Laser Skin Resurfacing
'Turn Back the Clock' in the Philadelphia Area
Cross Medical Group is pleased to offer laser skin resurfacing in Philadelphia and on the Main Line in Villanova to clear up your skin and turn back the clock without surgery. Aging is often most visible in the skin. As part of the aging process, skin becomes saggy, pores become enlarged, and fine lines evolve into deeper wrinkles. The effects of sun damage and pollution are often seen on our faces, as they typically change the tone and texture of our complexion.
Our experienced and trained aestheticians will suggest a combination of lasers for laser skin resurfacing to address the skin conditions you are most concerned about.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Rejuvenates the Skin
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that removes a layer of the skin to activate the healing process. As laser energy creates microscopic damage to the skin, the body will respond by boosting collagen production as part of the natural healing process. A fresh and healthy skin layer will be formed that is firmer, even toned, and radiant. The Joule dual laser system combines two different lasers to customize the treatment. Most treatment plans have a short downtime and are not painful.
Laser Peels at Cross Medical Group
To get the best results with Joule, we will recommend one of these three Joule treatments: the Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser, Micro Laser Peel, and Nano Laser Peel.
Halo: Hybrid Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
With Halo laser skin resurfacing, we can reverse the aging process and maintain a "younger you" for the long term. This hybrid fractional laser uses a combination of wavelengths. Halo improves the skin's structure, leads to a natural increase of hyaluronic acid, stimulates new collagen production, and restores a healthy radiance to the skin. This results in skin that is rejuvenated and radiating with energy. In the case of deeper lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, multiple laser skin resurfacing treatments are advised.
The Halo laser is often compared to the Fraxel Laser, leaving people confused as to which of the two is better. Based on our experience, we prefer Halo for laser skin resurfacing, as it proves to be more effective, less painful, and requires shorter downtime. At Cross Medical Group in Philadelphia and Main Line, we only offer patients technologies that we have tested and have proved to work well on patients with similar conditions.
Micro Laser Peel for Superficial Skin Peeling
A Micro Laser Peel can minimize unwanted skin deviations, such as freckles, sun or liver spots, fine lines, and superficial discoloration. This type of peel provides a superficial skin peeling. The results of a Micro Laser Peel start to show within three to five days after the treatment. Typically, after one week, you can resume your normal activities. Your skin will look brighter, radiant, and more alive.
Nano Laser Peel Works to Renew Your Skin
The Nano Laser Peel treatment is a gentler, more superficial version of the Micro Laser Peel. It removes a very thin skin layer with precision. It goes deeper than chemical peels and microdermabrasion, but it does not overheat and damage the skin messenger cells that play a part in the collagen remodeling process.
