Aging, acne, and too much time in the sun can all damage your skin. Leaving you with scars, wrinkles, blotches, and fine lines. To combat these issues, we offer laser skin resurfacing, helping your skin to look and feel, younger and healthier!
How does Laser Skin Resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing removed skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
The lasers penetrate the skin’s surface and using high-energy beams stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen. This collagen helps restore the lost facial volume due to age, as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and much, much more.
Side Effects or Downtime?
Side effects are also very limited. Occasionally patients may experience light swelling and light redness, however most of these side effects will disappear within a day or two. And your skin will continuously improve in the following days to weeks.
There is also very limited downtime, patients can generally return to their daily activities almost immediately. However, patients should avoid strenuous exercise, overexposure to sunlight, overly abrasive contact with the treatment area, and use of any topical creams that may cause damage to the area.
At your consult, we will examine your skin and the treatment area to determine whether you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing. Those on certain medications or using certain topical creams should alert their doctor before undergoing the procedure.
You should avoid aspirins, ibuprofen, and vitamin E supplements up to 10 days before your procedure, as these can affect your bloods ability to clot causing irritations during the process!
