What can laser skin resurfacing help treat?
Women and men visit our practice near Boston for laser skin resurfacing treatments that can be performed on the entire face or a specific trouble spot like the eye area or around the mouth. These treatments can enhance the appearance of the chest and hands as well. Just a few of the many improvements are:
- Smoothing out rough skin, wrinkles, and fine lines such as crêpey eyelid skin and acne scars
- Correcting splotchiness and uneven pigmentation due to age spots and sun spots
- Improving acne scarring
- Fading dark under eye circles
- Eliminating precancerous skin growths
As an innovator in non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques, Dr. Petropoulos will help you decide between the variety of skin rejuvenation options she offers in addition to laser resurfacing like Fraxel®, micro laser peels, photofacials, microdermabrasion, and ProFractional™ therapy. She can also recommend a comprehensive facial rejuvenation plan that might include BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, and Thermage® treatments, with or without facial surgery.
What can i expect during treatment?
In general, laser resurfacing treatments take about an hour to complete and usually involve only minor discomfort for which we offer local anesthetic. In quick pulses the laser energy vaporizes the outer layer of skin instantaneously, allowing fresh, smooth skin to emerge from below. Collagen production is increased as well, which gives the skin a plump, youthful look.
We are pleased to offer various laser treatment types in our office that require different amounts of down time depending on the needs of each patient with regards to social and work commitments.
Our laser treatments range from those that require no down time whatsoever such as Fraxel and photofacials, to the medium downtime treatments that make the skin light pink for 2 or 3 days like micro laser peels, to those that make the skin red for a week and require the longest recovery time for those patients with severe wrinkling. The redness fades away producing wonderful new skin. Patients are able to choose the laser treatment that is best for their aesthetic needs and to best fit their lifestyle.
what can i expect for results after laser skin resurfacing?
Once the skin is fully healed, Dr. Petropoulos’ patients are invigorated by their vibrant skin that looks and feels years younger. Our patients look well-rested, refreshed, and youthful.
