The state of a person’s skin can affect how the world sees them. Glowing, vibrant skin might make a person seem happier, more alert, and ready to face the day, while dull, acne-spotted, wrinkled or scarred skin may make a person seem tired, unhappy or even unapproachable.
What does your skin say about you?
Thanks to a new technology called laser resurfacing, Sacramento’s Mercy Medical Group can help get your skin in tip-top shape, allowing the world to see the real you.
Laser resurfacing uses short, concentrated, pulsating beams of to reduce wrinkles, scars and blemishes. This targeted approach allows the damaged skin to be removed in a very precise manner, one layer at a time, and gives your specialist an enhanced level of control, permitting extreme precision, especially in delicate areas.
As the device is moved over the treatment area, you will notice a flashing light, an audible tone and a mild sensation on your skin. There are two types of laser resurfacing Sacramento’s Mercy Medical Group offers: pulsed light treatment and fractional laser treatment.
Pulsed Light Treatment
The pulsed light system uses utilizes specialized hand pieces that filter light from different parts of the spectrum, allowing treatment to be focused on the area of need. It uses various cooling methods to keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe.
Pulsed light treatments include:
Mercy Medical Group uses a fractional laser, which penetrates more deeply into the skin than pulsed light, but it is not as effective in treating veins. Our Palomar Medical Technology® fractional laser and intense pulsed light treatments can complement each other to give patients the benefits of both technologies.
Fractional laser treatments include:
Pricing for laser resurfacing varies depending on the area of the body to be treated, the length of treatment session required and the type of laser used.
