What You'll Get
Maintaining your skin can help project a professional image more easily than sewing a three-piece suit from business cards. Finesse your façade with today's Groupon. for $850, you get a laser fractional skin resurfacing treatment for the face, neck/chest, or hands/forearms at BodyWise Specialists in Indialantic (a $1,750 value).
At BodyWise Specialists, epidermal surfaces are landscaped under the direct care of cosmetic laser surgeon Regina Kaufmann, MD. Using the SmartXide DOT treatment developed by Deka Laser Technologies, the fractional skin resurfacing treatment harnesses a pixilated CO2 laser capable of penetrating the skin at a deeper level than traditional laser systems or body-possessing poltergeists. Precise bursts of light dive into cells and are distributed in a matrix pattern that spaces laser exposure to promote rapid recovery. By prompting deep cell turnover, the treatment may reduce the appearance of blemishes, scarring, photodamage, and stubborn ketchup stains, while stimulated collagen production may result in tightened, younger-looking skin.
Treatment typically takes one hour, preceded by an hour of local numbing. Depending on the intensity of the skin resurfacing, downtime typically spans three to six days, and patients leave with post-treatment instructions and a bag full of daily affirmations. Results can show within a week and continue to develop for about two months. Those with a history of cold sores should advise BodyWise beforehand for additional prep. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is not recommended for patients with especially dark skin, as defined by Fitzpatrick skin types five and six.
