How does it work?
A surgical laser emits bursts of radiation that cause the skin cells to vaporize. The doctor evenly applies laser energy to the targeted areas. The laser beam's intensity, movement and penetration depth can all be controlled. In most cases, only 1-2 treatments are needed to reveal healthy, clear skin.
What happens after laser skin resurfacing?
After your laser skin resurfacing, you may experience some swelling and redness as your skin begins to repair itself. During recovery, the doctor may ask you to apply an ointment to your skin and avoid sun exposure. Total recovery time varies, depending on the extent of your treatment. Common side effects include redness and swelling, which should subside within a few days.
What are the alternatives to laser skin resurfacing?
During your appointment, we may recommend alternatives like chemical peels, dermabrasion or microdermabrasion treatments. All of these can help remove the damaged surface skin cells, giving your skin a more refined and youthful appearance.
