When our skin doesn’t look its best, it can significantly affect our confidence. That’s where laser skin therapy at The Spa at Charlottesville Plastic Surgery comes in. It can address a variety of skin concerns, including unwanted hair, pigmentation, and visible signs of aging in only a few treatment sessions.

About Laser Skin Therapy

With laser skin therapy, we use Forever Young BBL and the specialized Sciton non-ablative laser system to resurface the skin and break down redness, brown spots, sun damage, and uneven texture. The laser deeply penetrates the skin and attacks blemishes under the skin, allowing them to come to the surface and fake and fade away.

But beyond skin blemishes, the Sciton laser also addresses unwanted hair and broken capillaries as well. If you’re looking for smooth, beautiful, and healthy skin, laser skin therapy at The Spa may be the perfect treatment.

Who is a Candidate?

Most individuals are good candidates for laser skin therapy. That being said, some qualifications make certain patients better candidates than others.

You may be an ideal candidate for laser skin therapy if:

  • You’re in overall good health.
  • You have realistic expectations and a positive outlook.
  • You’re not pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You’re struggling with fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and other skin irregularities.

The Laser Skin Therapy

Laser skin therapy will begin with your provider cleaning the treatment area and applying a numbing cream. From there, they will use the Sciton laser handheld device on your skin to address pigmentation, surface wrinkles, unwanted hair, and other skin concerns.

As Sciton Forever Young BBL is a non-ablative treatment, it removes the uppermost skin cells. You’ll typically need one to three treatments over a few weeks or months to achieve the results you’re looking for.

For unwanted hair, you may need more treatments to target all the hair follicles in the treatment area.

Dr. Willis did a wonderful job with my surgery. He explained everything very well beforehand so I knew what to expect throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Willis for any plastic surgery procedures. His patient care coordinator Leah is excellent and always available to assist with any questions and concerns.

Dr. Willis and Leah have been so great to me in my cosmetic surgery experience. They always answer my questions, they are so kind. I couldn’t see myself going to anyone else.

Nothing but praise for Charlottesville Plastic Surgery. Dr. Willis explained everything he needed to do clearly and his work was top-notch. When needed, he made an immediate referral for me and explained exactly what I would expect from that. Great communication, efficient office.


Because the Sciton laser is non-ablative, there is very little downtime. You may have some swelling or redness for a few hours, but that should subside relatively quickly. You can use ice packs to minimize swelling.

Beyond that, you can resume your normal activities immediately. You may want to stay away from stronger skincare products like retinoids until your skin is no longer inflamed, but other products can be used after your laser treatment.
