What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with a laser at Contemporary Dermatology is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to remove dead and damaged skin cells one layer at a time. The treatment is performed for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for minimizing skin irregularities, such as pigmentation, acne scars, unsightly veins, and more. Laser skin resurfacing is considered a great facial treatment for people desiring clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the needs of the patient's skin type, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some downtime needed for most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert Nossa in Marstons Mills, MA to learn more.

Am I A Candidate For Laser Skin Resurfacing?

You have multiple factors to consider when choosing which method of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing in Marstons Mills, MA at Contemporary Dermatology is geared toward patients who are unsatisfied with their skin's overall appearance. If you see skin damaged by the sun, age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness troubles, a laser skin resurfacing procedure can help improve these imperfections. Also, it works effectively if you have rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. This treatment isn't recommended if you have very dark skin tones or active acne. Additionally, it is important to be aware that there is a recovery period associated with this laser therapy. Certain patients, depending on their skin condition, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks for their skin to heal and normalize.

Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique

A topical anesthetic may be used prior to the procedure to help reduce discomfort during your session. During the procedure, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting the designated surfaces for rejuvenation. You may feel heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser energy works to destroy dead and damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth. After laser skin resurfacing, there may be some irritation and swelling. This should subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. If you are getting a more intense laser procedure, your recovery time will last longer. All patients should reduce their UV exposure and use sun protection throughout the day. Regardless of the intensity, the treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away. Once the peeling is finished, your skin will feel softer while looking rejuvenated, younger, and clearer.

Laser skin resurfacing FAQs

Should I get laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel?

Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels are two popular kinds of cosmetic treatments. However, a chemical peel may not be a good option if you have sensitive or easily irritated skin. Contemporary Dermatology is proud to provide top laser tools and technologies that can help you look your best without resorting to harsh chemicals.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

Sun exposure should be avoided after any laser resurfacing treatment. Dr. Nossa recommends wearing SPF 30 or higher sunscreen and using wide-brimmed hats when spending any amount of time outdoors. Additionally, avoid skin care products with exfoliants that could aggravate the skin. Stick to gentle, non-abrasive products until your skin has fully healed.
