About Laser Skin Resurfacing
During laser skin resurfacing, our practitioner uses a laser to revitalize your skin. The procedure may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. We also use it to correct issues with skin pigmentation including melasma, sun spots, and freckles. The procedure decreases the appearance of acne scarring, too.
Once we apply the laser, it removes the imperfections on your skin. It also stimulates collagen production to repair the skin, ultimately making your skin look healthier and younger.
Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing We Use
One type of laser we use is UltraPlus®. Of all the lasers for skin resurfacing, this is the most effective. It classifies as a CO2 laser, meaning it uses carbon dioxide. This particular laser outputs high-energy, short-pulsed beams, which allows our specialist more control. It’s more precise than many other options on the market.
Ultra Pulse is an innovative upgrade to traditional lasers. It tends to improve the appearance of your skin more so than most other lasers. You benefit from minimal downtime after the procedure. Our practitioner treats small columns on your skin. The physician leaves columns in between that don’t receive treatment. This helps with the recovery process and minimizes risks.
Lumenis Ultrapulse is another laser we use, and it also utilizes small columns of laser energy to correct fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and surface imperfections. When our physician uses it on your skin, it not only removes the flaws but also encourages collagen production. As it increases collagen, it stimulates your natural healing time.
What to Expect During a Laser Resurfacing Procedure
The first step of the process is your consultation with our aesthetic practitioner. At your consultation, we determine if you qualify for the procedure. For instance, if you have certain medical conditions, we may not be able to perform the treatment safely.
During your consultation, our physician will educate you on how to prepare for your procedure. You may need to stop taking certain medications such as aspirin approximately 10 days before the procedure. Additionally, you’ll need to stop smoking. You might receive a prescription for an antibiotic to prevent infections.
When you have the procedure, we give you a topical numbing agent to reduce your discomfort. If we perform a deeper skin resurfacing, we might give you intravenous sedation.
Generally, the entire procedure lasts between 30 to 45 minutes if we’re only performing resurfacing on half of your face. If we perform it on your whole face, it could take up to two hours. You may or may not have pain during the procedure. Several factors affect what the treatment feels like including your tolerance for pain, the lengths of the laser beam, and how deep the lasers go.
What to Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure
Usually, patients recover within 10 to 21 days. Swelling and discomfort are possible during this time. Beginning 24 hours after the procedure, you’ll need to start performing wound care to prevent infection.
