Have aging, acne, and excessive exposure to the sun left you with scars and blemishes on your skin? If yes, laser skin resurfacing can restore your skin and leave you looking radiant, youthful, and healthier. Laser skin resurfacing is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that involves painlessly removing the damaged layers of the skin. Once the damaged skin layers are removed, new skin cells form, resulting in a markedly improved appearance. Your skin will look and feel tighter, suppler, and scar-free.
FOREVIVA offers skin resurfacing in Menlo Park, CA. You can choose to have skin resurfacing alone or together with other cosmetic procedures.
Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. Our doctor may choose to treat various parts of your face individually, or your entire face as a whole, depending on the occurrence of the lines, wrinkles, scars, and other issues. Laser skin resurfacing can also be performed on other parts of your body, including your chest, arms, and neck.
During treatment, you will receive local anesthesia and a sedative or general anesthesia if you’re getting treatment for your whole face.
Treatment for sections of the face typically requires 30 to 45 minutes; full-face treatments may extend to two hours. After treatment, our doctor bandages the treatment areas. Pay special attention to the after-care instructions that our doctor gives you, as these are aimed at facilitating healing.
Our doctor will give you comprehensive guidelines regarding how to prepare for laser skin resurfacing. Among the directives you will need to observe include stopping any medication that may interfere with clotting. This includes supplements and other medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen.
If you’re smoker, our doctor will advise you to quit for two weeks before and after the skin resurfacing procedure. Smoking can prolong the healing period.
If you’re prone to cold sores or blisters, you may get antiviral medications to keep these in check. Antibiotics may also be prescribed as a measure against bacterial infections.
