LASER SKIN RESURFACING

Laser Skin Resurfacing is one of our most popular treatments!

Laser Skin Resurfacing Charleston, SC
Laser resurfacing is a skin-rejuvenating procedure that uses a non-ablative laser to improve the appearance of your skin while treating wrinkles and fine lines, loose skin, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, surgical scars, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and more. The technique directs short, and concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregularities in the surface of your skin, precisely removing it layer by layer. By resurfacing your skin, this advanced laser technology stimulates growth of new healthy skin cells from the inside out.
 
Coastal Skin Solutions offers advanced laser skin resurfacing with several premier technologies. Fraxel Dual® and Clear + Brilliant™ use thermal energy to create micro-tears in the dermis. In response, those controlled ablations trigger collagen growth in the skin, resulting in a healthy glow, smoother texture and a tighter, younger-looking surface. Clear Lift™ from Alma, is a no-downtime, non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment, utilizing a 1064 nm wavelength that works below the surface of the skin to correct skin issues. Along with the long pulse 1064, Coastal Skin Solutions also offers IPL, which is not a laser, but intense pulsed light, for vascular issues, such as broken blood vessels on the face.

Why FRAXEL®?

Fraxel Charleston, SC
The gold standard in laser skin resurfacing, Fraxel Dual is the perfect choice for adults who want an aggressive treatment without the downtime that comes with invasive procedures. The original and still the best of all the laser resurfacing options, it allows us to simultaneously treat both deeper and more superficial indications in the same appointment. Fraxel can be used to treat anywhere on the body and is safe for any skin type or color. We offer a variety of different Fraxel options from individual treatments to customized packages.
 
Fraxel can help:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles – minimizing crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Surface & surgical scarring – erasing acne, surgical and other scarring effects
  • Pigmentation – diminishing the appearance of age spots
  • Sun damage – helping heal dangerous long-term effects
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK) – removing pre-cancerous skin condition

Why CLEAR + BRILLIANT®?

Clear + Brilliant Charleston, SC
While Fraxel Dual is still the best option for correcting more serious problem areas with laser resurfacing, Clear + Brilliant is a gentler laser skin treatment option that also goes a step beyond skincare and chemical peels to make your skin glow. Whether you want to maintain the younger look of your skin, or prevent minor early signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant can be a smart option for you.
 
Clear + Brilliant can help:
  • Prevent the signs of aging
  • Improve the look of fine lines
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Improve skin’s overall appearance
  • Minimize the appearance of pores
  • Improve the appearance of pigment irregularities

What's the Difference?

Fraxel uses a more intense laser than Clear + Brilliant, so it penetrates the skin more deeply, and thus, requires a longer recovery time. However, Fraxel offers more dramatic results when treating serious sun damage, prominent wrinkles and crow’s feet, acne scarring, brown spots and hyperpigmentation. Clear & Brilliant uses a less intense laser so it is gentler on the skin. Clear & Brilliant is perfect for maintaining healthy skin and treating superficial skin conditions, such as, fine lines and wrinkles, and minor sun damage.

Why CLEARLIFT™?

Clearlift Charleston, SC
ClearLift™ uses Q-Switched advanced laser technology that delivers gentle and effective energy in fractions to trigger the skin to respond with collagen production. Safe for all skin types, ClearLift helps tighten the skin and pores and reverses the superficial signs of aging. Candidates with signs of aging and or sun damage find this fast, non-surgical treatment, often called a “lunchtime facelift,” a gentle alternative to treat the most delicate areas of the face, neck and décolleté.
 
ClearLift is based upon a unique method of energy dispersion, emitting narrow pulse widths with multiple peaks of energy, resulting in greater efficiency and patient comfort. ClearLift delivers acoustic shock waves to the target area through high laser intensities in nanosecond pulses. This mechanical Q- Switched effect creates a controlled dermal wound. The treatment addresses:
  • Skin imperfections
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Multi-color tattoos
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Loose or saggy skin
  • Lightening dark areas under eyes
  • And more

ClearLift is virtually painless, completed in as little as 20 minutes, with no downtime. You can resume normal activities immediately. ClearLift is a gradual process with lifting and tightening and skin rejuvenation visible over the course of several weeks.
