Is There any Downtime with Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Are you bothered by signs of aging, sun damage, or acne scarring? Laser skin resurfacing can firm, tone, and brighten your skin. With Pixel skin resurfacing, you get all the benefits with less downtime and faster healing. You can start seeing your smooth, youthful results in about a week. 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing causes controlled damage to the skin, removing layers of old, damaged skin cells and triggering the healing process. The skin cells around the targeted areas will immediately respond with powerful healing factors. This leads to increased collagen production and brings new, healthy skin cells to the surface

Is There any Downtime With Laser Skin Resurfacing?

With the Pixel laser, you can expect some redness and swelling for one to three days. Your skin will spend the next five to seven days peeling. You can resume most activities within a day or two after treatment, but you may want to avoid social situations while your skin recovers. Your healing skin will be highly sun-sensitive, so follow all instructions about avoiding sun exposure and protecting your skin while it heals.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Pixel is a fractional laser, which means it only targets a small fraction of the skin’s surface area to allow faster healing. The laser creates microscopic channels into the skin, penetrating only about as deep as a few sheets of paper. The tiny channels trigger collagen development and the growth of new skin cells. As the old, dull layers of skin peel away, you will see newer, more radiant skin cells that have come to the surface. 

How Many Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments Will I Need?

We assess the number of laser skin resurfacing treatments you may need based on your skin concerns. We recommend three to four sessions for pigmentation and skin texture issues. Lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scarring may require up to five. We will schedule your sessions three to four weeks apart. 

What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing can produce dramatic results, removing years of aging, sun damage, and uneven texture. Pixel laser skin resurfacing gives you the benefits of laser treatment with less downtime, including:

  • Brighter, more radiant skin
  • Smoother skin texture
  • Diminished lines and wrinkles
  • Fading of acne scars
  • Decreased hyperpigmentation
  • Firmer, tighter skin

The best benefit of laser skin resurfacing might be how long it lasts. You can keep your results for three to five years. After that, you may choose to have another round of resurfacing to maintain or refresh your results. 

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
