What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
- Posted on: Dec 11 2014
Patients looking to reverse the signs of aging, as well as eliminate blemishes and acne scars often look into laser skin resurfacing as a way to turn back the clock. Our patients are often pleased with the results of the laser skin resurfacing procedure.
What is the process of laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing removes the skin layer by layer. The skin cells are essentially eliminated through this precise laser-guided process, resulting in new skin cells developing during healing. The resulting skin is then tighter and younger-looking than the original skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is also beneficial to patients looking to combine the procedure with our other services. It’s also an outpatient procedure and takes typically one to two hours.
What can laser skin resurfacing treat?
Individuals looking to take care of crow’s feet, blotchiness, acne, chicken pox scars and potentially precancerous growths often turn to laser skin resurfacing.
What is the recovery time for laser skin resurfacing?
Your face may itch or sting a bit for a couple days after surgery. About a week or so after surgery, your face will become dry and will begin to peel. Healing usually takes a little over a week to three weeks for the average patient, though, of course, that varies.
Oil-free makeup is usually recommended to reduce redness, post-recovery.
