Take Years off Your Appearance with Laser Skin Resurfacing from Tampa Surgical Arts

Laser Skin Resurfacing The aging process can be unkind to many of us. As collagen production slows down, we can develop wrinkles, lines, dull skin, and more on our face, which can lead us to look older than we are and feeling less confident about our appearance. Thankfully, there’s a solution – and it doesn’t involve going under the knife or receiving dozens of injections. Instead, you can choose laser skin resurfacing, a nonsurgical, non-injectable procedure that can take years off your face in only 30 minutes. This medical spa procedure is one we’re glad to provide at Tampa Surgical Arts in Tampa Bay, Florida, and we’ll be happy to discuss the benefits with you.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing works by enhancing your body’s collagen production, which is essential in helping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a protein found in the layers of our skin that gives it elasticity and firmness. It’s abundant in children and teenagers, giving them youthful, glowing skin. Collagen production can begin to deplete as soon as your mid-twenties, and both genetics and lifestyle factors play into how fast collagen loss occurs. For example, those who spend more time in the sun will find that the collagen loss happens at a much quicker rate than someone who constantly slathers on sunscreen every time they go outside.

Laser skin resurfacing delivers heat from the top layer of the skin all the way to the bottom layer to stimulate collagen production and take years off your appearance. It’s one of the most natural and minimally invasive ways to refresh your skin and make you look younger.

How Is Laser Rejuvenation Performed?

There are a number of laser rejuvenation procedures but the one most popular at Tampa Surgical Arts is CO2 laser resurfacing, also called fractionated CO2. This procedure uses continuous light beams to deliver heat in a scanning pattern to destroy thin layers of skin cells while leaving the surrounding tissue intact and unharmed. This type of laser rejuvenation is best for the following types of skin issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Sun spots
  • Moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin color
  • Benign pigmented lesions
  • Enlarged oil glands on the nose
  • Poor skin texture
  • And more

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing restores your skin’s appearance, making it brighter, smoother, and more even. It is a natural way to encourage collagen production, which will help to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.

Plus, since it’s an entirely nonsurgical procedure that takes less than an hour to complete, you won’t need to rearrange your entire schedule to get it done. You’ll be able to get back to your normal activities quickly.

What Is the Treatment Protocol for Laser Rejuvenation at Tampa Surgical Arts?

Laser Skin ResurfacingDuring your appointment at Tampa Surgical Arts, we will assess your skin and find out more about the issues you’ve been experiencing and the type of results you’re looking for. In many cases, simple CO2 laser resurfacing is the treatment protocol we’ll recommend, especially if you’re looking to get rid of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and other surface-level issues. In other cases, full laser therapy is necessary, a procedure we can talk to you further about if needed.

We can schedule your laser rejuvenation during this initial consult. If opting for CO2 laser resurfacing, the appointment will take 30 minutes or less. You’ll be seen by our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, or a physician assistant who will numb the treatment area using a local anesthetic before beginning the laser therapy. In certain cases the procedure will be done under general anesthesia, depending on the depth of the laser resurfacing.  When the laser skin resurfacing is complete, a surgical dressing will be applied to your face to protect the treated area.

What Should I Expect After Laser Rejuvenation?

The healing process after laser rejuvenation is similar to what you might expect from a facial. The surgical dressing must remain in place for 24 hours, and then you can begin to use topical treatments on the area. Your skin may feel tender and it may look like you have a sunburn for the first few days after the procedure. Within five days, you should feel fully recovered and enjoy the noticeable results with the fractional laser. If you received a full laser rejuvenation, the recovery period takes 12 to 14 days.

As long as you take care of your skin and limit your time in the sun, you can expect your skin to continue to improve for up to six months after the procedure.

BELLY BUTTON AESTHETIC

One of the biggest giveaways that someone has had body work done is the belly button.

If it looks scrunched, torqued, or does not match the rest of the body; it might indicate a procedure was done.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES the importance of belly button aesthetics.

SOFT VS HARD

Fat transfer to the buttocks can make the buttocks firm for the first weeks while the body is healing; this is normal.

Eventually, the buttocks will get soft and have a natural look and feel.

Some will say, "Why does the butt look hard?"

A couple of issues:
1. "Hardness" is typically a tactile sensation, not a visual sensation.

2. Unless the client is actively making their butt shake/ jiggle/ bounce, the buttocks won`t move if they are turning slowly during a video.

Buttocks implants can sometimes feel hard; in skilled hands with a composite fat graft, the butt should have a natural feel.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how fat transfer can achieve a natural appearance of the buttocks.

Procedure: 4D Ab Fine Tuning (Internal/External RF) and BBL tune-up⚡️🍑

BRUISING / RED SPOTS

It is normal to have bruising and redness after any procedure.

This is an interesting topic and there are two common responses:

1. "Wow! So much bruising and red. It must hurt! 😭"

2. "Why isn`t there any bruising?! The surgeon wasn`t aggressive enough! 😡"

Just as most things in life; it is impossible to please everyone.

What I can do is educate.

This beautiful client is having a typical post-op course and is about 6 weeks out.

Yes, we do fat transfer to the breasts.

The best candidate is someone with no laxity (no loose skin/stretch marks) and who wants natural perkiness.

Fat transfer is best for those who want an increase of about 1-1.5 cup size; any more is best done with an implant.

This beautiful client had uneven breasts and tight skin.

She wanted a natural and balanced look.

HIP SLAYER

The most challenging area to add volume is the hips/laterals.

The skin can be extremely tight in this area and this means less fat uptake.

This beautiful client previously had a tummy tuck and lipo by another provider; she came to see me for a revision and fat transfer to her hips.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they understand how to build hips.

CORRECTIVE CASES

A corrective case is one that involves reducing irregularities from a previous procedure.

Most of the procedures we do are revisions, meaning the primary surgery was done by another provider.

In the procedure detail, at the end of the caption, you will get most of the information that you need about the case.

This beautiful client came to see us for a revision after having lipo elsewhere.

Her results are a perfect example of how maintaining a healthy lifestyle will get you next level results!

ULTRASOUND GUIDED BBL

Using an ultrasound helps the surgeon see important structures during fat transfer and is a tool that can increase client safety.

There are no major downsides to using an ultrasound.

There is an added cost to the facility and a slight learning curve to using an ultrasound.

Some surgeons do not use ultrasound and obtain great results, which is fine for them.

Most experienced BBL surgeons would agree that ultrasound definitely adds safety and certainly does not cause harm.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they perform ultrasound guided fat transfer to the buttocks.

SITTING AFTER BBL

The skin on the laterals/hip dip area is typically the tightest in the buttock area.

For those who want this area "filled," sometimes a round 2 BBL is required.

Even in the best hands, a round 2 fat transfer might not fully add enough volume to the hip dip.

This beautiful client is over 6 months out and had great fat uptake in the laterals after one BBL.

She has been using her BBL pillow the entire time!

FINESSE SCULPTING

BBL SWELLING

The journey of body sculpting is typically filled with the `ups and downs` of panicking about butt size.

The most common thing we hear on day 1 is "my butt is way too big!"

Most often, it settles in a few weeks, and then we commonly hear at a few months, "I wish it was bigger, can I get a round 2"

This beautiful client wanted a natural appearance and is now at her final buttock contour.

A select few can have multiple procedures done at the same time.

@dr.tolomeo did her tummy tuck and I performed the BBL.
