What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a leading-edge mode of treatment that can address wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and additional flaws found on the exterior of the skin. The laser is moved over the area being treated and depending on the depth of the wrinkle, scar or discoloration, the laser may be moved over the area repeatedly. The laser penetrates and removes the number of outer skin layers necessary to uncover the layer not affected by imperfections and feels like a rubber band is being gently snapped against your skin. Once that layer is exposed, healing can begin to rebuild new skin that looks younger and does not have the imperfections.
How long does a laser skin resurfacing treatment session take?
The area being treated and what you would like to accomplish through this procedure will determine how long your session may take.
Is anesthesia of any kind used for laser skin resurfacing?
For deeper laser treatments performed by the physician, a topical anesthetic will be used to make you feel more comfortable.
How many laser skin resurfacing treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you may need depends on your aesthetic goals as well as your skin. The procedure may be performed in two or more sessions to penetrate deeper areas and you may need a series of such treatments before you achieve the desired results.
What can I expect following a laser skin resurfacing treatment?
While patients may experience results of younger-looking skin after treatment with laser skin resurfacing, results will vary from person to person. Patients may experience a slight redness in their skin. Depending on the extent of the resurfacing performed will ultimately determine how soon you may resume your activities. Meet with Dr. Gutowski and his team to learn more about what you may expect after a laser skin resurfacing.
