Time, gravity, and collagen loss can lead to skin that looks tired and uneven. Laser skin resurfacing firms and brightens your skin to undo signs of aging. This versatile treatment works on conditions ranging from age spots and wrinkles to acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a customizable way to achieve youthful-looking skin. Dr. Farole and his team use the AcuPulse™ CO2 laser for skin resurfacing. This laser can target almost any skin concern at any depth with eleven treatment modes. Laser skin resurfacing signals cells in your dermis to produce more collagen. It also brings fresh skin cells to the surface to replace old, damaged ones.
How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
Laser skin resurfacing is not a single procedure with a specific price. Your cost for the procedure will vary depending on several factors:
- The type of laser used
- The size of the treatment area
- The number of treatments needed
- The skill and experience of your provider
- Other factors, such as location
The best way to understand your laser resurfacing cost is to schedule a consultation. Our team will assess your skin concerns and needs, develop a treatment plan, and provide you with an estimated cost. However, each individual responds differently to treatment, so you may need more or fewer treatments than expected. An experienced provider will give you better results with lower risk.
How Does a CO2 Laser Work for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
AcuPulse™ is a CO2 laser, a type of laser that uses a specific wavelength of light to resurface the skin. As a fractional laser, it creates controlled areas of micro-damage that trigger skin renewal. Cells in the dermis respond by producing more collagen, tightening and firming your skin. Your skin’s surface also responds with healthy new skin cells, eliminating signs of aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and skin laxity. AcuPulse™ can use different modes to target specific skin depths and concerns.

Is There Any Downtime After Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Your downtime after laser skin resurfacing will vary depending on many factors. Most people can resume their usual activities after three to seven days. A more intensive treatment will have more downtime but may produce more results per treatment session. Your treatment plan will take your lifestyle and schedule into consideration.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Most people make good candidates for laser resurfacing with AcuPulse™. Your customized treatment plan will consider your skin type and tone, your skin concerns, and factors that might affect your results. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations and healthy skin in the treatment area.
