If you have concerns regarding the texture or appearance of the skin, skin resurfacing is a versatile option that can help you address these issues. Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center is proud to offer laser skin resurfacing treatments at our Vienna, Woodbridge and Rockville locations, serving men and women in Washington, DC, Maryland, Arlington and the surrounding communities of Virginia.
What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing is one of the most commonly performed laser treatments, offering patients a non-invasive technique that can address a range of cosmetic concerns. Laser skin resurfacing carefully exfoliates layers of the skin one by one, simultaneously stimulating collagen production for additional cosmetic benefits. At Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, we use fractional laser technology for our skin resurfacing treatments. With this type of laser, we can help patients address the following skin concerns:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Scars (including acne scars)
- Sun spots, age spots, and other discoloration
- Pre-cancerous growths
How Much Does Skin Resurfacing Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your skin resurfacing treatment starts at $500, but will vary depending on the size and number of the areas being treated, as well as the number of treatments necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. We offer flexible financing options to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is Skin Resurfacing Like?
A laser skin resurfacing treatment can take up to one hour, but the exact time will vary depending on the size of the area being treated. During treatment, a handheld laser device will be used to precisely deliver laser energy to the desired areas. This process is mostly comfortable, but patients may feel a tingling or warming sensation for the first few minutes. The level of laser energy is customized for each patient to ensure a safe, comfortable and effective treatment.
Is There Any Recovery Period After Skin Resurfacing?
After laser skin resurfacing, you may experience mild redness or swelling in the treatment area that can last for up to 10 days. During this time, it is essential to protect and moisturize the skin until it is fully healed. Patients are able to resume work and other activities after laser skin resurfacing, but we recommend limiting sun exposure as much as possible to prevent damage to the skin.
When Will I Notice Results from Skin Resurfacing?
The results from laser skin resurfacing will become visible once the skin has fully recovered from treatment. You may also notice additional improvements over the months following treatment as collagen continues to restore the skin. In most cases, multiple treatment sessions will be necessary to achieve the optimal results.
