LASER SKIN RESURFACING
WHAT IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
One method of rejuvenating your skin and diminishing the looks of scars and facial blemishes is using Laser Skin Resurfacing. Our aesthetic specialists will use ablative and non-ablative lasers to remove the outer layer of your skin to stimulate and promote collagen production and improve the overall tone and texture of your skin.
HOW DO I KNOW IF LASER SKIN RESURFACING IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Depending on your skin condition and the areas needing treatment, your aesthetic specialist will create a personalized beauty plan to determine the type of laser to use and the number of treatments necessary to achieve your overall beauty goal.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
During your consultation, it’s important to disclose to your aesthetic expert your medical history, especially if you are prone to cold sores or the herpes virus around the mouth, as laser skin resurfacing may cause an outbreak to occur. To prevent an outbreak, you can receive a prescription for antiviral medication.
Your personalized treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure with the option of a local or intravenous anesthesia. You will need to arrange to have someone take you home. Your treatment may last 30 minutes to two hours but depends on the number of areas we will treat.
Your skin needs seven to 10 days to heal before resuming your normal activities because your skin will feel very raw, like a sunburn. You will receive a prescription cream after the inflammation has subsided to reduce the remaining redness.
Between 10 to 21 days after your Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment, you will see a remarkable difference in the tone and texture of your skin. You must limit your sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen. A specific post-operative plan is provided for you to follow to keep your skin looking radiant and lasting for seven to 10 years.
