Achieve Glowy, Healthy Skin With the Help of Cosmetic Laser Centers™ in Pittsburgh

If you are tired of drugstore skincare products not living up to the hype, laser skin surfacing may be the choice for you.

At Cosmetic Laser Centers, we’re proud to offer Fraxel® DUAL, a one-of-a-kind laser skin resurfacing technique that really works and can provide you with the skin you’ve been dreaming of. Here’s how to enhance and change up your look with our laser skin resurfacing treatments in Pittsburgh.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Laser skin resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation process that uses a laser to refine the skin’s appearance and other concerns. It can be done with either an ablative or non-ablative laser.

Ablative laser resurfacing removes the skin’s outer layer and heats the underlying skin to boost collagen production, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. Because ablative lasers are invasive and completely remove the skin’s outer layer, these treatments require a longer downtime.

Non-ablative lasers use less energy, but still promote collagen growth by producing several deep microscopic treatment zones to heat the treated area. And because these lasers only treat a fraction of tissue at a time, the surrounding tissue is left untouched, making for a quicker healing process. Fraxel® DUAL treatments improve your skin from the inside out by promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Non-ablative lasers aren’t invasive, so they typically have a shorter downtime.

What Can it Treat?

Skin resurfacing is an effective and sought-after procedure that can restore your skin and treat a number of skin concerns. Skin resurfacing can improve signs of:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Age spots/sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

No matter what you’re looking to improve, skin resurfacing is a great way to treat damaged skin and let your confidence shine.

Our Skin Resurfacing Services at Cosmetic Laser Centers

At Cosmetic Laser Centers, we provide skin resurfacing services, including Fraxel® laser treatments. The Fraxel® DUAL laser is a fractional, non-ablative tool that leaves the surrounding skin untouched as it works to improve a variety of skin concerns.

Fraxel® DUAL is unlike any other skin resurfacing tool. Using precise, tiny laser columns, it resurfaces damaged skin, boosts collagen production, and promotes the regrowth of healthy skin cells leaving you with smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.

Fraxel DUAL® laser resurfacing is available in two treatment modes, each varying in their wavelength. The 1550nm is recommended to treat fine lines and wrinkles and can improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars. The 1927nm targets superficial concerns and works to help improve the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin.

Most patients need four to six skin resurfacing treatments to reach their aesthetic goals. These treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart to allow the treated area to properly heal. Depending on your skin and desired results, you may need more or less treatments. At your consultation, your medical provider will create a treatment plan that is just for you and will work with you to determine how many treatments will be necessary.

The Fraxel® DUAL laser is non-ablative, so it requires a much shorter downtime compared to ablative laser resurfacing. Patients can expect minimal downtime, typically about one week. Some patients even return to their daily routine the day following their treatment.
