Laser Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is one of the many cosmetic dermatology services offered at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center. The patient-centered dermatology practice uses the minimally invasive MicroLaserPeel to perform laser resurfacing.

With laser resurfacing, your dermatologist uses laser energy to remove a thin layer of your damaged skin to improve tone, texture, and appearance. 

The MicroLaserPeel and 1540 Fractionated Laser at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center is very popular with their younger patients who want to freshen their appearance and maintain their youthful look. 

Am I a candidate for laser resurfacing?

When you visit Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center for a cosmetic dermatology consultation, your provider conducts a thorough evaluation to determine the best treatment for you.

They may consider you a candidate for laser resurfacing if you’re searching for a minimally invasive treatment to improve the tone and texture of your skin. Laser resurfacing treats:

  • Mild lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rough skin

If you have more severe sun damage, your dermatologist may suggest combining laser resurfacing treatment with other cosmetic services, such as IPL treatments or chemical peels. 

What can I expect during laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is an in-office cosmetic treatment that takes 15-30 minutes. First, your dermatologist cleanses your skin with an antibacterial cleanser. Then, they position the laser over your skin and start treatment.

Most patients tolerate laser resurfacing w with only a topical anesthetic cream. 

What happens after laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing removes the outer layer of your skin and your skin may appear “frosty” following your session. The “frosty” skin peels away on its own over the next few days.

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center recommends you take it easy for 3-4 days after laser resurfacing so your skin has time to heal. You can schedule your peel on a Thursday or Friday and be back to your usual schedule on Monday.

You should notice improvements in the look and tone of your skin within 3-4 days after laser resurfacing. Most patients only need one session to get optimal results.
