Laser Skin Resurfacing rectifies wrinkles, brown spots, fine lines, and more
The effects of aging and exposure to the sun can cause lines, wrinkles, or brown spots to appear on our face. Laser skin resurfacing is an available procedure that can rectify these conditions and make your skin look younger and healthier.
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel, is a method of removing damaged skin with a laser light beam. The beam can remove facial imperfections and treat fine lines, acne scars, brown spots, or sun damaged skin.
The light beam being used during the treatment is less than 10% of the diameter of a hair follicle and treats a fraction of the skin at a time. This penetrates deep dermal layers to stimulate production of newer, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Laser skin resurfacing in Beverly Hills can be performed in conjunction with additional procedures as well. These include Botox and dermal fillers. Treatments using the V Beam pulsed dye laser can also be performed during the same session.
A facial treatment with any laser may take 45 minutes to complete. Topical numbing cream will be applied one hour before the treatment. Patients can expect to spend up to two hours at the office.
Treatment completed with ablative laser resurfacing will take one week to heal. Fraxel laser will require 2 days of healing time. The procedure does not produce much discomfort and most patients can tolerate the effects after applying topical anesthetic cream or injectable ibuprofen medication.
