What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a versatile skin rejuvenation treatment that uses laser energy to carefully exfoliate the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is often the recommend skin rejuvenation treatment because it can simultaneously exfoliate aged or damaged skin and stimulate collagen production. These treatments can be as gentle or as aggressive as you’d like. Laser skin resurfacing is a suitable solution for the following cosmetic concerns:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Scars and acne scars
- Age spots or sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- And more
Am I A Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
If you would like to address any of the cosmetic skin concerns listed above, you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for laser skin resurfacing is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if laser skin resurfacing is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Like?
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will vary depending on your treatment goals, which will determine the intensity of the laser treatment. These procedures can be done in the office with a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic, or can be done in the operating room with a light sedation. A handheld laser device will be used to carefully exfoliate the skin.
You may feel a warm or tingling sensation as the handpiece is moved across the skin. Laser skin resurfacing may take up to an hour to perform, depending on the intensity of the treatment and your desired treatment area.
What is the Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery Process Like?
After laser skin resurfacing, you can expect the skin to be red and sensitive, much like the effects of a sunburn. Of course, these symptoms will vary depending on the intensity of your treatment. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a week of treatment. However, it is important to use sunscreen and avoid excessive sun exposure in order to keep the skin protected while it heals.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The results from your laser skin resurfacing treatment will become visible as the skin heals and collagen is created in the skin. You may begin to notice results within a few weeks, with optimal results developing about 6 months later. For deep wrinkles, acne scars, or other moderate to severe concerns, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary.
