A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with either chemical peels or laser wrinkle removal to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyper-pigmentation, and produce a softer texture to the skin. The program can be accomplished separately or in conjunction with the other procedures listed here. Our specialty is represented by many names; Oral Surgery, Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, and Oral Facial Surgery. With the latest in laser technology, Drs. Carr or Gonzalez perform laser skin resurfacing, age or sun spot removal, and laser tattoo removal.
Laser Skin Resurfacing As one of the most exciting and innovative scientific achievements of the decade, Laser technology is being utilized throughout the health care community. We use one of the newest lasers, the ultrapulse carbon dioxide laser, to treat sun-damaged skin, facial wrinkles and scars in a procedure called laser skin resurfacing. This type of laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars, acne scars, or areas of uneven pigmentation.
The options discussed here are some of the options available to Dr. Gocke and his team at Virginia Oral, Facial, & Implant Surgery in McLean, VA.. Laser Facial Resurfacing. Laser Facial Resurfacing, in this case, refers to the CO 2 RE Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser system by Syneron Candela. This system removes layers of skin in fractionated columns to allow for greater healing and to reduce. A surgical laser, such as the CO2 laser, is a beam of light capable of removing unwanted tissue, such as scarred, lined, wrinkled, and otherwise imperfect skin. The laser vaporizes skin cells by emitting bursts of radiation that are absorbed by water in these cells.
