Before we get started with any treatment, we will have a no-obligation consultation to pinpoint any issues and talk about your goals. This conversation will involve relevant medical and family history to ensure the treatment you are seeking is right for you.
We will then discuss your expected results and any associated risks with the procedure before moving forward.
We’ll give you some pre-treatment instructions to follow before your procedure. Be sure to read them closely, as they ensure the best results.
After we’ve prepared your skin with cleanser and topical anesthetic, we will:
- Condition the skin by passing over it twice with the Nd:YAG laser.
- Ablate the old, worn-out skin away with the fractional Er:YAG laser.
- Remove imperfections with the full Er:YAG beam.
Total treatment time ranges between 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment.
After skin resurfacing, your skin may feel raw and sore. We’ll apply an ointment and dressing to soothe your skin and promote healing.
Your provider will give you detailed aftercare instructions. It is crucial that you follow these to ensure the health of your skin and efficacy of the treatment.
