Does your reflection in the mirror look older than you feel? Laser skin resurfacing may be the perfect solution for a new mirror image.

What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses lasers, or light energy, to correct and treat a number of skin issues. At Coast Regenerative Medicine, we use the Cutera xeo®, a cutting-edge laser skin resurfacing system considered by many professionals to be the best on the market.
Laser skin resurfacing uses a safe, infrared light that delivers heat into the dermis deep below the surface of the skin, while keeping the top skin surface cool and protected.
After skin resurfacing, your skin is left smoother and rejuvenated, with a healthy, more youthful glow. Laser skin resurfacing is also highly effective in permanently removing unwanted hair in different areas of the body.
Here are just a few of the many skin problems laser skin resurfacing is able to diminish or eliminate completely:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Scar reduction, including acne scars
- Hair removal
- Skin tags
- Port Wine Stains
- Unsightly facial or leg veins
What Does Skin Resurfacing Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
Laser skin resurfacing cost varies from one individual to another, with several contributing variables taken into consideration, including the complexity and extent of the treatment.
A personalized treatment plan is created during your complimentary consultation and an accurate cost can be given to you then.
Most insurance companies will not cover cosmetic procedures, so it’s best to check with your provider to see if laser skin resurfacing is covered.
At Coast Regenerative Medicine, we try to keep procedures affordable and accessible for all of our clients. To that end, we offer complimentary consultations and financing options through CareCredit®.
How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?
Depending on the type of laser used, skin resurfacing is typically accomplished with a handheld device moved slowly over the area to be treated, delivering heat through the upper layers of the skin to reach the deeper dermis layers below.
The intense heat of the laser beam triggers collagen production in the body which helps to rejuvenate the skin. It can also be used to help tighten sagging skin, removing unwanted hair and for some vascular therapies, such as facial veins, leg veins, and venous lakes.
For some issues, multiple sessions of laser skin resurfacing may be necessary for optimal results.
What Are the Benefits of Skin Resurfacing?
There are many benefits of laser skin resurfacing, and the benefits vary depending on the issues being treated. Most patients are quite pleased with their skin resurfacing results, with best results seen after multiple treatments. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Dramatic improvements in skin tone and texture
- Diminished appearance of skin damage, dark spots, and wrinkles
- Healthier, glowing, more youthful appearance of the skin
- Reduced appearance of prominent blood vessels
- Improved appearance of scars
- Removal of unwanted hair in certain areas of the body
- Removal of warts and other unwanted skin tags
Am I a Good Candidate for Skin Resurfacing?
If you’re an adult in reasonably good health, and have noticeable lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and forehead, you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. Ideal candidates will also have non-oily skin that still has some degree of elasticity.
During your initial consultation, the doctor will help make sure you have realistic expectations that align with what laser skin resurfacing is capable of providing. You’ll also come to an agreement about whether or not laser skin resurfacing is your best option for achieving the aesthetic goals you have in mind. If not, alternative treatment options that may serve you better can be explored.
