Skin Resurfacing in Plano, TX

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Advancements in science have made laser applications more precise and effective than ever before. Plano, TX facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho and his team use the SmartSkin CO2™ laser for laser skin resurfacing to achieve a variety of positive results. The treatment is used for skin rejuvenation, to remove fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, cheeks, or mouth, minimize scars from acne or trauma, stimulate collagen production to improve skin texture, and improve aged or sun-damaged skin. During a consultation, we will determine the appropriate number of treatments for the best results.

how does a laser skin resurfacing treatment work?

A numbing agent or local anesthetic can be given to the patient prior to laser skin resurfacing. The practitioner will place the CO2 laser on the treatment area for a short period of time before moving to the next section. Short pulses of light are emitted into the deeper layers of the skin to increase collagen production. The skin is removed layer by layer to stimulate the growth of new skin.

Since the skin can discharge a yellowish fluid, the doctor will apply an ointment to the area for protection. The treated area will also be dressed for further protection. After treatment, the patient usually experiences itchy, swollen, and raw skin. The doctor will provide detailed aftercare instruction. If crusting occurs, the patient should refrain from picking at the crust since it can lead to scars.

What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

Over-the-counter treatments and at-home remedies can only do so much when it comes to improving the appearance of your skin. If you want a more significant transformation, laser skin resurfacing may help. Our SmartSkin CO2 laser provides impressive outcomes with very little downtime. Additionally, this treatment can be customized to meet your specific needs and goals.

Best Doctor - I have been visiting Dr. Ho for several years. Many people may think that cosmetic treatments are for women only, but Dr. Ho has helped me to take advantage of the the latest treatments while looking natural.Most recently, I asked Dr. Ho to help me with a scar on the top of my nose. The scar is the aftermath of skin cancer removal. I have tried several laser treatments, but the scar remained visible. Dr. Ho proposed Bellafill filler to build the collagen underneath. After the first treatment my scar was practically erased! I could not believe the results! Thank you Dr. Ho for you! I couldn’t be more satisfied with the results!

Krystal is so awesome — so kind and super knowledgeable. After a thorough consultation, she recommended the Halo Laser treatment to address my skin concerns. She made the process and the actual procedure so easy and comfortable. The results have been wonderful and I’ll be back for more. Krystal is my go-to skincare pro!

I have been getting my fillers and Botox injections for over a year now with Acacia Servin in the Beyond Beautiful office, and she is incredible! In fact, I was just there on Tuesday, and I had a red carpet appearance on Wednesday night, and I didn't have even one bruise! I was so impressed with her - yet again. She is thorough and thoughtful with her recommendations, and listens to your concerns to decide what protocol to use. I always have the need for LESS downtime and Acacia and the entire staff at Beyond Beautiful work diligently to make sure I am always "on camera'" and "red carpet ready" at a moments notice because my schedule is so fluid. I have been a patient of Dr. Ho for almost 5 years now, and I am always impressed with how "up to date" and informed Dr. Ho and his entire staff are with regards to new procedures and surgical techniques. He is an excellent facial plastic surgeon as well. Look no further in Dallas and the surrounding areas. Beyond Beautiful is always on the cutting edge in skin care and anti-aging. I can't say enough positive reports about Dr. Ho, Acacia Servin, and Krystal Schlabs, who is the Morpheus, Halo and IPL/Moxi skin care expert. You will be extremely pleased with your appearance if you visit anyone at Beyond Beautiful. I am a customer for life!

I cannot recommend Beyond Beautiful enough! From the second I walked through the door, the entire staff and all of the practitioners were so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Acacia took so much time helping me figure out what treatments would be most beneficial for the results I was looking for, recommended amazing products, and was so knowledgable and available to answer all of my questions. She did amazing with my botox, I wouldn't trust anyone else! Krystal was absolutely amazing. I was nervous before doing the Halo laser for my first time, and she put me at such ease, explained everything to me until I felt comfortable, answered ALL of my questions, and has such a great personality. She took so much time with me and really knows everything about her field. She helped minimize any discomfort during the procedure and was available for any questions post-halo. It was such a great experience and I can't wait to refer all of my family and friends.

am i a candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser skin resurfacing:

  • Have aged skin with facial lines and wrinkles
  • Have sun-damaged skin
  • Have acne
  • Desire long-lasting results
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Laser resurfacing costs vary depending on the type of treatment you select. In your initial consultation, Dr. Ho or a member of our team will listen to your skin problems and goals before reviewing the types of resurfacing. Then, they will help you select your resurfacing treatment and talk to you about costs. Beyond Beautiful often runs treatment specials and discounted packages, so ask about current specials during your consultation.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?

Dr. Ho will help you choose which resurfacing treatment is best for your needs and goals during your initial consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, any skin issues, and how deep you want your treatment to go. The length of recovery time might also be an important factor when choosing your treatment type. When unsure, it is better to select a lighter treatment to see how you like your outcomes and decide if you want something stronger for your second treatment.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

Dr. Ho or someone on his staff will give you tips on ways to help your skin heal following your laser resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is don't peel or pick flaking skin. This could lead to long-term damage like scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We can suggest an ointment to help soothe your skin.

Should I get laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion?

After listening to your skin issues, Dr. Ho will help you choose whether laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion treatment is best for you. While all three rejuvenate the surface of the skin, each has benefits and drawbacks. In your consultation, Dr. Ho will explain each option and make a recommendation for your treatment plan.

How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?

Depending on the resurfacing options you and Dr. Ho choose for your treatment, you might need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deeper treatments will provide results that last a long time but will need a longer recovery period. You should talk to Dr. Ho about how often you want to come back for appointments so he can take this into account when suggesting a type of resurfacing in your initial consultation.

Does laser skin resurfacing hurt?

Dr. Ho and our entire staff are completely dedicated to prioritizing your comfort, safety, and satisfaction during this cosmetic procedure. We now offer the PRO-NOX system to ensure your comfort.

With the PRO-NOX Nitrous Oxide Delivery System, you can control anxiety or pain during any medical procedure. Much like what you might receive from your dentist for pain, this vapor blend allows you, the patient, to choose the strength of the nitrous oxide and oxygen flow. 

How soon do you see results from laser skin resurfacing?

As the skin recovers, a patient should keep the skin clean and protected. Within 1 – 2 weeks, new, refreshed, and rejuvenated skin should appear. Increased collagen production will lead to firmer, tighter skin that will continue to improve over time. Follow-up treatments may be needed for the best results.

What to expect after laser skin resurfacing

Patients are asked to follow our post-treatment instructions carefully after laser skin resurfacing. Swelling and redness usually subside within a short period depending on your skin sensitivity and the depth of the treatment. Your skin will continue to heal and improve over the next several months as collagen production is stimulated. Results can be long-lasting, and some patients only require one treatment session. However, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

Renew and refresh your skin

Beautiful skin can be yours with laser skin resurfacing. By removing damaged skin layer by layer, new skin will generate for a whole new you. Your skin will appear to be more youthful, smoother, firmer, and even-toned after just one treatment. To find out if laser skin resurfacing is right for you, give our friendly staff a call today to schedule your consultation.
