Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What types of skin resurfacing are available?

As you grow older, it’s inevitable that signs of aging and sun damage show up in unwanted places on your body. Skin resurfacing helps you smooth wrinkles, fade sunspots, address texture issues, repair discoloration, and minimize acne scars. 

CSC Steil Dermatology specializes in skin resurfacing and offers the following effective skin resurfacing services:


An innovative micropen needles the skin to initiate a healing response.


CSC Steil Dermatology uses physical and mechanical peels for improved targeting of your most challenging areas. Peels are great for fine lines, wrinkles, melasma, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration.


Customized therapeutic skin treatments that cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate your skin.


A cosmetic laser therapy that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and resurface your skin while also activating collagen production. Excellent for redness, visible blood vessels, and deep lines.


Gentle laser treatment designed especially for spider veins and broken blood vessels.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses light energy to provoke a healing response. The procedure speeds up collagen production and makes your skin look younger, firmer, and healthier. 

The team at CSC Steil Dermatology often combines your laser aesthetic treatment with fillers, microdermabrasion, Botox®, or peels to optimize your results.

What can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent choice if you want to get rid of:

  • Scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne
  • Wrinkles 
  • Fine lines
  • Irregular texture
  • Discoloration

Skin resurfacing is also a great option for firming loose skin on your face or neck.

Does skin resurfacing have side effects?

Like many dermatologic services, skin resurfacing has a few side effects like minor swelling, redness, itching, and stinging. All of these effects are short-lived and go away on their own. 

Your dermatologist discusses the treatment before beginning so you know exactly what to expect before, during, and after your skin resurfacing procedure.
