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.

SKINNY BBL

The most challenging cases continue to be those who are skinny and want fat transfer.

Most providers reject skinny clients because of the high level of difficulty.

This beautiful client had a round 1 and round 2 BBL by myself to achieve this look.

***Who`s next? 🙋‍♀️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES what a skinny BBL is.

ABS

The most challenging procedure (and also the most rewarding for me) is ab fine tuning.

The critical part of this total body procedure is a natural look, which means: smooth dynamic contours, tight skin, and of course hidden entry points.

Stealth entry points separate those who dabble in body sculpting from those who specialize in it.

***Let me know in the comments/poll if you can see her entry points. 🥷

SKINNY WAIST + HIPS

Having a skinny waist is a trend that likely will not go out of style.

To create the optical illusion of a super tiny waist involves contouring the abdominal area plus fat transfer to the laterals.

Some are blessed with underlying bone structure to take this result to the next level.

This beautiful client had her first BBL elsewhere and came to see me for more curves plus ab fine tuning.

As always, maintaining a healthy lifestyle will produce the best results.

***Comment below if you like her look!

EXTERNAL SKIN TIGHTENING

The newest technology we have been offering clients is a combination of internal and external skin tightening.

The best candidate for this is someone with mild skin laxity, minimal stretch marks, and someone who does not want a skin removal procedure.

This beautiful client had multiple children and stretch marks.

The redness on the abdomen is from collagen tightening; this is normal and fades quickly.

Most clients experience a few weeks of social downtime.

***Game changer technology! ⚡️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES what external skin tightening can do for you.

Procedure: 4D SVELTE abs (Liposculpture 360 plus internal/external skin tightening)

Starting Foundation: 5`4", 126 lbs, BMI: 21.6

NATURAL HIGH DEFINITION

The most popular request we are getting now is for a natural look.

This has been our day 0 mantra.

Some think that HD liposculpture will `look fake.`

If done incorrectly by someone who doesn`t do the procedure routinely, then yes, it will look silly.

4D liposculpture is by far the most enjoyable procedure for me because it requires extreme attention to anatomical detail combined with artistry.

This athletic man wanted a sculpted and natural appearance.

***Let me know if you want to see the final outcome on this one 🔥

MASSAGE THERAPIST

Partnering with a knowledgeable therapist in the post-op period is extremely important.

FAT TRANSFER VS IMPLANTS

Currently, the most popular way to enhance the buttocks is with fat transfer.

The biggest advantage of fat transfer is the natural appearance and feel.

For some, gluteal implants might be the only option, but this procedure does involve a bigger scar, and sometimes the implant edge can be felt.

When done correctly, fat transfer will look balanced, proportionate, and natural.

***Do you think she has a natural look?

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES the difference between fat transfer and implants.

NATURAL ROUND 2 🍑

For some clients, a second round BBL is needed to create a balanced look.

There is a misconception that `if you get a round 2, it will look unnatural.`

It all depends on your starting foundation, how much fat takes on your body, and of course, surgeon technique.

A round 1 has an equal chance of looking natural as a round 2, when done correctly.

This beautiful client came to see me for round 2 BBL to add more projection and fill her hip dips.

SCULPTING FOR MEN

Body contouring for men has been growing in popularity.

Most men require total body sculpting to create a balanced look.

This means evaluating the chest, deltoid, arms, and entire torso (liposculpture 360) to create a unique plan.

***His results are the epitome of combining a healthy lifestyle with total body contouring.

WORKOUT FOR HIP DIPS

The most challenging buttock area to build for women in the gym is the `hip dip` area.

For some, this area will never improve even with the best booty workout.

Working out your glutes after fat transfer is definitely recommended, and it will help the `hip dips` look more natural.

This beautiful woman had a round 1 BBL by another surgeon and came to see me to help restore her naturally beautiful body.

***Her commitment to the gym and a healthy lifestyle helps maintain this look.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if you can workout to improve your hip dips.

WHAT ENTRY POINTS?

For some clients, having no clearly visible signs of having a procedure done is important.

Some others are okay with looking like Swiss cheese after their procedure.

Each client has their own preference, and that is okay.

Most of our clients prefer stealth entry ways.
