Dramatic skin rejuvenation
The introduction of lasers in the cosmetic industry has led to incredible solutions for those who wish to fight the visible signs of aging, have significant sun damage, or want to fade confidence-lowering acne scars. Using a Profractional Laser, the experts at Medical Aesthetics & Laser essentially “aerate” your face, creating micro-spherical channels in your skin that signal your body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen growth.
Other ablative laser resurfacing in The Woodlands requires extensive downtime, but thanks to Sciton’s cutting-edge ProFractional laser technology, we are able to leave your skin largely intact to dramatically reduce healing time. Additionally, we are able to precisely control how deep into your skin to treat with the laser, allowing us to control the results based on your goals and how much downtime you have in your schedule.
Laser Resurfacing in The Woodlands
What it Treats
Using Profractional technology for laser resurfacing in The Woodlands, we are able to successfully treat:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Brown spots

Led by the talented Dr. Reeves, our team is dedicated to providing the personal attention and specialized care you deserve. We take the time to listen to your needs and discuss your various options with you in detail to help you make the choices that are right for you. No questions go unanswered; no concerns are dismissed. Personal attention is provided every step of the way – from consultation to after-care, we are here for you.
How it Works
When you arrive for your laser resurfacing in The Woodlands, we will begin the procedure by using a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort while the laser is in contact with your skin. When you are numb, we will use the laser on the treatment area, which should be painless. Patients commonly report feeling heat or sunburn sensations during the treatment.
The fractional technology in this laser allows us to ablate only a fraction of the treatment area, leaving the surrounding skin intact. This method successfully addresses your concerns while getting you back to your regular routine much more quickly.
Here’s how to prepare for laser resurfacing in The Woodlands:
- Avoid getting a sunburn or suntan for at least 4 weeks prior to your treatment.
- Do not use any self-tanning products in the month leading up to your treatment.
- Stop the use of all your retinoid products for at least a week.
- Avoid blood-thinning medicines like products, aspirin, Vitamin E, etc. for at least a week.
Post-laser resurfacing instructions
- Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 10 days after your treatment.
- Do not go into direct sunlight without SPF 50 sunscreen or higher for at least 4 weeks following your treatment.
- You should also use a physical block, such as a hat or umbrella.
- Take Tylenol but avoid blood-thinning pain medications like Advil, Aleve, or Ibuprofen for 3 days.

If you have significant skin damage you’d like to address, such as age or sun spots, acne scars, fine lines, or wrinkles, a laser resurfacing treatment may provide the results you’re looking for. To check if laser resurfacing will work for you, use our Instant Virtual Consultation now.
If you have active acne or have recently taken acne mediations like Accutane, laser resurfacing could increase your risk of scarring. Additionally, if you have a heavy tan or dark skin, or if you smoke, laser skin resurfacing may not be for you.
After your skin in the treated area has peeled and fully healed after a laser resurfacing procedure, you’ll see significant improvements in your skin tone and texture, with results continuing to improve over several months thanks to the stimulation of collagen production from the laser’s heat.
If you follow our instructions and lead a healthy lifestyle, which includes adhering to a skincare regimen and sunscreen use, results of our laser resurfacing efforts can last as long as 3-5 years. We recommend following up for another treatment when you start to see signs of damage appearing again.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your procedure up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
