Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A
What skin conditions improve with laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is recommended to treat skin changes associated with aging and common skin issues, such as:
- Scars from acne or chickenpox
- Enlarged oil glands on the nose
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Aged or sun-damaged skin
- Liver spots
- Non-responsive skin after a facelift
- Uneven skin tone
If you’re bothered by any of these skin conditions, skin laser resurfacing is a safe and effective way to get the appearance you desire. Don’t hesitate to contact World Wellness Health Institute to schedule a consultation — Dr. Lebowitz can answer your questions and help you choose the best treatment for your skin.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
A variety of lasers and techniques can be used to resurface your skin. One type of laser resurfacing removes thin layers of skin across the targeted treatment area. One or more layers of skin may be removed during the treatment, depending on your skin needs, effectively removing skin imperfections that are replaced with new skin.
A second type of laser skin resurfacing reaches into deep layers of skin without harming the top layers. As heat from the laser destroys specifically targeted tissues below the skin, the body naturally produces new collagen and elastin. This tissue gradually moves up to form the top layer of skin and your skin tightens, becomes stronger and better toned, and discolorations and fine wrinkles diminish.
What can you expect during and after the procedure?
Dr. Lebowitz takes the time to talk with you about how the procedure works and what to expect during the procedure. Your comfort is important, so he answers your questions and talks about using a topical anesthetic.
After either type of laser treatment is finished, your skin appears and feels like you have a mild sunburn. If you have resurfacing that removes layers of skin, you may need to plan on taking a few days of downtime to recover. About 5 days after this type of procedure, the treated area peels, revealing rejuvenated skin.
Skin care and sun protection is essential following laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Lebowitz gives you instructions that fit your individual procedure and skin needs. In addition to using a sunscreen, you may need to apply protective skin care treatments or diligently use a moisturizer.
