About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing at GLO Laser & Med Spa is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged skin one layer at a time. The treatment is great for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin blemishes, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Using advanced technology, such as PicoSure® by Cynosure, laser skin resurfacing is a great facial treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the condition of the complexion, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some downtime needed with most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any concerns or questions can be discussed with the friendly and professional team at GLO Laser & Med Spa during your consultation.
"Oh wow, finally I have my Ultherapy done!!!1, I am sooooo amazed by Dr. Li's extensive experience and deep knowledge about human anatomy, anesthesiology and cosmetic medicine. Its very hard to find someone who can perform this procedure well while experiencing little pain. Even during the preliminary consultation, she made sure I understood not only HOW each procedure will be done, but WHY each procedure needs to be done. You will learn a great deal about your own facial/physical construction and be able to make an informed decision on what you would like to be done.2. Dr. Li has exhibits great bedside manners and professionalism. She takes the time to listen to your needs and expectations rather jumping in and telling you what she thinks should be done. Her professional manner will instantly gain your trust and you will connect on a personable level during your visit.3.Dr. Li truly goes above and beyond for her patients. She does tailors each treatment plan to what suits YOU as an unique individual. She is a rare find, an absolute gem and will make you feel beautiful and confident inside and out.4.I consulted 3 different clinic about Ultherapy. Dr. Li's office provided is the most reasonable treatment plan. Just did my 1st treatment on 1/25/2020. Also have also been getting facials done at Dr. Li’s clinic back for the past 1.5 years. Here staff has always made me feel welcomed and treated me as a valued client."- Z.F. / Google / Jan 30, 2020

She said my face looks much brighter and smoother. The result is far beyond my expectations. And I can't feel any discomfort at all. I'm so happy and satisfied with Dr. Li's services. She and her team are so professional and friendly. Will continue my other 3 treatments to remove my spider vein completely."- Y.Y. / Google / Oct 17, 2019

Laser skin resurfacing with PicoSure by Cynosure is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you have sun damage, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, laser skin resurfacing can address these cosmetic flaws. In addition, this treatment works well for patients who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. However, skin resurfacing is not recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne. Also, it is important to be aware that there is downtime associated with these laser peels. Some patients, depending on the condition of their skin, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
Prior to your PicoSure laser resurfacing treatment, you may be asked to use a retinoid cream for a few weeks. This helps prepare the skin for better results. During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. You will feel the warmth from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to eliminate dead and damaged skin cells while also stimulating natural collagen production.
What to Expect
After your session, a healing ointment will be applied to the skin and you can return home to recover. The skin will appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days and the peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. The treated areas will most likely be covered by dressings and the swelling, irritation, and burning side effects will be more intense. Medication can be prescribed to minimize these side effects. The recovery time associated with laser skin resurfacing can last 2 – 3 weeks. All patients should reduce their sun exposure after their treatment and apply sun protection frequently. After your PicoSure treatment, your skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to evade scarring and to protect the treated area from UV exposure. Once the peeling process has been completed, your skin will feel softer while looking clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.
