There are many factors to consider when choosing which laser peel is right for you. Laser skin resurfacing is geared toward patients who are unhappy with their overall complexion. If you have sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation issues, this treatment can help correct these imperfections. In addition, it works well if you have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. This treatment is not recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne. In addition, it is important to understand that there is downtime associated with these laser therapies. Some patients, depending on the condition of their skin, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks to recover.
If your skin needs mild correction, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb certain areas where the laser will target. For the full face or more intense laser treatments, some type of sedation may be necessary. During the laser skin resurfacing, you will relax in our treatment chair while the Vbeam Perfecta or Lumenis M22 laser glides over the skin, precisely targeting the designated areas for improvement. You will feel the heat from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to destroy damaged skin cells while also stimulating new collagen growth.
What to Expect
For lighter peels, a healing ointment will be applied to the skin and you can return home to recover. The skin will appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days and the peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. If you are undergoing a more intense laser treatment, your downtime will be prolonged. The treated areas will most likely be covered by dressings and the swelling, burning, and irritation sensation will be intensified. Medication can be prescribed to help reduce these side effects. The downtime associated with a deeper peel can last 2 – 3 weeks. All patients should limit their sun exposure after their laser treatment and apply sun protection regularly. Regardless of the intensity of the peel, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is important to avoid interfering with the healing process. Once the skin has healed, you will feel a softer layer that looks clearer, rejuvenated, and younger.
