Am I a candidate for a skin resurfacing?
This procedure is mainly used for cosmetic purposes, if you have been taking acne medicine within 6 months before the procedure you might not be eligible. We recommend you contacting a board-certified aesthetic doctor for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for treatment.
Will it be painful?
Most patients experience a sanding sensation, but this is not painful. Moisturizer is applied to your face afterward to prevent irritation.
What happens after treatment?
You can return to your normal activities after leaving the doctor’s office. For the next 2 days, your skin will present similar symptoms to sunburn.
Will I need follow-up treatments?
Follow up is recommended to show more noticeable results. Periodicity will depend on the type of skin resurfacing treatment. The aesthetic doctor will let you know if you need a second treatment.
