Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing can improve the tone and texture of your skin without the need for surgery. Laser technologies have revolutionized the medical field, including plastic surgery. Laser skin treatments can precisely target specific skin conditions, such as fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage, and other common concerns. Astra Plastic Surgery offers advanced laser skin resurfacing and CO2 fractional laser treatments to patients. We strive to deliver the best laser skin resurfacing Atlanta has to offer.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser-based technology allows our skin care team to address various signs of aging, as well as common skin problems, with precise accuracy. Most superficial skin conditions can be corrected by removing layers of damaged skin with laser skin resurfacing.

Lasers work by heating specific layers of the skin where imperfections are present, without damaging the other layers of skin. The heat from the laser destroys damaged skin and stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in the skin, keeping it smooth and young. The production of collagen is part of the healing process; this can promote new skin development, as fresh skin is regenerated that is free of cosmetic flaws and imperfections.

CO2 lasers use a high energy beam to create a controlled burn of the deeper layers of skin. This controlled burn stimulates the production of collagen, minimizes dark spots from sun damage and aging, and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because the laser acts on the deeper layers of skin, results are often more effective than traditional resurfacing therapies such as peels or dermabrasion. The SmartXide DOT laser uses a fractional amount of energy compared to traditional CO2 laser therapy, resulting in less pain and downtime, but still providing many of the same benefits.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If you struggle with skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, enlarged pores, and more, laser skin resurfacing in Atlanta may be right for you. One of the most important aspects of laser skin resurfacing is having realistic expectations for your procedure. Not all signs of aging can be treated. Patients should be in good general health before choosing to undergo laser skin resurfacing in Atlanta.

An evaluation by our laser skin resurfacing professionals can help you make an informed decision about undergoing laser skin treatment. If we determine that laser skin resurfacing cannot achieve your cosmetic goals, we may recommend facial surgery or dermal fillers and injectables.

What Can I Expect During Laser Skin Resurfacing In Atlanta?

We perform laser skin resurfacing in-office, so you go home the same day. It is recommended that patients have someone drive them to and from their appointment. First, a local anesthetic is injected into the treatment area to minimize discomfort. After numbing the area, the laser is applied to the skin in a series of tiny dots in a grid-like pattern, leaving surrounding skin intact. This allows for faster healing, less pain, and less downtime than traditional CO2 laser techniques. The grid can be adjusted based on your specific skin needs.

A special device is used to apply laser energy to the treatment area in small bursts. If the entire face is being treated, the appointment should take approximately two hours. Treating smaller areas of the face usually takes forty-five minutes to an hour.

What Can I Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

After the treatment, your skin will be red and slightly swollen. A special ointment will be provided to keep your skin clean. You should avoid exposure to the sun until your skin is fully healed. For the first three days, your skin with itch and tingle. This indicates that new skin is being produced. Overall healing time can take 2 to 4 weeks, with full results seen 2 to 3 months after laser skin resurfacing.

Following laser skin resurfacing, patients should ensure they keep the treated area(s) clean and use any prescribed cream or lotions to prevent scabbing and infection. Patients may experience slight discomfort throughout the healing process, but this can be managed by applying a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling and irritation.
