It can also be used to treat crow’s feet, sun damage, brown spots, acne, wrinkles, superficial scars and general blotchiness.*
The treatment is much less invasive than other cosmetic procedures due to using laser energy to remove as much top layer of the skin as may be needed. Laser skin resurfacing in Princeton, New Jersey permits much deeper removal using more precise techniques. Unlike alternative resurfacing procedures like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing essentially is absent of negative side effects like discomfort, bruising and bleeding.*

What is Involved in the Procedure of Skin Resurfacing in Princeton NJ And Aftercare?
During the procedure of laser skin resurfacing in Princeton NJ you will be wearing eye protection that shields you from the laser beams. The laser skin resurfacing happens as a computer-controlled laser beam scans over the area(s) being treated. The procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour- depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated and how deep you want the peel to go.*
After just a few days you will start to see changes in the surface of your skin. Swelling and redness of the skin are quite common immediately after the treatment, but these symptoms should decrease after a few hours. As far as aftercare goes, you will go home with skin care products and some instructions showing you how to use them. Make sure the directions are followed to a “T” so that your risk of infection is minimized. During the short healing time your skin’s top layers will be re-growing, and the new skin will be very sensitive to light. If you do have to go outdoors, make sure you cover your skin with either clothing or a sunscreen with a high SPF. Your healing time depends on the depth of your laser skin resurfacing treatment- and many people experience redness throughout the treated area(s), which could last several weeks.*
Your skin will take several weeks to heal, and it will probably take that long for you to see the final results. However, results will keep improving for several months after your procedure because as the skin is healing, new collagen is regenerating and filling in wrinkles and fine lines.*
Additional Procedure Information: Laser Skin Resurfacing Princeton
The key to laser skin resurfacing in Pricneton NJ is a specialized light that is emitted from a laser and passes through the surface of the skin, then absorbed by water in damaged collagen under your skin. The laser essentially evaporates fine layers of skin, which diminishes the look of wrinkles and fine lines. New skin is transformed from the older skin as new cells form during the healing process- making the skin softer and smoother.*
There are many conditions that laser skin resurfacing can treat, including: wrinkles, acne scars, solar lentigines (brown spots caused from sun exposure), epidermal nevi, actinic keratosis (rough, scaly patches developed from years of sun exposure), hypertrophic (raised) scars, syringoma, and surgical scars. It doesn’t matter what skin type needs to be treated, or even which area of the body needs to be resurfaced. The laser skin resurfacing in Princeton NJ is a procedure that can be used on your face, neck, and chest as well as hands.*

How Soon Will I See Results?
