If aging, acne, or too much time in the sun has left your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines, Laser Skin Resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier.
Laser Skin Resurfacing removes skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger-looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face.
Lasers are monochromatic (mono meaning “one,” and chromo meaning “color”). Monochromatic means that a given laser emits light of only one wavelength (or color) of light. Lasers work in cosmetic applications through a process called “selective photothermolysis.”
Selective Photothermolysis means that it modulates the frequency of light (photo) to produce heat (Thermo) in the specific area of the corresponding thing you wish to destroy (lysis).
The wavelength of the light beam must be in sync with the color of the target, whether that be brown spots, unsightly red broken capillaries, or some other undesirable skin condition.
The Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedures we offer are:
ACNE LASER SKIN RESURFACING TREATMENT: Our favorite Acne Laser Skin ResurfacingTreatment is a combined option of RF Microneedling coupled with a topical and oral medication regime. RF Microneedling can reduce acne for up to 6 months post-treatment. Acne scarring can be treated with RF microneedling and CO2 laser resurfacing. See our RF Microneedling page and our CO2 laser page.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL: A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s growth.
CO2 LASER TREATMENT: Skin is treated with a series of CO2 Laser Treatment pulses to enhance skin tone and texture, eliminate the effects of the sun resulting in aging of the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth out unsightly scars.
ROSACEA TREATMENT: The Gentle Max Pro laser is effective at treating diffuse redness and telangiectasias caused by Rosacea. Using this laser option to treat rosacea expedites results and improves clinical outcomes compared with topical or oral treatments alone.
BENIGN PIGMENTED LESION TREATMENT: Benign Pigmented Lesions are brown spots on the face, chest, hands, and arms are a common sign of aging. Our GentleMax Pro laser treats flat benign pigmented lesions quickly and effectively on lighter skin types
SPIDER VEIN LASER THERAPY: Spider veins are tiny varicose veins and telangiectasias. They are thin, threadlike veins that lie close to the skin’s surface and are commonly red or purple in appearance.

The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

She is extremely knowledgeable and instantly made me feel comfortable. Tonya exceeded my expectations. I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family. The entire staff were friendly and professional. I will definitely become a loyal client. Thank you Tonya and team!!!
