Laser skin resurfacing is a popular and effective treatment for addressing wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, discoloration, and other skin imperfections. At our Greenville, SC practice, the laser skin resurfacing treatment plan is customized to your individual needs and skin type for maximum skin rejuvenation results.
During the laser skin resurfacing procedure, a laser is passed over the treatment area. The laser removes the old, damaged upper layer of skin cells. During the healing process, the body replaces this layer with fresh, healthy skin cells, resulting in a smoother skin texture, more even skin tone, and more youthful appearance overall.
Laser skin resurfacing is typically performed under local anesthesia. The treatment area may take one to two weeks to heal. Most patients are able to return to work and other daily activities about one week after the laser skin resurfacing procedure.
