How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing And Scar Revision Work?
Before you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense laser skin resurfacing and scar revision treatment, you may be asked to use a retinoid cream for a few weeks before your laser resurfacing treatment. This helps prep the skin for better results. Medication will be suggested prior to the procedure to help lessen any sensation so you can relax throughout your session. If your complexion only needs mild correction, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb treated areas where the laser will target. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser passes over the skin, directly targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. You may feel a mild heat from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in onboard cooling system. The laser energy works to remove damaged skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production to achieve a renewed, revitalized appearance and significantly reduced imperfections like scars.
