What is Laser Skin Resurfacing
We use laser skin resurfacing at TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX to rejuvenate the cosmetic of the skin. Thanks to the innovative technology of the CO2RE, eTwo, PicoWay lasers, restoring the look and feel of the skin can be accomplished safely and effectively. Although positive results can be seen after just one treatment, several sessions may be required to obtain optimal outcomes. If you are unhappy with the aesthetic of your skin, call our front desk today to schedule a consultation. Our staff can discuss all your treatment options in detail and determine if you are an ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing.
The CO2RE, eTwo, and PicoWay lasers will target the deep layers of your skin (up to 1 mm) to treat the damaged areas in the dermis without causing a break or scar.
PicoWay is unique in that it can be used on a variety of skin types. Using picosecond laser technology, it promotes the production of both collagen and elastin. It offers more prominent results with less treatments and faster healing times.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of our most common and popular treatments at TruDerm. It changes the appearance of the skin and allows both men and women to attain cosmetic results in a nonsurgical, noninvasive way. During a thorough consultation, we will assess the skin and use the appropriate laser to treat one or more of the following conditions:
- Acne Scars
- Pigmentation Irregularities
- Pigmented Lesions
- Sun Spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks (known as "Striae")
These skin conditions can be treated using CO2, fractional, and picosecond laser resurfacing in a safe and effective manner with outstanding results that look and feel softer and younger.

"Jenna is amazing! This is by far the best experience I've had at a dermatologist. She answered all of my questions and did not make me feel rushed. Even though I gave her plenty of opportunities, she did not push products on me, but gave cost-effective suggestions that fit my needs and my budget. Cannot recommend TruDerm and Jenna more!"- M.A. / Google / Mar 01, 2019

During the Treatment
You will be seated comfortably in a chair in one of our spa-like treatment rooms and your skin will be gently cleansed. We will then aim the chosen laser at the desired treatment area and pass it over the skin. This process will remove old or damaged skin cells layer-by-layer, and stimulate new collagen growth. It may take several sessions to see the best results, but most patients see improvements even after the first treatment.
What to Expect
You can expect some downtime after a laser skin resurfacing treatment because the skin will need some time to heal. We recommend not exposing the skin to the sun and wearing sunscreen to protect your newly treated skin. The natural response of your skin is to crust and flake off, so please refrain from picking or pulling off the skin. You could damage or scar your facial skin. This process may take up to 1 – 2 weeks. Keep your skin clean and protected from irritants.
