These days, many medical spas and plastic surgeons use laser treatments to treat the most minor skin imperfections. At The Lucas Center, we typically only recommend thermal agents (i.e. lasering) for patients with deep, severe acne scars. If you feel you’d benefit from laser treatments, we recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss your goals with Dr. Lucas and his team of skincare experts.
If your scars are less severe, or if you struggle with other skin imperfections, you may want to consider a consultation for skin resurfacing through dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, or a chemical peel. These alternative options create healthy, natural-looking results without the added discomfort or expenses associated with laser treatments.
With dermabrasion, Dr. Lucas can create clearer, smoother skin by using a small device to selectively sand down the outer layer of your skin. With microdermabrasion or dermaplaning, Dr. Lucas uses a diamond tip applicator and suction to buff away dead or damaged skin, unwanted facial hair, and/or minor skin imperfections (such as fine lines and sun damage) on the surface of your skin.
Though slightly different in technique and results, skin resurfacing treatments are great for men and women of all ages who are interested in softer, more radiant skin. All skin resurfacing treatments are affordable, done in-office, and result in minimal redness and down time.
Don’t let your skin hold you back any longer. Take the first step toward a more confident you by scheduling your personalized consultation with Dr. Lucas today.
