Change is inevitable. As we change so does our body, particularly our skin. Our skin shows the depth of our lives. It is aged by the sun after days of enjoying the outdoors or working outside. Your skin also ages with you. When you look in the mirror that’s probably not what you see, you may see sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or enlarged pores. Those are natural side effects of aging, but that doesn’t mean you have to be happy about it. Regain your self-esteem and stop yourself from aging prematurely by seeking the care of an expert plastic surgeon in Manhattan, such as Dr. B. Aviva Preminger. Preminger Plastic Surgery of wants to offer you the latest and greatest in skin rejuvenation with a laser skin resurfacing procedure.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Plan to show up at your appointment wearing a button-up shirt and comfortable loungewear. You will start the procedure with the application of a topical anesthetic that will be applied to prevent any discomfort, though you may experience a feeling of slight warmth or tingling as the laser goes to work. Then a fractionated laser creates multiple pulses of laser energy that are transmitted into your skin. This creates microscopic holes that stimulate collagen production. It may leave your face feeling like you have a slight sunburn, but this is just your skin developing new cells to replace the damaged ones. Within a few days, your face will show signs of better health: even skin, smooth texture, and overall younger appearance. However, full results may not be evident until about a month following your procedure, and continued improvements can be seen for up to a year. This simple treatment uses the newest laser technology and is non-invasive.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Once you’ve had a laser skin resurfacing treatment, it’s best to kick back and let your skin relax. Plan on taking about a week off from work. Avoiding sun exposure is important, as well as knowing that you may experience redness and swelling during healing. These post-treatment side effects usually occur for about a week following the procedure. After the first few days, you can apply makeup with a green tint to conceal redness, but your skin may remain pink for up to a month.
While the results of laser skin resurfacing may last for years, repeat exposure to the sun and natural aging may require you to receive a repeat treatment eventually. We encourage you to wear sunscreen daily to prolong your results.
