About Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing with InMode Fractora at A Woman Plastic Surgeon is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to eliminate dead and damaged skin layers. The treatment improves facial lines and wrinkles and minimizes skin flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and fine lines. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is an ideal procedure for patients desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. The radiofrequency power may be adjusted for each skin type with different settings to achieve optimal results. Your goals can be discussed with Metairie, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala and her experienced licensed aesthetician, Robin Brock, to customize a plan for you.

InMode Fractora

A Woman Plastic Surgeon utilizes the InMode Fractora system for nonsurgical skin resurfacing treatments. This innovative radio frequency technology is a safe and effective method for treating a wide variety of skin types and conditions. It's also a great treatment that can be customized for mild to more severe cases that include wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and pigmentation issues. It is frequently combined with Lumecca IPL for a combined facial rejuvenation that improves skin texture and eliminates hyperpigmentation and age spots.

Ideal Candidates

Skin resurfacing is ideal for people who are unhappy with their skin's appearance. If you have skin damaged by the sun, acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, redness, or pigmentation troubles, a resurfacing treatment can be helpful to improve these issues. In addition, a laser resurfacing works well for those who have scaly patches, rough skin texture, or other irregularities. Depending on the depth and extent of your individualized procedure,  there may be some downtime after your treatment. Some patients, depending on the condition of their skin, may need up to 2 weeks for their skin to look its best.

Procedure Technique

During the procedure, you will relax in our Red Spa while the InMode Fractora uses a stamping method over the skin, precisely targeting the needed surfaces for rejuvenation. You will feel the heat of the RF laser but with minimal discomfort. The Fractora works to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production. The result is beautiful, radiant-looking skin.

What to Expect

Following your skin resurfacing treatment, your skin will appear red, and there will be some mild irritation and swelling. This should subside in a few days and while visible results can be seen in the days that follow, the most noticeable results will occur at around 2 – 4 weeks. It's important to adhere to all aftercare instructions for optimal outcomes. You should also minimize your sun exposure and apply sun protection throughout the day. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery process, do not hesitate to call or visit our office.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does skin resurfacing cost?

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
