Laser SkinLaser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser skin resurfacing?

 

Laser skin resurfacing is an aesthetic procedure that uses laser technology to prompt your body’s natural healing power. It’s a popular option for those looking for noticeable results without the downtime associated with more invasive treatments.

The process uses a fractional laser to direct heat into the deeper layers of your skin, leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. That heat stimulates new collagen production, also known as collagen remodeling.

As those new collagen cells develop, they plump and smooth your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a good treatment approach for:

    • Uneven pigmentation
    • Acne and acne scarring

 

  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Age and sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

One of the reasons so many men and women choose laser skin resurfacing is the ability to address more than one skin issue at the same time. That saves time and money, which is always welcome.

 

What happens during laser skin resurfacing?

The process begins with a gentle cleansing. Your practitioner then passes the treatment handpiece over the surface of your skin in a pattern of vertical and horizontal movements. You may feel a slight burning or prickling sensation during your session, but the experience is not painful.

 

Treatments usually take less than 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. If you have especially sensitive skin, a numbing cream can help reduce sensations during your session.

 

What happens after laser skin resurfacing?

Prior to your appointment, your practitioner outlines the results you can expect to achieve from this treatment. Having the right expectations is important, especially if you’re weighing the pros and cons of various options.

After your treatment, your skin may be slightly red or tender. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after your session, and you can wear makeup to mask any redness that occurs.

 

It’s important to keep your skin properly moisturized as the healing process moves forward. You should also take care to protect your skin from UV rays with a quality sunscreen. If you notice any swelling or sensitivity, cold compresses can help.  

The results of your treatment will be apparent within a few weeks as your body produces a new layer of collagen. With proper skin care and rigorous sun protection, you can expect those results to last for years.
