What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive treatment designed to reduce the appearance of imperfections, including acne scars, uneven skin tone or texture, and wrinkles. Titan Medical Aesthetics offers this procedure to allow our patients to counteract anxieties stemming from the state of their skin. The treatment uses lasers to exfoliate layers of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the softer, younger-looking skin underneath.

"I had my first laser hair removal at Titan Medical Aesthetics and I am so happy that I did! You could tell that Dr. Navarra and his staff (Katy and Jo) love what they do and are very passionate about their work! I had looked into laser hair removal in the past but was too nervous to get it done. When I went into Titan Medical Aesthetics for my consultation with Dr. Navarra and his staff they were very knowledgeable and able to answer all of my questions and help ease my mind. I am so glad that I had the laser hair removal done! It was easy and painless. I can not say enough good things about my experience.

"Dr. Navarra has been my primary care Dr for quite a few years now and he has always been professional, knowledgeable and caring. Due to the Covid-19 crisis they have made some other options available like video conference visits. I opted instead to visit the office and it was good to see that they were practicing social distancing and proper protocol. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a new primary care Dr."- G.P. / Google / Jul 12, 2020

Do I Qualify for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
This treatment is not recommended for patients with dark skin tones or active acne outbreaks. As such, it is best used by those with relatively fair skin. However, patients with darker skin tones can set up a consultation to discuss alternative treatment options that will be safer for the long-term health of their skin.
Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat the following problems:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation spots
- Scaly patches
- Rough skin texture
What is the procedure for laser skin resurfacing?
Before the procedure begins, a topical anesthetic or mild sedative may be applied to the targeted areas in order to decrease your skin sensitivity. A few minutes later, the treatment will be ready to begin. The xeo® device will then be placed on the skin and slowly guided over the targeted areas as the laser removes layers of old, damaged skin while encouraging the production of collagen. Depending on the severity of your skin tone or texture, the device can be set on one of several settings that determines the intensity of the laser.
What is the Recovery Process for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Patients will be permitted to return home immediately following the treatment. There is virtually zero downtime.
It is important to avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays in the days and weeks following laser skin resurfacing. If you must go outside, remember to use a high SPF sunscreen and reapply it regularly. When the skin begins to peel, patients should refrain from picking at it in order to allow the skin to heal naturally. Picking at the skin could result in scarring or further damage to the area. After 2 – 3 weeks, the recovery process should be complete and the skin should be noticeably smoother and softer.
