What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with a laser at Ball Dentistry is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light to remove damaged skin cells layer by layer. The procedure is used for addressing facial lines and wrinkles and for diminishing skin irregularities like acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Also called a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is a great treatment for patients who want clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the needs of the skin, the treatment will be customized accordingly. There is little downtime needed with most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any questions or concerns can be reviewed with a member of our staff during the consultation.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At Ball Dentistry, we know your skin could get increasingly dehydrated, flat, and lifeless with time. Through laser skin resurfacing treatments, we can give our Indianapolis, IN patients a way to achieve new skin with an option that offers many amazing benefits:
- Smoothing of patchy skin surface
- Improved confidence concerning your skin's aesthetic
- Reduced visibility of scars and pigmentation
- Tightening of pores
- Minimized look of creases and lines
What is the Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique?
When you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper skin resurfacing session, you may be asked to use a retinoid product for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser appointment. This helps prep the skin for maximum results. Medication will be suggested prior to the treatment to help minimize any sensation for greater relaxation throughout your session. If your complexion needs mild improvement, a local anesthetic may be used to numb treated areas where the laser will target. For the whole face or deeper laser treatments, a type of sedation may be necessary. Throughout the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over your skin, precisely targeting the designated sections for rejuvenation. You may feel warmth from the laser followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser works to eliminate damaged skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
Laser skin resurfacing costs vary depending on the treatment type you choose. In your consultation, Dr. Ball will ask about your skin issues and goals before discussing the different types of laser resurfacing available treatments. Then, she will help you decide on your treatment and talk to you about costs. Ball Dentistry often offers treatment specials and packages, so ask about current specials during your consultation.
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
Dr. Ball can help you choose which laser resurfacing option fits your concerns and goals in your consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, any skin issues, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery may also be an important consideration when choosing your treatment type. When unsure, it is better to select a milder treatment to see how you like your outcomes and decide if you want something stronger for your second treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Ball or a member of her staff will discuss how you can help your skin heal after a resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is don't pick or peel your skin. Doing this could cause lasting damage like scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We will recommend cream to help soothe your skin.
