The natural aging process combined with long-term exposure to the sun can leave your skin looking older than it should, as unattractive fine lines, brown spots and deeper lines begin to appear.
To revitalize skin and achieve a younger look, many people have turned to chemical peels and dermabrasion to combat signs of aging.
At Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, Illinois, we’re proud to offer another anti-aging treatment: Laser skin resurfacing. Our laser resurfacing treatments are used to combat a variety of unwanted skin conditions that can appear as we get older.

Why Choose Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing vaporizes unwanted and unattractive older layers of skin. The technique gives patients smoother looking skin and takes years off their appearance.
A major benefit of laser technology is precision. It allows Rejuvenate’s skilled professionals to better customize treatment to meet the needs of our individual patients.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments use heat needed to cause the skin’s collagen to contract, giving patients what amounts to a mini-lift, but without invasive surgery and related recovery time.
Our laser skin resurfacing treatments are used to:
- Decrease the appearance of lines around your mouth.
- Reduce lines found around your eyes.
- Decrease the appearance of unwanted forehead lines.
Patients who undergo laser skin resurfacing may need to take pre-treatment medications. Staying out of the sun also is essential before and after treatment.
At Rejuvenate Med Spa, our skilled and helpful medical team will consult with you prior to treatment to discuss any concerns or questions you have about laser skin resurfacing.
After treatment, patients can expect to experience some redness and swelling, but these are temporary conditions. As with any laser treatment, there are risks associated with laser skin resurfacing. These can include pigmentation changes, infection, red skin or scarring. But the majority of our patients tell us their laser skin resurfacing treatment produces positive results with few side effects.
Most people report improved skin after a single treatment, but some patients may have to return for follow-up sessions, depending on their skin condition and aesthetic goals.
If you have experienced an increase in wrinkles, uneven skin, age spots or scars, laser skin resurfacing treatments may be the right procedure for you.
Conditions that laser skin resurfacing can help include:
- Lax skin.
- Acne scarring.
- Brown spots.
Laser skin resurfacing typically offers long-lasting results. But it won’t prevent your skin from aging. Resurfacing results can be extended by protecting your skin from the sun – and further damage.
At Rejuvenate Med Spa, our staff can help you create a skin-care plan that will help treatment results last longer.
Results patients receive from laser skin resurfacing often vary. Much depends on you. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, making proper diet choices and taking sun-protection measures all help produce better and longer-lasting results.
The majority of patients at Rejuvenate Med Spa recover quickly from laser skin resurfacing. You can expect to experience a bit of redness following your procedure, along with some peeling or crusting. But these conditions are temporary. Most people can apply makeup again a week after treatment.
Again, you should keep out of the sun until treated skin has fully healed. When you do go outside, we recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. It’s also a good idea to wear hats and clothing to cover treated areas.
We all get older and most of us will see signs of aging appear on our skin. But you can act now to slow down and combat the effects of via laser skin resurfacing.
