Healing damaged skin doesn’t always require nips and tucks.
The long Ohio summer can take a toll on our skin, so as we continue to roll into the new season and approach the holidays, now is an excellent time to rejuvenate your look. However, with the busy schedules that we all have this time of year, recovering from surgery probably isn’t an option.
Here is how you can refresh your look for all the upcoming social events without the long recovery time. This is fractional laser resurfacing.
In the simplest possible terms, fractional laser resurfacing is one of the latest laser innovations in technology dedicated to skin rejuvenation. It only treats a fraction of the skin at a time – hence the name – leaving surrounding areas untouched and providing patients with the rejuvenating benefits with just a fraction of the recovery time that other treatments require.
If you’re struggling to cover up various skin flaws or signs of aging before going out – from fine lines and wrinkles to uneven pigmentation or rough skin – then fractional laser resurfacing can help provide for a more youthful and healthy appearance to build your self-confidence and comfort in social settings.
Other nonsurgical treatments such as CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing can be used to treat acne scars, sun blemishes, facial creases or mouth wrinkles, and drying skin around the eyes. CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing requires a bit more down time than fractional laser resurfacing, but if you still have time until your goal date, then it can still be an excellent alternative as well.
Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, the laser resurfacing recovery period is just about 1-3 days and may leave your skin looking as though it has endured a mild sunburn. Most patients do not need to miss work during this time and can also still take your kids out trick-or-treating with Halloween just around the corner.
