A Guide To Laser Skin Resurfacing In Lone Tree, CO
You have a variety of options for addressing your most pressing skin concerns, from sun damage and fine lines to keratosis pilaris and scars, and all that is in between.
However, with all of the medical aesthetic treatments on the market, it can be difficult for clients to know exactly which one will best address their concerns.
Laser treatments offer dramatic skin-rejuvenating results, but there are many laser procedures to choose from. Depending on your skin type, the extent of damage you wish to treat, and your available downtime, some laser resurfacing treatments may be more suited to your needs over another.
When considering whether to have laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree, the experienced team at DejaVu MedSpa can answer all your questions and help you understand your options to ensure we help you achieve gorgeous, healthy skin.
How does laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree work?
One of the most popular laser skin resurfacing procedures we perform at DejaVu is the Sciton® MicroLaserPeel™. This advanced laser treatment uses an Erbium Yag laser with a precise ablative wavelength that allows us to tailor the treatment to the client’s lifestyle and goals.
An ablative wavelength removes the epidermal layer of skin, producing the most dramatic laser-treated results for skin resurfacing. By triggering the skin’s powerful natural healing response, this laser promotes collagen formation and retraction of the dermis and epidermis to tighten the skin.
Who is the best candidate for laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree?
If you are bothered by the signs of aging, including sun damage & dark pigmentation, uneven skin tone, or keratosis pilaris, and you do not mind a treatment that may require seven or more days of downtime, you are likely a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree.
Thanks to the MicroLaserPeel’s flexibility, we can customize your laser skin resurfacing treatment to your specific needs. We can even balance the aggressiveness of the treatment to put you in more control of your recovery time.
During your initial consultation with our experienced laser technicians, we will evaluate your health & medical history, explain the laser treatment process, and go over all your questions. Only then can we ensure you are an ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree.
What happens during laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree?
A consultation & thorough skin analysis will ensure the MicroLaserPeel will be the best treatment to meet your goals. Then, we’ll schedule your appointment for laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree! We will also provide you with all necessary pre-treatment instructions, including medications or supplements, med spa treatments, and any topical skincare products you may need to avoid.
On the day of your laser treatment, you should arrive at our office with a clean, dry face and comfortable clothing. We will first apply a topical numbing cream, which will remain on the skin for about an hour to minimize any discomfort the laser may cause.
For the laser treatment, you will be seated or lying down and we will protect your eyes with special safety shields. Your laser clinician will then treat the area(s) of your skin section by section, positioning the laser handpiece above the skin and holding it in place as a computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area.
Risks, recovery, and side effects of laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree
Since the procedure is tailored to each individual’s needs, each client responds differently to laser skin resurfacing treatments. However, you should be prepared to take up to a week off of work and social activities while your skin recovers.
Typically, clients’ skin will be red and swollen immediately after the treatment and may feel like a sunburn. The skin may also appear more “bronzed” while the targeted spots of hyperpigmentation resolve themselves.
Most clients don’t notice results from their laser skin resurfacing treatment right away. Results can take a few days to appear, and the improvement process continues for many months afterward.
As the skin heals and regenerates tissues and collagen, clients will notice diminished lines & wrinkles, less noticeable keratosis pilaris, a more even complexion, and tighter, more radiant skin.
With adequate sun protection, healthy skincare practices, and regular evaluations & treatments at DejaVu MedSpa, clients can make the results of their laser resurfacing treatments last for years!

Botox® & Dermal Fillers
If you want to banish your most stubborn wrinkles, it’s easy to combine injectables (like Botox and fillers) with laser skin resurfacing in Lone Tree!
There are different types of injectables, including dermal neurotoxins and dermal fillers.
Our neurotoxin injectable, Botox, relaxes deep frown lines & forehead creases, lifts drooping brows, hides crow’s feet, and more.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® use hyaluronic acid to support and boost tissue volume that is lost as we age. We can also use fillers to plump lips, treat wrinkles in areas such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and temples. DejaVu offers free one-hour consultations for a full treatment plan.

When should I book it?
We typically recommend our clients have their injectable treatments performed after laser treatment since these products affect the skin’s subdermal layer and we do not want to risk disrupting the injectable with the laser.
It is important to wait at least 4 weeks after laser treatment to have any Botox or filler injections to allow the skin to heal.
Clients with more advanced sun damage may choose to combine the power of light and chemical exfoliants for better, complexion-clearing results.
The laser treatments will work to address deeper sun damage and pigmentation issues. Chemical peels treat shallower layers of skin, which we can use to treat superficial brown spots and address loss of skin elasticity from the sun’s rays.
When should I book it?
During your consultation, we will discuss your unique goals and analyze your skin to determine exactly which order we want to proceed with. In general, most clients choose to have laser skin resurfacing treatments first. Then, depending on their results, we can add a series of chemical peels to further dissolve the signs of sun damage.
