A SKIN RESURFACING PROCEDURE CAN REVERSE YEARS OF DAMAGE AND TO REVEAL HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL SKIN.

As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, causing it to wrinkle, develop sun spots and look tired. A skin resurfacing procedure can reverse years of damage and to reveal healthy, beautiful skin. 

There are two approaches to laser resurfacing: full field, and fractional. In full field resurfacing, the entire surface area of the skin is treated. The body will naturally replace the old, damaged skin that was removed, with a fresh, healthy layer. Treatments can range from shallow (which might be appropriate for eliminating fine lines, sun spots and tired-looking skin) to deep (which is often used to improve skin tone/texture and eliminate deep wrinkles, even in difficult areas like upper lip lines and crow’s feet). 

In fractional resurfacing, the laser removes pinpoint columns of skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This approach allows the laser to controllably ablate and coagulate tissue to variable depth, while the surrounding intact tissue promotes more rapid healing than full field resurfacing.

RESURFACING FAQs

What will happen during this procedure?

Your skin in the treatment area is cleaned and your eyes are protected with safety shields. The provider positions the laser over the skin while a computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam in the designated treatment area. The procedure usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

Will it be uncomfortable?

The level of comfort varies from patient to patient depending largely on the depth of treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is well tolerated with the use of a topical anesthetic. For deeper treatments, your provider may administer a local anesthetic.

How long will it take to recover?

Complete healing depends largely on the depth of treatment. Healing times for shallow treatments are typically 2-4 days. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with your provider.

What aftercare do I need?

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure.

Avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. Always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
