Am I a candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for people who are unhappy with their overall complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, a laser skin resurfacing treatment may be needed to address these complexion blemishes. In addition, this treatment works well for patients who have scaly patches, rough skin texture, or other skin surface problems. Laser skin resurfacing is not recommended if you have very dark skin tones or active acne. Also, it's important to be aware that there is downtime needed after laser therapy. Some patients, based on the condition of their skin, may need as much as 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.

What Should I Expect after Laser Skin Resurfacing?

For lighter resurfacing procedures, a healing ointment will be applied to the skin and you can go home to recover. The treated skin will appear pink, and there may be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms subside within a couple of days, and the peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day period. If you are getting a deeper laser procedure, your recovery period will last longer. The treated sections may be protected with dressings, and the swelling, irritation, and burning side effects may be more intense. Medication can be prescribed to help reduce these side effects. The downtime for a deeper laser treatment can last several weeks. Every patient needs to reduce their UV exposure following their laser skin resurfacing session and use sun protection throughout the day. For all laser treatments, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It's vital to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to prevent scarring and to shield your skin from environmental exposure. Once the peeling process has been finished, your skin will feel smoother while looking clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does laser skin resurfacing with the Harmony XL PRO cost?
Laser skin resurfacing costs vary, depending on your specific treatment plan, including the condition of your skin and the number of treatments to reach your desired goals. Limitless Me Wellness often offers treatment specials and packages so ask about current specials during your consultation.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Mitchell or someone on her staff will discuss how you can speed skin healing following your resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is to not peel or pick your skin. Doing this can cause lasting damage, like scars. You should skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can suggest some creams to help soothe and heal treated areas.

How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the laser resurfacing options you and Dr. Mitchell select for your treatment, you might need to wait a few weeks or even months between appointments. Deep laser treatments will give you results that last a long time but will require a longer recovery period. You should talk to Dr. Mitchell about how frequently you are willing to come back for treatments so she can take this into account when suggesting a type of resurfacing during your initial consultation.
