You wouldn’t trust your face to just anyone with a laser, would you?

Skin Resurfacing

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

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Clients need to educate themselves on the specifics of any treatment. This is especially true with a laser skin resurfacing procedure as there is a lot of misinformation in the industry. With laser technology improving rapidly, it’s essential to know what to ask of your laser provider.

Skin Resurfacing before & After

At our MediSpa in Eagle, Idaho, we offer both ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing treatments. Each of these treatments targets different skin conditions. We can also provide both treatments at once with our Halo X laser that uses both ablative and non-ablative technology. Ablative lasers work on the top layers of skin, and non-ablative lasers work by heating up the underlying layers of skin that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. This provides 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 faces, 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.

The Benefits of Skin Resurfacing

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

A recovery from laser skin resurfacing can be as little as four days without the pain or side effects associated with more invasive procedures. Best of all, laser skin resurfacing lets you look like you — only better. You still have the same beautiful face but with fewer lines and wrinkles without any unnatural facial changes. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for periorbital (eye) wrinkles, crow’s feet, perioral (mouth) wrinkles, frown lines, lipstick lines, smoker’s lines, and facial wrinkles.

Laser Wrinkle Treatment FAQ’s

What areas are appropriate for wrinkle treatment?

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

How does it work?

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

How long does it take?

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

What is the recovery time?

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 a 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 many treatments will I need?

Most people see results with only one treatment session. However, clients usually see the best results with a series of treatments at 3-6 week intervals to achieve your desired results. Contact a laser specialist at Renu MediSpa for more information regarding treatment and expected outcomes depending on your skin’s specific needs.
