Most people can name at least one thing they would like to change about their skin. As technology advances, more and more skin concerns are being addressed with specialized cosmetic lasers. Our office provides treatment with cosmetic laser in Chicago to help patients get the skin tone, texture, and appearance that they desire.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a skin resurfacing procedure that uses a specialized cosmetic laser to improve the texture and appearance of a person’s skin. There are two main types of laser rejuvenation treatment: ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative laser therapy works to remove thin layers of the skin, minimizing signs of skin damage. A non-ablative laser works to stimulate collagen growth and tighten tissues deeper within the skin.
We will meet with you for a consultation prior to scheduling you for treatment. Your consultation provides an opportunity for us to examine your skin, discuss your short and long-term goals, and provide personalized recommendations. For best results, we may suggest other facial treatments to prepare your skin for laser skin rejuvenation. Those with active acne breakouts may not be a candidate for this procedure prior to treatment.
Patients typically receive local anesthetic for their laser skin rejuvenation procedure. The procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Patients report a range of different sensations during treatment, depending on the specific area(s) being treated, the technique used, and individual pain tolerance.
Once the procedure is complete, it’s important to avoid unprotected sun exposure and strenuous activity for at least 1-2 weeks. Most patients will experience raw-feeling skin, swelling, or itching in the treated area that calms down with time. You will need to clean the area carefully and apply a protective ointment to promote fast healing.
