What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Our Vital fractional laser skin resurfacing at Vital Aesthetics is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light to remove dead and damaged skin cells layer by layer. The treatment is performed by our practitioners, Dr. Richard Eller and Dr. Michele Cavenee, at our Dallas, TX MedSpa.
You will love the anti-aging effects that laser skin resurfacing can produce for your skin. The Vital fractional laser skin resurfacing can be used to decrease the visibility of deep wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and pigmentation problems. Also known as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is an ideal facial treatment if you want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the condition of your complexion, this laser may be adjusted in depth and intensity for your best results. Any concerns or questions may be discussed with our aesthetics team during your assessment and consultation.
"Another Dr. Eller fan here! He did surgery on my elderly dad in an emergency situation. My dad was not a candidate for elective surgery due to his age and health issues, and Dr. Eller did what he could to help him avoid surgery. But when it was inevitable, he gave him the best possible chance of recovery, which he achieved! He also spent all the time needed to help us understand what was going on. I know he didn’t get paid extra for all the time he took with my dad, but he treated him as if he was a family member. We are so thankful there are doctors like him who haven’t given up on the medical profession! Thank you, Dr. Eller. We are eternally grateful!"- C.B. / Healthgrades / Jun 24, 2020

"I met Reese and Dr. Cavenee a couple years back and had my first appointment with Reese and Dr. Eller today. Love them both. Reese has been so great at communicating before the appointment and during. They were accommodating and allowed me to have a spa day today. No stress and they kept spoiling me. Everyone loves what they do at this boutique practice making the patient, or client, the focus, and not the sale. I'm excited to return back as Reese and Dr. Eller never made me feel pressured and really took such great care of me. I didn't want to leave, but I'll be back in a couple weeks so it's ok! Thank you so much Reese for keeping in touch over the years and waiting for me to come in when the time was right!"- D.F. / Google / Apr 13, 2019
Do I qualify for laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is not appropriate for men and women who have excessively loose skin, deep wrinkling, very dark pigmentation of the skin, or an active acne outbreak. The treatment may not be effective in treating these conditions or make your acne worse. Most of the time, our laser skin resurfacing is safe for all skin types. If you see skin damaged by the sun, age spots, acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, then this treatment may be a worthwhile treatment. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works wonderfully for patients who have a rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. Additionally, it's important to know that there is a recovery period associated with these laser treatments. Some patients, based on their skin condition, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
Our laser skin resurfacing technique
When you come to your laser skin resurfacing appointment, we will take you to your own treatment room to have your session. We will provide you with protection for your eyes and ask that you wear them for your safety. Depending on the depth of your laser skin resurfacing, you may need a topical anesthetic to ease the discomfort the laser can cause. For the full face or more intense laser treatments, some kind of sedation may be required. During the treatment, you will recline in the treatment chair as the laser passes over your skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for rejuvenation. You may feel the warmth from the laser followed with cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy works to remove layers of damaged skin cells while also stimulating new collagen growth.
After Laser skin resurfacing
After laser skin resurfacing, you will recover at home. You can expect your skin to look pink with some swelling and irritation. This should subside in a few days. Your skin peeling process may take 3 – 5 days or more to shed. We will give you specific instructions on how to care for your skin post-laser treatment. All patients should reduce UV exposure after laser skin resurfacing. Protect your skin at all times. Regardless of the intensity of the peel, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel off. Let your skin naturally go through the healing process by not pulling on the peeling skin. This will help to prevent scarring. After the shedding phase has finished, your skin should feel smoother while appearing clearer, rejuvenated, and younger.
