Laser Resurfacing and Microdermabrasion are two types of minimally invasive procedures that are used to rejuvenate skin and to reduce the appearance of scars, discolorations, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Microdermabrasion involves using an abrasive instrument to sand the skin and remove the outer layer. This exfoliating process helps to shrink black heads and large pores, minimize age spots, improve hyperpigmentation, reduce stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles, and to treat acne and acne scars. Microdermabrasion thickens the skin’s collagen which helps the skin to look younger. The cost of a microdermabrasion session ranges between $130 to $140.
Laser resurfacing involves using pulsating laser beams to target areas of the skin to be treated. With this technique, plastic surgeons are able to use precision in treating the damaged areas of skin. This process removes outer layers of skin, one layer at a time, on targeted areas only. This rejuvenating process can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, acne and chickenpox scars, improve sun damaged skin, lighten liver spots and birthmarks, eliminate warts, shrink large pores, and improve the overall complexion. The cost of a laser skin resurfacing treatment ranges from $1,000 to $2,400, depending on the type of procedure.
Ciaobella Plastic Surgery uses a SmartXide Laser to perform laser resurfacing procedures to clients. SmartXide uses a dot resurfacing technique, which is less painful and allows for quicker recovery times. Also called Dot Therapy, this treatment causes the skin to rapidly tighten and produce more collagen. It also reduces blemishes and scarring. Additionally, this minimally invasive technique improves skin texture, uneven pigmentation, stretch marks, and melasma. Dot Therapy can be customized to suit the needs of each patient. The results of SmartXide are said to be superior to skin peels and microdermabrasion procedures. Smartxide laser surgery is the smart choice when considering types of minimally invasive surgery for the face.
