Benefits of a Skin Resurfacing

Our laser resurfacing treatment is specifically designed to reach your deeper skin layers and repair deeper cosmetic issues compared to other lasers., so you can feel like the best you! Here are some reasons people choose this treatment for their skin:

What It Is

Laser resurfacing is a detailed treatment that improves your skin’s texture and elasticity by using your body’s natural healing process. This is done with a laser that targets specific areas and removes your skin’s outer layers, which promotes the growth of new cells and collagen.

What It Treats

Skin resurfacing smoothes your skin’s tone and texture, encourages neocollagenesis to tone your complexion, reduces the appearance of visible sun damage, melasma, surgical or acne scars, and diminishes fine lines & wrinkles. When you want noticeable smoothing, repair and rejuvenation of skin without going through the process of a facelift, laser skin resurfacing is the way to go.

Skin resurfacing isn’t just for people who want to look radiant – it’s for everyone.

The Treatment Process

The doctor treating you may treat certain areas or your entire face. For small areas, the doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to help reduce pain, and may also sedate you.If your entire face is being treated you may require general anesthesia.

Your skin will be cleansed to remove any excess oil, dirt, and bacteria. Your doctor will then begin the treatment. During the treatment, the laser is moved slowly around the selected area of skin. Treating small areas of the face takes about 30 to 45 minutes, while a full-face treatment takes up to two hours.

Following the laser procedure, the doctor will bandage the treated areas of your face to protect the skin. You will be informed and given medical advice on how to properly take care of and maintain your skin for the next couple of days and weeks to ensure you get the best results and comfort.

We get many clients who are interested in the skin resurfacing treatment, but want to know more about the treatment. That is why we compiled answers to questions we frequently receive about this treatment and listed them below.

Can I get skin resurfacing done with other treatments?

Each treatment is unique, but generally, you will be advised to have other treatments a few weeks apart, as the laser treatment is very intensive and requires healing time. You could choose to get wrinkle injection, facial fillers, or other laser treatments once you’re fully healed from your skin resurfacing treatment.

You can expect visible results to appear in stages. You’ll begin to notice some improvement right away. However, full visible results take 3-6 months to appear. This is because fresh, new skin cells are developing, and your skin will be thickening, strengthening and producing new collagen during that time.

Depending on the problem that was treated, the entire healing process generally takes 10 to 21 days.

The healing process does require a lot of attention, and you must keep up your part to ensure it heals well. You may feel dry or itchy and notice some swelling, as well as notice some crusting or minor scabbing. While your skin is healing, you will feel an uncomfortable, tight pulling sensation on your skin; so it is extremely important to keep your face moisturized, as allowing your skin’s surface to dry out will cause it to pull even more.

Once your procedure is done, you’ll be given instructions for soaking, moisturizing and covering your skin in the first days. After 24 hours have passed after your treatment, you will need to clean the areas four to five times a day and apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabs from forming.

Yes, you must avoid sun exposure after your treatment. After a week of healing, you’ll need to wear sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat.
