What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a process by which damaged layers of skin are removed with a high-intensity light. Dr. Palmer recommends laser skin resurfacing as a skin discoloration treatment, as well as for sun damage, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and other issues.

Our laser skin resurfacing treatments start at $1,500, and your cost is determined by the treatment plan that you develop with Dr. Palmer during the consultation.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
- Promotes the development of new, healthy skin cells
- Remedies common skin problems, such as wrinkles, scars, and age spots
- Manageable downtime
Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?
Laser skin resurfacing helps with several issues, but there are some conditions that cannot be treated, such as:
- Deeper wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Dark skin tone
- Uncontrolled acne
If you have any of these conditions, Dr. Palmer may recommend an alternative procedure.
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing involves removing damaged skin in microscopic columns versus parallel to the skin surface. Dr. Palmer recommends CO2 laser skin resurfacing to his patients as a skin pigmentation treatment and anti-aging solution because it requires less overall skin removal, yet can address the same concerns as other types of laser skin resurfacing.
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Dr. Palmer uses the ALMA 540 handpiece for the treatment. The laser energy is administered in short bursts. You may feel a sensation that is like a small pinch on your skin each time the laser is applied. The columns that are formed in the skin allow for the production of new collagen and healthy cells.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery Like?
Laser skin resurfacing is performed in our office, and you are released home after a short recovery in our surgical suite. You may have some discomfort based on the degree of resurfacing that is performed. Your skin will feel like it has a bad sunburn for the first day or two. Expect to spend this time resting at home.
