WHAT IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective and efficient ways to correct and treat skin that is damaged or aged. Through the use of highly-specialized lasers, that can be adjusted to suit each and every treatment condition, your skin will be revitalized as dead and damaged skin cells are removed. 

Since we use the best laser skin resurfacing techniques, the treatment can be utilized for an array of different conditions, and is fully capable of reducing and drastically improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and spots. 

 
 
 

WHO IS A LASER SKIN RESURFACING CANDIDATE?

Laser resurfacing is a very patient-friendly procedure that is available and appropriate for most patients that are looking to renew damaged skin surfaces. If you have skin that is damaged or aged, you are likely a perfect candidate for laser skin resurfacing. 

 
 
 

WHAT DOES THE LASER SKIN RESURFACING PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

After the skin has been cleaned, we will apply a topical anesthetic cream to numb the area, so as to ensure that you are completely comfortable during the procedure. Once the medication has set, we will wipe clean the medication and place laser shields over your eyes. The laser session will take approximately 20-30 minutes for a complete treatment of your face, and a portion of your neck. Once the treatment is complete, we will apply a medicated balm to moisturize and promote healing.

For more extensive resurfacing, such as on severe sun damaged or wrinkled skin, we perform this procedure under sedation. This will ensure a more effective and comfortable experience. Once the treatment is complete, your skin will be soothed with a combination of Regenica and antibiotic ointments. Proper care for your skin during the recovery period is essential to prevent any complications in the healing process. 

Dr. Rice has found that epidermal growth factors in Regenica significantly improve the rate of recovery for patients that have undergone laser resurfacing treatment. This topical product is highly recommended to all patients, especially those that have chosen laser skin resurfacing. 

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE LASER SKIN RESURFACING RECOVERY PERIOD?

The recovery period for any laser resurfacing is largely dependent upon the amount of treatment that you need, and the severity of your situation. For mild treatments, your healing period should last approximately 2 weeks, and that includes time away from work. In addition, it is suggested that you avoid using makeup for 10-12 days, and abstain from exercise for 3-4 weeks. 

 
 
 

LASER SKIN RESURFACING RESULTS:

As with most high-level forms of skin treatment, the results are often significant and very noticeable. Whether you are treating damaged skin, wrinkles, or anything in between, you can expect to see a significant improvement, not only in your target areas, but in your overall facial complexion. There will be permanent improvements to your skin, and if a proper skincare regiment is followed, your results should last for ten years or more.
