What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional laser skin resurfacing is one of the more popular cutting-edge aesthetic treatments offered by the specialists at Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center. This noninvasive procedure uses pulses of laser energy to precisely remove damaged skin cells one layer at a time. The procedure is performed to address facial wrinkles and lines and to minimize skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Our Midland, TX office provides both non-ablative and ablative fractional laser treatments, allowing our providers to treat even severe cosmetic imperfections. If you want softer, clearer, more youthful-looking skin, arrange a skin assessment and laser skin resurfacing consultation at our practice today.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
There are multiple factors to think about when choosing which type of laser skin resurfacing procedure is right for your needs. Laser skin resurfacing is geared toward people who are unhappy with their overall complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, redness, or pigmentation issues, this treatment may help improve these cosmetic flaws. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works wonders for patients who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other skin surface problems. This treatment is not suggested for anyone who has very dark skin or active acne outbreaks. Also, it's important to understand that there is downtime needed after laser therapy. Certain patients, based on their skin condition, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks to recover.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, we can predict that with age, the skin can become increasingly dry, dull, and lifeless. With laser skin resurfacing technologies, we can provide our Midland, TX individuals a chance at new skin with a treatment that yields a number of amazing benefits:
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduction of pores and inconsistent skin surface
- Reduced visibility of scars and hyperpigmentation
- Improved confidence and self-esteem around your skin's appearance
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Depending on the scope of your laser resurfacing treatment, our team may advise you to apply a retinoid cream to the target area for 2 – 3 weeks prior to your appointment. This solution will help refresh your skin and prepare it for the procedure. Prior to the treatment, a member of the Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center team will administer a numbing ointment to keep you relaxed and comfortable.
For lighter treatments, our practice uses the ResurFX™ fractional laser handpiece, which is capable of treating the skin cells without destroying them. We can customize the treatment to suit your specific skin tone and cosmetic desires to create an all-new look for you. ResurFX treatments at our Midland, TX facility can generally be carried out in 15 – 30 minutes, leaving you free to go about the rest of your day afterward. It is normal to experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and skin peeling, all of which will subside in a few days as your complexion heals.
For more advanced cases, we offer CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This is an ablative treatment, which means it is capable of precisely targeting and removing damaged skin cells while promoting collagen production for regrowth. While these treatments are more powerful and tend to require a bit of downtime for recovery, you can rest assured that the technology is safe and accurate. Following your procedure, the treatment areas will most likely be protected with dressings, and the burning, irritation, and swelling symptoms will be intensified. Medication can be prescribed to minimize these side effects. Once the healing process is done, your skin will feel softer while appearing rejuvenated, younger, and clearer.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
LOVE Dr. Caglia and his Assistant (Penny). I would highly recommend his office to anyone who is planning on getting a procedure. I would check with him first because he is one that will tell you what kind of results are possible. I have had several procedures done and ALL have had great results. I would call him an Artistic as to the detail he takes whether sculpting lips, vanishing leg veins, or laser skin resurfacing. He is one with great integrity and honest in all that he does.
Dr. Caglia has been my family's dermatologist for several years now. He has performed several cosmetic procedures on me, which have all left me with healthier younger looking skin. Dr. Caglia listened to my concerns and helped me create a cosmetic plan that would best treat my issues while preserving a natural look. Last year, my eight year old daughter had a questionable mole on her back. Dr. Caglia sat down beside her and explained the removal procedure and calmed her nerves. Seconds later, the mole was removed, and my daughter didn't feel a thing! His professionalism and genuine care for his patients is what keeps me coming back.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
Laser resurfacing costs are based on the treatment you select. During your consultation, Dr. Caglia will understand your skin issues and wants before explaining the types of laser resurfacing treatments available. After this, he will help you decide on your resurfacing treatment and discuss costs. Basin Dermatology and Cosmetic Center regularly offers treatment specials and packages, so ask for more information during your appointment.
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Caglia can help you choose which resurfacing option fits your needs and goals. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, your skin problems, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery may also be a deciding factor when choosing your treatment type. If you are unsure, it's better to start with a milder treatment, assess your outcomes, and adjust as needed for your second treatment.
How can I help my skin recover after laser skin resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Caglia or someone on his staff will recommend how you can help your skin heal following your laser resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is to not peel or pick flaking skin. This can lead to long-term damage, including scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which includes waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We will recommend a cream to help soothe treated areas.
