Laser skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that uses light energy to remove the damaged outer layer of your skin. Dr. Mei uses the Cynosure Icon™ 1540 fractional laser, which treats a precisely targeted section of your skin at a time.
The laser also heats the tissue underneath your skin’s surface, stimulating collagen regeneration. As the skin heals, the new layer of skin replaces the damaged layer, revealing a tighter, more radiant appearance.

Dr. Mei explains everything you need to know about the procedure and how to prepare beforehand. She also does everything she can to make you comfortable.
First, she applies numbing cream or uses a local anesthetic, depending on your preference. When you’re ready, she runs a wand over the treatment area. You may feel a slight stinging sensation from the laser pulses.
The laser skin rejuvenation treatment takes less than an hour for most areas; for larger areas, the procedure could take up to two hours.
After the procedure is over, Dr. Mei bandages the treated area and provides detailed aftercare instructions. She may also send you home with medication.
Following treatment, your face might feel like it’s sunburned, and within a few days, it will start to peel. After 2-3 weeks, your skin should be fully healed, and you’ll have a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
Laser skin rejuvenation is an effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. You may notice benefits right away and continue to see improvements up to a year later.
Plus, it provides all these results without surgery, injections, or invasive therapy. The treatment also doesn’t restrict you from your normal activities.
