What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If you have lines and wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation issues, or other facial flaws, you may benefit from laser skin resurfacing at Brickell Cosmetic Center. This nonsurgical aesthetic treatment utilizes pulsating beams of energy to exfoliate damaged skin layers. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is a great treatment for patients who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Based on the condition of your skin, the treatment will be customized to give you your ideal results. There is little downtime associated with most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Any concerns or questions can be reviewed with Miami, FL dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier during your initial consultation.

What Can I Expect from My Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?

Your laser skin resurfacing procedure will be done in our state-of-the-art Miami, FL office while you relax in one of our comfortable treatment chairs. We will apply a topical numbing cream, then pass the laser over your skin, targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. With a warming sensation from the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling device, most patients find the procedure relatively comfortable. However, the intensity of your procedure will vary, depending on your particular needs. After the procedure is complete, a healing ointment will be smoothed over your treated skin and covered with dressings. For the next couple of days, the treated skin may appear red with some swelling and irritation, followed by 3 – 5 days of peeling. Depending on the intensity of your treatment, recovery could take up to a few weeks. It's important to minimize sun exposure during this period. Eventually, your skin should feel softer while looking younger and rejuvenated.

Laser skin resurfacing FAQs

Is laser skin resurfacing right for me?

Brickell Cosmetic Center can help you choose the option that best meets your concerns and goals. Our team makes recommendations based on your current skin issues and how much downtime you're willing to undergo. If you're not sure, we may select a mild treatment at first, then gradually work up to a more aggressive plan.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

It's important to follow our aftercare instructions after laser treatment in Miami. Don't pick at the flaking skin and protect yourself against UV rays with hats and sunscreen. You should also avoid skin care products with chemicals or abrasive ingredients that could irritate the skin. Not following our guidelines could cause long-term damage.

Should I get laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel?

Even though both are great skin rejuvenation options, they have their own set of risks and benefits. Laser skin resurfacing can help you remove damaged layers of skin — so your new skin is healthier and smoother. In contrast, a chemical peel targets the top layers of skin to give it a more even tone and texture. Dr. Dozier can review each choice in full during an appointment.
