Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

Elevate Medical Spa and Salon

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing reduces wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots. It can also effectively eliminate scars due to injuries, surgery, or acne.

Marti uses laser technology that contains concentrated beams of light. The laser precisely removes damaged skin one layer at a time. It also heats the underlying skin, triggering your body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen. You may need 1-2 treatments or sometimes 5-6 treatments, depending on the condition of your skin and the type of laser treatment you receive.

As your skin heals, new skin cells form to create a smoother, firmer facial appearance.

Elevate Medical Spa and Salon offers several resurfacing technologies including:

  • Solta Dual Fraxel®
  • Solta Clear and Brilliant

What happens during a laser skin resurfacing procedure?

Marti and her team offer laser skin resurfacing treatments in a comfortable office environment. To ensure your comfort, they will apply topical anesthetics to numb the treatment area for @ 20 minutes. The Laser procedure will then take 20-30 minutes. Depending on the type of Laser procedure you received, will determine your post procedure restrictions. Marti or her staff will review your post procedure restrictions and plan.

What can I expect after a laser resurfacing treatment?

Immediately following your treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to a sunburn. Your face may also appear red and slightly swollen. These symptoms disappear with a few hours to a few days. If you experience pain, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers and apply cold compresses for the first one to two days after treatment.

As your skin heals, you may experience minor itchy, dry, flaky skin. Marti recommends high-quality moisturizers to treat dry skin and promote proper healing.

It’s also essential that you wear a quality sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily and avoid direct sun exposure for at least three months after your resurfacing procedure.
