If you think surgery is the only option for treating age-related, cosmetic skin concerns, you may be surprised to learn that other innovative procedures can produce beautiful, long-lasting results. Laser skin resurfacing at our Idaho Falls practice is a non-surgical approach that addresses and improves your skin’s texture and appearance from the inside out.
Laser Resurfacing Helps Many Skin Concerns
Sometimes called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing can be used on many areas of the body and is particularly popular for the face, eyelids, and neck. The procedure’s laser energy impacts the outer layer of skin and encourages your body to “heal” by producing new cells and collagen to generate younger-looking skin.
Laser skin resurfacing helps diminish many signs of aging by:
- Significantly tightening and enhancing overall skin texture on the face and eyelids
- Penetrating deep into the skin tissue to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sagging
- Smoothing skin tone and improving pigmentation irregularities
Advanced Technology to Fit Your Lifestyle
We believe there is no “one size fits all” laser treatment and will talk with you about both your cosmetic goals and your lifestyle. Some people want to address their skin conditions in as few sessions as possible, so they may opt for deeper, more-intense treatments that require a healing period. People with an active lifestyle or numerous outside commitments often chose shallower but more frequent treatments so they can enjoy little to no downtime. We can adjust the laser’s depth and intensity so you have many options for both treatment results and recovery time.
Choose Your Recovery Period
After treatment your skin will likely appear red or pink and feel warm, similar to a sunburn. If you choose less-intense treatments, you will probably be able to return to work the day after your session. With more intense treatment, you may need more time at home for your skin to appropriately heal. In all cases, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun after the laser procedure. We can provide a good estimate of your recovery timeline once we determine your treatment plan.
Love Your Results
Your skin will continue to heal for a few weeks after treatment, and with time you’ll gradually see a brighter, more radiant complexion. You’ll also notice that small sun spots and acne scars are less visible. If you practice good skincare habits, you can maintain healthier, younger-looking skin for many months. With occasional follow-up appointments, you can prolong your results over the long term.
Schedule an Appointment Before Important Events
At Freeman Plastic Surgery, you can choose from various laser treatments, and many patients use our NanoLaserPeel a week before parties and big events. This is our most gentle resurfacing procedure, and it leaves the skin looking renewed and feeling refreshed in just 3 to 4 days. Although it’s a mild laser treatment, the NanoLaserPeel can help you feel confident and beautiful, especially when you are in the spotlight.
