Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing works on many skin types, including very light and very dark skin. Different resurfacing options can knock out the deepest wrinkles, improve the most challenging scars, and help correct a wide variety of other skin imperfections. Your provider will discuss treatment options with you.
How does it work?
Your provider uses a fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. Fractional skin resurfacing with Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process created new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger skin.
How long does treatment take?
Most treatments last no more than an hour. Depending on the condition being treated, your provider may recommend a single treatment session or a series of progressive treatments for your best results.
How quickly will I recover?
Usually you may resume your regular activities the same day following some treatments, more aggressive procedures may require several days of healing. Ask your provider about what you can expect from your treatment.
Does it hurt?
Depending on the options your provider selects, most people feel minimal discomfort during and after the treatment. In some cases, your provider may recommend mild pain management options during the procedure and/or for a few days following the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Depending upon the treatment option your provider recommends, you can expect to experience a temporary redness, warmth, and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. In other cases, some post-care wound management may be necessary for a few days following treatment. Your provider will discuss potential side effects and your post treatment expectations with you based on the type of treatment you’ll receive.
