Artemedica in Santa Rosa offers laser resurfacing services. Laser resurfacing (also called a deep laser peel) is a surgical procedure used to improve the texture and appearance of aged skin, deep lines or wrinkles, and acne scars. Laser resurfacing may also be used to treat pre-cancerous lesions. With his many years of research in the field of cosmetic lasers, Dr. Victor Lacombe is a surgeon you can trust to perform your laser resurfacing procedure.
Laser resurfacing uses a light beam, which removes the upper layers of the aged or damaged skin at controlled levels, making the procedure safe and predictable when performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Lacombe. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. The goal is to remove sun damage, rebuild collagen, and smooth deeper wrinkles.
Protecting your skin from the sun is extremely important following laser resurfacing. Ask Dr. Lacombe to recommend a sunblock with adequate UVA and UVB protection.

Often, laser resurfacing is performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures in Santa Rosa, like facelifts.
