AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?

You have many factors to think about when selecting which kind of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you have skin damaged by the sun, age spots, acne scars, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness issues, a laser skin resurfacing procedure can be needed to address these complexion blemishes. Also, laser skin resurfacing works wonders for those who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing isn’t suggested for anyone who has very dark skin or active acne outbreaks. Additionally, it is important to be aware that there is downtime associated with these laser therapy. Certain patients, depending on their skin condition, may need as much as 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.

 WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A LASER SKIN RESURFACING SESSION?

After less aggressive laser skin resurfacing treatments, a healing ointment will be applied to the treated skin and you can go home to recover. The treated skin may appear red, and there may be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms usually subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process typically lasts over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. If you are receiving a more intense laser treatment, your recovery time will last longer. The treatment areas may be protected with dressings, and the irritation, swelling, and burning side effects will be stronger. Pain medication can be prescribed to help reduce these symptoms. The downtime for a more intense resurfacing treatment can last several weeks. Every patient should limit their UV exposure after their resurfacing session and use sun protection regularly. For all laser skin resurfacing treatments, the skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away. It’s crucial to avoid picking at the peeling skin to prevent scarring and to shield the treated area from sun exposure. After the peeling is completed, the treated skin will feel softer while looking rejuvenated, clearer, and younger.
