About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged surface skin one layer at a time. The treatment is great for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin blemishes, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is a great facial treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the condition of the complexion, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some downtime needed with most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any concerns or questions can be discussed with Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Warren Ellsworth IV during the consultation.
Ellsworth Plastic Surgery uses the Sciton JOULE platform, which offers minimally invasive laser treatment to target specific areas. The HALO™ handpiece, an extension of the Sciton JOULE platform, delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths, giving patients distinct results without downtime or discomfort. One of the most exciting benefits of this technology is the lack of invasiveness and discomfort that can sometimes accompany other laser skin resurfacing procedures.
"Dr. Ellsworth was the first Doctor that told me, he would NEVER put implants in my breast with my history of Breast Cancer. At that time I wanted a quick fix not realizing his extensive background with women like me, or what was even best for me. It didn’t take long to know that he cared a lot about his patients. His hands are definitely a gift from God. I have been on his table 3 plus times, and he is THE BEST PERIOD!!!!! You will know the moment you meet him."- J.D. / Facebook / Oct 18, 2019

Laser skin resurfacing is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you have sun damage, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, laser skin resurfacing treatment can address these cosmetic flaws. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works well for patients who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. This treatment is not recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne.
During your session, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting specific sections for resurfacing. You will feel the warmth from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to eliminate dead and damaged skin cells while also stimulating natural collagen production.
What to Expect
All patients should reduce their sun exposure after treatment and apply sun protection frequently. For all peel intensities, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to evade scarring and to protect the treated area from UV exposure. Once the peeling process has been completed, your skin will feel softer while looking clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.
A Softer, Clearer Complexion
A laser skin resurfacing peel offers excellent results if you want a younger-looking complexion. If you are thinking about a laser resurfacing treatment and would like to learn more about them, as well as other nonsurgical treatments Ellsworth Plastic Surgery offers, we invite you to call our office in Houston, TX today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Ellsworth.
