Who Can Benefit From Laser Skin Resurfacing?

The versatility of laser skin resurfacing is one of the reasons it’s such a popular treatment. When performed by a skilled and experienced provider, laser treatments are safe and effective for patients of most skin types. The conditions treated using fractional CO2 lasers include:

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Sun damage
  • Mild to moderate acne scars

Even though specific results vary because every patient has their own unique circumstances, virtually all patients see a notable improvement in the appearance of their skin.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Dr. Boggess uses a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser for skin resurfacing patients. This laser penetrates the skin with pulses of laser beams that create pinpoint injuries, rather than damaging the entire surface of the skin. Controlled injuries stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells that replace damaged cells. This turnover of cells produces collagen, an essential element of smooth, youthful-looking skin.

What Happens During Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can be performed using local anesthesia with light sedation and typically takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

What Can I Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

You can expect to see some light crusting of the skin for 2 to 3 days, followed by some mild to moderate redness of the skin, similar to a sunburn. This usually lasts 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the individual and the laser settings used. Most people can return to normal activities in 3 to 5 days and makeup can be used to camouflage any residual redness after the first week.

How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The cost of laser skin resurfacing treatments varies depending on the extent of the procedures and size of the treatment areas. Our goal at Youthful Reflections is to provide access to cosmetic procedures to as many people as we can, which is why we offer a range of financing options for qualified patients.
