What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses advanced laser technologies such as Sciton, HALO, and BBL to target various skin concerns and restore a more youthful, vibrant complexion. These cutting-edge treatments work by stimulating collagen production, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and addressing skin irregularities, ultimately revealing smoother, healthier skin. Whether you're looking to reverse signs of aging or improve skin tone and texture, laser skin rejuvenation offers a tailored approach to meet your specific skincare goals.

At Micallef Plastic Surgery, there are three laser technologies we employ for laser skin rejuvenation procedures. They are:


Sciton is a leading laser platform known for its versatility. It offers a wide range of laser treatments, including skin resurfacing, hair removal, and vascular treatments. Sciton lasers use various wavelengths to target specific skin concerns, allowing for precise and customizable treatments.


HALO is a hybrid fractional laser system that combines ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths. This technology offers a unique advantage by delivering both superficial and deep skin rejuvenation in a single treatment session. HALO is highly effective for reducing wrinkles, improving skin texture, and enhancing overall skin tone.

BBL (BroadBand Light)

BBL is a non-invasive light-based treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target pigmentation irregularities, sun damage, and signs of aging. BBL can effectively treat issues like age spots, freckles, redness, and small blood vessels, leading to more even and youthful-looking skin.

These laser technologies are valuable tools in the field of cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery, allowing us to address a wide range of skin concerns with precision and minimal downtime. Each technology has its unique strengths, making them suitable for various skin types and concerns.

The Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation offers a multitude of benefits, helping you achieve radiant and youthful skin:

  • Improved Skin Texture: Laser treatments can effectively smooth out rough skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Even Skin Tone: These lasers can target areas of pigmentation, such as age spots, sun spots, and redness, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • Stimulated Collagen Production: Laser therapy stimulates collagen production, promoting natural skin tightening and a firmer complexion.
  • Minimized Scarring: It can reduce the visibility of scars from acne, surgery, or injuries, enhancing your skin's overall appearance.
  • Reduced Pore Size: Laser treatments can help shrink enlarged pores, giving your skin a smoother and more refined look.
  • Youthful Glow: By removing damaged skin layers and promoting cell turnover, laser rejuvenation can restore a youthful radiance to your complexion.
  • Minimal Downtime: Many laser treatments have minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities quickly.
  • Customizable: Laser skin rejuvenation is highly customizable, catering to your specific skin type and concerns.

Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation Right for Me?

Laser skin rejuvenation is well-suited for individuals who are looking to address various skin concerns and improve the overall quality and appearance of their skin. Ideal candidates typically have concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven skin texture, or acne scars. This treatment is suitable for those seeking a non-surgical and minimally invasive approach to enhance their skin's health and appearance. During a consultation with Dr. Micallef, your specific skin type, concerns, and treatment goals will be assessed to determine if laser skin rejuvenation is the right option for you.

The Laser Skin Rejuvenation Process What to Expect

Your laser skin rejuvenation journey at Micallef Plastic Surgery begins with a comprehensive consultation. During this initial meeting, Dr. Micallef will thoroughly assess your skin's condition, discuss your specific concerns, and determine the most suitable laser technology for your needs. Devices like Sciton, HALO, and BBL offer versatile solutions for various skin issues.

When it comes to the procedure itself, the specific steps can vary depending on the chosen laser technology and your individual treatment plan. Generally, the process involves the application of the laser device to the targeted area of the skin. These advanced lasers work by delivering controlled energy into the skin's deeper layers, stimulating collagen production, and encouraging the body's natural healing process. The level of discomfort experienced during the procedure can vary depending on the depth and intensity of the treatment, but Dr. Micallef often uses topical anesthetics or cooling techniques to minimize any potential discomfort. Most patients find the procedure to be well-tolerated.

Following your laser skin rejuvenation treatment, you can expect some degree of redness, swelling, or minor discomfort, similar to a sunburn, which usually subsides within a few days. It's essential to follow post-treatment care instructions meticulously to support the healing process. Over the following weeks, you'll notice gradual improvements in your skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance. The full extent of the results may continue to develop over several months as collagen production increases, leaving you with smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Dr. Micallef will provide guidance on maintaining and optimizing your results as part of your personalized treatment plan.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Recovery

After undergoing laser skin rejuvenation in San Antonio at Micallef Plastic Surgery, you may notice some redness and mild swelling, which are normal and usually subside within a few days. Additionally, your skin might feel warm, similar to a sunburn, for a brief period.

It's crucial to protect your skin from direct sunlight and follow post-treatment care instructions provided by Dr. Micallef diligently. Over the next few weeks, you'll gradually witness your skin's transformation. The rejuvenation process will continue as collagen production increases, enhancing your skin's texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall tone.

Most patients can resume their regular activities relatively quickly, with only minimal downtime required. However, it's essential to refrain from strenuous exercise and activities that could cause excessive sweating and irritation to the treated area for a few days.

Your results will become increasingly noticeable as time goes on, with optimal outcomes typically becoming evident in the weeks and months following your laser skin rejuvenation treatment.
