What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Life Care for Women is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to eliminate damaged surface skin cells one layer at a time. The treatment is performed to help Chandler, Mesa, and Scottsdale, AZ patients reduce facial wrinkles and lines and diminish skin blemishes, like acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Sometimes referred to as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is considered an effective facial treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. More so, this treatment utilizing cutting-edge technology, such as Icon™ Aesthetic Systems, Opus Plasma®, and Hybrid™ laser technologies, can be customized to meet your unique needs. For more information, contact our Gilbert, AZ office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Linda Sodoma.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will vary based on the intensity of your treatment plan. However, we typically start by applying a topical anesthetic to numb your treatment areas. From there, we will utilize either the Icon, Opus, or Hybrid handheld device to perform your laser skin resurfacing.
You can relax in our treatment chair while the laser handpiece glides over the skin. You may feel the heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. This destroys dead and damaged skin cells while stimulating natural collagen production.
Afterward, a healing ointment will be smoothed over your skin and you can return home to recover. Your skin may be red, swollen, and irritated. This should subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day period. If you are undergoing a deeper resurfacing procedure, your downtime will take longer.
You will begin to notice your skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel off. It's important to avoid picking at the skin during the recovery process to keep it from scarring. After the peeling is finished, the treated skin will be softer, clearer, rejuvenated, and more youthful-looking.
Life Care For Women Reviews
Dr. Sodoma is the best! Terrific Dr plus the entire staff - everyone is always helpful, friendly, and attentive. It’s not just routine care, Dr is interested in your health, catching any issues early, and your quality of life.
Dr. Sodoma was my 2nd opinion and now my first choice moving forward. I was disheartened when I first heard of my situation and a patient recommended I see her doctor-Sodoma. My consult with her was 180 degrees from what I was told from the previous doctor. Sodoma took lead on my operation and the other doctors were excited to work with her postop which felt like further validation that I had chosen the right doctor for my care. A 20 year+ situation is now resolved and I have very little scarring. My body is rejuvenated and I can participate in life more fully.
Dr. Sodoma was so nice, helpful and receptive to my concerns. She explained things well and answered questions without making me feel rushed. The front and back staff was also friendly and engaging and I was taken promptly at my appointment time. Very good experience.
The whole staff makes you feel comfortable. They are pleasant and always have a smile on their faces.
Dr. Sodoma is amazing, she listened to my concerns and gave me recommendations to improve my quality of life. I truly appreciate her expertise. Awesome doctor!
