Are you seeking a procedure to give your skin a more youthful, firm appearance with minimal recovery time? There are different devices available that can allow you to attain your desired appearance without sacrificing a large amount of your time to recovery.
Using a laser to eliminate minor flaws and improve your face’s appearance is a procedure called laser resurfacing. Done with either an ablative laser, which removes a thin layer of your epidermis to stimulate collagen growth, or non-ablative which skips the removal and simply acts to stimulate collagen growth, laser resurfacing can improve your complexion and overall facial skin tone.
Laser resurfacing can be used to treat a number of your facial concerns or problem areas, including skin tone, uneven texture, age spots, acne scars, and fine wrinkles. Side effects/risks include swelling, redness, the appearance of acne, a slight change in skin tone, and scarring.
Dr. Washington’s goal for you is to help give you a natural appearance that will give you a commanding sense of confidence.
Dr. Washington, in addition to giving your face a thorough examination, will discuss any potential risks with you, as well your expectations and motivations, to make sure you are a good candidate for this procedure.
What should I expect after laser resurfacing surgery?
Recovery time for ablative surgery typically takes about a month, as your skin will be swollen and/or itchy. Ice packs and pain relievers help with these minor issues. Non-ablative is minimal, with most patients resuming their usual skin routines and activities immediately.
