What is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment in which lasers are used to remove the outer layers of the skin that often show the signs of aging, sun damage and other skin imperfections. Lasers also stimulate collagen production deep within the layers of the skin. The results reveal a smoother, even-toned complexion. With laser resurfacing, clinicians are able to treat the targeted areas without damaging healthy skin cells in the process.

Is Laser Resurfacing Right for Me?
If your skin has an uneven tone, shows signs of aging, has sun damage or simply looks dull, laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. There are a lot of options to correct imperfections so we recommend you schedule a consultation to let us evaluate your skin and decide which cosmetic treatment offers the best results. Laser resurfacing is effective at treating superficial skin imperfections.
How Laser Resurfacing is Performed
Each type of laser treatment is different in its process; however, the general idea is precisely removing damaged layers of skin one at a time. A laser device directs short bursts of beams of light energy at the targeted area of skin. As the light beams hit the area, they remove the skin imperfections. The lasers are so precise that they remove each layer of the damaged skin without harming the healthy tissue while at the same time, stimulating deeper layers of skin to increase collagen production. The result is new, smoother skin that is healthier looking. As the treatment is done, moist dressings are applied to provide relief and speed the healing process. The entire procedure takes between 30 minutes and an hour.
Laser Resurfacing Recovery
The recovery depends on the type of laser treatment performed. For the most part, it is important to keep the skin clean. Patients receive an ointment to apply on the targeted areas for the first week. If necessary, bandages may be placed over the areas for a few days. During the initial recovery period following laser resurfacing, it is important to keep the areas moist and avoid makeup. Initially, do not allow any sun on the face, then limit it for the first year always applying sunscreen. The skin peels away within a week or two. There may be visible improvements immediately that continue to improve over the next few months. Depending on the extent of the skin imperfections, multiple treatments may be required.
