LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Erbium: YAG laser, the gold standard in dermatology.
This treatment provides a safe and gentle removal of a variety of benign lesions of the epidermis and dermis.
It provides effective treatment for wrinkles and scars, such as those caused by acne, without any thermal damage to the skin.
Removes and diminishes sun spots, age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, moles, warts and more.
The Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure
To prepare for the laser skin resurfacing procedure, the skin is cleansed and an antibiotic ointment is applied to the face. The laser is set to target a specific layer of the skin, depending on what kind of imperfection is being treated. Then the laser penetrates the surface of the skin until it meets the pre-determined depth. Local anesthetic – either with or without sedation – is typically used in a laser skin resurfacing procedure.
How Long Does Laser Skin Resurfacing take?
Primarily, laser skin resurfacing is considered to be a “lunch time” procedure. Tijuana patients can set up an appointment and be done with their treatment within the time frame of an hour or two depending on what needs to be done. Overall, all of our non-invasive skin treatments take much less time than actual surgery.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery
Laser skin resurfacing Tijuana patients should get plenty of rest and avoid unnecessary movement while they recover from the procedure. The skin will be covered in antibiotic cream and bandages to speed up the healing process, minimize swelling and prevent infection. The skin will likely look red and may ooze. Any discomfort following the procedure can be treated with oral pain medication. It’s important to follow all of the doctor’s post-treatment instructions to minimize any risks.
