Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure that takes approximately 30 minutes to two hours. The first step is cleaning of the skin and numbing of the treatment area. To ensure your comfort, oral or intravenous sedation can be administered before treatment.
With the Ultrapulse laser we can provide different levels of treatment, including Active FX and the more extensive Deep FX.
For a complete rejuvenation, there’s a Total FX option as well. We use a handheld device to deliver pulses of laser energy to the facial skin. As the laser passes over the treatment area, it penetrates through the outer layers of skin. Damaged skin cells are destroyed and healthy cell growth is stimulated.
After laser treatment, we apply a sterile surgical dressing to your skin, which should remain for at least 24 hours. An ointment is also prescribed to aid in the healing process. Depending on the level of your laser treatment, you might need a friend or family member to drive you home from our office.
Most patients can get back to work after 4-7 days. Your skin will look red for the first few days and then appear slightly pink for several weeks, and sometimes longer (especially for fair-skinned patients). The final results will be evident in 3-5 months. Possible side effects of laser resurfacing include swelling, extended redness, skin irritation, abnormal healing and scarring. During your consultation, we will discuss safety information and risks in great detail.
