Laser Skin Resurfacing and Skin Tightening

The outer layer of the skin bears the brunt of the outside world. Aging and sun exposure can result in wrinkles, discolorations, and uneven skin tone. However, fresh and healthy skin is waiting just underneath the surface of the face. Harsh textures, discolorations, and irregularities are only a mask covering healthier facial skin. Skin fractional CO2 laser can correct these and related concerns with one simple treatment. Dr.Goravanchi, performs laser skin rejuvenation in his office to help the skin reflect each patient’s inner vibrancy. SmartSkin treatments are safe and effective for most parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. SmartSkin laser treatment is especially effective for:


  • Softening lines, creases, and wrinkles
  • Improving uneven pigmentation, age spots, freckles, sun spots, and melisma
  • Providing effective skin resurfacing
  • Restoring youthful skin tone through increased collagen production
  • Shrinking enlarged pores
  • Erasing scars from surgery, acne, chicken pox, and stretch marks


The SmartSkin laser treats a fraction of the skin surface with tiny, pinpoint columns of laser energy. This technology does not impact adjacent areas, resulting in a faster recovery period. While most people experience only slight discomfort during these treatments, a topical anesthetic is available if the patient has any concerns. The length of treatment depends on the condition of the skin and the areas being addressed. Dr. Goravanchi can usually treat the entire face in about 15-20 minutes, then patients are able to go home. Patients should expect the skin to feel warm, look slightly puffy, and seem mildly sunburned for the first few days. Depending on the level of the treatment, patients will be able to return to their normal routine within 2-7 days. The improvements will be most noticeable after the skin has renewed itself and collagen production has increased, which can take several weeks to occur.
