The most commonly treated areas are the face and neck. Many other areas such as the chest and hands can also be treated. Dr. Al-Saadon would highly recommend that patients for pigmentation in the face follow a strict protocol to maximize the results from a laser peel. Aftercare products are also recommended to protect the skin and maintain results. Please discuss your needs with Dr. Al-Saadon, or one of his qualified skin care professionals.
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your ryes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will position the laser over the skin while a computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam in the designated treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15-30 minutes.
The comfort level of laser resurfacing treatment varies from patient to patient and depends largely on the depth of your treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is well tolerated with the use of a topical anesthetic. For deeper treatments, your physician may administer a local anesthetic.
Immediately following the treatment, you may experience redness and a sensation resembling a sunburn. Swelling may also occur in the treated areas. Dr. Al-Saadon will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist. If you suffer from herpes simplex 1, commonly known as cold sores, Dr. Al-Saadon will prescribe you an antiviral to control outbreaks that may be triggered by the laser.
Complete healing will depend largely on the depth of the treatment, healing times for shallow treatments are typically 2-4 days before patients resume normal activities. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with your physician.
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin. When should I expect results? Depending on your treatment, the top layer of your skin will re-epithelize and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will notice improvements in your skin’s texture, tone and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4-6 months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.
