Laser Skin Resurfacing
As a highly accomplished Denver facial cosmetic surgery specialist, Dr. Nick Slenkovich is proud to offer patients an extensive range of surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. One of the more popular non-surgical facial beautification procedures he performs is laser skin resurfacing, or a laser peel. Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that provides you with smoother, more youthful appearing skin and a more uniform skin color and surface texture.
Laser peels may be an excellent solution for you if you have:
- fine wrinkles in your skin
- course wrinkles in your skin
- an uneven skin surface as a result of acne scars
- small skin growths
- age spots or discolored areas
What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
During a laser facial procedure, a pulsed laser light penetrates the skin, removing small columns of tissue and depositing heat into the deeper layers of the skin. In this way, the damaged, superficial layers of skin are able to slough off, while the deeper layers of cells are stimulated to produce fresh, healthy cells and more collagen and elastin fibers, which provides your skin with youthful suppleness, tightness, and tone.
Colorado Plastic Surgery Center offers two unique options for laser skin resurfacing treatments:
The procedures are usually done on an outpatient basis under local sedation or topical numbing. Laser skin resurfacing can be done by itself or in combination with other procedures. Special skincare products are also utilized both prior to and after the procedure to maximize results and recovery.
What is Recovery Like?
Healing from laser skin resurfacing will be complete within 7 to 14 days. Redness or pinkness of the skin will usually last one month, but may last up to six months depending upon the strength of the treatment and an individual’s sensitivity. Makeup can be worn starting on day five to camouflage any residual redness until healing is complete.
