FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER TREATMENTS

How long does laser resurfacing last?

Laser resurfacing is a permanent solution to improving skin quality and texture. It works by removing the upper layers of the skin to make way for healthy new skin. It also causes increased collagen production in the skin to decrease wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance to the skin.

How many laser resurfacing treatments are required?

Generally only one treatment is required. However, patients with deep acne scars or wrinkles may opt to have a second treatment to improve results further.

How long before a big event should I have a laser treatments?

Schedule your treatment 3 weeks prior to any events or functions, this is the best timeframe to ensure the only evidence of your laser treatment is your fantastic looking skin.

What is the Laser Resurfacing procedure like?

Patients will be welcomed to the clinic and have a topical numbing gel applied to the treatment area. They will be provided with oral pain medication to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. The laser resurfacing procedure will be provided by Dr. Scott, a Cosmetic Physician with extensive experience in ablative laser. After the treatment a post-procedure balm and the patient will be picked up from a clinic by a friend or family member. The whole experience in clinic will be around 2 hours, but the procedure itself is only 30 minutes.

What are the possible side effects of Laser Resurfacing?

As with any medical procedure, there are possible risks to consider. All patients will have some bleeding and swelling immediately after the procedure in the area treated. The skin will be red and flaky for the next week as the skin heals and new collagen is laid down. There can be some discomfort and ‘tight’ feeling to the skin during this time. Very rarely and infection can occur that requires antibiotics. There is a risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in the area treated – this risk is higher in darker skin individuals.
