Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing

Skin Care Procedure

Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from laser, light and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels and other non-ablative methods.

What should I expect during my recovery after skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?

When your procedure is completed, you will be instructed on how to care for the treated skin. Depending on the treatment received, your skin can appearance can range from normal, to red and flaky, to blisters and scabbing from 1 day to 4 weeks. It is important to discuss your specific treatment plan and anticipated recovery time before you proceed with the treatment.

You should also be reminded about:

  • The expected duration of your results
  • Specific concerns to look for in treated skin
  • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon
  • How to best protect and maintain your results
