BEAUTY BENEFITS OF THE PROCEDURE
There are numerous ways that resurfacing helps to restore the natural beauty of your skin. With the precision of skilled plastic surgeons and the newest technology, laser surgery can treat even the most delicate places on your face. It can remove damaged skin or unwanted growths. Overall, it aids with many skin issues:
- The length of time acne has been present on your skin
- The intensity of current breakouts
- The scale of existing scar tissue
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Before you commit to having laser treatment, you should make sure the doctor is experienced in laser skin resurfacing. Ask any questions you may have about the procedure. Disclose to your provider your medical history and whether you get cold sores or fever blisters.
Once you have decided to have the treatment done, avoid any vitamins or medications that would promote clotting, such as vitamin E, ibuprofen, or aspirin. If you are a smoker, stop smoking for two weeks prior to and following the surgery.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Following laser treatment, you may experience a stinging sensation or itchiness. Your skin will feel dry and you should moisturize according to your doctor’s instructions.
Remember that your new skin will be very sensitive and extremely vulnerable to the sun. Avoid being out in direct sun, and when you do have exposure use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. Use a sunscreen that is formulated specifically for facial use, containing a zinc oxide or other physical blockers.
Don’t wear makeup until your doctor says it is okay. Also, let your plastic surgeon know if you experience any unusual pain or signs of infection. After a few weeks, your face will heal completely, and you should be able to return to your normal routines.
