Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Enhances the appearance and texture of the skin.
Applying thick creams and bandages to your face after treatment can worsen acne or cause you to temporarily develop tiny white bumps (milia) on treated skin. Increased or decreased skin coloring (hyper- or hypopigmentation). Non-ablative laser resurfacing can cause a flare-up of the herpes virus.
Avoid unprotected sun exposure. After ablative laser resurfacing, the treated skin will be raw, swollen and itchy. When recovering from ablative laser resurfacing, regularly clean the treated area with water, saline or acetic acid and apply thick, protective ointments. Strenuous activities can usually be resumed after one or two weeks. Cosmetics can be used to conceal any redness.
Effects can last for years. Improvements after non-ablative laser resurfacing tend to be gradual and progressive, rather than immediate and dramatic.
