Laser Skin Resurfacing
Environmental damage is a primary cause of age-related skin conditions, such as wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and rough skin texture. In Palm Springs and Palm Desert, laser skin resurfacing is chosen to visibly erase the unwanted effects of environmental exposure and sun damage, as well as for the treatment of conditions such as acne and facial veins. With each successive treatment, your skin will look healthier, younger, and more radiant.
Our laser nurse specialists and estheticians are highly trained in the correct use of laser technology and will properly assess your skin type in order to recommend the most effective treatment.

What to Expect
The areas of your face to be treated will first be marked to ensure accuracy. Your nurse will then clean the injection sites with an antibacterial agent, and a topical anesthetic may also be applied for additional comfort. The dermal fillers are then carefully injected into the correct locations (this process takes only a few minutes). After your treatment, you can return to work or your regular activities immediately.
Some people may experience mild swelling or bruising after treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days. Depending on the type of filler used, you may be asked to gently massage your face for a few minutes each day to ensure that the filler spreads evenly. Your nurse will provide you with any post-procedural instructions.
Enhancing Your Look
BOTOX® Cosmetic is often chosen in addition to laser skin resurfacing by men and women who want to lift areas of the face that are sagging. Dermal fillers are also a great way to enhance the results of your laser treatment.
