At Annapolis Plastic Surgery, we use the latest in aesthetic laser technology to deliver you with the safest, fastest and most comfortable laser skin resurfacing treatments, including MicroLaserPeels™, ProFractional Therapy™ and TRL Deep Resurfacing.
The advantage of the erbium laser is that it has the ability to vaporize tissue while creating very little heat (compared to the CO2 laser). This keeps the surrounding skin more comfortable and promotes accelerated healing.

Laser Resurfacing Treatments, Annapolis
The MicroLaser Peel uses light energy to instantly remove the uppermost layers of skin to accelerate the skin’s renewal response. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels remove top layers of skin to reveal new skin below, but they don’t get deep enough to send a signal to messenger cells which communicate with deep layers of skin. Only the MicroLaser peel can target the right depth to create beautiful, luminous skin.
ProFractional therapy achieves excellent results with minimal downtime. Full field laser skin resurfacing removes the entire surface area of a treatment site. ProFractional covers only a fraction of the total area with micro-ablated channels in the skin. This fractional approach activates fibroblast production – a natural wound healing response, and leaves surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. ProFractional can be used on all skin types, both on face and body.
Contour TRL™ (Tunable Resurfacing Laser)
With Contour TRL, our plastic surgeons are able to fine tune the precise level of skin resurfacing – from a full field which targets deep layers of skin to MicroLaser Peel which targets the superficial layers of skin and everything in between. This unique ability to customize treatment means our doctors can tailor treatment to your exact needs and desired results, as well as your tolerance for downtime.
- Fine lines, wrinkles and facial folds
- Scars including acne, surgical and other types of scars
- Hyperpigmentation including sun spots, age spots, etc.
- Loose skin including upper and lower blepharoplasty
- Poor skin tone/texture
Often times, the doctor will recommend a combination of laser skin resurfacing treatments to achieve the best results. Many of these treatments can be performed in combination with one another or laser therapies can be combined with other treatments such as a facelift, dermal fillers or medical grade skin care services.
How Much Does Sciton Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
There is a wide range of cost for laser skin resurfacing. The cost of treatment depends on numerous factors including:
- Age and condition of skin
