The Procedure

Resurfacing and other skincare treatments are some of the best non-surgical ways to treat wrinkles and restore a youthful profile with less downtime than surgical alternatives. The treatment begins with thorough cleansing of the treatment area and then the application a topical anesthetic. The anesthetic is allowed to work on the skin for about 30 minutes and then removed.  Then, the resurfacing hand-piece is applied to the treatment area so that the energy can treat the affected skin and jumpstart your skin’s natural healing functions. Resurfacing can take as little as 30 minutes, depending on how extensive your treatment is.

Results & Recovery

Although Dr. Jennifer Janiga or nurse practitioner Darci Page NP-C will ensure you know what to expect during your recovery, your downtime will be largely based on how extensive your treatment is. Resurfacing can be performed at precisely-measured depths and intensities to make sure you get the results you need, but generally, lower settings require one to three days of recovery while higher settings require longer.

One of the most important parts of your recovery process is caring for your skin as it heals and rejuvenates. It’s highly important to avoid sun exposure during your recovery period, as resurfacing can cause your skin to be photosensitive. This can increase your risk of hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Your provider will also instruct you on which skincare products to use during this time to ensure your skin can heal quickly and effectively. Depending on your skin and intended results, you may require a package of treatments before you see best results, and your provider can recommend the best treatment schedule for your skin.
