Laser Skin Resurfacing in Austin, TX

Laser Skin Resurfacing in Austin, TX | Cosmetic DermatologyAging, sun exposure, disease, and heredity factors can cause the skin to lose its natural elasticity and suppleness. Sagging skin, wrinkles, and lines can make a person appear older than their age. Advanced laser-based skin care treatments can help to reverse these effects and restore a younger looking and smoother skin.

Laser skin resurfacing technology has revolutionized the field of cosmetic dermatology in the last decade. Zimmet Vein & Dermatology is a premier practice equipped with state of the art laser technologies to provide safe and effective skin solutions. Led by experienced dermatologist Dr. Steven Zimmet, the practice provides aesthetic and medical skin care treatments to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations.


Fractional Resurfacing with Laser

While standard laser skin resurfacing can achieve the desired skin enhancement, it is a more aggressive technique and involves more downtime. Therefore, Dr. Zimmet prefers fractional laser skin resurfacing to achieve the desired level of skin care and youthfulness in a gentler way. Fractional laser skin resurfacing technique involves the use of an array of precise microbeams, which will treat columns of skin rather than whole areas.

This allows the provider to minimize patient discomfort during the procedure and achieve excellent results with a shorter recovery period. Individuals with deeply etched wrinkles, moderate to heavy sagginess in the skin and irregular pigmentation can achieve significant benefits from fractional resurfacing with CO2 laser. At Zimmet Vein & Dermatology, the laser expert will evaluate the skin type and condition and offer an appropriate, customized treatment plan.



Dr. Zimmet employs the Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 laser (Active FX, Deep FX, Total FX) for fractionated ablative skin resurfacing. In comparison to non-ablative techniques, this procedure will help achieve more substantive reduction in aging, tighter and smoother skin, and scar reduction. This ablative technique can be used in areas such as the face, neck, and chest.

If the patient has a less severe degree of skin laxity, Dr. Zimmet will recommend the ENDYMED™ 3DEEP fractional resurfacing. This technology is based on radio frequency (RF) energy, which will penetrate into the deeper skin layers to promote new collagen and fresh skin growth. This procedure is faster and involves lesser downtime. Dr. Zimmet is a dedicated dermatologist receiving patients from Austin, TX and nearby areas.



Individuals with one or more of the following conditions may make good candidates for fractional laser skin resurfacing:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Pigmentation on the face, neck and chest
  • Fine lines around lower eyelids
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Facial wrinkles and sagging skin
  • Acne scars

Depending on the severity of these conditions, the treatment expert may recommend fractional resurfacing with a CO2 laser or an RF applicator.


Recovery and Results

Fractional laser skin resurfacing will replace damaged or aging skin with new, healthy skin cells. The recovery period can range from one or two days to five or six days, depending on the technique and the extent of surface area treated. Smoother and tighter skin along with reduction in skin coloration will become noticeable in the weeks following the treatment.
