None of us want to show the signs of aging on our faces. But an intense, invasive procedure to look more youthful isn’t ideal, either. Luckily, Beginnings Aesthetic and Wellness offers laser skin resurfacing in Red Bank, NJ. Dr. Thomas Theocharides explains what laser skin resurfacing is and how it can reverse years of aging on your skin.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At Beginnings, we use Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, considered the gold standard of lasers when it comes to this procedure. Pulsed laser energy is administered to the skin with a simple handheld device Dr. Theocharides will use. It’s able to target your specific problem areas while leaving the rest of your skin untouched. Microscopic channels in the skin are made to stimulate your body’s healing response.
What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Laser skin resurfacing can help almost any blemish or issue you have with the skin on your face. It can take on blemishes like age spots and sun spots, as well as reduce the appearance of acne scars and other scarring on your face. It can even assist with the appearance of dark circles under your eyes! (take out)
It reduces the signs of aging by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production. This smooths away the wrinkles and fine lines that develop as we age. It also tightens loose and sagging skin, particularly around your eyes and on your neck.
The Laser Skin Resurfacing Process
CO2 laser treatment is done in-office the procedure can take 20 mins to an hour all depending on depth. No anesthesia is required, but numbing cream is usually applied to the face to make you more comfortable and gas is available. You’re able to leave almost right after the procedure is over! You shouldn’t experience much pain, may experience some swelling. Typically, patients feel something similar to a sunburn for a few days after treatment.
There is at least 1 week of no social downtime required after the procedure, you will experience dead skin peeling for anywhere from 4-8 days applying Aquaphor throughout the day to avoid skin drying This is a normal part of the exfoliation process. You may want to avoid public outings if you’re concerned about how the skin peeling looks.
Patients normally only need one treatment to experience the results they’re looking for, turning your skin back up to 10 years! Results can last for a few years! While you’ll see a change right after the procedure is done, the full results will be apparent in a few months.
The results of this treatment can last for a long time, depending on your skincare routine. If you’re taking care of your skin the way you should, like with our DCL skincare products, you can experience radiant, beautiful skin for years to come.
