How does Laser Resurfacing help with skin tightening?
Our Smartxide DOT® is a fractional CO2 laser that vaporizes micro-columns of skin to provide the immediate tightening and resurfacing of the skin. It provides collagen remodeling that continues for up to a year increasing elasticity. The DOT treatment smooths, tightens and resurfaces imperfections like mild to moderate wrinkles, sagging skin, scars, course texture, sun damage, sun spots, age spots and “crepey” skin.
Because the system uses fine micro beams, it minimizes discomfort, downtime and speeds healing. The treatment takes just over an hour with downtime that can be tailored to the result desired. DotTherapy can be used on face, eyelids, neck, chest, hands and stretch marks. Typical results last up to 5 years or more.

"I am a licensed aesthetician and have professional experience in the field of cosmetic dermatology and injectables. I have high expectations and I am not easily impressed. I found About Face and Body med spa and was immediately impressed by Michelle Spencer the injector as no one I know has ever surpassed her skills. She is passionate about facial perfection and it is very evident in her work. I could not possibly consider going anywhere else as my face is everything to me and the results that she provides are immaculate.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
Your laser skin resurfacing costs will depend on the treatment type you select. In your initial consultation, we will ask about your skin problems and goals before explaining the types of resurfacing treatments. Then, a team member can help you decide on your resurfacing treatment and discuss the cost of laser skin resurfacing. About Face & Body Medical Spa often runs treatment specials and packages so please be sure to ask during your appointment.
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
A team member will help you choose which resurfacing treatment works best for your needs and goals. The best treatment for you will depend on your skin's health, skin problems, and how deep you want the treatment to go. When choosing the best procedure, your preference on recovery time is also an important consideration. If you feel unsure about the options, we generally recommend starting with a milder treatment to see how you like your results and adjust as needed for your second treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Following your treatment, someone on our staff will talk to you about how you can improve your skin healing. The number one rule is not to peel or pick your skin. Picking the skin can cause long-term damage, like scars. Additionally, you should avoid all hair removal methods on the treatment area, including waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. For additional comfort during healing, we can suggest a cream to help soothe treated areas.
Should I get laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or microdermabrasion?
After listening to your issues, we will help you decide if laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion treatment is best for you. While they all improve your skin, each has pros and cons. During your consultation, we can review each choice and develop a treatment plan.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the laser resurfacing method you choose, you might need to wait weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deeper laser treatments will give you longer-lasting results; however, they will require a lengthy recovery period. Please let us know how frequently you can come back in for treatments so we can take this into account when selecting your laser skin resurfacing technique.
