Overview

To improve cosmetic blemishes on the face, like fine lines, acne, rough texture, dull skin tone, large pores, and more, non-surgical laser skin resurfacing treatments can quickly refresh the skin. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville, FL, laser skin resurfacing is performed with the advanced Clear + Brilliant system. Clear + Brilliant effectively treats the skin for healthier skin that looks younger and more radiant. Using focused, precision energy, Clear + Brilliant stimulates the skin and prompts the body's natural healing response for increased nourishment and skin health. For enhanced results, consider scheduling a series of Clear + Brilliant treatments or combining laser skin resurfacing with another non-surgical treatment at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery.

Procedure Technique

Clear and Brilliant is a mild laser modality that gently induces a safe and predictable result. Using heat, this laser causes very minor “injuries” on the skin’s surface. This phenomenon induces our natural healing cascade, which in turn remodels and produces collagen. During treatment, your medical aesthetician will glide a small hand piece over sections of your face. This quick treatment is comfortable  with very minimal down time.

During/After the Procedure

Your practitioner may choose to apply topical numbing cream for your comfort. You will feel slight warmth and tingling during the treatment, which takes about 20 minutes. Immediately after the treatment you will have some redness and a warm feeling on the skin; that should resolve over the next few hours. Over the next few days, your skin may be pink with a bit of swelling. It may also appear a bit darker with a slight sandpaper-like feel. You may have some flaking 3-7 days after treatment. Your newly revealed skin will be smoother and fresher. It is important to avoid extreme heat and direct sun exposure for several days after your treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Can it Damage Your Skin?

This procedure was created to improve the appearance of the skin. However, an inexperienced individual can damage the skin unintentionally. It is important to find a laser skin resurfacing professional who understands how the various laser technologies interact with different skin types. If done correctly, the results can be effective and long-lasting.

Lasting Results?

While laser skin resurfacing does not stop the aging process, the results can still be long-lasting. As patients continue to age, they may consider additional treatments. 

Ablative or Non-Ablative?

While one is not better than the other, they have varying degrees of intensity and recovery. Both techniques provide nice results. During your initial consultation, we will discuss which is best for you. Factors include the patient’s aesthetic goals, skin type and how much downtime can be tolerated.
