Skin Resurfacing Q & A

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser are being used in more and more cosmetic practices for amazing results. They work by emitting a specialized light that passes through the skin and is then absorbed by the water in the damaged collagen of your skin. This action allows the laser light to evaporate the very fine layers of the skin, resulting in diminishing the look of wrinkles or other unwanted textures. During skin resurfacing, the older skin is remodeled into newer skin and as new cells form in the healing process, the skin becomes smoother and softer. Several lasers and light sources are available today for skin resurfacing. For example, Skin Resurfacing  is also done with Radio-Frequency device, Venus Viva. This machine can even out skin irregularities, minimize pore size, diminish acne Scars, firm and tighten skin, reduce or eliminate necklace lines, and give a fresh and radiant look.

What is the procedure like?

Laser resurfacing is done as an outpatient procedure. Treatment may include the wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead. These may be addressed individually or during treatment for your entire face. For smaller areas, the doctor will numb the areas to be treated with a local anesthetic. If requested, you may get general anesthesia if your whole face is being treated. The process can take anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour for a full face treatment. Following the procedure, you will need to clean the treated areas four to five times a day and then apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabs from forming.

What are the benefits to skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing can offer patients many benefits. The procedure is non-invasive and provides consistent results that last for many years. Skin resurfacing improves the health and appearance of skin scarred by acne or damaged by sun or chemicals. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer wrinkles. For most people, after about two to four weeks they can resume their daily activities.
