Introduction to Laser Skin Resurfacing

Aging is inevitable but there are still nonsurgical ways to reduce an aged appearance. At Renu Medispa in Eagle, ID, we deliver successful results of Laser Skin Resurfacing through a variety of options, as well as provide our patients with the knowledge to improve their results and enjoy a better lifestyle with smoother, rejuvenated skin. To learn a little more about the options we provide, please enjoy the information below.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

At Renu Medispa in Eagle, Idaho, we offer both ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing as effective treatment options using the most cutting-edge laser technology for laser skin resurfacing. Our laser specialists are on top of the cutting edge of laser technology with over 20 years of laser experience and training. Our founder Tawni Weaver was the only non-physician on the governing board who created the treatment and practice guidelines around the safe use of laser treatments.

We believe that clients need to educate themselves on the specifics of any treatment, and while this is especially true with a laser skin resurfacing procedure due to a lot of misinformation in the industry, it’s essential to know what to ask of your laser provider.

Laser skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for deep, difficult-to-treat lines and creases around the eyes, mouth, and face.

Ablative vs. Non-Ablative Resurfacing

Each one of these treatments will target different skin conditions, but thanks to our laser that uses both ablative and non-ablative technology, we are also able to provide both treatments at once. Ablative lasers work on the top layers of skin, and non-ablative lasers work by heating the underlying layers of skin that trigger the production of collagen and elastin, providing a wide variety of benefits for those of any age.

Ablative resurfacing

Ablative lasers deliver an intense wavelength of light that removes the outer layers of aged or damaged skin. This tricks the body into thinking there is an injury to the treated area, which triggers the healing response to produce new tissue. With these advancements, you can look as young and vital as you feel with a fractional laser treatment that is FDA-approved to reduce unwanted lines on your face, including around your eyes and mouth.

Non-Ablative resurfacing

At Renu, our 1540 fractional laser is one of the best tools for treating rough skin textures, scars, discolorations, and wrinkles. This non-ablative resurfacing laser delivers heated light in an array of narrow, focused “microbeams” to create columns of coagulation within the skin. These columns initiate a natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue, resulting in improved skin appearance.

What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Our Boise and Eagle, ID Laser Skin Resurfacing patients have seen the following benefits from their treatments:

  • Laser skin resurfacing can rebuild your complexion.
  • Deep tone and texture improvement.
  • Minimal risk of complications.
  • Smoother skin without drastic facial changes.

Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing procedures?

Whether you’re in the Boise or Eagle, ID area, we have a very diverse group of patients that make excellent candidates. Laser Skin Resurfacing is an excellent solution for removing wrinkles, scars, blemishes, or even hyperpigmentation, and can even repair the damage to your skin caused by numerous occurrences, much like the ones below. 

  • Acne or other facial scars
  • Brown spots or blotchy skin coloring
  • Certain benign skin growths
  • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids and deep crows feet
  • Vertical wrinkles around the mouth
  • Wrinkled or sun-damaged skin on the face

At Renu Medispa, we believe the best patients are those who have realistic expectations for their results, maintain a positive attitude throughout their treatment and recovery, and are committed to maintaining a good skincare routine.

What’s the first Step?

If you are looking to treat a particular area of skin for either a smoother or more youthful look, your first step is to contact Renu Medispa and schedule your one-on-one consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with a provider who will create your custom treatment plan. 

They will examine the targeted area, ask you questions about your lifestyle and medical history, and address any concerns or questions you may have about the treatment. Once the two of you are satisfied with the direction of your procedure plan, you will be able to schedule your first session with our Guest Relations Specialist who will also provide you with some instructions on how to make the most out of your experience.

What to Expect on the Day of Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment

Our laser technician will use either an ablative or non-ablative laser to treat the skin. Laser resurfacing treatment uses laser light to deliver energy deep into the skin, generating new skin that is smooth and even.

This is a single treatment procedure that can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery

You may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours after treatment. The skin may often have a pinkish tone for 5-7 days. Generally, you can receive treatment and go back to work or other activities without any recovery time. Our laser specialists can customize a treatment plan that includes a recovery time you can manage.

With our “easier on the skin” fractional non-ablative process, the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, allowing for a quick healing process. Some people notice positive changes in the appearance of their skin within a few days.

How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost in Boise, ID?

The cost of Laser Skin Resurfacing in Boise and Eagle, ID varies on a number of factors, primarily the number of treatments needed and the extent of the service.
