Laser Resurfacing in Portland, ME

Laser skin resurfacing, and especially facial laser resurfacing, can produce dramatic improvements in the youthfulness and texture of the skin. At Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, we offer a number of laser skin resurfacing treatments to the residents of New England and Portland, Maine.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic technique that uses laser energy to exfoliate damaged skin cells, revealing healthier, brighter skin. Additionally, laser energy stimulates collagen production in the skin to trigger long-lasting benefits like skin tightening. Laser skin resurfacing can be either fractional laser resurfacing, or CO2 fractional laser resurfacing.

At Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, we specialize in both treatments to offer our patients the laser skin resurfacing treatment that is best for them. These treatments include the eMatrix laser and the Total FX CO2 fractionated laser. Benefits of these treatments include:

  • Reduction in lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction in acne and acne scars
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Reduction in stretch marks
  • And more

How Much Do Total FX and eMatrix Cost?

The cost of your laser skin resurfacing treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your laser skin resurfacing treatment that will work best for you.

Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.

What is the Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Like?

The eMatrix treatment and the Total FX treatment use radiofrequency energy and laser energy, respectively, to gently resurface the skin. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. Topical anesthetic ointments are used to reduce unpleasant feelings during treatment. A typical laser skin resurfacing treatment takes about one hour.

What is Recovery Like After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

After laser skin resurfacing treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance is common. After the redness has subsided, your skin will look brown and feel somewhat rough, like sandpaper. Then, it will begin to peel for a few days. During this period, you will need to take special care to protect the skin from the sun and other irritants. However, most normal activities can be resumed following your appointment.

What Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Most laser skin resurfacing patients will require multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. However, the exact number of treatments will vary. You will begin to notice results within a few weeks of your first treatment, once the skin begins to heal and collagen takes effect in the body.
