You can look and feel years younger with laser skin resurfacing treatments in Northwest Arkansas at Arkansas Vein Clinic and Skin Care. We offer two state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments for renewing your skin’s luster and clarity—MicroLaserPeel® and ProFractional™ laser therapy. These laser skin treatments not only remove damaged superficial skin but also stimulate collagen replenishment.
MicroLaserPeel can restore a more youthful appearance by removing a very thin layer of skin, and can be customized from a light peel with just three days of downtime to a deeper peel with up to seven days downtime. This laser skin treatment can revitalize skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands, improving fine lines, pigmentation, tone, and texture.
The ProFractional Laser in Northwest Arkansas offers excellent skin rejuvenation results with minimal downtime. Unlike full-field resurfacing that removes the entire surface area of skin, ProFractional only creates narrow channels in the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This laser action initiates the body’s healing response to produce new collagen while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed for rapid healing. For results that range from subtle to dramatic, ProFractional offers increased patient comfort and shorter healing times. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be added to your laser skin treatment to enhance collagen production and speed healing time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly can I see results?
With MicroLaserPeel, you can notice an improvement in your skin tone and texture as early as three days after your treatment. With ProFractional laser skin therapy in Fort Smith, your results will depend on the intensity of your treatment, though you should start seeing improvements in your skin’s tone and texture as early as a week following treatment. Since both laser treatments stimulate collagen production, you can continue to see improvements in your skin in the weeks and months following treatment.
Is there any pain associated with laser skin resurfacing?
Both treatments are well tolerated. To ensure your comfort, a topical anesthetic will be applied before your MicroLaserPeel or ProFractional treatment. Immediately following treatment, you may experience redness and a sunburned sensation. Swelling may also occur.
How much downtime can I expect?
Downtime depends on the intensity of your treatment and lasts from three to seven days. If you are treated with the ProFractional laser, you will experience a pattern of tiny dots on the skin that may be visible for one to two weeks after treatment, or possibly longer, depending on the depth of treatment. You will receive a post-procedure pack to use for three to seven days. As always, sun protection and good skin care following the procedure are key to achieving and maintaining your best results.
