Laser Skin Rejuvenation in Ashburn, VA
Laser rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that can correct a vast array of skin imperfections. Treatment is performed with our Splendor X from Lumenis. Treatments can be tailored to the unique needs and desired of the individual patient. Results and recovery times will depend on the depth of the procedure, with deeper treatments offering more dramatic results, but longer recovery periods after treatment
How it works?
It works by creating tiny micro-wounds while leaving bridges of untreated skin, thus treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface; As a result discomfort and healing time are minimized. Skin resurfacing appeals to a broad range of patients, from those needing to repair light damage to those wanting more dramatic results. The procedure lives up to its promise to reduce skin imperfections and promote collagen regeneration for long term wrinkle reduction, reclaiming the skin’s youthful appearance, tone and color.
What to expect?
Recovery from laser rejuvenation depends on how deep the treatment worked. Immediately following treatment you can experience some swelling and redness.
Sometimes during the procedure, the area treated can appear red for a longer period of time. In most cases, this issue resolves in one to three weeks. Normal activities may be resumed, in most cases, within 5-7 days. Lighter treatments may result in skin redness similar to sunburn, which may persist for a number of days. Deeper treatments require longer recovery periods of 7-14 days, which may be characterized by skin redness and flaking away of the outer skin layer.
During the recovery period and for a number of weeks after, our experts will recommend specific skincare products to protect the skin, promote healing and enhance the results of your procedure. Results of laser resurfacing may be evident right away, but will continue to improve over time as the skin initiates its own healing process and collagen production. Results may last for many years before any type of touch-up treatment is required.
