While your skin cells naturally turn over off in time, there are ways to speed up the process so you can have a fresher complexion faster. Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive treatment that removes the damaged upper layer of skin from the face, neck, chest, or hands to reveal a smoother, clearer complexion. This can help minimize the appearance of certain skin blemishes, like uneven skin tone, pigmentation problems, fine lines, wrinkles, blotchiness, brown spots, some skin growths, and scars. In addition to the immediate improvements in your complexion, laser skin resurfacing stimulates the natural collagen production to help your skin become stronger and healthier overall. At ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County, we offer laser skin resurfacing with either Fraxel® or MedLite® C6, depending on your specific needs and concerns, for effective, long-lasting results.

"A few months ago I got treated for my cellulite with the Cellfina Treatment. I was treated by Dr. Bashey in Beverly Hills and could not be happier with my results. Being in my forties I honestly do not have the time for creams with my baby running around. Cellfina was a very quick treatment and long lasting that gave me the desired results I had no idea were possible. I chose to get this treatment well before bathing suit season, but honestly there was very little downtime and the recovery was quick.There was bruising for a month or so after, but once that went away I was able to see the extent of the results. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who has mild to severe dimpling and cellulite. It was an immediate mood boost and overall I feel like my confidence after having a kid is restored."- M.E. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2018
"Voluma Filler for my Face instead of Botox! AMAZING Results I was not Expecting! I recently went to see Dr. Bashey in Laguna Beach as the holidays are approaching and needed to get some Botox. I have received botox in the past and am familiar with it. I am in my mid-fifties and figured this was what I definitely needed. Dr. Bashey didn't just look at me and give me what I came in for, he sat down and really looked at my face, then went over different areas that could use help. Dr. Bashey is articulate and ended up injecting filler into my upper cheek area as well as Xeomon into my forehead. The filler ended up very naturally lifting my cheeks and face and also will last me he said up to 18 months or longer. I am extremely happy with my results and very thankful he took time with me to evaluate my needs. Dr. Bashey is extremely polite and made me feel comfortable with consulting before doing anything. I did not feel pressured and not much pain! I am looking forward to seeing him in the near furture for a for a chemical peel :)Thanks!"- N.H. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017

Laser skin resurfacing can help you improve the quality, texture, and tone of your skin without surgery or invasive treatments. You may benefit from laser skin resurfacing treatments at ZO Skin Centre® if you are concerned about a rough or leathery skin texture, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and other pigmentation problems, scars, skin growths, and blotchiness on your face, neck, chest, and hands.
What to expect
Depending on the area(s) being treated, your laser skin resurfacing treatment should take about 20 – 60 minutes. In one of our treatment rooms, you will be able to relax as your ZO® skin care professional cleans your skin and covers your eyes with protective shields. The technician will pass the laser over the skin, which will emit short pulses of laser energy. After the treatment, a moisturizer will be applied based on your skin type to soothe the treated areas. After the treatment, you are able to resume your normal activities, but you should avoid sun exposure. The treated skin may be red or swollen, but this should subside naturally in a few days. You should begin to see improvements to your complexion about 2 weeks after your treatment. Your technician can help you determine the best skin care products to use at home and when to schedule your next laser resurfacing treatment.
