REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
LASER SKIN RESURFACING PROCEDURE
With ablative laser resurfacing, a wand-like laser is used on the skin. The doctor will pull the skin taut and direct the laser at specific portions of the skin. It will briefly emit a beam of high-intensity light, which will induce controlled damage to the outer layers of the skin and expose the deeper layer underneath.
As the treated area heals, new skin that is smoother and tighter will slowly start to form.
This procedure lasts around 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the size of the surface area to be treated.
Non-ablative laser is a non-invasive method of laser skin resurfacing that targets the underlying layer of skin, also known as the dermis. It causes little to no pain as it does not remove or damage the skin, but instead delivers heat to the dermis to remove old pigmented cells, promote collagen remodeling, and stimulate the growth of new skin. The entire procedure lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Once the skin has been treated using either one of these methods, your face will be covered with a topical treatment to aid in healing. In most cases, specialized dressings or bandages may be applied as well.
Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, itching, and some mild stinging.
To facilitate a faster and more comfortable recovery process, Dr. Sedgh will provide specific aftercare instructions that must be strictly followed to ensure proper healing. He may also prescribe painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infection.
As with any cosmetic procedure, multiple post-treatment consultations are required so that your surgeon can monitor your progress, assess your results, and recommend the necessary instructions or follow-up treatments to ensure that you achieve your desired end result.
