Overview

Laser skin resurfacing is quickly becoming one of the most popular nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments on the market today. This advanced treatment uses laser technology to improve fine lines, and lightens skin irregularities such as blemishes, sun spots, discoloration and  uneven skin texture. New Orleans plastic surgeons, Dr. David A. Jansen and Dr. Ravi Tandon, use laser skin resurfacing to also remove certain skin lesions. With precision and control, the laser beam hones in and targets localized, trouble areas on the face. Dr. Jansen and Dr. Tandon use the advanced Laser Genesis system for patients desiring a clearer complexion and brighter glow. The Genesis system treats skin damage layer-by-layer with outstanding results.

Procedure Technique

Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin and heats the underlying layer to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. During this process, damaged skin cells on the outer layer are stripped away, leaving a new layer of healthy skin to grow. If small sections of the face are being addressed, the procedure will typically take about 45 minutes. A full-face treatment, or larger areas of skin, can take up to 2 hours. Multiple sessions are sometimes needed to attain the desired results.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

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.
