Skin Resurfacing for Skin, Vein & Hair Treatments
Skin Resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation treatment to reduce the appearance of aging or to treat certain skin conditions.
Skin Resurfacing Treatments can make a dramatic improvement in the way you look. For relatively little effort, you could take years off of your appearance.
Treatment intensity varies and is customized to meet your skin needs. During a consultation, we will review recommendations and options with you.
Signature Dermatology and Aesthetics is proud to offer:
A state-of-the-art resurfacing laser that combines two wavelengths in one treatment.
One wavelength gently vaporizes the surface of the skin to improve skin texture, pore size, and freckles. The second wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen and treat wrinkles and scars.

What is Skin Resurfacing Used For?
We offer a wide variety of skin resurfacing treatments and many conditions respond very well to skin resurfacing, such as:
- Overgrowth of hair
- Acne scars
- Hyperpigmentation (age spots)
- Skin lesions, warts or scars
- Wrinkles or fine lines
- Sagging skin/jowls
- Spider veins, broken capillaries or vascular lesions
There are even more skin conditions that may warrant consideration of skin resurfacing. Talk to your dermatologist at Signature Dermatology and Aesthetics to see if skin resurfacing may be right for you.
Am I a Candidate For Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing is effective for many conditions, including those brought about by lifestyles and habits.
If you regularly sunbathe or have a history of drinking or smoking, you may need treatment for sun damage, wrinkles, and broken capillaries. Skin resurfacing is not preventative, so if you indulge in the same kind of behaviors, the initial problem will return.
The best candidates for skin resurfacing are those who are willing to do more to protect their skin. That way, the results will be lasting.
There are others who might not respond well to skin resurfacing treatments. This includes those who:
- Are currently taking certain acne medications
- Are vulnerable to excess scarring
- Are pregnant
- Are taking blood-thinning medication or aspirin daily
- Have certain skin resurfacing disorders
- Are prone to sunburns or who currently have a tan or sunburn
- Have active acne breakouts
- Are dark-skinned
Your dermatologist will advise you as to whether or not you are a good candidate for skin resurfacing. Often, the reason someone isn’t a good candidate has to do with the potential for visible scarring after treatment. But all in all, a healthy individual with relatively good skin and no underlying conditions can expect to be a good candidate for this treatment.
Skin resurfacing is FDA-approved and has been shown to be highly effective over the decades. Why not see for yourself what skin resurfacing can do for your skin?
