Laser Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing at Afzal Clinics uses advanced laser technology to slough off outer skin cell layers and stimulate new cell production. The result is younger-looking, smoother, even-toned skin that can give you the confidence you deserve.

What are the benefits of laser resurfacing?

Some of the benefits you can expect by choosing skin resurfacing at Afzal Clinics include:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminished acne scarring
  • Less sun damage
  • Reduced age spots
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Healthier skin
  • Reduced skin imperfections
  • Even-toned skin
  • Improved complexion
  • Refreshed-looking skin
  • Healthy glow

Laser skin resurfacing is a simple, painless procedure. It can give you the revitalized skin you desire without invasive procedures or downtime.

Is laser resurfacing right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for laser resurfacing at Afzal Clinics, your specialist discusses your desired outcome and medical history with you. They examine your skin in areas you’re concerned about before tailoring a cosmetic treatment that’s best for you.

What should I expect during my laser resurfacing treatment?

During laser resurfacing, you rest comfortably in a reclining chair. The Afzal Clinics team numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid pain and gives you glasses to protect your eyes. They use a handheld laser device to apply energy to your skin, heat it, and stimulate collagen production.

The length of time your treatment lasts depends on the size of the treatment area, but it could last about 30-60 minutes or longer in some cases.

What happens after the laser resurfacing procedure?

After you undergo laser resurfacing at Afzal Clinics, there’s no downtime. You can get back to a normal daily routine immediately, but make sure you protect your skin from the sun. 

You can expect some redness, tenderness, and swelling that looks like sunburn at the site of treatment. Ice the area, or take over-the-counter medications to relieve any tenderness. Keep the treatment area clean, and use skin care products only as directed by your Afzal Clinics provider.

Over the next week or two, as your skin heals and cells regenerate, you will notice smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin with a healthy glow.
