How Does Skin
By using focused laser energy microbeams that extend deep into the skin, tiny holes are created that stimulate the body’s own natural collagen formation as part of the natural repair cycle. The result is a fast-forward healing process that stimulates skin regeneration and tightening, which keeps the plump, reduces wrinkles and improves skin texture. By leaving small spots of untreated skin in between, the healing process is fast and effective.
After applying topical numbing solution, the laser skin resurfacing technology is applied to the skin. The entire process last 20 to 30 minutes, after which you are free to go home. For optimal results, we may recommend more than one laser skin resurfacing treatment. These recommendations are made by Dr. Reza Tirgari on a case-by-case basis.
Downtime after laser skin resurfacing can be as little as three to five days, with your skin appearing mildly red and swollen after the procedure – similar to a sunburn. However, this is necessary in order for the skin to begin the process of repair, healing and firming.
Patients can opt for either a more aggressive treatment with a longer downtime for more dramatic results, or choose multiple less intensive treatments to achieve the same effect but with shorter downtime. We will explain your options to you during your consultation. In addition, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and monitor the healing process.
