Laser Resurfacing Q&A

What is laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a time-tested aesthetic technique to improve your appearance by stimulating skin regrowth. Your Apollo Physicians specialist uses advanced laser technology to remove the outer layer of skin, eliminating old skin and promoting healthy skin by stimulating collagen production.

How does laser resurfacing work?

Though laser resurfacing is similar to a chemical peel (placing strong chemicals on your face to remove layers of skin), laser treatment precisely removes a single layer at a time. It can be used to target individual flaws like scars.

New skin cells develop in the deep layers of your skin and slowly migrate toward the top, where they replace old skin at the surface. This natural process slows as you age, leading to changes in your complexion and appearance. Laser resurfacing solves this problem.

Your skin also produces less collagen as you get older. Since collagen is essential for healthy, resilient skin, a lower collagen level contributes to wrinkles and loose skin. As the laser’s energy eliminates the old skin, its heat reaches below the surface, stimulating new collagen growth.

How does my appearance improve with laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing dramatically brightens your complexion and eliminates many skin problems, from common concerns to signs of aging. Patients choose laser resurfacing to improve:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull complexion
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Brown spots (age spots or sun damage)

If you need to treat these skin problems, schedule a consultation at Apollo Physicians right away.

What should I expect during laser resurfacing?

Before your treatment, your provider cleans your skin and applies a topical anesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable. They place special glasses over your eyes to protect them from the light. Your provider controls a hand-held laser, using its energy to remove the upper layer of skin.

After laser resurfacing, the treated area typically looks and feels like you have a mild sunburn. You might also experience minor itching for a few days. Your provider tells you how to care for your skin and reminds you to stay out of the sunlight until the treated skin heals.
