What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Injecting Confidence Aesthetic Medicine is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to remove damaged layers of surface skin. The treatment is great for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing skin blemishes, including pigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Sometimes referred to as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is ideal for patients who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Katie Guest or Heather McBryde Gilbert will customize the depth of your laser procedure based on your skin type and goals. Contact our office in Centennial, CO to schedule a consultation with our expert team.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is far more effective than over-the-counter treatments that use harsh chemicals or abrasive devices to remove the top layer of skin. Additionally, laser therapy can be used for a wide variety of skin concerns that make you feel self-conscious. Injecting Confidence Aesthetic Medicine offers the following benefits in Centennial:
- Clear away dead or damaged skin cells
- Diminish lines and other unwanted signs of aging
- Shrink enlarged pores
- Stimulate new collagen and elastin production
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Achieve a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance
- Natural-looking and long-lasting results
Who is a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for patients who are unhappy with their skin's health or appearance. If you see sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, or pigmentation, our innovative treatment can help correct these imperfections. Injecting Confidence Aesthetic Medicine can also manage scaly patches and similar texture issues. Laser skin resurfacing isn't recommended for anyone who has very dark skin, lesions, or active acne outbreaks. Additionally, it's important to understand that there is a recovery period associated with laser therapy. Some patients may require up to 2 – 3 weeks for their skin to normalize.
Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique
Prior to your laser skin resurfacing procedure in Centennial, CO, a local anesthetic will be applied to numb the treatment areas. During the procedure, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over your skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for improvement. You will feel heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser energy is designed to remove damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth. After your laser session, the skin will look pink, and there may be some swelling and irritation. These symptoms subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. The skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel off. It's vital to avoid picking at the skin during the recovery process to prevent scarring and to shield the treated area from sun exposure.
How Long Is Recovery After Laser Skin Resurfacing?
For milder resurfacing treatments, an ointment will be smoothed over the skin, and you can return home to recover. The skin may look red, and there may be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. For those who are getting a more intense resurfacing procedure, your recovery period will take longer. The treated areas will most likely be protected with dressings, and the swelling, burning, and irritation symptoms may be stronger. Pain medication can be prescribed to minimize these side effects. The recovery period associated with a deeper resurfacing session can last 2 – 3 weeks. All patients need to limit their sun exposure following their laser treatment and apply sun protection throughout the day. For all laser treatments, the treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away. It is vital to avoid picking at the skin during the recovery process to prevent scarring and protect your skin from sun exposure. After the peeling process has been completed, the treated skin will feel smoother while also appearing rejuvenated, clearer, and younger.
Injecting Confidence Aesthetic Medicine Reviews
Katie is amazing! I found her by using a Groupon a couple years ago and haven't looked back. I've been to so many places for botox and filler and she's a true artist. They are all not the same. Trust me when I say that Katie is very knowledgeable about the face and each person's structure. She's a perfectionist in her kraft. She measures and makes sure to do what's best for each client. I will never go to anyone but her again. I made that mistake by waiting till last minute and going somewhere else once. I've learned my lesson and you live and you learn. The salon is absolutely beautiful and always clean. Katie is a pure pleasure to be around and I don't trust anyone else with my face. Don't hesitate to go to her. She also provides other services such as laser treatments etc. That is my next venture and I wouldn't want anyone else but her to do it.
Heather is the best! She is a true perfectionist and truly cares about each client. I would highly recommend going to see her with all you skin care needs!
Both Katie and Heather are great! Very knowledgeable about all things skin care. I have seen excellent results with IPL facials and peels. I also look years younger with Botox. They never try to up sell you on anything but listen to your skincare goals and talk you through the best options. I would highly recommend them!

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
Laser skin resurfacing costs vary depending on the treatment type you choose. During your consultation, we will understand your skin issues and wants before explaining the different types of laser resurfacing available treatments. After this, we will help you decide on your resurfacing treatment and discuss costs. Injecting Confidence Aesthetic regularly runs treatment specials and discounted packages, so be sure to ask in your appointment.
What's the best type of laser skin resurfacing for me?
We will help you decide which laser resurfacing treatment is best for your needs and goals during your consultation. What treatment is best for you will depend on the health and condition of your skin, your skin problems, and how deep you want your treatment to go. How long you are willing to give your recovery might also be an important factor when you create a treatment plan. If you are in doubt, it is best to select a milder treatment to see how you like your results and adjust as needed for your next treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after a laser skin resurfacing treatment?
A member of our team will explain ways to help your skin heal after a laser treatment. The most important rule is do not pick or peel flaking skin. Doing this could lead to lasting damage like scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can recommend an ointment to help soothe and heal your skin.
Should I get laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or microneedling?
After listening to your skin problems, we will help you choose whether laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, or a chemical peel will achieve your goals. While all three rejuvenate the surface of the skin, each has its own benefits and drawbacks. In your consultation, we will discuss each choice and suggest your treatment plan.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the resurfacing options you choose for your treatment, you may need to wait several weeks or even months between appointments. Deeper laser treatments will provide longer-lasting results but will need more time for recovery. You should talk to us during your consult about how often you want to come back for treatments so we can take this into account when suggesting a treatment plan during your initial consultation.
