Sun damage can cause advanced signs of aging on the skin. Pregnancy, weather and the natural aging process can also change the appearance of the skin and cause surface irregularities. For patients who want to rejuvenate the appearance of their skin, laser skin resurfacing may be a great option. It can smooth and soften fine lines and wrinkles without surgery. Results are noticeable within a few short weeks of treatment. Las Vegas patients find that improvements in the skin’s tone and appearance are long-lasting and they appreciate the nonsurgical aspect of this treatment.

"Love Dr. Candace and her husband. They are talented. I am surprised they don't have 5 stars here on yelp, they deserve it. Yes, I had to wait a really long time in the waiting room each visit. But that's okay because they are worth the wait. I can't speak about any of the other doctors there but I was 100% happy w both Dr. Spanns."- H.H. / Yelp / Jan 23, 2018

Types of Lasers
Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, and dermatologist, Dr. Candace Spann, offer the following laser skin resurfacing treatments at Couture Dermatology & Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas:
The eCO2 laser from Lutronic offers highly advanced fractional ablative laser resurfacing. The beam from the eCO2 instantly removes the top layers of skin on the treatment area, correcting sunspots, wrinkles, acne scars, and other blemishes without disturbing the surrounding healthy tissue. Dr. Marvin and Dr. Candace both perform all eCO2 laser procedures at our Las Vegas plastic surgery office. This treatment works well for individuals with moderate to severe sun damage. There is minimal recovery time needed, however, depending on the condition of the skin prior to treatment, some patients may experience a little downtime as the treated area heals.
Lutronic® Spectra™ Laser
Whether you’re tired of hiding scars behind layers of makeup or embarrassed by areas of conspicuous hyperpigmentation, laser skin resurfacing can help you restore a more even tone to your skin. The Spectra Laser by Lutronic uses a dual-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, which can be adjusted to address a number of skin blemishes, including spider veins, hyperpigmentation, tattoos, and acne scars. The Lutronic Spectra is the only laser that is FDA approved for the treatment of melasma. It is also very effective for laser epidermal peels to smooth skin, minimize pores, and even skin tone for a fresh, healthy appearance.
InMode® Lumecca IPL™
Lumecca uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to selectively target and treat skin conditions through selective photothermolysis. Optimized for light and dark skin, Lumecca increases the potential for clinicians to treat a variety of skin types and conditions ranging from facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture and/or photo-damage.
During/After the Procedure
Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. There may be some moderate discomfort during treatment, depending on the laser used and the areas treated. A local anesthesia may be applied to ease this discomfort. Regardless of which laser is used, patients will experience some degree of peel. They will be advised to keep the treated areas safe from any sun exposure and to be patient as the area heals. It may take a few days before the patient can resume normal activities.
The cost for laser skin resurfacing varies according to the technology used and the number and size of areas treated. The average cost can range between $500-$3,000. Factors included are medications (including anesthesia if needed), practitioner’s fee and machine use costs.
