Laser skin resurfacing can dramatically improve the condition of the skin. Even moderate changes in facial skin texture, smoothness, and evened skin tone can create a profound enhancement of your natural beauty.
When your Los Angeles laser skin resurfacing procedure is complete, a dressing with special ointments will be applied to your face to keep the healing skin supple. Swelling is normal and should disappear in a day or two. After 24 hours, you will need to clean the areas treated four to five times a day, then apply an ointment to prevent the development of scabs.
This routine continues for about a week and a half. Post-procedure redness is common and gradually fades over two to three months. In a few weeks, you should see new skin that is fresh and pink, with reduced signs of lines and wrinkles.
The pink hue eventually fades and you may notice that your skin is lighter in tone for a period. It is important that you protect your skin during this time. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF factor of 30 or higher.
