Show Your Skin Some Love with Laser Skin Resurfacing

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It has grown, stretched, and moved with you since the day you were born. How well have you taken care of your skin? Your skin takes care of you in the following ways:

  • Receives sensory information
  • Stores water, fat, and vitamin D
  • Regulates your body temperature
  • Protects your body from germs, pollution, and radiation

Laser Skin Resurfacing can improve your skin’s overall appearance by removing the outer layer of your skin so your body can build and repair to form new skin, promote collagen growth and reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. Allura Aesthetics in Boynton Beach, FL., now offers the innovative skin rejuvenating approach of Laser Skin Resurfacing.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, firmness, and overall luster it once had. Laser skin resurfacing is performed in our luxurious spa-like setting at Allura’s salon suites. As a rejuvenation skincare treatment, Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layer of your skin to remove skin blemishes, diminish the look of scars, and improve the appearance of your skin. The following types of lasers can be used during your treatment:

Ablative

  • Removes outer layer of skin
  • Heats underlying skin layers
  • Stimulates and promotes collagen production

Non-Ablative

  • Penetrates the dermis
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Improves your skin’s tone and texture

Erbium Laser

  • Removes top layer of skin
  • Smoothes deep lines and wrinkles
  • Less redness and recovery time compared to other lasers

CO2 Fractional Laser

  • Uses light pulses
  • Removes outer layer of skin
  • Promotes smoother, younger-looking skin

Laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

  • Tightens your skin
  • Uses high energy light
  • Removes discoloration from the skin

How do I know if Laser Skin Resurfacing is right for me?

It is best to consult with one of our expert aesthetic specialists to determine if you are a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. Laser Skin Resurfacing works best on fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and rough skin patches. Each laser works to remove damaged skin cells by removing the top layer of your skin.

Am I a good candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser Skin Resurfacing may not be ideal for your skin condition if you currently have acne or very dark skin. Again, your aesthetic specialist will assess your skin during your consultation to determine if this is the right skincare approach for you. It is extremely important to tell your aesthetic specialist if you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters around your mouth as Laser Skin Resurfacing can irritate your skin and trigger a breakout. Your doctor can prescribe an antiviral medication before your first treatment to ensure breakouts do not occur.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Benefits

Improving your overall appearance with laser skin resurfacing will reveal healthy new skin. Additional benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing include:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Minimal downtime
  • An ideal skincare approach for teens and young adults to prevent acne

As long as you maintain your skin, repeated treatments may not be needed.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

Your procedure is performed in-office. Your aesthetic specialist will apply numbing cream or local anesthetic. If you are having your whole face treated, you may be given general anesthesia. So it is best to have someone who can drive you home after your procedure. The Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure may take up to two hours, depending on the number of treated areas.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery

Twenty-four hours after your treatment, you need to clean your skin four to five times a day and apply an ointment to prevent scabs from forming. Your skin will heal within 10 to 21 days, but it depends on your skin condition and how deeply the laser penetrated your skin. Your aesthetic specialist will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Results

After your skin heals, you may wear oil-free makeup to minimize any redness, which will fade after two to three months.

You will have new skin and need to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin with an SPF of 30 or higher. It is extremely important to minimize your skin’s exposure to the sun. Depending on your treatment areas, this means wearing a broad-brimmed hat or long sleeves to protect your skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Will it hurt?

Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment isn’t painful. After the treatment, as your skin is healing, you will experience discomfort from itching, swelling, stinging, and some tenderness.

What are the risks?

It is normal to have itching and stinging after your treatment. You may be prescribed steroids to manage swelling. It is recommended to sleep with your head elevated and use ice packs when needed. Other potential risks include scarring, laser burns, pigmentation changes, reactivating herpes cold sores, or bacterial infection.

Does my insurance cover it?

Laser Skin Resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure and is not typically covered by insurance. It is best to check with your insurance provider about your coverage options.

How much does it cost?

During your consultation, your aesthetic specialist will break down your treatment cost. The price will vary for each patient and depends on the number of areas being treated. Allura Aesthetics offers payment and financing options for your convenience.
