What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Experience laser skin resurfacing at NuVida Aesthetics & Wellness. This noninvasive procedure removes damaged skin layers to rejuvenate your appearance. We utilize Alma's Opus® or Harmony XL PRO systems depending on your skin's needs. The Opus is a robust laser treatment that combines microplasma and radiofrequency energy, fostering cell turnover to help treat rough spots, scaly patches, and other imperfections. Targeting facial wrinkles, lines, pigmentation, acne scars, and more, the Harmony XL PRO offers comprehensive rejuvenation. Also known as a laser peel, Harmony's iPixel Er: YAG handpiece delivers exceptional results for those seeking translucent, youthful skin. There is little downtime associated with these advanced laser skin resurfacing treatments. If you have any questions or concerns, you can discuss them with Aaron Paxman during your initial consultation.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

At NUVIDA Med Aesthetics And Wellness, we realize that with age your skin may turn dehydrated, dull, and lifeless. Using laser skin resurfacing treatments, we can give our American Fork, UT patients an opportunity for more youthful skin with an option that gives multiple optimal perks:

  • Reduced appearance of creases and lines
  • Enhancement of rough skin texture
  • Reduced appearance of scars and sun damage
  • Improved self-confidence surrounding your facial aesthetic
  • Tightening of pores

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

If you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense laser resurfacing session, you may be asked to use a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser appointment. The retinoid helps prepare the skin for optimal results. Medication will be suggested before the procedure to help reduce any sensation for greater relaxation during your session. If your complexion only needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb treated areas of the face. A type of sedation may be necessary for full-face or deeper laser procedures. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over the skin, directly targeting the specific surfaces for resurfacing. You will feel the warmth from the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser removes damaged and dead skin cells while prompting new collagen production.

I received the Opus laser therapy today. Jaci helped me and she was very helpful, she explained everything before it happened. She was very kind and great to work with! Definitely recommend!

The level of service at Nuvida salon is incredible. Jaci helped my fiancé with Opus for his acne scars before our wedding. Jaci is very kind and helpful. The salon was very clean and well organized!

AMAZING! I’m so glad I found Nuvida! Jen has been so awesome to teach me all about laser removal and the process. The painless process! My hair had drastically decreased after just the first treatment. And the amount of treatments needed is ridiculously lower compared to other laser treatments. I tell everyone about how great it’s been!

Nuvida really is a beautiful, comfortable, safe and friendly place for those who are looking for a little help in aging more gracefully. My first procedure I had done was with the IPL laser and I loved it. I have since gone back for OPUS and hormone replacement therapy. I have loved my results from the laser therapies but the support and treatment with my hormone levels has honestly improved my quality of life so much. I’d highly recommend talking to Jen and her staff if you have ever thought about getting some of these procedures done. They are so knowledgeable and will make you feel right at home.

I can’t say enough good things about NUVIDA and the owner Jen! The medspa scene in Utah can sometimes feel a little judgy and toxic (iykyk) but Jen has created a unicorn: a non-intimidating, beautiful, inviting, high-end space. I was sold when I read something she wrote that said, “come as you are and leave feeling loved.” She went above and beyond to answer my questions ahead of time via text and didn’t make me feel silly for asking them in the first place. She’s kind, welcoming, fun to chat with, professional, and clearly passionate about providing the best experience to her clients. Can’t wait to go back to try another service later this week!

About Us
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Laser skin resurfacing costs vary based on the type of treatment you get. During your consultation, Dr. Paxman will ask about your skin issues and wants before discussing the different types of resurfacing treatments. After this, he can help you choose your resurfacing method and discuss costs. NUVIDA Med Aesthetics And Wellness often runs skin treatment specials and packages, so be sure to ask during your appointment.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?

During your consultation, Dr. Paxman can help you decide which resurfacing treatment best suits your needs and goals. The best treatment for you will depend on the health and condition of your skin, your skin concerns, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery might also be an important consideration when you create a treatment plan. If you are in doubt, starting with a lighter treatment is better to see how you like your results and adjust as needed for your next treatment.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

Dr. Paxman or a staff member will give you tips on ways to speed skin healing after a laser resurfacing treatment. The most important rule is not to pick or peel your skin. This could lead to lasting damage, including scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can recommend cream to help soothe your skin.
