What Is Skin Resurfacing and How Does It Work?

Wouldn’t it be great to take back time and reverse the damage that has been done to your skin? Though that’s not an option, there are several skin resurfacing treatments available to help refresh your appearance and reduce the appearance of imperfections. You can fall in love with your skin again!

What Are Skin Resurfacing Treatments?

Depending on the procedure, skin resurfacing targets different layers of the skin, treating imperfections such as scars, lines, wrinkles and sun spots. Each skin resurfacing treatment works differently, but they all have the same goal—to reverse or get rid of your insecurities.

What Is Skin Resurfacing

How Do Skin Resurfacing Treatments Work?

While each skin resurfacing treatment is unique, they are all safe and typically do not require you to take time off work or miss other daily activities. For some treatments, you will only experience mild discomfort from a laser, while others are minimally invasive and may require a small amount of anesthetic. A skin care specialist can recommend the procedure that is best for your condition and will help you achieve your goals.

What Skin Resurfacing Treatments Do You Recommend?

As mentioned previously, the resurfacing procedure you go with depends on the current condition of your skin, and your desired result. There are some treatment options that are so effective, we offer them here at Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care! Be sure to consult with us to see which treatment will work best for you.

Clear + Brilliant

Clear + Brilliant is a laser treatment that fights and prevents the effects of aging skin. This treatment minimizes pores and reveals a glowing, even skin tone. Clear + Brilliant is safe for all skin types and doesn’t require any downtime.

Fraxel® Dual

Fraxel Dual targets the surface and deep layers of skin to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. Fractional laser technology is utilized in order to reveal smooth, fresh and younger-looking skin on the face, neck, chest, arms, legs and back. A topical anesthetic is placed on the skin before treatment, and only a warm sensation is felt during the procedure. Patients may experience minimal redness and swelling after treatment.


Ultherapy is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin under the chin, and on the neck and eyebrow. This procedure can also be performed on the chest for a fresh and younger-looking appearance. Ultherapy focuses on the deeper layers of the skin, so it doesn’t disrupt the surface. The treatment triggers collagen production, resulting in tight and healthy skin.
