Spending time outside on a boat, beach or golf course is fun, but the sun exposure can cause your skin to age prematurely. Fortunately, laser resurfacing can help remove the brown spots and fine lines caused by prolonged sun exposure.
With our wide variety of lasers, the professionals at Charlotte Plastic Surgery treat more than the effects of the sun – we can also help improve acne scars and reduce wrinkles.
Lumenis Active FX®, Deep FX® and Total FX®
For those with a busy lifestyle who want noticeable long-term results and minimal recovery time, facial rejuvenation is a great option. Using the Lumenis CO2 laser, the surgeons at Charlotte Plastic Surgery can freshen the skin around your face, neck, chest and hands in sessions that work with your schedule.
This fractional resurfacing procedure can tighten the skin’s surface, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin tone and texture – all of which are immediately visible. Utilizing Lumenis ActiveFX® and DeepFX® technology, the procedure uses a fractional approach with tiny columns of thermal energy spaced far enough apart to spare healthy skin tissue during treatment – and that means a faster healing process.
This procedure also stimulates collagen formation, resulting in ongoing improvement up to six months later.

Sciton™ Broadband Light (BBL or IPL)
This technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to help restore the skin to its natural state. Years of sun exposure, acne and overall skin aging will greatly improve with only a few treatments. The light energy delivered by the BBL targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots, melasma or hyperpigmented areas. With BBL, there is little to no down time. Mild to moderate redness immediately after treatment should be expected and will begin to go away within an hour or two after treatment. In most situations, patients can resume their normal skin care regimen within a few days after treatment. For best results, a series of three treatments is usually recommended and can be performed four weeks apart from each other.
SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to heat up and cause a thermal wound to the dermis. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen production. This results in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. A series of three to five treatments is recommended. There is no down time as a result of this treatment. Patients can immediately resume their normal skin care regimen. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
The Dermapen® is a micro-needling device used to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. Charlotte Plastic Surgery is excited to offer our patients the opportunity to rejuvenate their skin with minimal down time and expense. This procedure is done in a series of three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. The handheld needling device is used to stamp the skin, creating a micro-injury that encourages the body’s healing ability to produce new healthy skin. Best of all, it can be used on all skin types.
