Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing precisely removes the surface layers of your skin with a laser, revealing the fresh, untouched skin underneath.

Dedicated to using state-of-the-art technology, St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa uses the new Viva laser by Venus Versa™, which has NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and SmartScan™ technology, to gently resurface the skin, shrinking pore size, reducing wrinkles, and more.

What does skin resurfacing do?

As you age, your skin naturally begins to show the telltale signs of aging. Sun damage, brown spots, acne scars, and wrinkles are common signs of aging skin that can diminish your confidence and self-esteem.

Skin resurfacing removes these imperfections to refresh and renew your skin. It can help improve the appearance of your skin if you struggle with:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores


Laser resurfacing also tightens your skin to deliver a youthful glow and prevent skin laxity.

How does skin resurfacing work?

The Viva’s NanoFractional Radio Frequency and SmartScan technology work together to produce visible results that work with your unique skin tone and texture. This treatment uses very tiny pins that safely deliver precise laser energy through the surface of your skin. Meanwhile, the treatment’s SmartScan technology designs a unique pin pattern that directly addresses your skin concerns.

Once your provider adjusts your settings, the tiny pins create micro-wounds in your skin that trigger your body’s natural healing response. This repairs skin damage and stimulates collagen production to tighten and lift your skin without injections or cosmetic surgery.

Does skin resurfacing hurt?

Your provider at St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa may use a local anesthetic to ease your discomfort during the treatment.

Overall, many patients report that skin resurfacing feels like a small rubber band snapping against their skin. It shouldn’t be unbearably painful, and many believe the treatment feels less painful than a chemical peel.

How long does skin resurfacing take?

Skin resurfacing takes around 30-45 minutes per session, depending on the areas you want to treat. A full-face treatment can take up to two hours. Because skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure, you won’t need any downtime to recover.

Though you may notice visible results after just one treatment, St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa typically recommends two to three treatments spaced anywhere from four to six weeks apart. During this time, it’s important to limit your sun exposure to minimize the chances of complications.

Skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that enhances the texture and tone of your skin. To schedule a consultation with St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa, call the office, or book an appointment online today.
