Improve Skin Texture & Tone with Our Treatments Available to Residents of Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square & the Main Line
Enjoy the smooth, clear complexion you've always dreamed of having with laser skin resurfacing at our Philadelphia-area practice, accessible to Bryn Mawr and Newtown Square residents along the Main Line, as well as Delaware, Montgomery, and Chester counties.
Unfortunately, as time passes, our prior fun and carefree experiences, such as sitting outside in the sun or enjoying outdoor sports, can result in unwanted sun or age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, discolorations, and "leathery" sun-damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing can improve these undesirable skin problems.
What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Laser skin resurfacing addresses:
- Skin discolorations
- Age and sun spots on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands
- Uneven texture and skin tone resulting from UV exposure and age
- Fine lines and wrinkles, such as those around the mouth and eyes
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Loose or sagging skin
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Laser skin resurfacing is a very safe technology that patients frequently choose over more invasive, surgical procedures. We perform fractionated laser skin resurfacing to address the above-mentioned problems.
Fractionated laser skin resurfacing is based on the principle of micro-thermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny treatment zones and remove the upper layers of skin. The micro-thermal treatment zones trigger the body's natural healing process and stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin. Thus, fractionated laser skin resurfacing treats small skin areas, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These untouched areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. Cirillo Cosmetic uses fractionated Erb:YAG and CO2 lasers.
Results & Recovery
Since each patient’s skin profile is different, their results and recovery patterns can vary accordingly. Recovery time is approximately one to three days for the fractionated Erb:YAG laser and seven days for the fractionated CO2 laser. You will receive detailed post-procedure instructions.
Changes in skin tone, color, and texture are often noticed within weeks after treatment. However, deeper wrinkles, scars, and skin laxity will continue to improve months after laser skin resurfacing. The full benefits of laser skin resurfacing typically appear six to 12 months after treatment.
