Deep resurfacing laser can help against the elements that can impact our skin

Deep resurfacing laser can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions for Huntersville, NC residents. But, for many, the thought of using lasers to correct skin conditions can be a little scary. Learn more about how this works and what it can treat, below.

Q. What are deep resurfacing laser treatments?

A. These are also known as laser skin resurfacing. This procedure is non-invasive, meaning it can be done in-office and does not require the use of anesthesia. 

Q. How does this work?

A. This treatment involves gently removing the top layers of the skin, where most of the damage is located for patients. At the same time, it removes these layers, a deep resurfacing laser also stimulates new growth by boosting collagen production. This results in smoother skin and a healthier complexion for patients. 

Q. What can be used to treat?

A. A Carolina Age Management Institute (CAMI), Dr. Giordano and the team may use a deep resurfacing laser to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage including sunspots 
  • Skin imperfections such as scars 

Q. What can I expect after? 

One of the many benefits is that they have minimal side effects and downtime. Immediately after treatment, patients can expect to have skin that looks mildly or moderately sunburnt, this will go away within the first few days. Some patients also have minor swelling that will also fade within a few days. 

As your skin goes through the healing process, it may start to flake or peel. Your provider will likely recommend some moisturizer to use to help keep this at bay. 

Finally, it is critical to protect your skin from the sun after your treatment. This includes wearing sunscreen and a hat, seeking shade when outside, or even avoiding exposure to sunlight as much as possible.

Q. How much does it cost?

A. That depends. The cost will vary based on the size of the area, or areas, being treated, and what area is being treated. Ask about cost at your consultation.
