Are There Side Effects with Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If you want to effectively minimize the appearance of aging, hyperpigmentation, and other complexion concerns, laser skin resurfacing may just be the answer you’ve been searching for.

Laser skin resurfacing can take on different forms; in some instances, the treatment can remove the top layer of the dermis, while in other instances, the procedure creates micro-channels in the skin to heighten cellular turnover and boost collagen production.

But with all the benefits come questions, with the most popular being: “Are there side effects with laser skin resurfacing?”

Side Effects from Laser Skin Resurfacing

There are some side effects that can come from laser skin resurfacing, but nothing that’s debilitating or may prevent you from going about your day. Most patients commonly experience redness, slight swelling, and a warming sensation for the first few days after laser skin resurfacing. Some patients may experience peeling for the first five to seven days after the procedure.

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Safe?

Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and highly effective procedure that’s ideal for clients who want to achieve a beautifully smooth and clear complexion. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for a variety of skin issues, making it one of the most comprehensive and non-invasive skin treatments available today.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

You’re a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing treatments if you have acne and/or acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation or sun damage, and/or uneven skin tone. Laser skin resurfacing may not be the best option for patients with darker skin tones.

There will be four treatments. I did this because I want to feel better about myself, more confident. I have seen a great change in my skin after two treatments, skin is soother, healthier looking and brighter. There was some downtime due to scabs after first treatment but the results are worth it.
