Laser Skin Resurfacing IN BOZEMAN, MT
What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with a laser at Instinct Holistic Medical Spa is a noninvasive aesthetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate dead and damaged skin cells layer by layer. Depending on the condition of the patient’s skin, the laser can be customized for the best results. There is little recovery time needed for most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Any questions or concerns may be discussed with your Bozeman, MT specialist during your assessment and consultation.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
You may be asked to use a topical retinoid a few weeks before your laser procedure to help prepare the skin for maximum results. For laser skin resurfacing, Instinct Holistic Medical Spa features the Erbium Pixel fractional laser. Fractional laser treatments are a combination of ablative and non-ablative lasers that create tiny holes in the deep layers of the skin. The laser energy works to remove damaged skin cells while also stimulating natural collagen production to create tighter, firmer, and healthier skin, and treat fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation issues.
Following milder resurfacing treatments, a healing ointment will be applied to the treated skin, and you can go home for your recovery. The skin may appear red, and there may be some irritation and swelling, which will subside in a few days. If you undergo a more intense resurfacing treatment, your downtime will take longer. The treated areas most likely will be protected with dressings, and the swelling, irritation, and burning sensation may be intensified. Medication can be prescribed to help reduce these side effects. The recovery period associated with more intense laser skin resurfacing treatment may last several weeks. All patients should limit their sun exposure following treatment and apply sun protection throughout the day. Regardless of intensity, the treated skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It’s important to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to prevent scarring and to protect the treated area from UV exposure. Once the peeling process is completed, your skin will feel smoother while also appearing clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.
