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, 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.
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.
