Laser Skin Resurfacing in Scottsdale
Corrective: The Aphrodite peel is a great treatment to correct fine lines, textural imperfections, and uneven skin discolorations
The Aphrodite peel uses a fractional 2940 Erbium laser to precisely resurface the treatment area.
How does it work?
This treatment uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin.
What does treat?
Fine lines, textural imperfections and skin discolorations.
What can I expect during my treatment?
When you arrive, your medical history and medications will be reviewed, you will be consented, and photos of the treatment area will be taken. Your provider will cleanse your skin and apply numbing cream that will stay on the skin 30-45 minutes. The numbing cream will be removed, and protective goggles will be applied.

When can I expect results?
The treatment is generally well tolerated and without discomfort. You will be red after the treatment and may have small areas of “pin-point” bleeding that will resolve in 1-4 hours.
You can expect to be red for up to 72 hours after the treatment. Peeling may begin in 2-3 days and can last up to 3 days.
Best results are to do a series of 3 spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Improvements will continue to be seen up to 3 months after your treatment.
We recommend home care products including a retinol, and a product with hydroquinone for darker skin types for 2 weeks prior to your treatment. The Benefit peel is also a great way to prep the skin and speed healing.
