Candidates for Laser Resurfacing
If you are looking for a non-surgical approach to get rid of deep lines and wrinkles, along with other skin imperfections, such as sun damage or liver spots, laser resurfacing may be right for you. Laser resurfacing will help give you fresh new skin that leaves you glowing.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
Dr. Leverett uses the 2940 laser to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, creating a matrix of nearly imperceptible wounds. As the wounds heal, they stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for wrinkle-free, firm, youthful-looking skin. The 2940 laser is so technologically sophisticated that it can improve abnormal pigmentation, age spots, skin texture, skin elasticity and skin firmness, in addition to addressing those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. The result of this laser resurfacing treatment is the generation of new skin that is smooth and even. *Not suitable for patients with a Fitzpatrick greater than four.
How Long Does Laser Resurfacing Take?
This is a single treatment procedure that can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What to Expect After Laser Resurfacing?
Immediately following treatment, the skin will take on a brownish appearance commonly referred to as bronzing. The bronzing will slough off in the following days to reveal healthy new skin. Therefore, the socialite in each individual can anticipate two to four days of initial social downtime. During the first two weeks after treatment, new skin will begin to form, and it is essential to avoid sun exposure during that time.
