Skin Rejuvenation at Big Sky Dermatology

You may not think of it as an organ, but your skin is the largest organ of your body. It also has the very complicated and important job of protecting you and your vital organs from the elements. Sun, wind, air pollution and environmental toxins are lurking all around you. Then there’s the aging process to complicate your skin’s life even more.

The good news is that our Laser Skin Treatment Center uses laser therapy to deliver enhanced skin rejuvenation with precision. We use wrinkle treatments such as Botox and tissue fillers, as well as the latest laser therapy to reduce or remove common signs of age and sun damage from your skin. Laser therapy can also be an effective treatment for:

Brown skin discoloration – Pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots) are darker than surrounding skin and therefore absorb more of the energy emitted by the laser.

Red skin discoloration – Vascular lesions (spider veins, rosacea, cherry angiomas, etc.) are heated preferentially by the laser, which weakens them and allows them to be absorbed by the body.

Prior to treatment, we will have a thorough consultation to make a diagnosis and prescription recommendation. We will discuss the benefits and side effects of laser therapy, along with your medical history. Laser therapy may last from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated. Most patients require one to four treatments, depending on the condition of their skin and the level of treatment they desire. After treatment, your skin may appear slightly swollen or flushed, although these symptoms typically subside within 24 hours.

It is important to limit sun exposure immediately after laser therapy. In most cases, sunspots and age spots darken and flake off after laser therapy, leaving behind normal skin. Veins and vascular lesions either disappear immediately or darken before being absorbed by the body.

Fraxel® Fractional Laser Technology helps restore your skin to its original, beautiful, youthful glow.

Patient Reviews

"This appointment was my first ever visit with a dermatologist. I wanted to get a couple of spots looked at and get a baseline on my overall skin health. Dr. Shannon was very gentle and explained everything she was doing. She answered my questions to my satisfaction."
