Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and efficient treatment that helps reverse the adverse effects of aging, sun exposure, skin conditions, and negative lifestyle habits on the color, texture, and overall quality of the skin. This procedure can be performed using one of these two options: ablative laser and non-ablative laser.
The ablative laser removes outer skin layers using an intense wavelength of light to correct aged or damaged skin. Meanwhile, non-ablative laser uses heat to stimulate collagen growth and improve the appearance of skin issues. Both methods will result in smoother, tighter, even-toned skin with a naturally youthful glow.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
Laser skin resurfacing is a great solution for those who want to eliminate skin imperfections such as wrinkles, blemishes, scars, and more. But in addition to improving the aesthetic appearance of the skin, some can undergo this procedure to help address existing or persistent skin abnormalities such as birthmarks, lesions, or warts. This procedure can help treat the following:
- Leathery, sun-damaged skin
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Freckles and liver spots
- Acne and chickenpox scars
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven skintone
- Unappealing birthmarks or warts
- Enlarged pores
- Early signs of skin cancer
What Are The Benefits?
As the largest and most exposed organ of the body, your skin is highly prone to noticeable damage. Treatments such as laser skin resurfacing offer significant, long-lasting improvements on the appearance and texture of the skin, but it is essential to get a skilled plastic surgeon to perform them for best results.
Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double-board certified plastic surgeon who believes in creating natural-looking improvements through safe and effective methods. Under his meticulous care, your laser skin resurfacing treatment should include the following benefits:
- Smoother complexion
- Younger, healthier-looking skin
- Better skin pigmentation and even skintone
- Improved self-confidence
Before undergoing this procedure, Dr. Sedgh will meet with you for a consultation so he can understand your goals and provide the most optimal treatment plan to help you achieve the desired cosmetic outcome. His main goal with his patients is to provide highly personalized care, which is why he will also take the time to:
- Check your medical history and inquire about relevant lifestyle factors
- Examine and assess the quality and appearance of the skin
- Explain how the treatment will be performed
- Discuss the best execution plan for your specific skin issues
If needed, Dr. Sedgh can conduct video consultations with patients not local to Los Angeles. Should you push through with this treatment, the doctor’s office can help make the trip easier for you by assisting you with travel arrangements for hotel accommodations, car services, and more.
Laser skin resurfacing is a quick and simple outpatient procedure. The length of the recovery period varies from patient to patient, as there are many factors involved. It will usually depend on the depth of the treatment, the size of the treated area, the laser treatment used, the patient’s lifestyle, and how fast the patient’s skin heals.
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.
Comfort & Transparency From Start To Finish
When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
