What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing for our Birmingham, Grand Rapids, and Detroit patients reduces pigmentation, surface wrinkles, and irregularities. Resurfacing options include chemical peels, laser procedures, and light-based treatments.

  • Fractional resurfacing creates microscopic wounds and requires several treatments to remodel the skin over time.
  • Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation removes only the uppermost skin cells and requires repeat treatments to achieve and maintain improvement.
  • Resurfacing is a form of highly controlled ablation (removal) of the upper layers of the skin so that new skin can form and collagen can be rebuilt and enhanced.

With skin resurfacing Grand Rapids area patients look younger and more attractive by improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, surface irregularities, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation.

What Else Should I Know Aboutskin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and standard skin preparation techniques such as microdermabrasion all work toward achieving clearer, more uniform, and brighter skin.

1. Recovery for deep resurfacing may take 1 to 2 weeks.

2. All procedures carry the potential for risks, which will be fully discussed with you during your consultation.

3. Results with your Grand Rapids skin resurfacing will help you look younger, but maintaining your results requires proper skincare and diligent sun protection.

4. New skin may take 7 to 10 days to fully regenerate following the procedure, depending on the depth of the peel and peeling process.

Ideal Candidates

Who is a candidate for Grand Rapids skin resurfacing at The Bengtson Center?

Age alone does not determine who might be a good candidate for facial rejuvenation procedures.

Women and men of various ages and from many circumstances choose to undergo skin resurfacing, and most of our Birmingham, Grand Rapids, and Detroit patients choose these procedures to delay or improve visible indications of facial aging and to correct skin surface irregularities. The following factors generally define good candidates for facial rejuvenation procedures:

  • You can clearly define your goals for skin resurfacing.
  • You understand what these procedures can and cannot accomplish.
  • You accept the potential risks of these procedures and your responsibilities as a patient.
  • You are healthy, emotionally secure, and stable.
  • You accept that you will need to make healthy lifestyle choices to maintain the results achieved by facial rejuvenation procedures.
  • You have realistic expectations and are willing to accept minor asymmetries.
