Which treatment is right for me?
Determining the laser skin resurfacing treatment most appropriate for a patient starts with a consultation appointment. Our doctors at Grossmont Dermatology Medical Center will evaluate patients and speak to them to find out what their goals are. With laser skin resurfacing treatments, most patients can obtain beautiful, healthy, glowing skin in as little as one treatment session. Our professionals will also educate patients on the various treatments to assist them in making an educated decision on the procedure best suited for their needs.
What can I expect for downtime?
The amount of downtime needed after a specific treatment will vary greatly depending on how aggressive of treatment is performed. Patients who perform laser treatment that treats the upper layer of the skin with mild heat may not have near as much downtime as a patient who has a deep, more aggressive laser resurfacing treatment. These individuals may need to take much more time off social activities to heal as the skin may become very red and blistered. Our professionals will educate patients on what to expect, depending on the treatment chosen.
