Laser resurfacing is a treatment used to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars.
Does this take place in a hospital?
Laser Resurfacing is considered an outpatient procedure. You will most likely return to the comfort of your own home the same day. Depending on your health and your doctor’s preference, you may have this procedure performed at an outpatient surgery center, your physician’s office, or in a hospital.
What kind of risks are involved?
Laser Resurfacing is a safe procedure that is performed on thousands of men and women each year with no major complications. As with any laser procedure, there are some specific risks. Your Physician can give you more details on these risks in a personal consultation.
What kind of follow-up care will I need?
You will return to your physician’s office almost immediately and then periodically to monitor your progress over a few months. The post-operative time is crucial for the long-term effectiveness of your procedure. It is very important to attend these visits to be certain you are caring for your delicate facial skin properly.
How long will my results last?
While laser treatments are considered to be long lasting, they are not permanent. Natural expressions that use specific facial muscles may cause some wrinkles called “expression lines” to reappear. You can help maintain your new look by carefully following the instructions that the physician and staff will indicate on skin care, and avoid sun exposure.
