What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Ageless Aesthetics is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged surface skin layer by layer. The treatment is used for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for minimizing skin blemishes, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Also referred to as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is considered an ideal facial treatment for patients desiring clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the condition of the skin type, the laser can be adjusted for best results. There is little downtime associated with most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Any questions or concerns may be discussed with Warner Robins and Macon, GA board-certified aesthetic physician Dr. Anayo Umerah during your consultation.

What Can I Expect from My Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
During your laser skin resurfacing treatment, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the ProFractional™ laser handpiece passes over your skin, directly targeting the specific sections for improvement. You will feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser carefully works to eliminate damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth. Afterward, a healing ointment will likely be smoothed over your skin and you can return home to recover. Your skin will look red, and you will probably experience some irritation and swelling. This is normal and should subside in a few days, followed by the peeling process. You can expect your skin to peel over a 3 – 5-day period. If you had a deeper laser treatment, your downtime may last between 2 – 3 weeks. Every patient should limit their sun exposure following their resurfacing appointment and use sun protection throughout the day. It is crucial to avoid interfering with the recovery process to keep from scarring and to protect your skin from environmental exposure. After the peeling process has been completed, the treated skin should feel smoother and look younger, clearer, and rejuvenated.
