As a highly accomplished Denver facial cosmetic surgery specialist, Dr. Nick Slenkovich is proud to offer patients an extensive range of surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. One of the more popular non-surgical facial beautification procedures he performs is laser skin resurfacing, or a laser peel. Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that provides you with smoother, more youthful appearing skin and a more uniform skin color and surface texture.

Laser peels may be an excellent solution for you if you have:

  • fine wrinkles in your skin
  • course wrinkles in your skin
  • an uneven skin surface as a result of acne scars
  • small skin growths
  • age spots or discolored areas

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

During a laser facial procedure, a pulsed laser light penetrates the skin, removing small columns of tissue and depositing heat into the deeper layers of the skin. In this way, the damaged, superficial layers of skin are able to slough off, while the deeper layers of cells are stimulated to produce fresh, healthy cells and more collagen and elastin fibers, which provides your skin with youthful suppleness, tightness, and tone.

Laser Skin Resurfacing, Colorado Plastic Surgery

Colorado Plastic Surgery Center offers two unique options for laser skin resurfacing treatments:

The procedures are usually done on an outpatient basis under local sedation or topical numbing. Laser skin resurfacing can be done by itself or in combination with other procedures. Special skincare products are also utilized both prior to and after the procedure to maximize results and recovery.

What is Recovery Like?

Healing from laser skin resurfacing will be complete within 7 to 14 days. Redness or pinkness of the skin will usually last one month, but may last up to six months depending upon the strength of the treatment and an individual’s sensitivity. Makeup can be worn starting on day five to camouflage any residual redness until healing is complete.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.
