What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Do?


Share This Post

If you’re at all familiar with the world of cosmetic treatments and skin rejuvenation, you’ve probably come across laser treatments. SkinPros at Stile Aesthetics stays on top of the latest techniques and technologies to offer our patients the best in aesthetics, including laser skin resurfacing. So, what does this treatment do? 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated beams of light to remove damaged or aged skin layers and stimulate collagen production. This results in smoother, rejuvenated skin, effectively reducing wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation concerns.

SkinPros at Stile Aesthetics, use the Candela and Venus Viva™ technologies for skin rejuvenation. The Candela platforms and the Venus Viva™ devices use nanofractional radiofrequency energy instead of a laser to resurface the skin. Like laser resurfacing treatments, Venus Viva™ uses fractional ablation to remove damaged surface skin and heats the dermis to stimulate collagen production. Dr. Stile uses this technology in addition to laser devices for superior results and safety. 

What Skin Conditions Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Improve?

Collagen is an essential component of your skin’s structure. It keeps your skin smooth, firm, and youthful, but it naturally decreases as you age and can be broken down by sun damage. By increasing collagen production, skin resurfacing treatments can improve signs of aging, pigmentation issues, and overall skin health. 

Here are some of the complexion concerns Dr. Stile may recommend the Candela andVenus Viva™ platforms  for:

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage and dark spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Hyperpigmentation and melasma

How Do Laser Treatments Work?

Laser skin resurfacing treatments are non-invasive and typically quick and convenient. Venus Viva™ treatments at Stile Aesthetics take 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Since it’s a less ablative alternative to laser treatments, Venus Viva™ involves minimal discomfort and side effects. You may feel warmth and a prickling or snapping sensation as we move the device over your skin.

The Venus Viva™ device uses patented micro-pins to create controlled micro-injuries on the surface of your skin. In response, your body clears away the top layer of dull, damaged skin cells to leave you with a healthy new complexion. At the same time, these micro-injuries allow radiofrequency energy to penetrate the dermis, stimulating collagen production. This process is similar to laser skin resurfacing but gives your provider optimal control and precision.


Am I a Good Candidate for Venus Viva™ Skin Resurfacing?

We use Venus Viva™ for skin resurfacing instead of a laser for its superior results and proven safety. Venus Viva™ is safe for all skin types and tones, unlike many laser treatments. This makes it an ideal treatment for almost anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin. During a detailed consultation, Dr. Stile will evaluate your skin and goals to help you determine if this is the right treatment for you.
