Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
Non-smoking men and women with healthy skin who are not taking skin medications are ideal for the treatment. Most clients pursuing laser skin resurfacing have had trouble with crow’s feet, crumpling of the eyelid skin, laxity in the lower lids, brown spots, or troublesome scars of one kind or another, as well as overall wrinkling.
What can I expect from my Beverly Hills skin resurfacing procedure?
The aesthetician will offer you a choice of topical or oral anesthetics to maximize your comfort. He or she will then direct a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to gently heat the skin, vaporizing the damaged layer so that new, healthy skin cells may form. The depth and potency of the laser energy is customized to your exact needs and skin type.
After the treatment is finished, the practitioner will apply a protective cream or ointment to sooth the skin. In some cases, you may be asked to briefly wear a bandage. You'll be in great hands at The Biomed Spa when you come in for some of the best laser skin resurfacing Beverly Hills patients have come to love and trust.
After your procedure, the skin may be slightly irritated, red or pink, and in rare cases may bleed. This is natural and will clear up with time, usually within one week. The downtime needed usually lasts 1-2 days, after which the patients can return to work and normal activities if so desired. You can also take a look at our Gallery for some before and after photos of Beverly Hills laser skin resurfacing clients we've had in the past.
You may be asked to use a special cleansing solution and follow a strict skincare regimen designed to enhance your healing and comfort.
If you are a man, shaving should be avoided for around 7-10 days. If you are a woman, after two weeks you may use makeup to conceal any lingering facial redness.
While results do vary from patient to patient, most find that their skin feels and looks tighter, firmer and more radiant immediately. However, results will continue to improve over the course of several months as the effects of the laser heat show themselves by growing new collagen.
If you follow your provider’s recommendations and adhere to a healthy skincare regimen, results can last as long as 5 years, with an average of 3 years. As always, it’s important to wear sunblock, avoid long periods of sun exposure, and wear a sunhat when possible.
