Skin Resurfacing in Washington, DC
Dr. Yousefi offers laser skin resurfacing for patients in Washington, DC, Arlington, Vienna, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
In laser resurfacing, areas of damaged or wrinkled skin are removed layer by layer via laser treatments. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Many patients choose to have laser skin resurfacing in conjunction with another cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Laser skin resurfacing can effectively treat the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Chicken pox scars
- Trauma scars
- Sun spots
- Age spots
How Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure that can take up to one hour. A laser is used to send light to the skin that will be resurfaced. Because the laser energy is so precise, the depth of resurfacing can be tailored to meet the patient’s unique needs.
When the imperfections are especially deep, Dr. Yousefi may recommend that the resurfacing be performed in two or more stages.
What Can I Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing?
After your laser skin resurfacing treatment, you may choose to treat the resurfaced skin with applications of protective creams or ointments until healing is complete. Many patients experience some mild swelling and discomfort after laser resurfacing, which can be controlled with ice packs and medications prescribed by Dr. Yousefi.
During this phase of healing, it is very important that you not remove the crusts from the treated area or scarring may result. Most patients are free of crusts by about 10 days after the procedure. Redness may persist for several weeks.
