Top 3 Reasons to Try Laser Skin Resurfacing

Time, sun damage, and other environmental factors can lead to dull and damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing treats a wide range of skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, visible blood vessels, and fine lines. This gentle but highly effective treatment provides clear, luminous skin without downtime or discomfort. 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a way of rejuvenating the skin using light energy. Your Manhattan Aesthetics team uses the IPL Photofacial for skin resurfacing. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses more wavelengths simultaneously than a standard laser, letting it treat more skin issues. 


A Photofacial gently heats the deeper layers of the skin, where it triggers new collagen production. It also targets pigmentation and shrinks expanded blood vessels to leave your skin clearer and smoother.

Top 3 Reasons to Try Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing with a Photofacial is a popular way to achieve and maintain bright, youthful-looking skin. A series of treatments can provide dramatic results without the discomfort or recovery time of a laser. 

Quick and Comfortable

A Photofacial usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Your Manhattan Aesthetics provider will apply a gel to your skin to keep it comfortable. Most people do not need numbing, although the option is available. You can leave your session and return to your usual activities without downtime

New Collagen Production

Heating the deep layers of the skin signals cells called fibroblasts to make more collagen. Collagen forms your skin’s support structure, and it declines with age. Boosting collagen levels leads to firmer, smoother skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. It also corrects signs of aging, such as mild skin laxity and dullness. 

Treats More Skin Issues

Standard lasers can usually treat red-toned pigments, such as rosacea, or brown-toned pigments, such as hyperpigmentation and age spots, but not both. An IPL Photofacial can treat both as well as stimulate collagen production. These traits make it a versatile, all-in-one way to maintain healthy, youthful skin

How Many Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments Will I Need?

The number of laser skin resurfacing treatments varies depending on several factors, including the types of skin concerns you want to address. We space these treatments one month apart to allow maximum time for collagen development and pigmentation fading. You can start to see results a week or two after your first treatment, with full results appearing gradually as your sessions continue. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Most people are good candidates for laser skin resurfacing. Only a consultation can determine whether this treatment is right for you. Candidates want to address their skin concerns and fight signs of aging with a safe, effective treatment. You may need to reschedule your treatment if you have certain skin conditions in the treatment area.
