How does laser skin resurfacing improve skin?
Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes focused beams of light to remove damaged skin layers, stimulate collagen production, and promote the growth of healthy new skin cells.
Lasers generally come in two forms — ablative and non-ablative. Cutera excel HR incorporates both short- and long-pulse laser light energy for non-ablative treatment. That means this cutting-edge laser system can effectively address skin concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone without causing damage to the outer layer of the skin.
Non-ablative lasers target the underlying layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production without removing the skin's surface. This helps reduce healing time.
Who is a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing with Cutera excel HR is an excellent option for individuals looking to address mild to moderate skin concerns without undergoing invasive surgical procedures.
You may be a suitable candidate if you:
- Are unsatisfied with your skin's appearance
- Have skin surface issues such as rough texture or scaly patches
- Want to minimize skin damage and discoloration following treatment
- Have realistic expectations
- Are in good general health
- Do not have active skin infections or conditions
What can I expect from laser skin resurfacing treatment?
The laser skin resurfacing procedure typically takes 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the treatment area and the specific laser settings used with the Cutera excel HR technology.
Dr. Zaknoun will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the treatment. She will then carefully guide the Cutera excel HR laser device over the targeted areas, delivering precise beams of light to remove damaged skin and stimulate collagen production.
Following your laser skin resurfacing treatment with Cutera, you may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. But this typically subsides within a few days as long as you follow Dr. Zaknoun's aftercare instructions. This typically involves applying ointments, using gentle skin care products, and avoiding sun exposure in the weeks following treatment.
The results of laser skin resurfacing with Cutera excel HR appear gradually. It can take several weeks to see improvements in skin texture, tone, and clarity. Some patients may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. This will depend on the extent of your skin concerns.
