Laser resurfacing is a procedure to remove the outer layers of skin from your face and encourage new skin to grow. Most people have it to make their skin look and feel better by reducing wrinkles and scars.
If you have laser resurfacing, your practitioner will direct an intense laser beam onto your skin. This may be able to:
Your practitioner can direct the laser on particular problem areas such as wrinkles around your eyes, mouth or nose. Or they can treat your whole face. You can have laser resurfacing treatment on other areas too – for example, on the skin of your neck, chest, arms and hands.
Your skin is likely to be swollen and red for the first few days after the procedure. These are normal side-effects after laser resurfacing – and shouldn’t be anything to worry about. Your skin should heal after a week or so, and the redness should fade completely after eight weeks and this varies from person to person. You will be given a full aftercare routine by our team.
