Many people are looking for ways to rejuvenate their skin without surgery. They may find the ideal solution with laser skin resurfacing at Alta Vista Dermatology. We provide a number of laser skin resurfacing treatments to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin texture and tone.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a versatile cosmetic treatment that can eliminate skin imperfections, create a younger appearance, and produce a more even skin tone. This is done by using laser energy to carefully remove damaged skin one layer at a time, revealing the healthy, beautiful skin underneath. At Alta Vista Dermatology, we use the Halo Fractional Laser and the Erbium Sciton Laser for laser skin resurfacing treatments.
What is the Halo Fractional Laser?
Halo fractional laser is a treatment done right in our dermatological practice with dual laser technology. This provides deep dermal rejuvenation and epidermal renewal all at once. It can remove sun damage, treating the skin’s overall appearance and health, while reducing texture and tone issues such as fine lines and wrinkles. This versatile treatment can also be adjusted based on the needs of the patient. Fewer appointments can be made with more aggressive treatment, though patients will need to assess downtime that may be necessary during the healing process. Milder treatments can be done to reduce downtime, but will need more sessions for similar results.
What is the Erbium Laser?
At Alta Vista Dermatology, we specialize in using the Erbium Sciton Laser, which is the most advanced laser skin resurfacing system available. By utilizing laser resurfacing technology, we can rejuvenate your skin and deliver a more youthful looking appearance. In comparison to older laser resurfacing technology, the treatment we provide requires less downtime and is associated with fewer risks. We use this laser for the following:
- Skin rejuvenation
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes and lips
- Deep skin peeling
- Pigmented lesions caused by excessive sun exposure or aging
- Acne scarring, including pitted acne scars, atrophic acne scars, and back acne
- Improvement of the appearance of superficial scars
- Reduction of age spots on the face
- Reduction of blotchy skin coloring
- Reduction of hyperpigmentation
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Age Spot Removal
Age spots are small patches of discoloration, and commonly occur in people who spend a lot of time in the sun. Although harmless, many people would like to have age spot removal treatments to achieve a more youthful appearance and an even skin tone. Age spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation that can be treated with laser skin resurfacing. To learn more, visit our page on hyperpigmentation treatment.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Brown Spot Removal
Brown spots are a common condition that can occur due to hyperpigmentation. They are small patches of skin that are darker than the skin around it. While brown spots are not dangerous, they affect the appearance of the skin and can lead people to pursue brown spot removal treatments for cosmetic reasons. Laser skin resurfacing at Alta Vista Dermatology is effective for brown spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation. To learn more, visit our page on hyperpigmentation treatment.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Laser Skin and Nail Fungus
When nails make contact with fungus or bacteria, it is possible that the nail itself could become infected or that the skin beneath the nail will be affected. Most nail infections occur on the toenails due to the closed, moist environment when the feet are in shoes. Toes do not have the same amount of blood flow as the fingers, putting them at a greater risk for infection. However serious your infection, laser skin resurfacing can be an effective solution.

Laser Skin Resurfacing for Sun Damage
Sun damage develops on the skin due to frequent sun exposure, especially when sunscreen is not worn. Sun damage can appear as brown spots, freckles, and age spots. Although it is usually harmless, sun damage can produce precancerous growths in rare occasions. If you are concerned that you are developing skin cancer, you may want to consider a full body skin exam or skin cancer treatment. For sun spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation that occurs as a result of sun damage, laser skin resurfacing can be an effective treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing for Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks typically occur due to a rapid growth or body changes, which stretches the skin. This usually happens due to pregnancy, bodybuilding, and puberty. Like other cosmetic conditions, these are not harmful to your health, but some people may find them undesirable. If you have stretch marks that you would like to remove, you may be able to achieve the results you desire with laser skin resurfacing at Alta Vista Dermatology.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Wrinkle Treatment
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular solution for wrinkle treatment, which we frequently perform with great success. With the Erbium Laser, we are able to carefully treat moderate to severe wrinkles in the skin without damaging the surrounding areas. This allows for a smoother recovery after treatment, while still delivering dramatic rejuvenation results.
