If you’re noticing the signs of age when you look in the mirror, you may be seeing wrinkles, sagging, and pigmentation concerns, or simply a loss of the youthful, radiant glow you once had. If you’d like to rejuvenate dull, aging skin and turn back the clock, we provide safe, effective, non-surgical laser skin resurfacing in The Woodlands at SGK Plastic Surgery to renew and refresh your appearance.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced, non-invasive skin treatment that reduces wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes, while it also tightens the skin and helps to balance skin tone and pigmentation.
Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin while the underlying skin is heated to stimulate the production of collagen, which is your body’s natural way of producing new, fresh and elastic skin. The dead skin peels away over a period of about one week, revealing firmer, fresh and more radiant skin beneath.
What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

What can I expect during the procedure?
At SGK Plastic Surgery, we offer Morpheus8 and fractional laser treatments to provide the very best in laser skin resurfacing.
Morpheus8 is a skin resurfacing and microneedling device that utilizes radiofrequency technology to refresh and revitalize the skin. With the micro penetration into the skin from the microneedling device, the RF energy is more deeply absorbed, which generates a more youthful, tight and smooth appearance. Collagen and elastin production is also dramatically triggered for a long term, further rejuvenating effect.
Our fractional laser treatment delivers precise beams of light into the lower layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin and triggers a natural healing process. This results in the fast growth of firmer, more healthy skin, and long-lasting results. This procedure safely improves skin tone, texture and quality, and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Recovery after laser skin resurfacing
There is no real recovery or downtime after Morpheus8 or fractional laser treatments. You can get right back to your usual activities and routine once the procedure is complete, but there may be some redness, a tight feeling or some swelling for about a week. Wait one day to apply makeup again, and avoid any exposure to the sun for four weeks after treatment.
How long do I have to stay out of the sun?
It’s important to stay out of the sun following laser skin rejuvenation for about a month. The length of time may depend on the laser used and how aggressive the treatment was.
Will I need more than one treatment?
You will see results after one treatment. The number of treatments you require will depend on your aesthetic goals.
When will I see the results?
You will see results in two to three weeks, once your skin has healed. These results will continue to improve over time as the production of collagen and elastin take effect.
Can any skin color be treated with laser skin resurfacing?
Yes, the treatments may be done on any skin color or type.
Can laser skin resurfacing be done in combination with other treatments?
Yes, you may have a number of other non-invasive treatments or more significant surgical procedures done at the same time as your laser skin resurfacing.
How long do laser resurfacing results last?
Results can last anywhere from three to five years, or even longer with touch up treatments.
Is laser resurfacing safe?
When it is performed by an experienced, trained doctor, laser skin resurfacing is quite safe.
