Before and After

What to Expect Before and After Laser Skin Treatment

Aging, acne, or too much time in the sun can leave your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines. Laser skin treatment resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier. Laser skin treatment removes skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done by itself or along with other cosmetic treatment on the face.

Treating just parts of the face takes about 30 to 45 minutes. A full-face treatment takes up to two hours. Following the laser procedure, our specialist will bandage the treated areas. After 24 hours, you will need to clean the treated areas four to five times a day and then apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabs from forming.

Swelling after laser skin treatment/resurfacing is normal. Sleeping on an extra pillow at night can also ease swelling.

Benefit and Risks Involved in Laser Skin Treatment

Laser skin treatment or resurfacing may not produce perfect skin but it can improve the appearance of your skin. Potential risks of the procedure include:

  • Burns or other injuries from the laser’s heat
  • Scarring
  • Changes in the skin’s pigmentation, including areas of darker or lighter skin
  • Reactivating herpes cold sores
  • Bacterial infection

Laser skin treatment or resurfacing is considered a cosmetic procedure. Most medical insurance will not cover it. There may be an exception if you get the procedure to modify scars or remove precancerous growths on your skin.

Talk with your insurance company before the procedure about what the costs will be and what insurance will pay for.
