Laser Skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that enhances the overall quality of your skin. It’s successful in treating skin conditions such as:
- Sunspots/Age Spots /Dark Spots
- Fine Lines/Wrinkles
- Acne Scars/Scars
During a skin rejuvenation procedure, the laser penetrates your skin and sends energy through areas such as age spots and scars. This energy breaks up the pigment in these areas and reduces their appearance on your skin. The laser treatments also stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin look years younger.
Dr. Sherman may recommend 2-3 treatments for optimal results.
Dr. Sherman evaluates the condition of your skin and reviews your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing treatments. He creates a customized plan for treatment based on your skin type and desired results.
Most treatments can be performed in under 1 hour. Of course, this depends on the size of the treatment area. During the procedure, Dr. Sherman applies a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort and provides protective glasses to keep your eyes safe from the laser lights.
Using a handheld device, Dr. Sherman touches the targeted areas of your skin. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Treatments are relatively pain-free.
Following treatment, Dr. Sherman applies a topical cream to protect the treated areas. Depending on which laser skin resurfacing treatment you opt for, the treatment may call for a cooling mask or special solution to reduce redness after the treatment.
As you heal, your skin may appear red and dry, and within a few days after treatment, you may experience peeling. As new skin continues to grow and may appear pink, and within a few weeks after you will see that your skin’s texture, pore size, and skin tone will show great improvement. Best results are seen within 2-3 months of the procedure.
Most treatments require between 1-7 days of downtime, of course, the more aggressive the treatment, the longer the downtime. CoolPeel™ Laser skin resurfacing is the latest treatment offering great results with little to no downtime at all. 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for best results.
With PICO Genesis treatments, you may experience redness of the face that typically resolves itself by the next morning.
ThreeForMe treatments can take five years off your appearance but may cost you 2-3 days of “social” downtime due to redness and swelling.
The most aggressive procedure, fractional ablative laser treatments, can help you look up to 10 years younger, but you may require a week of downtime.
Dr. Sherman can help you decide which treatment method suits you best. Schedule a consultation online or by phone to learn more about the benefits of laser skin resurfacing at New Skin Medical.
