Laser Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a technique that improves the overall appearance of your skin, treating wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and hyperpigmentation disorders.

There are several ways Dr. Hera can resurface and rejuvenate your skin, including:

  • Chemical peels
  • Laser treatments
  • Dermal fillers

Dr. Hera can determine which treatment is right for you based on the condition of your skin and your desired outcome for treatment.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels use an acid agent to remove outer layers of your skin. This treatment breaks up pigment responsible for skin discolorations, like sun and age spots, and encourages the growth of new collagen and elastin.

As new collagen forms in your skin as part of your body’s natural healing process, your skin looks younger, smoother, and tighter.

How do lasers treatments work?

Dr. Hera may recommend ICON laser treatments if you have discolored areas of your skin, such as sun spots, age spots, and freckles. The laser breaks up the melanin in your skin that causes the darkened areas without damaging surrounding tissue.

Laser treatments also stimulate the growth of collagen that gives your skin a fresher, brighter look without surgery or other invasive treatments.

When will I see results?

It can take several days for your skin to heal after chemical peel treatments. You may experience skin redness, itchiness, swelling and flaking that can take several days to resolve before you can see results.

Laser treatments can offer immediate results after your first treatment, with a considerable reduction in the visibility of hyperpigmented areas.

Dr. Hera can let you know what to expect before your procedure and how long you can expect your results to last.

Am I a good candidate for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments?

Dr. Hera can determine if you’re a good candidate for one or more available skin resurfacing treatments after reviewing your medical history and discussing your cosmetic goals.

You may be a good candidate for treatment if you:

  • Don’t smoke
  • Are healthy overall
  • Have realistic expectations

It’s also important that you can ensure proper care of your skin after resurfacing procedures to maintain results and prevent exposure to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Wearing a high-quality sunscreen at all times is essential to keeping your skin healthy and preventing the return of sunspots and other signs of skin damage.
