About Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach, Virginia, now offers laser skin resurfacing using the Pearl Laser by Cutera. The procedure is used to treat fine lines, spots from sun damage and uneven skin. As a result, skin is refreshed and rejuvenated for a more youthful look. The laser is used to remove damaged skin from the top layer (Epidermis), and form a protective layer, which will peel back in 3-4 days, revealing new, refreshed skin. In addition to the resurfacing of damaged skin, Cutera Pearl also encourages the body to naturally produce collagen through a deep heating process in order to further fill in facial lines.
Because Cutera Pearl treats the entire face at once, generally only 1-2 treatments are required to achieve the desired results. In addition, due to the fact that only the top of the epidermis is removed, patients experience only a short amount of downtime.
During the procedure, patients usually feel short pinches that are easily tolerated.
