgery often runs treatment specials and packages, so ask for more information in your consultation.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?

In your consultation, Dr. Pearce will help you decide which resurfacing treatment suits your needs and goals. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, your skin concerns, and how deep you want your treatment to go. The length of recovery time might also be a deciding factor when choosing your treatment type. When unsure, it is best to try a lighter treatment, assess your outcomes, and decide if you want something stronger for your next treatment.

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

Dr. Pearce or a team member will talk to you about how you can help your skin heal after a resurfacing treatment. The top rule is don't pick or peel flaking skin. This can lead to long-term damage like scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We can suggest cream to help soothe and heal treated areas.

Dr Pearce and his staff have been so beyond amazing to work with! As someone who gets pretty squeamish around needles, they have made me feel so relaxed and at ease through it all. Dr Pearce and Amy were so incredible and Informative during my breast augmentation consultation. They answered my 100 questions and helped put my mind at ease. Getting surgery is one of my biggest fears And I know I’m choosing the right spot! Last of all, the front desk staff is sooo welcoming and sweet, even if I’m running a little bit late they have been so understanding! I’ll definitely be a life long patient!

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.

Dr. Pearce was on call at Round Rock Medical Center at a very difficult moment for my family. My son experienced a very bad motorcycle accident on Sept. 12, 2022 and Dr. Pearce operated on him to repair the cosmetic results of severe head trauma. He has operated on my son 3 times, the last one being 2 days ago. He did miraculous work in restoring my son’s head shape and eye socket to normal. He worked for 6.5 hours in surgery this time to fix some abnormalities and my son looks great. We are so grateful to Dr. Pearce!
