If you’re wanting to achieve a smoother complexion, laser skin resurfacing in Encinitas is an efficient technique to lessen the indications of aging and give your face an overall fresher, more youthful appearance. Many patients also report that our treatment enhances their overall confidence in the end!

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Vital elements of good skin will gradually deteriorate over time, and UV light and environmental contaminants expedite this damage. Due to this, fine wrinkles arise, skin becomes drier and looser, dark patches show up, a rough texture may grow, and pores may look bigger. These difficulties with skin texture, pigmentation, and look are best treated with laser skin resurfacing treatments at Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa in Encinitas.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Cosmetic laser resurfacing, commonly known as a “laser peel,” smoothes the face skin by repairing damaged regions and reducing tiny wrinkles with the use of a laser. In laser resurfacing, a laser beam is utilized to precisely melt the top layers of damaged or wrinkled skin. The surface of the skin becomes smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking as new cells develop throughout the healing process.

By gently warming the top dermis during a laser skin resurfacing treatment, visible facial vessels and diffuse redness may be reduced, enhancing the overall look of your skin. The end effect is a youthful and healthy appearance for men and women who opt for this treatment option.

How Long Are Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?

Our laser skin resurfacing in Encinitas treatments are very quick and effective treatments for patients in Encinitas. The laser uses a ground-breaking, unique laser procedure with an Air flow Dynamic Cooling Device that targets and warms collagen in the upper dermis while shielding the epidermis and takes about an average of 10 to 30 minutes to complete.

How Long Is Recovery After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Since there is no recovery or downtime, your treatment may be a “lunchtime” procedure where you can immediately return to work. That said, depending on the severity of your treatment, you should always discuss your treatment plan and the time between successive treatments with your expert to ensure that your results turn out exactly as you want them to.

Are Treatments Painful?

Many patients describe the process as being gentle, with nothing more than a little snapping or tingling sensation, due to the laser’s Dynamic Cooling Device’s effectiveness. Of course, pain is a personal experience, and patients are free to utilize topical anesthetics if they so want. You should talk with your Encinitas expert about your expectations even though outcomes might vary.

What Regions Are Treatable With Laser Skin Resurfacing?

With laser skin resurfacing in Encinitas, unlike many other modern procedures, your expert may, if requested, safely treat your whole neck and face region.

What Should I Anticipate Before The Treatment?

With this method, there are no elaborate pretreatment procedures. You will be requested to remove any makeup or moisturizers before the actual laser skin resurfacing procedure, and in certain situations, you could even be required to shave the affected area to prevent interference with the laser. All pretreatment criteria will be reviewed by and with assistance from your expert.

What To Expect After Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment

You may have some little redness just after the procedure. Usually, the redness subsides within a few hours for most people. Patients often find the procedure as soothing and pleasant, with mild but evident visual improvements. If you protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen before going outside to undertake your usual activities, you should be able to go back to them straight away.
