Many issues may plague our skin, from uneven texture to hyperpigmentation, but these are not always incurable problems. Through a laser skin resurfacing treatment in Tucson, we can clear up many imperfections to dramatically improve the texture and color of your skin.
Laser treatment has a refreshing effect on the skin. It can help reduce wrinkles and superficial blemishes on the skin, while improving skin texture. The treatment removes the top layers of the aged skin, stimulating the body's healing response and promoting growth of new healthy skin. As a result, wrinkles improve, pigmentation issues are reduced, and collagen growth is stimulated.
Both laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels treat a range of superficial skin imperfections, such as:
Patients typically range from their late thirties to early forties when they begin having these procedures done. You should be a healthy nonsmoker if you are choosing laser treatments, as it will ensure proper healing and a better aesthetic result.
In your consultation with Dr. Lo, he may ask about your current skin care regimen, including your use of sun protection. Wearing an SPF daily can ward off sun damage, which can lead to some of these skin issues. Dr. Lo will also ask you about your skin concerns and what you wish to have corrected with the treatment.
After he has examined your skin, Dr. Lo will advise you on appropriate treatment steps and possibly suggest a skin care routine going forward that will help keep your skin glowing and beautiful. In some cases, it may be recommended that you incorporate specific products into your current skin care regimen, to help you prep your skin and get optimal results from your treatment.
Laser treatments are often performed with a local anesthetic and sedation, if needed.
During a laser skin resurfacing treatment, Dr. Lo will pass the laser hand piece over your skin in a uniform pattern. The laser's pulse will be alternated with brief moments of cooling. After the laser application, an ointment is applied to facilitate healing of the skin.
After your laser skin resurfacing treatment in Tucson, the doctor may ask you to continue applying ointment to your skin for a period of time to both protect it and aid in healing. You should avoid sun exposure and to apply an SPF when you eventually do spend time in the sun. You may experience some redness or changes in pigmentation, but these are temporary.
After your skin has healed from the treatment, you will see an improvement in the condition of your skin with fewer lines and wrinkles and an improved complexion.
