Laser resurfacing is a versatile laser treatment that can produce dramatic results in just a few treatment sessions. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we offer this treatment to men and women living in Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Fayetteville, NC.
What is Involved in Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing, or laser skin resurfacing, is a skin exfoliation and rejuvenation technique that uses laser energy to precisely target specific cosmetic concerns. With this treatment, the skin is exfoliated layer by layer. The benefit to using laser technology for this process is that they are incredibly accurate. We can target specific areas or concerns without affecting the surrounding areas of skin. Plus, laser energy stimulates collagen production in the skin, which will help to restore volume and provide other cosmetic benefits in the weeks and months following treatment. Laser resurfacing can be a great solution for many cosmetic concerns, including:
- Scars and acne scars
- Wrinkles and lines
- Age spots or sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- And more
How Much Does Laser Resurfacing Cost in Fayetteville, NC?
The average cost of laser resurfacing varies widely. Factors that affect the cost of your procedure include the areas involved, the number of treatments necessary, and other factors that are determined during the consultation. To help you have a budget in mind when you meet with one of our plastic surgeons, we invite you to learn about our financing options.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
The laser resurfacing process is fairly straightforward. During treatment, we will use our laser system to deliver laser energy to the outermost layers of skin, exfoliating aged or damaged skin cells. This can cause a warm sensation, but we often use a topical cooling solution to minimize any discomfort during treatment. Most treatments can be completed in under an hour, although the exact duration of treatment will depend on the treatment areas involved.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Laser Resurfacing?
The recovery from laser resurfacing will depend on the intensity of your treatment, as we customize each treatment based on skin type and your cosmetic goals. Most patients will experience redness and sensitivity in the skin that resembles a sunburn. While the skin heals, it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure and other irritants as it will be highly sensitive. Patients are typically able to return to their normal activities within a day of treatment, however.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Resurfacing?
After your laser resurfacing treatment, results will become visible as the skin heals. You will begin to notice additional results due to collagen production about one to two months later. However, for significant improvements in some cosmetic concerns, multiple laser resurfacing sessions will be necessary. During your consultation, we’ll let you know how many treatments you can expect.
