Laser Skin Resurfacing
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing performed?
This procedure is performed in the office with no downtime. Patients will be prescribed an EMLA cream that numbs the treatment area. The pulsed laser removes the superficial layers of the skin. This also helps in tightening the skin. Usually, the area that is treated is covered in ointment and healing is completed within a week or two. Slight redness/ pink color remains for about a month to up to 6 months. Once the healing period of 2 weeks is over, you can begin wearing makeup.
Recently, Dr. Soler gave a group talk on the various laser treatments options available in his office. The following movie is the actual presentation from his talk. Each topic has an F.A.Q section and Before/After photos.
