Fractional Laser Resurfacing
A deep, restorative treatment thats great for…
- Wrinkles and Lines
- Acne Scars
- Stretch Marks
- Skin Laxity
- Sun Damage
Fractional laser resurfacing with our Edge One CO2 laser is a highly effective treatment for deep wrinkles, scars, and other signs of aging. During the procedure the laser is used to create microscopic channels in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. This leads to the production of new collagen and elastin, which can help restore the skin’s elasticity and firmness in addition to yielding clearer, smoother skin. In this way, it can be an excellent treatment for acne scars and stretch marks.
Fractional laser resurfacing can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Patients typically experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort after treatment but this is expected resolve well within a few days. Results can be seen after just one treatment, although multiple treatments may be needed for optimal results.
IPL and BBL Treatments
- Proactive Anti-Aging
- Sun Damage and Brown Spots
- Fine Lines
- Broken Blood Vessels
IPL (intense pulsed light), also referred to as “BBL” (broadband light) treatments use targeted light energy to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging. Unlike fractional laser resurfacing, IPL treatments do not penetrate as deeply into the skin, making them a good “middle” option for patients with sensitive skin or mild to moderate signs of aging. It is also great for those who are looking for more proactive anti-aging treatments and those who want to ensure little-to-no downtime before resuming their regular schedule. In addition, IPL treatment is well suited for treating rosacea, areas with broken blood vessels, and melasma (generally experienced as post-pregnancy skin discoloration).
During an IPL treatment, pulses of light are directed at the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular renewal. Patients may experience some mild redness after the treatment, but this typically subsides within a few hours to a day.

A comprehensive approach to skin Rejuvenation that’s great for…
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture

At Luna Dermatology, our laser facial treatments with Laser Genesis offer a gentle approach to skin rejuvenation. Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser that helps to stimulate collagen production and improve overall skin texture and tone. Laser facials with the Laser Genesis treatment also works to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, resulting in a smoother complexion.
Our laser facial services are often referred to as “lunchtime lasers” because they can be done quickly, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately afterward. Our laser facials are typically performed as a series of treatments for optimal results, with the exact number of sessions varying depending on individual skin concerns and desired outcomes.
What to Expect Before, During, and After Treatment
Before your laser skin resurfacing treatment, our dermatology team will conduct an assessment of your concerns and discuss your goals and expectations. We may recommend that you avoid certain medications or supplements in the days leading up to your treatment to achieve optimal results and reduce potential post-procedure downtime.
During the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort, but the treatments are generally well tolerated throughout the procedure. After the treatment, you may experience redness, mild swelling, and slight discomfort for a few hours up to a week, depending on the type of treatment you receive.
It is important to follow our team’s post-procedure instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly and to maximize the results of your treatment. This may include avoiding direct sun exposure, using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, and avoiding certain types of makeup and skincare products for a short period of time.
