JACOB SEDGH, MD
ACNE SCAR LASER TREATMENT PROCEDURE
Before the procedure, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. A topical anesthetic will then be applied over the target areas to numb the skin. Acne laser treatments are virtually pain-free, but numbing the skin is typically used to prevent any discomfort that may be experienced during the process. Protecting the eyes is extremely important in any laser procedure. Therefore, you will also be provided with a pair of safety glasses to wear during the treatment.
Dr. Sedgh will then begin the treatment by targeting small sections of skin. This process will be repeated until the entire target area has been addressed. The procedure is relatively quick, depending on the extent or severity of the scarring. The doctor will finish the treatment by applying a cooling serum to the treated areas, as well as an ample amount of sunscreen to ensure protection from UV rays.
While your skin is still healing, it is extremely important to avoid sun exposure. Wear sunscreen every day, even when indoors. You must also make sure to treat your skin gently by staying away from harsh skin products. Avoid scrubbing the treated area, and most importantly, refrain from touching your face too much.
Dr. Sedgh makes it a point to provide ample care and support even after treatment, and although the recovery for laser procedures is quite minimal, it is the doctor’s custom to closely monitor his patient’s post-treatment process. He will typically schedule follow-up appointments to allow him to evaluate your skin’s response to the treatment.
