Many people are self-conscious about the appearance of their skin and want a safe, effective treatment with no anesthesia and minimal downtime. Fortunately, medical technology has come a long way. Whether you have wrinkly skin or acne scars, we have a solution for you. Read on to learn the answers to frequently asked questions about laser skin resurfacing and how it can benefit you.
Laser skin resurfacing is a safe, effective treatment which uses laser energy to target various skin types and the finest of lines. Let’s discuss some of the most commonly asked questions about this treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You may wonder if you are a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing.
Here are some general criteria:
- Not recently tanned
- Not pregnant
- No history of light-triggered seizures
- No recurrent cold sores or active skin infection
- No implanted medical devices
- No history of strong sensitivity or allergy to light (photosensitivity)
This treatment is not just for individuals with age lines on their face. It is effective on acne scars, surgical scars and other concerns like enlarged pores and lesions. It is safe for patients who have had limited success with other treatments.
How are the Treatments Performed?
Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. Each treatment covers the treatment area with a series of powerful laser pulses. This causes pores to shrink, skin to improve in texture, wrinkles to reduce and elasticity to improve.
How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
The cost of the laser skin resurfacing treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated and which laser system is used, among other factors. Keep in mind that multiple treatment sessions may be required for optimal results.
When Will I See Results?
The results tend to appear in the weeks following the treatment. Save yourself several thousand dollars and weeks of downtime by opting for this non-invasive treatment rather than a facelift.
