The Ultra-pulsed Carbon Dioxide Laser represents a major breakthrough in dermatologists' quest to help you "turn back the clock". This laser, consisting of a focused beam of infrared light, can be tuned to an exact depth sufficient to vaporize wrinkles and lines, yet shallow enough to lessen the risks. However, patients' skin sometimes remained pink or red for several weeks.
The DERMASANDING technique is similar, but employs a hand-held device to smooth out your skin. With this method, redness generally fades much more quickly.
All of these techniques require and artistic sense as well as considerable skill and experience. Dr. Swinehart has performed chemical peeling and dermabrasions since 1975, providing the patient with over 28 years of dermatologic surgical insight and acumen.
