Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a treatment used to reduce the signs of aging and achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion. Aesthetica delivers skin resurfacing via TempSure™ Envi, a state-of-the-art laser that uses pulses of radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into your skin.

The pulses work at a cellular level, encouraging your cells to regenerate collagen, an essential building block for a firm completion. After treatment, you should notice an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines.

What does skin resurfacing treat?

Laser resurfacing with TempSure Envi can improve the appearance of many skin-related conditions. Laser resurfacing is often used to soften fine lines or wrinkles around or under your eyes, on your forehead, or around your mouth. It also helps to:

  • Brighten sun-damaged skin
  • Minimize dark spots
  • Smooth or eliminate scars from acne or chickenpox
  • Improve your complexion and correct yellowish or grayish skin tones
  • Fade birthmarks, such as linear epidermal nevi
  • Shrink enlarged pore or oil glands on your nose
  • Tighten sagging skin

To provide these treatments, your practitioner may use one or more energy- or light-based technologies to give you the best result.

What should I expect during skin resurfacing?

To begin your TempSure Envi skin resurfacing treatment, your provider at Aesthetica first applies a gel to your skin. Then, using a small, handheld device, they massage your skin in circular motions. This sends waves of radiofrequency energy into your skin.

This process gradually raises the temperature of your skin within a safe range of 40-42 degrees Celsius. This temperature range promotes the production of collagen. Once the treatment is complete, your skin temperature returns to normal.

What should I expect after skin resurfacing?

You may see an enhanced appearance very quickly. Two or three days after treatment, your wrinkles may already seem less noticeable.

Around 7-10 days after treatment, the cellular rebuilding process begins. Tissue growth factors work on a molecular level to create a new supportive network of collagen and elastin bonds underneath your skin. About a month after treatment, these new bonds have fully formed, helping to smooth away wrinkles and provide a more youthful look to your skin.
