How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Laser skin resurfacing is best described as a minimally-invasive treatment that uses concentrated beams of light to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. This treatment can be performed on patients of all skin types and can address various cosmetic concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage.

At the Skin and Vein Institute, we offer two varieties of non-ablative skin resurfacing. The difference between the two is the amount of downtime. The Clear and Brilliant is better than any facial you’ve ever had as it cleans your pores, builds collagen and gives your skin that natural healthy glow. The Fraxel is the choice when you really want to turn back the clock and do some deep cleaning and collagen building. The Fraxel will wipe away the years of sun bathing and not wearing sunscreen. Both of these laser skin resurfacing treatments provide patients with excellent results.

What Can I Expect During Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?

Before your laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the laser device will be passed over your skin. Depending on the laser procedure you receive, you may feel a warm or prickling sensation as the laser energy penetrates your skin.

Most laser skin resurfacing treatments take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. After your treatment is finished, your skin is cleansed, and the calming cream will be applied. You might experience minor redness and swelling in the treatment area, but this should resolve within a few hours to days. Patients who undergo more aggressive laser therapies to get more dramatic results will have about a week of looking dirty and flaky.  

What are the Benefits of Having Laser Skin Resurfacing Done?

There are many advantages of laser skin resurfacing, including the following:

  • Minimally-invasive treatment with appropriate downtime depending on the strength
  • Can be performed on all skin types
  • Can address a variety of cosmetic concerns with a single treatment
  • Safe and effective treatment with long-lasting results
