Laser Treatments in Nashville, TN

Located in Brentwood, and led by regenerative and restorative medicine specialist Dr. Morgan Moor, New Life Physicians performs various laser treatments to rejuvenate the skin of men and women from Nashville, Franklin and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.

At New Life Physicians, we offer some of the latest laser skin rejuvenation procedures that are designed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and skin that’s been damaged by acne, age or the sun. All of our advanced skin laser treatments are non-invasive and require minimal recovery time, making skin rejuvenation simple and convenient for our patients.

Our cosmetic laser treatments can alleviate a range of skin imperfections and conditions, such as:

  • Minor acne scarring
  • Age spots
  • Skin discoloration
  • Sunspots and other forms of sun damage
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, creases and other tell-tale signs of aging

Dr. Moor will discuss your aesthetic goals during a complimentary one-on-one consultation. During this meeting, Dr. Moor will go over your medical history and evaluate the current condition of your skin to determine if laser skin rejuvenation is an ideal solution for you.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing makes firmer, more youthful skin possible by focusing concentrated laser energy deep into the skin to rebuild the body’s natural supply of protein while leaving the surrounding, healthy skin tissues undamaged. The advanced laser systems available at New Life Physicians can reverse signs of aging and skin damage with precision and stimulate the production of new collagen to reveal fresh, healthy skin.

For optimal results, most of our laser resurfacing procedures require multiple treatment sessions. However, the treatment process is gentle enough to permit minimal pain and downtime for patients who need to quickly resume their normal daily routine. Any swelling or redness that patients experience following treatment usually subsides within a few hours, and any subsequent discomfort can be managed with topical creams.

The Best Candidates for Laser Treatment

Men and women of all skin types who want to prevent or address early signs of aging may be an ideal candidate for laser resurfacing treatment. The laser’s precision-driven technology gives Dr. Moor complete control and the ability to only target specific areas, especially facial lines and wrinkles that tend to develop around delicate areas, such as the eyes and mouth of aging patients. Skin discoloration is always a risk when patients with olive, brown or black skin undergo laser resurfacing treatments, which is why Dr. Moor evaluates patients on an individual basis and takes a personalized approach to his recommended course of treatment for each patient.

The best candidates have realistic expectations for their results and understand that while laser skin resurfacing can enhance their overall appearance and self-esteem, the procedure will not completely diminish skin imperfections or prevent age-related skin imperfections in the future. Even if you experience dramatic results with the procedure, new lines will form with a repetitive amount of the following facial movements:

  • Chewing
  • Talking
  • Blinking
  • Squinting
  • Smiling

To preserve your final results, Dr. Moor will suggest an individual aftercare regimen, which may include maintenance treatments or high-quality sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. Before you undergo any laser skin resurfacing procedure, you must go over your expectations and desired outcome during an evaluation with Dr. Moor.

What Is the Cost of Laser Treatment in Nashville?

The cost of laser resurfacing treatment depends on the extent of your skin condition and the number of treatment sessions Dr. Moor recommends to achieve your desired outcome. At New Life Physicians, we offer financing to make the cost of treatment more affordable, and we also accept cash, checks and credit cards as forms of payment.

Getting Back to Normal

Slight redness, similar to a mild sunburn, is normal for a few weeks following laser skin resurfacing treatment. Dr. Moor may prescribe a topical cream that will accelerate the rate at which this color fades, but pinkness may remain for up to six months for certain patients. Patients can apply make-up to conceal or reduce their sunburned appearance in approximately two weeks. In some instances, patients develop sensitivities to makeup and skincare products they used prior to laser resurfacing treatment and had to change brands until their skin healed or avoid these products completely.

Above all, adequate protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays is the most important step in Dr. Moor’s prescribed aftercare regimen. Applying sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher will not only protect your skin from further sun damage, but it’ll also prolong the results of your laser resurfacing procedure. In addition to applying an adequate amount of sunscreen, you can protect delicate skin around the eyes by wearing protective lenses with 100 percent UVA and UVB filters and wear wide brim hats to provide shade for the face.

Your New Look

The final result of your skin resurfacing procedure won’t be apparent until several months have passed. Any signs of redness or swelling will gradually fade over time, revealing skin that is brighter, smoother and more youthful in appearance.

Your new skin will not be immune to the natural aging process, but with the proper sequencing of skin care products and sun protection, the results of laser resurfacing can be relatively long-lasting. However, age, sun exposure and natural facial movements will continue to affect your skin, and your face may eventually develop new lines over time.

Patients can maintain their rejuvenated appearance and prolong their results exponentially by avoiding excessive sun exposure and following Dr. Moor’s prescribed skin care regimen. Patients can also prevent and reduce new skin damage with periodic touch-up laser resurfacing treatments.
