Improve Dull Textured Facial Skin With Laser Skin Resurfacing
Your facial skin plays a significant role in how you look and feel about yourself. Unfortunately, this same skin can become damaged over time due to the sun, harsh weather, exposure to chemicals, and simply getting older. With laser skin resurfacing, you can once again have soft, clear, and younger-looking skin. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic in San Antonio and Live Oak, TX, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher can help you ditch dull textured skin by achieving healthy skin you’ll love.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Everyone wants to love the skin they’re in. However, that can be challenging, especially if it’s dull and unhealthy-looking.
That’s where laser skin resurfacing comes in. Also known as a laser peel or fractional skin resurfacing, this noninvasive cosmetic procedure is done at our office in either San Antonio or Live Oak, TX. It uses pulsating beams of energy to remove damaged skin one layer at a time.
At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, laser skin resurfacing is customized to your skin type and needs. We are also the first practice in San Antonio to use Alma Opus® Plasma technology – a revolutionary fractional plasma laser that is adjusted to different power levels based on your skin and desired outcomes.
How does laser skin resurfacing improve skin texture?
Your skin is full of many layers. Sometimes, the outer layers become damaged, causing them to look damaged, unhealthy, and dull.
Laser skin resurfacing gets rid of the outer layer of skin, including any damaged and dead skin cells. It also heats the skin underneath, which promotes collagen production over time, leading to improved skin tone and texture.
After laser skin resurfacing with Dr. Boucher, you’ll notice improvements in both skin texture and pigmentation (coloring) for the skin you’ve always wanted.
What happens during laser skin resurfacing?
Before your laser skin session at our office in San Antonio or Live Oak, TX, you’ll be given a topical anesthetic to help you remain comfortable and relaxed.
During your appointment, your technician will use a laser handpiece to target the areas you want to be rejuvenated. Once laser skin resurfacing is complete, we may cover the treated area with protective dressings.
What can I expect after laser skin resurfacing?
Following your laser skin resurfacing session, your skin might look pink or feel swollen or irritated for a few days. As your skin heals, this will subside.
The recovery period can range from a few days to several weeks. During this time, treated skin will naturally peel and flake away. It’s important not to pick or peel at this skin, as that can create long-term damage or scars. You should also avoid hair removal methods, such as shaving or waxing.
Once healing is complete, your skin will feel softer – and it will look younger, clearer, and rejuvenated. The effects of laser skin resurfacing can last for years, but you may want to undergo another session before then. Depending on your needs and desires, you might choose light, moderate, or aggressive settings for follow-up treatments.
