Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent fine line and wrinkle treatment that can also rejuvenate your whole face. Palm Beach Dermatology Group uses the fractional CO2 laser for skin resurfacing. This laser is a computer-based device that delivers microscopic beams of laser light into your skin at key intervals.
Essentially, the laser makes a dot pattern on your face, and you'll have normal skin bridges connecting those dots. This approach to wrinkles gives you the smoother skin and younger look you want in a natural way, with no surgery or injectables.
Laser skin resurfacing causes a controlled injury to deeper skin tissue, and this encourages fresh collagen production as your body works to repair the perceived damage. The new collagen means a significant improvement in the appearance of your facial lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, you can reduce pore size, diminish acne scars, smooth skin texture, and improve skin tone with laser skin resurfacing. It's a true facial rejuvenation treatment.
Your entire appointment takes around 90 minutes. When you arrive, your Palm Beach Dermatology Group care provider applies a topical anesthetic to your face. You'll relax for about 60 minutes while you get well-numbed. This helps avoid pain from the laser treatment. Your laser skin resurfacing treatment then takes only 20-30 minutes.
You'll feel like you have a sunburn for a few hours after treatment, and you may feel mildly itchy. You’ll apply a quality moisturizer daily for one week, and use dilute vinegar soaks on the first two days post-treatment.
Your skin starts to shed at around day 4-6 to reveal your smooth new skin. You'll also produce new collagen over the coming weeks and months, so your wrinkles gradually reduce over that time.
Just one treatment is enough for many patients, especially if your main concern is mild lines and wrinkles. If you have deeper wrinkles or facial folds, you may get the best results from a total of 2-3 treatments over a three or four-month period.
