What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If facials, products, and your everyday skincare routine aren’t improving your skin or resolving specific conditions, we can help. At O’Donnell Vein & Laser, conveniently located in Annapolis and Easton, MD, we offer different laser skin resurfacing treatments specifically designed to target and correct some of the most stubborn and visible skin imperfections. From acne scars and wrinkles to redness and pigmented lesions, our laser treatments can do it all and help you achieve your most beautiful skin to date.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a name for treatments that uses laser energy to address skin imperfections. These treatments utilize that laser energy to create controlled injuries on the skin’s surface. The body responds by increasing collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers to support the skin’s foundational layer. They also help remove damaged skin cells and replace them with new, healthier cells.

Lasers deliver light energy to the skin to target and improve wrinkles, imperfections, age spots, uneven skin texture, and other skin concerns. By breaking up damaged pigment in deeper layers, these lasers can target pigmentation concerns and replace uneven skin tone with new, fresh and younger skin cells. This treatment can help address:

  • Skin irregularities
  • Skin growths
  • Blemishes
  • The signs of aging
  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Oversized pores
  • Sun damage
  • Pigmented lesions scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Photodamage
  • Skin laxity
  • Facial redness
  • Visible red veins
  • Port-wine stains
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Bruises sunspots
  • Venous lakes
  • Telangiectasis

Our Laser Treatments

At O’Donnell Vein and Laser, we offer many different laser resurfacing treatment options to help address our patient’s unique skincare needs. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will review your aesthetic goals and evaluate your area of concern to determine which of these laser systems can help perfect your complexion and deliver the best possible results.


BBL is a laser system by Sciton that uses broadband light to refresh and rejuvenate the skin. It utilizes IPL, which is short for intense pulsed light, to promote rapid cellular turnover and help reduce and eliminate the various signs of aging, freckles, acne, and rosacea.

MicroLaser Peel

The MicroLaser Peel is a skin rejuvenating treatment that uses laser energy to target the skin in such a way as to help promote cell turnover and increased collagen production. In doing so, it helps rejuvenate the appearance and smooths away the signs of aging. This treatment penetrates the deeper layer of the skin known as the dermis to help improve and eliminate sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation.


Halo is another laser skin resurfacing treatment that utilizes hybrid fractional laser energy, also known as HFL, to address all different types of pigmentation concerns and uneven skin texture. During the treatment process, it uses different wavelengths, including ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, to help treat the skin on the face and different areas of the body, including the neck, arms, and chest.

It can help improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, general and acne-related scarring, pigmented lesions, and enlarged pores.

Excel V+

Excel V+ is a laser treatment that we offer at our office to treat different concerns using. This device uses laser technology to deliver several wavelengths of light to the skin. In doing so, it can clear the skin, promote an even and smooth complexion, and address some of the most stubborn skin-related conditions. From visible red veins to port wine stains, this laser treatment can help address it all and everything in-between.


ProFractional is another laser skin resurfacing treatment that can zone in on very specific areas of the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. It helps increase the production of collagen beneath the skin’s surface and also remodels existing collagen. In doing so, it will help improve loose skin, scarring, and photodamage.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a laser treatment that focuses on increasing your skin’s collagen levels. As you age, your body produces less collagen with every passing year, but this treatment can help force your body to increase collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to strengthen the foundational layers.

It heats the dermis to initiate a collagen production response that will continue for several weeks post-treatment. After undergoing this treatment, you can expect to see an overall improvement in your skin, including smaller and tighter pores, an more even skin tone, and significantly reduced redness.

How Does the Treatment Process Work?

Because we offer so many different laser skin resurfacing treatments, the first step in the process is an initial consultation at our office. We will evaluate your concerns in person, learn more about your skin and medical history, and help determine which of these laser systems will best help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Then, we will create your unique treatment plan and provide you with a better idea of how many treatments you will need to schedule to achieve your desired results. Then we will begin the treatment process so that you can experience a clear and even complexion as soon as possible.

Your Treatment

Once you undergo laser treatment, you will be one step closer to a clear and beautiful complexion. It will take several days for your skin to heal post-treatment, and you may experience some peeling or dryness, which is a completely normal part of the process and means that the treatment is working to produce your desired effects.

What Are the Benefits?

There are many benefits of laser skin resurfacing treatments, yet the most important is that they are effective. If you’ve tried everything to improve your skin, including buying new, expensive skincare products, scheduling facials or chemical peels, and other skin rejuvenating treatments but haven’t been able to get the kind of results you’ve been hoping for, you may need something stronger, something like a laser treatment.

A Powerful Treatment You Can’t DIY

Laser treatments do what products and facials cannot. They break down and eliminate damaged skin cells and replace them with new, healthier cells. These treatments are powerful. You can’t buy a laser resurfacing device on Amazon; it must be performed by a trained professional who knows how to effectively and safely utilize the lasers to target your specific area of concern.

When you trust our office for your laser resurfacing needs, you will be met by professionals who will take excellent care of you from your initial consultation to your final treatment session. Our goal is to help improve your skin and exceed your expectations. We want you to achieve a beautiful and healthy complexion, free of those conditions, imperfections, and blemishes that can detract from your appearance and affect your confidence.

Who Is a Candidate?

The best candidates for this treatment are men and women who want to improve their skin, eliminate acne scars, and eradicate lesions or other imperfections that have been affecting their appearance and confidence for weeks to years. Whether you have significant skin concerns or simply want to improve your skin and address the signs of aging, we can choose the right laser treatment that will help you achieve the best results.

Some of these treatments will work better for those with specific skin types. At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your goals and your skin tone and type to determine if one of these treatments can help you achieve your desired outcome.
