Can I Get Laser Skin Resurfacing?
You have several factors to think about when choosing which method of laser skin resurfacing procedure is right for you. Laser skin resurfacing is geared toward people who are unsatisfied with their overall complexion. If you have skin damaged by the sun, acne scars, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, or redness troubles, a laser skin resurfacing treatment with Lutron icLaseMD ULTRA may be needed to improve these cosmetic flaws. In addition, it works wonders for those who have a rough texture, scaly patches, or other skin surface problems. Laser skin resurfacing is not suggested for anyone who has very dark skin or active acne. Also, it's important to be aware that there is a recovery period associated with this laser therapy. Some patients, based on their skin condition, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
What Happens During Laser Skin Resurfacing?
If you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense skin resurfacing session, you may be given a retinoid product a few weeks before your laser procedure. This helps prep the skin for maximum results. Medication may be given prior to the procedure to help lessen discomfort for greater relaxation throughout your session. If your complexion needs mild improvement, a local anesthetic may be used to numb certain areas where the Lutronic LaseMD ULTRA will target. For the whole face or deeper laser procedures, a type of sedation may be required. During the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over your skin, precisely targeting the needed surfaces for rejuvenation. You may feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to remove dead and damaged skin cells while also prompting natural collagen production.
What Can I Expect After My Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
For less aggressive laser skin resurfacing sessions in Silver Spring, MD, an ointment will be smoothed over the treated skin, and you can return home to recover. The treated skin may appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms will subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day period. If you are undergoing a more intense resurfacing treatment, your downtime will take longer. The treatment areas may be covered by dressings, and the irritation, burning, and swelling side effects may be stronger. Pain medication can be prescribed to help reduce these symptoms. The recovery period associated with a deeper laser session can last several weeks. All patients need to reduce their sun exposure following their resurfacing appointment and apply sun protection frequently. Regardless of the intensity, the treated skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It's vital to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to prevent scarring and shield your skin from environmental exposure. Once the peeling process has been completed, your skin should feel smoother while also appearing clearer, rejuvenated, and younger.
