Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Do you have acne or other facial scars, uneven skin tone or texture, enlarged pores, fine lines or sun damage that you wish to eliminate? At Musick Dermatology led by our medical director and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Steven Musick, we’re proud to offer non-invasive laser treatments to patients just like you, designed with little downtime to bring you a renewed glow that will leave you looking refreshed!
Lasers We Use At Musick Dermatology
At Musick Dermatology, we use the Sciton Joule Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser, the Sciton Joule BBL (Broad Band Light) and the Syneron Candela CO2RE Laser. The laser we use depends on the particular conditions you would like to treat.
Halo is a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that treats discoloration, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. It is a dual wavelength process that incorporates a cooling system to ensure complete comfort throughout the treatment. One wavelength helps reduce pigmentation and discoloration of the skin by targeting the outer layer (epidermis). The other wavelength penetrates the skin even deeper to reverse the damage below the skin.
BroadBand Light (BBL)
The BroadBand Light (BBL) is an innovative technology that targets many skin conditions including acne, aging, and sun damage. With this laser technology, our practice is able to tailor your treatment to match your specific skin type and your desired results. We offer both Forever Young BBL which helps target unwanted brown and red areas, and Forever Clear BBL which targets acne.
CO2 Fractional Laser
C02RE Laser Treatment – Skin Resurfacing: The CO2 fractional laser treats the skin’s surface, mid and deep layers. Experience dramatic changes to the tone and texture of the skin. CO2 treatments minimize or eliminate wrinkles, acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots, decreases pore size and rhinophyma (rosacea nose). It is an ideal treatment for anyone wanting to improve their complexion and achieve younger looking skin that will feel softer and smoother. The patient can expect one to two weeks of “down time” with red, peeling skin when the skin will exfoliate naturally. Generally, one treatment is needed to realize the desired results.
Which Symptoms Can Our Lasers Treat?
If you desire softer, smoother skin, or if you no longer want to suffer from any of the following, our laser treatments may be for you:
- Scar revision

These treatments are comfortable with quick results. Both men and women are great candidates!
How Long Does the Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Take?
Treatments typically take approximately 30 minutes to one hour for a laser rejuvenation session. Some of our treatments require a numbing medicine before to keep you comfortable.
One of our expert providers will evaluate your skin and overall goals to work with you to come up with a customized treatment plan to help you target your specific needs. In addition, you and your skincare professional will work together to determine how many sessions you will need to achieve the desired result.
Are Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing Sessions Covered by Insurance?
No, laser skin rejuvenation sessions are not covered by health insurance. However, please ask our Musick Dermatology team about our multiple patient financing offers.
What Is the Downtime Associated with Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing Sessions?
Downtime varies with the different laser skin rejuvenation treatments. Many have little or no downtime! We do tell our patients to keep their skin protected for the first 24 hours after the procedure. Minimal sun exposure, or at least careful sun protection, is required to obtain maximum results. Your skin will continue to improve for months to come!
