What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At the John Bull Center, laser skin resurfacing is performed using Pearl Fusion, harnessing the resurfacing power of the Pearl laser along with the deep collagen stimulation of the Pearl Fractional. These highly advanced lasers vaporize skin cells by emitting bursts of radiation that are absorbed by the water in these cells. This combination is effective for treating acne scars, crow’s feet and deeper wrinkles.
This allows Dr. Bull to treat skin imperfections rapidly and accurately, one layer at a time and without bleeding. Meanwhile, your underlying skin tissue is preserved. This treatment leaves our patients with younger looking skin, allowing them to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside.
Why Dr. Bull?
Dr. Bull is a highly accomplished plastic surgeon who has dedicated his career to helping patients achieve their aesthetic dreams.
At The John Bull Center, we understand that considering whether to undergo cosmetic treatment is a complex decision. Dr. Bull and his team work hard to provide patients with a soothing environment where they can feel completely comfortable and cared for. That’s what makes the John Bull Center Laser MediSpa different from other practices.
With Dr. Bull, patients will spend time with him one-on-one to discuss their procedures, what to expect and what it takes to achieve the best outcome. There are no rushed consultations at The John Bull Center. Dr. Bull carefully listens to each patient describe her or his desires, needs, and concerns. This information helps him develop highly individualized treatment plans geared toward helping patients look and feel their best.
Am I a Candidate For Laser Resurfacing?
The best candidates for laser skin resurfacing are people with tiny wrinkles, acne scars, and other minor skin imperfections. Laser resurfacing also can improve sun-damaged and acne- scarred skin, which can be physically and emotionally painful for many patients.
Our laser produces mild, long-lasting change in skin texture and tone and can be used to treat the entire face.
Dr. Bull will direct the laser beam toward your skin. The laser quickly and accurately vaporizes layers of skin. This leaves healthy cells intact to regenerate the layers removed with healthier cells. This also stimulates the skin’s collagen to remodel and heal – without wrinkles and irregularities. The procedure is done with oral sedation and topical numbing agents for patient comfort.
After your laser skin treatment, Dr. Bull will cover your face with a soothing ointment. Patients are asked to wash their face with a special solution for seven days after the procedure unless treated on the face or neck, which may require up to 10 days of solution wash. After your initial healing occurs, you may see redness that will fade in a few weeks to a light pink color. Cosmetics can be used to camouflage these skin changes.
Discoloration can appear for three to six weeks after the procedure. But with the use of skin creams, this discoloration should disappear in one to three months in most patients, although results can vary.*
Your skin also may be tender, so Dr. Bull can prescribe medications to keep you comfortable. Other medications are available to help prevent infection and speed healing.
