The laser resurfacing procedure at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania
Laser resurfacing procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, using topical numbing cream or injectable anesthetics. All of our laser resurfacing treatments are performed by board-certified dermatologists who make patient comfort a top priority. Depending on your procedure, we will discuss your anesthesia options before treatment.
Once the treatment area is numb, your dermatologist begins the treatment using the selected skin resurfacing laser, which is moved slowly around the treatment area. You may feel a warm, tingling, or prickly sensation. Many of our devices include integrated air cooling to enhance patient comfort.
Laser resurfacing for the face can take about 15-60 minutes for topical numbing and about 10-20 minutes for the treatment, depending on the treatment performed.
Many patients can benefit from multiple treatment sessions. Your dermatologist will assess your skin to better determine the right procedure plan for you.
