The most common laser peel treatment areas include:
Which type of laser skin resurfacing do I need?
Depending on the nature and severity of your concerns, your skin type, your available downtime, and other factors, Dr. Levinskaya may recommend a light, medium, or deep strength setting for your laser skin resurfacing treatment. While deep treatment will provide more dramatic and longer-lasting results, patients should keep in mind that the recovery will be longer and possibly more uncomfortable than with lighter treatments.
How long is recovery after laser skin resurfacing?
The details of your recovery after laser skin resurfacing will depend on the strength of the treatment that was performed, your adherence to laser peel aftercare guidelines, and more. Generally speaking, patients can expect some level of swelling and irritation after treatment, with the skin starting to peel and flake away about 2 – 3 days later. Patients who undergo a light skin resurfacing treatment often return to work within just a few days, while patients who choose deep laser skin resurfacing session may require 1 – 2 weeks of downtime.
When should I get laser skin resurfacing?
While your skin is healing from laser skin resurfacing, it is critical to avoid sun exposure. For this reason, many patients choose to have laser skin resurfacing performed in the fall, winter, or spring so that they will be able to enjoy time outside when the summer months come around. During your initial consultation for laser skin resurfacing in Plainview, NY, our knowledgeable team will discuss your concerns and goals for treatment, explain the healing and recovery process and length, and help you determine the most appropriate treatment schedule for you.
