It used to be that the mention of laser anything would make people think of a science fiction movie. However, the word laser has taken on a whole new meaning within the world of cosmetic and plastic surgery. Specifically by being able to help to restore your skin through laser treatments like laser resurfacing, laser treatments offer patients an easy and effective way to get younger and more youthful looking skin. To learn more about laser resurfacing, read on.
- No Downtime
When it comes to getting the best skin tightening results for your skin you may think that the only effective option out there is to get a facelift. And although facelifts are very effective at giving patients the results that they want and desire, they come with an ample amount of recovery time. Luckily, as one of the many perks of laser resurfacing, there is virtually no downtime. So you can actually go back into the office or to your yoga class the next day, without having to use any of your coveted vacation time.
- Great Results
Another obvious benefit of laser resurfacing is the amazing results you will receive. As a multi-faceted approach to treating your skin, laser resurfacing will help to treat blemishes on your face like sun spots and acne, while simultaneously tightening the skin and refining the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead.
- It’s Not Painful
Although it would be nice to be able to claim that laser resurfacing is pain free, the pain involved in the procedure is fairly light. Plus before you receive the treatment, Dr. Thomas F. Crais will apply a topical numbing cream on your face in order to help ease any pain or discomfort that you might feel during the treatment. Because laser skin resurfacing does involve creating microscopic holes in your skin in order for your skin to naturally heal itself, it might be a bit uncomfortable both during the procedure and afterwards. However, by taking an over-the-counter pain reliever like Ibuprofen, you should be good to go in no time.
As you can see, there are many wonderful benefits to laser skin resurfacing. If you would like to learn more about this treatment or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Thomas F Crais today!
