It’s Time to Forgive the Sins of Summer

The sun has many health benefits, but a summer of sun exposure can do significant damage to your skin. We can help you “forgive” the sins of summer, such as sun damage that creates fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

We can also address the body’s natural aging process and environmental factors that can make skin look older than it really is.

What’s more, fall and winter are the perfect times for laser treatments because you naturally spend less time in the sun. Now that the summer months are over take a look at some of the laser resurfacing options at the Plastic Surgery Center and PSC Aesthetics.


The BBL® HERO™ delivers light energy to stimulate your skin cells to regenerate and restore your skin’s youthful appearance. With this amazing treatment, we can eliminate the visible signs of aging, such as age spots, sunspots, freckles, redness, and dull-looking skin.

We can treat you head to toe, and the HERO provides impressive results while enjoying little to no downtime.

The treatment uses intense pulsed light to target the pigment within your skin. It flashes specialized light as our laser technicians quickly move it across your treatment area. The pigment is initially darkened, helping you know that you had an optimal treatment.

Within the next several days, your body’s natural healing process removes the pigmented cells and replaces them with fresh, new, undamaged cells.

Patients can generally tolerate the treatment without any anesthetic numbing cream. A typical patient requires a minimum of three treatments and most see results in two to four weeks.

Halo™ Laser

Halo restores your skin’s youthful glow, and our patients see great results with little downtime. Each patient has unique skin conditions, and we can customize treatments and downtime to a patient’s needs. For example, if you need to return to work tomorrow, you can have a light treatment that creates smooth, vibrant skin.

If patients really want the “wow” experience, we use a more intense treatment that provides a youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.

Patients can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a more extended period of time. Either way, they get beautiful results that improve over time.

Halo addresses skin and sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines, wrinkles, visible signs of aging, large pore size, discoloration, and scars.

MicroLaser Peel™

With the MicroLaser Peel, we remove the top layer of your skin, so you have fresh-looking and less tired-looking skin with fewer wrinkles and improved color evenness. You can expect little pain and downtime from this treatment.

The laser beam removes a very thin layer of skin, eliminating the damaged cells that make your skin look tired and old. As your skin heals, fresh skin cells grow, and your resurfaced skin glows.

The MicroLaser Peel addresses areas on the face, neck, chest, and hands and improves mild wrinkles, scars, keratosis, sun damage (e.g., freckles), and pigment irregularities.

Most patients see terrific results in just one treatment. Although, some patients may need more than one treatment depending on their concerns. We personalize a plan based on your needs and your goals. We may also choose to combine the MicroLaser Peel™ with other aesthetic procedures for enhanced benefits.

Pixel CO2 Laser

The CO2 laser can help you look younger and clear years of sun damage. These short laser treatments address a wide range of skin imperfections on your face, neck, and décolletage, including deep wrinkles and scars. Treatments improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, age spots, hyperpigmentation, skin texture, and acne scarring.

The Pixel CO2 laser uses a fractional delivery method to create pixel-sized perforations in your skin.

The micro-injury sites then begin healing, remodeling your collagen, fading scars, and improving your skin’s texture. With minimal downtown, no anesthesia, a quick treatment time, and a relatively short healing period, you’ll notice a marked improvement in your skin after the CO2 laser.


Ultherapy is a unique ultrasound procedure that lifts and tightens your skin naturally, from the inside out, and in a completely non-invasive way. It lifts and tones loose, lax skin without surgery! While it differs from our lasers regarding the expected outcome, it is still a beneficial treatment.

Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin on your neck, under your chin, and on your eyebrow and improves lines and wrinkles on your chest. It does this using ultrasound energy to lift and tighten your skin naturally without downtime by stimulating your own collagen production. You notice real results over two or three months as new collagen works to lift, tighten, and smooth your skin.
