Laser Skin Resurfacing

Your skin is your barrier between you and the world. That’s why it’s not just important for it to look its best, but you should feel confident in it as well. If you have skin concerns that you’d like to improve, laser skin resurfacing can be a great option for you. This effective treatment can target dull, sun-damaged skin to reveal smoother, healthier, and more even skin.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that rejuvenates the skin by targeting and improving a wide range of skin concerns. Our skin naturally repairs itself by shedding old and injured layers of skin to reveal new and healthy skin beneath. When we age, this healing process slows, and the top layer of skin becomes duller and more vulnerable to damage. Laser skin resurfacing works to remove this older skin to stimulate the healing process and reveal smoother, brighter, and younger skin.


How Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Improve Your Skin

Our laser skin resurfacing services are highly customizable procedures. We can choose from a variety of treatments to treat a wide range of skin concerns so you can feel better and look your best. Some of the ways laser skin resurfacing can treat your problem areas include:

  • Reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores
  • Filling in and evening out surface irregularities
  • Treating acne and acne scars
  • Improving hyperpigmentation
  • Removing age spots
  • Evening skin tone and complexion
  • Reducing the appearance of veins, lesions, and other vessels

At your consultation, you and your provider will discuss which areas you want to address. Together, you and your provider will decide which course of treatment will provide the best results for your skin.


Laser Skin Resurfacing With Sciton Joule Laser


At Gayoso Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we use the Sciton Joule Laser for laser skin resurfacing. With this laser, we can customize our procedures to target a variety of skin concerns due to the laser’s adjustable settings and many treatment options. We can treat deep beneath your skin’s surface for dramatic results or target surface-level imperfections for gentle yet effective improvement.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Be Broken Down into Three Main Treatment Options


This treatment is the least invasive of the three. The non-ablative treatment uses a light-based BBL, or BroadBand Light Laser, to remove surface-level imperfections. This gentle approach provides a subtle yet noticeable improvement over time with little to no downtime between treatments.

Fractionally Ablative

The Halo laser combines non-ablative and fully ablative methods to create small microchannels in a fraction of the skin. This will stimulate collagen production and partially resurface to improve skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and deeper pigmentation issues.

Fully Ablative

This treatment shaves down layers of skin for a more uniform appearance. As the skin heals, it will grow back without the previous imperfections. While fully-ablative treatment is the most invasive, it offers the most dramatic and effective results, and often, most patients only need a one-time treatment.

Treatments We Offer With the Sciton Laser

Due to the customizable nature of the Joule Sciton Laser, we have many treatment options we can choose from to provide our patients with the results they desire. With these options, we can improve the appearance of your cosmetic concerns to reveal clearer, smoother skin. You and your provider will work together to determine which of these treatments are best for you and your skin health.

This non-ablative treatment provides subtle improvement for a gentle and natural change to skin tone and texture. ClearSilk deposits heat beneath the skin to stimulate your body’s natural repair process. The minimally irritating treatment means there is no downtime and makes it suitable for all skin types. For brighter and healthier skin, this laser skin resurfacing option is a great supplement to your skincare regimen.

Common Issues ClearSilk Can Treat

Rosacea, redness, fine lines, acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation


Halo combines ablative and non-ablative treatments for quick and effective results. Fractionally ablative treatment provides dramatic improvement with minimal recovery time and is suitable for all skin types. After one to two sessions, you will see improvements in your skin texture and complexion.

Common Issues Halo Can Treat

Sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin dullness, and more


For an effective solution to the most stubborn imperfections, TRL can produce the best results. TRL, or Tunable Resurfacing Laser, is a fully ablative treatment that removes the damaged layers of skin to stimulate collagen growth and produces newer, healthier skin cells for younger, smoother skin. This treatment has the longest recovery period, but it also provides the most dramatic results.

Common Issues TRL Can Treat

Treats wrinkles, scars, skin laxity, pore size, uneven size, and pigmentation


For those that struggle with visible veins and vessels, ClearV may be the best laser skin resurfacing treatment. This buildable treatment uses laser energy to gently lessen the appearance of vessels over time with minimal recovery time. ClearV can target vessels anywhere on the body for all skin types and tones.

Common Issues ClearV Can Treat

Broken capillaries, vessels, vascular lesions, skin discoloration, spider veins, and rosacea

BBL Hero

Laser skin resurfacing isn’t only for the face. With BBL Hero, we can offer skin revitalization for the entire body. This treatment uses BroadBand Light technology to target imperfections on the surface or deep-rooted pigmentation issues underneath. You can reverse signs of damage or aging on areas like the neck, legs, back, or arms for more youthful, glowy skin.

Common Issues BBL Hero Can Treat

Pigmentation issues, sun damage, age spots, and more


What to Expect at Your Consultation

Your laser skin resurfacing treatment starts with a consultation with one of our providers. During this time, you and your provider will discuss your health history, current medications, and previous procedures to ensure there are no complications moving forward. It’s important to be honest with your provider at this time, as we don’t want any known factor to impair your recovery. At the consultation, you and your provider will also discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations for your laser skin resurfacing. We will take these into account, along with your skin type, to determine which treatment is best for you and your skin’s health.


Though laser skin resurfacing is a very safe procedure in the hands of a licensed provider, it isn’t without its risks. At your consultation, your provider will educate you about the potential risks so you can make an informed decision concerning your next steps. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your procedure, don’t hesitate to discuss them with your provider. Your safety comes first, always. Our team takes every precaution to reduce the likelihood of complications so you are as safe and as comfortable as possible throughout your procedure.


No two recoveries are the same, especially for laser skin resurfacing. The length of your recovery is based on which treatment you receive. For example, those that have a fully-ablative treatment will need longer than those who receive a non-ablative treatment. Fully-ablative procedures are often accompanied by more discomfort and swelling than other treatments. You will be advised against strenuous activity as you heal. For all laser skin resurfacing treatments, your provider will give post-procedure care instructions for you to follow to care for and maintain your results.


Generally, most patients will be able to see the full results of their laser skin resurfacing after a month. The treated skin should be clearer and smoother, with a noticeable improvement to your skin concerns. For non-ablative and some fractionally ablative treatments, you may need repeated sessions to fully treat the area. After your skin has healed, we recommend keeping a skincare regimen that works for you to maintain your results.
