Laser Skin Resurfacing Candidates
By Dr. William Cohen on May 29, 2012
When it comes to looking your best and feeling your best, it's important that you consider your many different options for anti-aging and facial rejuvenation. By undergoing a surgical or non-surgical aesthetic treatment, you will be able to undo years of sun damage, neglect, and the effects of aging.
One of the more popular age-defying treatments at our Orange County plastic surgery center is laser skin resurfacing. This non-invasive skin care treatment has been helping many people look their best. We'd like to take a moment right now to look at laser skin resurfacing and who it may be most beneficial for.
About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a state-of-the-art method of addressing damaged skin, helping you look years younger in the process. Your skin will be smoother, more supple, and more attractive in just a single treatment session. It's just one of many non-surgical treatments that we offer at our facial plastic surgery center in Placentia.
What Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Accomplish
Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for treating the following:
- Fine lines around the eyes and mouth
- Sun damage
- Poor skin tone
- Dry skin
- Issues with pigmentation
- Minor scars from acne and other blemishes
After the treatment, your skin will be smoother and appear more refreshed. These laser skin care procedures are free from surgical recovery times and scarring, and lack any major side effects or complications. The best candidates will have any of the above skin issues. Major scarring or skin damage will require a different form of treatment that this laser peel procedure.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing is Performed
During laser skin resurfacing treatment, patients are placed under a local anesthetic with a mild sedative. Their eyes will be covered to protect the vision from the laser light. The laser will then penetrate the surface layer of the skin and will cause new skin to form in the days after the treatment. The average Orange County laser skin treatment procedure will last roughly an hour or two. It's an outpatient procedure, so patients will be able to return home after it is completed.
While there is no downtime after surgery, your skin will be tender for a week or two after the laser skin resurfacing. This is natural since new skin forms during this period. We will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your skin as you recover to ensure the best possible results.
Other Options to Consider for Facial Rejuvenation
In addition to laser skin resurfacing, there are many other non-surgical treatments that can address sun damage, fine lines, and other minor imperfections on the surface of your skin. There are numerous facial cosmetic surgery options to consider as well if you are dealing with major lines and wrinkles or sagging skin. We will be able to go over all of these matters with you in more detail when you stop by for a consultation.
