Laser Skin Resurfacing in New Orleans, LA
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with a laser is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to eliminate dead and damaged skin cell layers. The procedure is used for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for minimizing skin flaws, including pigmentation, acne scars, and other issues. Sometimes known as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is considered an ideal procedure for people who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Based on the needs of the patient's skin type, the treatment may be customized for the best results with either of our HALO™ or Contour TRL™ devices. HALO™, the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, applies tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize results and reduce downtime and discomfort. The Contour TRL™ offers a range from superficial NanoLaser Peels to Full Field Resurfacing performed by Dr. Walters. Recovery time varies depending upon which treatment is recommended for you. Any questions or concerns may be reviewed with New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters during your assessment and consultation.

Exceeding Expectations Daily
I just recently started my skin care routine with Robin at The Modern. She took the time to consult with me first, listen to my concerns and give me a step by step plan. My skin has not been the same since! Robin is the best! I just recently did the BBL Forever Young treatment and Robin made it a painless enjoyable experience. I’m so excited to see my results in the upcoming days! I highly recommend Robin to everyone!
I had a wonderful experience at the Modern with Robin. She made me feel very relaxed and comfortable while she explained the Halo Laser peel. I am loving the results that I am seeing. Thanks also to Karen Maczewski for suggesting the peel at my last visit. I highly recommend Dr Walters and his skilled team! Thanks again, Cindy Finley
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Before you are scheduled for a more intense laser peel treatment, Dr. Walters may recommend a skincare regimen to prepare your skin a few weeks prior to your treatment. Medication may be suggested prior to the procedure to help lessen any pain for increased comfort throughout your appointment. If your complexion only needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb treated areas of the face or body. Throughout the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the HALO™ or Contour TRL™ laser handpiece passes over your skin, directly targeting the needed surfaces for rejuvenation. You may sense the heat of the laser and then cool air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy is designed to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also promoting new collagen production.

Frequently Asked Questions
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
Dr. Walters can help you decide which resurfacing treatment is best for your concerns and goals in your consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, any skin problems, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery may also be an important factor when you create a treatment plan. When in doubt, it's better to try a lighter treatment to see how you like your outcomes and adjust as needed for your next appointment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Walters or someone on his staff will talk to you about ways to speed skin healing after a laser treatment. The number one rule is don't pick or peel your skin. Doing this can lead to lasting damage, including scars. You should forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We will suggest a cream to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the resurfacing method you and Dr. Walters choose for your procedure, you may need to wait several weeks or even months between appointments. Deeper treatments will provide results that last a long time; however, they will need a lengthy recovery period. You should talk to Dr. Walters about how frequently you want to come back for appointments so he can take this into account when choosing a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
