What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses controlled laser energy to heat the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells, elastin, and collagen. Laser skin resurfacing is nonsurgical and can remove the outer damaged layers of skin to reveal new, healthier skin beneath. Offering laser skin resurfacing Bellevue facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ort aims to improve the following skin concerns:

  • Bumps from rosacea
  • Blemishes such as pimples and blackheads
  • Reducing the size of large pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Spider veins
  • Warts
  • Freckles and age spots
  • Stretch marks

Who is a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Most laser skin resurfacing procedures are performed on the face, but it is possible to have this treatment on other parts of the body such as the neck, arms or legs. There are different types of laser skin resurfacing techniques for each type of skin color, but this procedure works best on pale skin.

The goal of laser skin resurfacing is to reduce any abnormalities on the skin or to create a different skin texture. First, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Ort to discuss your skin problems that require treatment. During this consultation, you should provide your health history that includes any allergic reactions to other treatments in the past.

How is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?

You do not need general anesthesia for laser skin resurfacing, but we can apply a numbing gel on the skin. The laser that we use does not heat your skin, but the pulsating rays of light will change the condition of the surface and underlying layers of your skin.

The laser is controlled by a machine that regulates the pulses of light precisely while Dr. Ort moves the handheld laser over the area of skin that requires treatment. This cosmetic process works by breaking apart the molecular bonds in the skin abnormalities, and the laser skin resurfacing treatment will also stimulate the production of additional elastin and collagen that can give the skin a more youthful appearance. The treatment time for laser skin resurfacing varies, but it will last for less than two hours.

What can I Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

This is an outpatient procedure, so our Bellevue laser skin resurfacing patients will return home to recover. You should avoid touching the treated skin, and it is a good idea to avoid direct sunlight for several days. Avoid applying makeup to the tender skin until the treated area stops peeling or the redness on the skin diminishes. However, Dr. Ort will provide a cleansing product for the skin that you should use several times a day to prevent an infection.
