Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin in the treatment area is cleaned and your eyes are protected with safety shields. The physician positions the laser over the skin while a computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam in the designated treatment area. The procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
Will it be uncomfortable?
The level of comfort varies from patient to patient depending largely on the depth of treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is well tolerated with the use of a topical anesthetic. For deeper treatments, your physician may administer a local anesthetic.
How long will it take to recover?
Complete healing depends largely on the depth of treatment. Healing times for shallow treatments are typically 2-4 days. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with your physician.
What aftercare do I need?
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure.
- Avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed
