What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with Moxi™ at Modern Medical Spa in Dallas, TX is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged surface skin layer by layer. The procedure is great for reducing facial wrinkles and lines and for improving skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Also known as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is a great treatment for patients who want clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the condition of the patient's complexion, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some recovery time associated with most laser skin resurfacing facials. Any questions or concerns can be reviewed with our medical team during your assessment and consultation.

"My entire life I have struggled with insecurities about my skin. I have dry skin with large pores and I have a very pale complexion. I am one week post procedure for the pixel laser and I honestly cannot believe the results. They told me it would take 3 to 6 weeks to see the optimal results and I cannot imagine my skin actually looking better than it already does. The office is so gorgeous and comfortable and spotless, not to mention every single staff member their treats you like your family and explain everything to you every step of the way. I would urge anyone out there to invest money in themselves if you struggle with the same issues that I have. And if you decide to make the investment I highly recommend modern medical spa. I’ve been to numerous different spas and had numerous different treatments and yet this is the best I have found."- A.H. / Google / Apr 25, 2021

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?
When choosing the best laser skin resurfacing procedure for your skin, our team will need to consider several factors. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for people who feel unhappy with their general complexion. This procedure can help treat skin imperfections, like:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Pigmentation issues
- Scaly patches
- Rough texture
- Other skin surface problems
However, we do not recommend laser skin resurfacing for anyone with very dark skin or active acne. It is also important to know that you will require a recovery period after your laser treatments. Depending on the skin's condition, some patients may require up to 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Before you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper skin resurfacing session, you may be given a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser procedure. This helps prepare the skin for more effective results. Medication may be prescribed prior to the procedure to help minimize discomfort so you can relax during your session. If your skin needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb treated areas of the face. For the full complexion or more intense laser treatments, a kind of sedation may be used. During the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over the skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for rejuvenation. At Modern Medical Spa, we use the Moxi laser platform, which allows us to treat patients of all skin types with little to no downtime. This state-of-the-art technology uses fractioned wavelengths in order to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen growth.
What to Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing
After milder resurfacing sessions with the Moxi laser, a healing ointment may be smoothed over the treated skin before you go home for your recovery. The treated skin will appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. Every patient needs to limit their sun exposure following their laser treatment and use sun protection throughout the day. Regardless of the intensity, the treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away. It's vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to keep from scarring and to protect your face from sun exposure. After the peeling has completed, the treated skin should feel smoother while also looking clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.
Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQ
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
Dr. David Genecov and our team at Modern Medical Spa will help you choose which resurfacing option is best for your concerns and goals during your consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the condition of your skin, any skin problems, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery may also be a deciding consideration when choosing your treatment type. When in doubt, it's best to try a lighter treatment, then assess your results and adjust as needed for your next treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Genecov or a member of his team will give you recommendations on how you can speed skin healing after a resurfacing treatment. The top rule is to not pick or peel flaking skin. This can create lasting damage, like scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which include shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We can suggest an ointment to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the resurfacing options chosen for your procedure, you might need to wait several weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deep treatments will provide results that last a long time; however, they do need more time for recovery. You should talk to our team about how often you are willing to come back for treatments so we can take this into account when choosing a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
