What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to improve the appearance of your skin. It works by removing the outer layer of damaged skin cells, revealing the smoother, more youthful-looking skin underneath. The procedure can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

How does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

During the procedure, the laser is passed over the skin, delivering controlled pulses of light energy. This energy is absorbed by the water in the skin cells, causing them to heat up and vaporize. As the outer layer of skin cells is removed, the underlying layers of skin are stimulated to produce new collagen, which helps to tighten and firm the skin.

Different Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing

There are two main types of laser skin resurfacing: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative laser resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin entirely, while non-ablative laser resurfacing leaves the outer layer of skin intact.

Ablative laser resurfacing is more aggressive and can produce more dramatic results, but it also requires more downtime and has a higher risk of side effects. Non-ablative laser resurfacing is less aggressive and requires less downtime, but it may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results.

Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is generally safe and effective for people of all skin types and ages. However, it may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions, such as autoimmune disorders or skin infections. Additionally, if you have a history of scarring or keloids, laser skin resurfacing may not be the best option for you.

The Procedure

Before the procedure, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. The laser will then be passed over the skin in a precise pattern, targeting the areas of concern. The procedure typically takes between 30 minutes and two hours, depending on the size and location of the treatment area.

Post-Treatment & Recovery

After the procedure, your skin will be red and swollen, and you may experience some discomfort or pain. You may also experience some peeling or crusting as the skin heals. It's important to avoid sun exposure and to keep the skin clean and moisturized during the recovery period.

The recovery time for laser skin resurfacing varies depending on the type of laser used and the size and location of the treatment area. Generally, it takes about two weeks for the skin to fully heal, but this can vary depending on the individual.

Possible Side Effects & Risks

Like any medical procedure, laser skin resurfacing carries some risks. Possible side effects include redness, swelling, itching, and scarring. In rare cases, infection or changes in skin pigmentation may occur. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced and qualified medspa like Babe Aesthetics.
