Patients learn what to expect from laser skin resurfacing in Laguna Hills, CA

Posted By

Skin resurfacing from Doctor in Laguna Hills, CA

Aging, acne, and too much time in the sun can lead to scars, lines, wrinkles, or unhealthy skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a way to rejuvenate the skin, to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and to help patients regain a healthy, youthful glow. The laser safely and effectively resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin. In Laguna Hills, CA, the team at Orange County Eye Institute offers treatments such as laser skin resurfacing to help patients look their best.

Laser resurfacing precisely removes the skin layer by layer. New skin cells form as the body works to heal itself. The procedure stimulates the body to make new collagen. The new skin forms a tighter, more youthful surface. It is a great treatment for the skin because it is both rejuvenating and effective at reducing those fine lines and wrinkles as well as unwanted brown or age spots.

Collagen is a fibrous protein in the skin that gives the skin its structure and support. Unfortunately, as we age, the collagen is degraded by the sun and the various environmental toxins, making you look older. Therefore, rebuilding your collagen stores is important to restoring your natural beauty.

What to expect

Age, sun exposure, environmental toxins, and lifestyle choices all take a toll on our skin. As our largest and most visible organ, it is important to protect and care for the skin. Laser treatments have been designed to precisely, safely, and effectively resurface the skin. Skin resurfacing can be used on men and women of all skin types.

Patients seeking skin rejuvenation should have a consultation with Orange County Eye Institute to discuss their concerns and desired results. The procedure helps reverse the signs of aging. Old, damaged skin cells are eliminated and the body's natural healing response kicks in and new collagen is produced. Although lasers can be used on nearly any body surface, the commonly treated areas for skin resurfacing include the face, neck, chest, and hands. Small areas such as the wrinkles around the eyes may be addressed or the entire face may be treated. Treatments are customized for each patient.

Prior to your procedure, your physician may recommend avoiding medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen that can interfere with clotting. Smoking can also prolong the healing process. Precautions may be taken if you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters, as laser resurfacing can trigger an outbreak. Skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. The length of the treatment depends on the size of the area being treated.

On the day of the procedure, the treatment area is numbed first. The laser creates tiny wounds in the skin. As the it heals, old skin cells are removed as new collagen is produced. Following the procedure, patients are given post care instructions. After 24 hours, you may need to clean the treated area several times per day and apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabbing. Redness and swelling are common. The skin may also feel itchy for a few days. Five to seven days after the procedure, the skin may begin to feel dry and peel. The new skin will begin to shine through. It is important to protect your skin with sunscreen after it heals.
