Laser skin resurfacing is a process that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars, acne, redness, blotchiness, and other skin inconsistencies by removing layers of the epidermis with the assistance of laser technology. Undergoing this type of laser procedure can reverse many types of damage that result from sun exposure and other factors to reveal a fresher face.
There are many different types of lasers that can target a variety of skin conditions, including redness, rosacea, deep wrinkles, pores, veins, birthmarks, and more. Laser intensities vary as well, so if you would rather undergo three treatments with minimal downtime or a single laser treatment with a few days of downtime, both options are there. If you have a skin condition you think may benefit from a laser treatment, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation to find the best treatment plan for you.
Lasers are also ideal for relieving hair growth, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and general redness. If you are an ideal candidate for such procedures, Allison Clement, MD, and Amber Littlefield, FNP-C, at The Skin Studios offer an array of laser treatments that will take years off your appearance.

Laser hair removal is one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures, providing an option for those seeking to permanently remove unwanted hair. The use of concentrated light helps to remove excess hair by destroying the hair follicle, blocking hair from growing back. While early laser procedures were generally only effective at the removal of hair on those with dark hair and light skin, modern laser hair removal treatments are now able to successfully target follicles on individuals with dark pigmentation as well.
One of the reasons laser hair removal is so popular is because it saves patients from having to shave or wax regularly, which can be expensive and time consuming. While laser hair removal requires several sessions for full results, in the long run most patients find it to be a great investment. Laser hair removal is also not just for women – many men find that it is the best solution for unwanted back, chest, or beard hair.
Excess hair can be a distressing issue for many women and men who seek to find effective solutions for removing unwanted hair. Dr. Clement and Nurse Practitioner Littlefield at The Skin Studios can provide the right laser service and advice for those seeking solutions for smoother, fuzz-free skin.
Fractional resurfacing involves the use of ablative or non-ablative procedures to help revive tired, aging skin. This particular laser skin resurfacing treatment can do wonders for treating mild to severe skin conditions with symptoms such as dark spots and deep wrinkles.
There are two types of fractionated laser resurfacing: ablative and non-ablative. Non-ablative lasers are gentler and require little to no downtime, although they may require more sessions for full results. Ablative lasers can achieve the most dramatic results after a single laser skin resurfacing treatment, but you will probably need to take a few days off work to recover. Our Fractora fractionated laser treatment provides targeted bipolar RF energy at selectable skin depths for customizable skin treatment without the downtime and prolonged redness often associated with comparable fractional CO2 laser care. Thanks to its customizable fractional energy treatments, Fractora can treat everything from minor skin tone correction to deep textural concerns for effective and long-lasting laser treatment for each person’s individual needs.
During your consultation, your skin concerns will be assessed, as well as your tolerance for discomfort and downtime. Taking these factors into account, the best laser treatment plan will be decided upon. In some cases, a more comprehensive plan may be best, with a combination of lasers, injectables, skin tightening laser treatments, or others. Find out more about laser dermatology at InModeMD.com.
IPL, or intense pulsed light, photofacials are a wonderful treatment for patients who want to revitalize their skin, reduce redness, even skin tone and texture, or reduce brown spots. IPL is not technically a laser, but it works in much the same way as one, using light energy to help improve skin condition. Many dermatologists recommend having an IPL treatment every 6 months to help maintain youthful, beautiful skin.
IPL works best for those suffering from blotchiness or freckles and inflammation caused by sun damage. While IPL is beneficial for various skin types, those with dark skin should take caution, as individualized treatment plans should be created to prevent any complications that may arise from darker skin types.
With the use of new and improved technology, skin resurfacing laser treatments are quick and easy without the need for in-patient care. If you are concerned that your skin is showing signs of unsightly wear and tear, then you should consider a consultation with Dr. Clement and Nurse Practitioner Littlefield at The Skin Studios, who specializes in providing clients with renewed, refreshed, and revitalized skin.
