With four convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, is pleased to offer non-surgical laser resurfacing treatments to help men and women who live in North Florida achieve a more youthful, attractive experience.

What Is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cutting-edge way to revitalize the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that can drastically reduce the marks of aging, such as sun damage, age spots, and wrinkles. Using advanced laser techniques, Dr. Garcia is able to remove the most damaged top layers of skin while activating the development of new skin cells and collagen, bringing your skin back to its former healthy state. Laser skin resurfacing offers impressive results with minimal discomfort.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Laser Resurfacing?

Studies have shown that aging affects our skin in three basic ways. The first sign of aging comes with the saggy skin caused by gravity. The second stage of aging is a result of our facial muscles causing wrinkles, such as crow’s feet or laugh lines. Plastic surgery can be a great way to reverse the effects of aging caused by the first two ways. The third way our skin ages isn’t as obvious and requires more than just a facelift to remedy. The surface of your skin, damaged by the environment, can look tired and this ages you. Without proper attention, marred skin can affect the results of other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Think of the skin as a painter’s canvas. You wouldn’t paint a masterpiece on a dirty or aged canvas and, in the same way, if your skin appears dull and aged, it will undermine the results of even the best cosmetic surgery. It can even make your facelift appear less natural.

Laser resurfacing is the best way to confront aging skin. There are other treatment options, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, but laser resurfacing offers the best results. Anyone who suffers from age spots, sun spots, broken blood vessels or wrinkles makes a perfect candidate for laser resurfacing. Whether your aged skin is the result of sun damage, dry climate or other environmental influences or you have developed wrinkles, such as smokers or frown lines, laser resurfacing can help you return to a more youthful appearance.

Palomar® StarLux™ 1540 Fractionated Resurfacing

Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a recent technology developed to treat numerous skin issues with a quick recovery time. The Palomar® Lux 1540 is one of the premier fractional lasers. It is a non-ablative erbium laser that is part of the Palomar® Icon Aesthetic System. It transports light to the skin through a collection of high precision microbeams that penetrate deep into the skin. This penetration produces thin, yet deep, columns of skin coalescence, surrounded by the healthy, untreated skin. As a result, the skin repairs itself by simply exchanging worn, sun damaged skin with new, youthful, healthy skin. The Lux 1540 dispenses fractionated light, making the treatments much safer than other laser procedures. The fractionated light also ensures the procedure will deliver reliable and consistent results.

The recovery time that results from fractional resurfacing with the Lux 1540 is minimal compared to other ablative laser procedures. Because the procedure is non-invasive, the patient can expect only mild redness and a small amount of swelling post procedure. Fractional skin resurfacing with the Lux 1540 is very safe and doesn’t come with the side effects that often incur with non-fractionated lasers.

What Skin Conditions Are Treatable With The Lux 1540 Fractional Laser?

The Palomar® Lux 1540 can be used to treat many skin conditions. The following ailments that can be treated include:

  • Sun damage, such as wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and smoker’s lines
  • Acne scars
  • Scars, whether the result of surgery or injury
  • Skin texture and tone issues
  • Melasma
  • Stretch marks (striae)
  • Skin irregularities
