Skin Resurfacing


If you dream of improving the texture and appearance of your skin and restoring a youthful, radiant glow, talk to us about our skin resurfacing treatments. Sun exposure, skin disorders, aging, and heredity all contribute unevenly toned skin, rough texture, and lines, wrinkles and creases. Our treatments can improve a wide range of skin problems, from the signs of age to acne scars, age spots, freckles and sunspots.


Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Skin Resurfacing in Boulder

At Skin Deep MD, our skin resurfacing treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, all performed on an outpatient basis in our comfortable, welcoming clinic in the heart of Boulder, Colorado. All of our skin resurfacing treatments are overseen by our physician, Dr. Melody Denham to ensure highest quality results.

Recent innovations in laser technology enable a higher level of control, allowing for high precision, in treating even the most delicate skin areas. These advancements have made skin resurfacing far easier to experience and produce truly dramatic improvements.

Our treatments can involve concentrated beams of light to remove unwanted, damaged skin with meticulous care, one layer at a time. The ICON laser works to remove the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. At the same time, the dermis, or underlying skin, will be heated to promote tightening of the existing collagen fibers and triggering greater collagen production. As the treated area heals, new skin appears that is smooth, soft, youthful, and simply some of the best skin results you will see with laser skin resurfacing.

Expect minimal downtime and optimal results. Key advantages include:

  • Safe, effective treatments in as little as one visit
  • Various treatment areas including the face, chest, next and hands
  • Painless – no anesthesia or gels required
  • Risk of complications is minimal


Skin Resurfacing Can Help with These Common Skin Irregularities

Although skin resurfacing may not produce absolutely perfect skin, it can produce a remarkable improvement in the appearance of your skin.

  • Sun-damaged facial skin — sunspots
  • Wrinkles around your mouth causing lipstick to bleed
  • Fine lines around the eyes, or crow’s feet
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne or chicken pox scars


What to Expect During your Treatment

The ICON laser skin resurfacing can improve your skin’s texture with supple, fresh quality in a single treatment; although multiple treatments are recommended for superior results. With this non-surgical treatment, there is minimal recovery time. Treating facial flaws typically requires about 30 to 45 minutes. If you are treating the entire face, you may need to spend up to two hours with your aesthetician.

Recovery time varies person to person. You may feel itching or stinging for 12 to 72 hours after your procedure. This is normal. You can expect a longer recovery time if more aggressive laser work was done for more deeply damaged skin. Depending on the area that was treated, healing can occur in as little as three to five days. After your treatment with the ICON system, it is critical that you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which screens ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays, to protect your healing skin.

Skin resurfacing can produce a noticeable facial rejuvenation. Your team at Skin Deep MD will communicate each step of the treatment process with you, so you have a full understanding of what to expect. We look forward to getting to know you and your skin, and helping you look and feel your best with your skin glowing with health.


Your Results Depend on Experience

Who you choose for your skin care treatments matter. Our board-certified physician, registered nurse and master aesthetician are highly-skilled in skin resurfacing treatments. We stay ahead of the curve in the latest developments in laser technology and we perform hundreds of procedures annually. When treating your skin – you want to be confident that the procedure is performed correctly – avoid cut-rate offers or low quality spas – mistakes happen when a medspa has minimally-trained personnel, and you just can’t risk it.

Rest assured knowing that at Skin Deep MD, you will be in the hands of some of the most experienced skin resurfacing treatment specialists in the Boulder area. We are here to help you have glowing, healthy, smooth skin.
