Anyone researching laser skin resurfacing treatments is bound to come across so much information it’s overwhelming. Since 1996, Dr. Kimberly Finder has focused on advanced cosmetic medicine, and is an expert in a multitude of laser treatment options that may be right for you. At The Face & Body Place, we offer an array of laser skin resurfacing treatments to treat all your skin concerns.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Most laser treatments involve light or radiofrequency energy intended to target specific skin concerns, such as sun damage, pigmentation discoloration, rosacea, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, melasma, and uneven skin tone and texture. These pulses of energy react with structures within your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, improve hydration and blood flow, or create micro-injuries that spur the healing process to renew damaged skin cells and break up age spots and sun damage. But which laser system is right for you?
A Variety of Laser Rejuvenation Systems
Dr. Finder doesn’t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all approach. As such, she employs different technologies to pursue different outcomes:
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses light energy to treat facial redness, vivid blood vessels, flushing, rosacea, and abnormal pigmentation from sun damage. The Palomar Starlux™ 500 is her system of choice for these indications, which can treat the face, neck, and chest.
Infini™ is a Fractional Radiofrequency system that focuses on skin laxity, wrinkles, sun damage, acne issues, enlarged pores, and thin skin such as that around the eyes. Infini™ combines RF technology with microneedling at adjustable depths to treat beneath the skin’s surface. Infini™ doesn’t rely on skin tone, so all skin types are ideal. The precise tip with 49 insulated, gold-coated microneedles stimulates the skin’s collagen and elastin production, softens acne scars, and volumizes tissues in fewer treatments.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a two-part process in conjunction with the medication Amaluze™, which is painted on the skin for absorption by skin cells. Light then activates the medication, creating a chemical reaction to modify or remove damaged cells. Skin concerns such as sun damage, acne scarring, rosacea, and precancerous areas are targeted and diminished with this one-two punch.
PicoSure® Skin Revitalization treats acne scars, wrinkles, and uneven skin textures. It’s powerful enough to remove tattoos as well. PicoSure® doesn’t damage the skin’s surface, so there’s much less pain. The PicoSure® pulses create a chemical reaction in the skin to target discoloration spots, scarring, and wrinkles, heating these cells to alter them and create micro-injuries to the damage, stimulating the healing process to renew and repair these areas. Because the speed of the pulses creates more of a shockwave to damaged cells, it breaks them down without harming surrounding tissues, so PicoSure® works faster while remaining less painful.
Hollywood Laser Peel, officially called Spectra Peel, rejuvenates aging, sun damaged, uneven, pigmented, and wrinkled skin. Old acne scarring is treated as well as preventing new acne outbreaks. Gentle laser energy targets the melanin in your skin, breaking up discolored spots. Next, the heat from Spectra Peel stimulates collagen to increase skin support and minimize wrinkles and lines and repair poor textures and wrinkles.
