The power of light, harnessed and utilized to repair age lines and redness. Reverse the effects of aging with this unique and non-invasive procedure, which can help to alleviate your reddened skin or smooth out your wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated beams of light to help you reach your desired facial features. Preparation for a laser skin resurfacing begins weeks before the procedure will take place, as you will undergo a series of facial treatments that will prepare your skin for the resurfacing. The laser used in the procedure removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and heats the layer beneath (dermis) simultaneously, stimulating the growth of collagen. When the epidermis heals, post-op, it will be healthier and smoother than before. There is a degree of discomfort involved with lasers, but rest assured that Dr. Washington will be sure to lessen this pain by using local anesthetics. Overall, the procedure takes between a half hour to two hours to complete.
If you are seeking a less expensive, non-surgical, non-invasive way to achieve a more youthful appearance, then skin resurfacing checks off all your boxes of concern and is the right procedure for you.
What should I expect after skin resurfacing procedure?
Recovery time is a process that should be handled with care. Immediately post-op, the treated skin will feel almost like a sunburn, with mild irritation and redness. It must be cleaned several times on each of the first few days after treatment with saline, and the area will dry and begin to peel after five days. Healing skin that is growing back will be pink in appearance, but that color will fade in time – up to a year – and leave you looking rejuvenated and younger.
