What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a state-of-the-art, nonsurgical cosmetic treatment offered at The Skin Secret FL for patients who want to diminish the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles or address skin imperfections such as acne scars or dark spots. Sometimes called a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is an effective facial treatment for people who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin.

Depending on your skin care needs, the laser can be adjusted to deliver remarkable results with minimal downtime.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

There are many factors to think about when choosing which method of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for anyone who is unsatisfied with their skin's appearance. If you have skin damaged by the sun, age spots, acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, or redness issues, this procedure can be helpful to improve these cosmetic flaws. In addition, it works well for patients who have rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing isn't recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne. Additionally, it's important to be aware that there is downtime associated with these laser therapy. Some patients, depending on the condition of their skin, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks to recover.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Depending on how intensive your laser skin resurfacing treatment is, Dr. Sookdeo may advise you to prepare for it by using a retinoid product on your skin for 2 – 3 weeks leading up to your appointment. The retinoid helps prepare the skin for better results. If your skin needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic may be used to numb treated areas of the face. For the whole complexion or more intense laser treatments, some kind of sedation may be used to help keep you comfortable. Throughout the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the laser passes over your skin, directly targeting the needed sections for resurfacing. You will feel heat from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth.

I have seen Dr Sookdeo for over a year now and couldn’t be happier with her care and thoroughness. She takes the time to answer and explain each and every inquiry I could have. She’s a miracle in a world that has lost its sense of customer/patient service/care.

What to Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing

For milder resurfacing sessions, an ointment will be gently applied to the treated skin before you go home for your recovery. The treated skin will appear pink, and there will be some swelling and irritation. These symptoms subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. For those who are getting a more intense laser treatment, your recovery time will take longer. The treatment areas will most likely be covered by dressings, and the swelling, burning, and irritation side effects may be stronger. Medication can be prescribed to minimize these side effects. The recovery period associated with a deeper laser skin resurfacing session can last 2 – 3 weeks. Every patient should reduce their sun exposure after their laser skin resurfacing session and apply sun protection regularly. For all laser treatments, the treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel off. It is important to avoid interfering with the recovery process to prevent scarring and to shield the treated area from environmental exposure. Once the peeling is completed, your skin should feel smoother while also appearing rejuvenated, clearer, and younger.
