As we age, our skin begins to lose its youthful appearance, which is affected by loss of volume and ability to stretch. A variety of factors are responsible including overexposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, scars from previous skin conditions like acne, dark areas on the skin, oversized pores, and wrinkles. At Oasis Medi-Spa we use a state-of-the-art Fraxel laser which can address skin problems of any degree, from mild to severe.
This advanced treatment safely resurfaces your skin with a fractionated laser. It can eliminate a variety of skin problems while stimulating the skin to produce collagen, which declines as we age. The absence of collagen results in unwanted folds, lines, and wrinkles.
As a non-invasive procedure, Fraxel laser skin treatment is a safe technique that effects only a small percentage of the inner layer of facial skin. This inner layer, called the dermis, is responsible for the production of collagen. During the procedure, the laser creates tiny micro punctures in order to stimulate a desirable healing process. As this occurs, the skin loses its damaged cells and collagen returns to visibly promote a more youthful appearance.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Fraxel method to rejuvenate a number of body areas. In addition to the face, these include the chest, the neck, and the hands. We offer two excellent choices: the Palomar 1540 Fractional Laser and 2940 Fractional Laser. If your goal is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, these two methods eliminate the typical burden of long recovery required for more old fashioned CO2 lasers. We can recommend which method would be best for your situation based on your desired results and skin type.
Skin resurfacing is also available with Morpheus8. Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production within the skin reducing wrinkles and providing skin tightening. This treatment targets the deep layers of the skins dermal layer. Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal on both the body and face. It is a minimally invasive treatment with little to no downtime.

Recovery from Laser Skin Resurfacing
We perform laser skin resurfacing in our office operating room. You will shed ten to fifteen years from your appearance as a result of our highly efficient Fraxel lasers. These revolutionary treatments can help remove wrinkles and other unsightly blemishes.
For patients who need more minimal laser resurfacing, only a mild numbing cream is needed prior to treatment. Since our office is equipped with a state-of-the art accredited operating suite, every patient is able to achieve results regardless of the severity of the problem. In some cases, patients choose to include other procedures such as a facelift or eyelid surgery to ensure the best cumulative results.
While every patient recovers at his or her own pace, there can be some redness of the areas treated for a period of a few days to a few weeks. You may experience some mild discomfort immediately after the procedure. Every patient receives the best aftercare including our Rapid Recovery Protocol to help speed healing and achieve the best results.
