Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you wish to improve your skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, laser skin resurfacing is a med spa treatment to consider. This procedure removes the outer layers of skin to help boost new skin and collagen growth. You can feel restored and rejuvenated with younger-looking skin to improve your self-confidence.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
Laser skin resurfacing works by using pulsating beams of light to remove damaged layers of skin. This helps stimulate collagen growth for firmer and smoother skin. Before the procedure, your face will be numbed with medication. If you are planning to have your whole face done, sedation may be required. Treatment can take between 30 minutes and two hours.
Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary before optimal results are achieved. A thick ointment and dressing may be applied after the procedure. New skin can appear in two weeks, and it can take several months for your skin to fully heal. You may need to avoid sun exposure without sunscreen for the first year. Activities that involve immersion in water will also need to be avoided during recovery.
Ideal Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you are considering laser skin resurfacing, you will need to set up a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. This consultation is essential for receiving education about the procedure and determining if you are medically healthy. You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant or have an autoimmune disease. Certain medications may increase the risk for complications.
