5 Areas of Your Body that Respond Well to Skin Resurfacing

When people think about anti-aging treatments, they usually think about what they can do for the face. And, certainly, you have access to a broad variety of face-transforming treatments. But very few anti-aging services offer improvement to the other areas of your skin affected by aging. 

We want to change that. At Forever Bella Med Spa in Del Rio, Texas, Jaime Gutierrez, MD, and our skin care specialist Edith Peterson use skin resurfacing to transform your skin wherever you need it most. With this non-ablative, light energy-based treatment, we can rejuvenate your skin throughout your body. 

How skin resurfacing works

At Forever Bella Med Spa, Dr. Gutierrez and Edith use Sciton® Joule™ skin resurfacing technology. This device sends BroadBand Light™ (BBL™), an advanced form of intense pulsed light (IPL), into your skin. These targeted pulses of light energy break-up imperfections in your skin while turning back the clock. 

As it tightens your skin, skin resurfacing also clears away imperfections, including:

What’s more, we can deliver this care with next-to-no downtime. The recovery period after this non-ablative skin resurfacing is just a few days and the only thing you need to worry about is some slight redness during it. 

For more even, tighter, rejuvenated skin, don’t wait to ask any of our Forever Bella Med Spa team about skin resurfacing.

Where skin resurfacing works

Skin resurfacing isn’t just a multi-use, minimal downtime treatment. It’s also versatile. Edith and Dr. Gutierrez use this treatment to help our patients clear the signs of aging wherever their skin needs it. Skin resurfacing works for the:


An obvious application for skin resurfacing, the face needs care throughout the years because it gets so much exposure to the sun and its skin is so fragile. Whether you’re dealing with age spots, spider veins, skin laxity, or another sign of aging, our team can use laser resurfacing to improve your appearance. 


The neck gets nearly as much sun exposure and the skin is just as thin and fragile as the skin of the face. If sagging skin along your neck makes your look older, don’t wait to ask our team about skin resurfacing.


If you’ve got loose, age spot-marked skin on your knees, consider laser resurfacing. With this treatment, we can help you feel confident in shorts and skirts again. 


Are the tops of your shoulders marked by all of the sun they’ve seen through the years? We can give you more even, radiant skin. You have the right to bare arms and with skin resurfacing, we can help you feel great as you do. 


Another area of regular sun exposure, the décolleté — the upper portion of your chest — is often one of the first areas to develop age spots, wrinkles, and other signs of the passage of time. That doesn’t mean you have to choose high-necked shirts, though. With skin resurfacing, we can turn back the clock for your décolleté. 

Are you ready for more even, younger-looking skin on your face, neck, knees, shoulders, and décolleté? To get started with skin resurfacing, call our Forever Bella Med Spa office or make your appointment online today.
