What to expect with skin resurfacing

Most laser treatments are relatively quick and associated with minimal downtime. There are considerations before and after treatment that are important to ensuring the best possible results:

  • Results may be visible after 1 treatment, but the best and longest-lasting results are achieved with multiple treatments over time
  • Topical numbing creams to reduce discomfort need to be applied 1 hour
    before treatment
  • Treatments typically take from 1 to 2 hours
  • You will be provided protective eyewear if treating your face
  • You may need to apply an ointment or intense moisturizer during the healing process
  • Some patients report a burning sensation, which can be treated with cool compresses or other home remedies (instructions will be provided)
  • Sun exposure should be avoided before and after treatment; sunscreen (SPF 30+) should ALWAYS be used
