About Skin Rejuvenation
Photoaging is the term that describes how skin ages in response to sun exposure. The ultraviolet rays can cause solar elastosis, characterized by dry, thick skin. Sun damage is also linked to premature wrinkling, liver spots, and leathery skin texture.
Visible signs of aging and other skin imperfections can be effectively targeted using laser energy. We offer multiple laser options at Carolina Plastic Surgery to help you with all of your aesthetic concerns.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Also referred to as fractional resurfacing, CO2 laser resurfacing treats one fraction of the skin at a time. The targeted beam creates microchannels that leave the healthy tissue intact and stimulate the skin’s natural healing response. CO2 laser therapy minimizes post-treatment redness and downtime and promotes results that are both immediate and long-lasting.
The Palomar Icon Aesthetic System is a versatile, multi-treatment technique. It can effectively reduce imperfections, visible signs of aging, visible veins, unwanted body hair, and more using next-generation technology. The Palomar Icon system features state-of-the-art Contact Cooling to keep the skin surface comfortable throughout treatment. Dr. Saini employs the built-in Skintel melanin reader to scan patients’ skin prior to treatment. She then customizes the wavelength of the laser for optimal patient safety, effectiveness, and comfort.
Are you seeking a more permanent alternative for removing unwanted body hair? The Vectus may be right for you! Laser-based hair removal permanently disables hair follicles, preventing growth at the source. Vectus keeps you silky smooth without any stubble, ingrown hairs, or razor burn. The Vectus system is powered by an 810-nanometer diode laser. The specifications are tuned specifically to target unsightly hair and bring out your inner glow.
The SmartSkin laser system emits small pulses into treated areas and can be tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Healthy skin is kept intact. Your body is empowered to produce more collagen and elastin beneath the surface to gradually remodel problematic areas. SmartSkin can be utilized on multiple areas of the body for a wide range of imperfections. Studies show a noticeable reduction in photoaging (sun damage) one month after treatment, and the benefits typically extend for at least three months. SmartSkin has also proven wonderfully effective in treating acne scars and other textural impurities.

Preparation and Procedure
The preparation process for laser resurfacing begins once your consultation ends. Dr. Saini and her associates will provide you with detailed instructions to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to succeed. You may be directed to treat your skin with a series of products to aptly prepare it for the ensuing laser treatment of your choice.
You may be instructed to stop taking certain medications in the weeks leading up to your procedure. Blood thinners, for example, may impede your ability to heal rapidly and productively. Please tell Dr. Saini if you are on any anti-acne medications like isotretinoin (brand name Accutane). She can advise you on the best path forward to minimize scarring and maximize healing.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Saini will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. The skin is also cleansed to remove excess oils and impurities. Please do not wear makeup to your laser appointment.
The laser is slowly and precisely maneuvered over the treatment area. Dr. Saini will explain the process before performing your laser resurfacing. She wants you to be well informed and a willing participant in your own enhancement journey.
Immediately following laser therapy, soothing wraps are applied to the treatment area. The duration of your healing process will hinge upon which type of treatment you received. Deep lasers may require 2-3 weeks for a full recovery while surface sessions only take 3-7 days. You can use ice packs to respond to any mild swelling or redness that may occur.
Please avoid sun exposure during your recovery period. You should keep the treatment area clean and hydrated, but please do not use a product without consulting Dr. Saini first. She can recommend the right moisturizer for your anatomy and post-procedural needs.
Looking good is a triumph, but feeling great is what life is all about. Laser treatment will replenish the look of your complexion by removing age spots and unwanted hair. It will also deliver a smooth, even texture to your skin and boost your confidence along the way.
