Laser Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a breakthrough technology to improve the look of your skin, clearing away wrinkles, scars, and sun damage without invasive surgery. The treatment uses patented fractional technology, which delivers therapeutic light as an array of tiny microbeams.

These beams penetrate deeply into the skin, without harming surrounding tissues. By creating targeted micro-injuries, the tiny beams of light trigger a healing reaction without damaging your skin. The laser light stimulates the growth of healthy new tissue, resulting in more naturally youthful looking skin

What can laser resurfacing treat?

At Mudgil Dermatology, Dr. Mudgil provides this treatment to address the signs of aging and skin damage. Laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of:

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Traumatic scars 
  • Stretch marks
  • Liver spots
  • Large pores

The treatment also can minimize melasma, a skin condition that causes brownish patches on your face.

Is laser resurfacing right for me?

Dr. Mudgil evaluates your skin and reviews your medical history to make sure that laser resurfacing is appropriate for you. He may suggest a different form of skin rejuvenation if you have:

  • Dark skin tone
  • Acne outbreaks
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Sagging skin

In other cases, he may suggest pairing laser resurfacing with Botox as part of a complete skin rejuvenation strategy. Count on Dr. Mudgil, who is a dual board-certified dermatologist, to guide you in the selection of the best treatment for your skin. 

How long does laser resurfacing take?

Your treatment session at Mudgil Dermatology is relatively brief, although the exact length depends on the size of the area you’re having treated. Dr. Mudgil and the team at Mudgil Dermatology walk you through what to expect before your appointment.

Although laser resurfacing requires no downtime, you can expect to have some swelling and redness for about 48 hours afterward.

How many laser resurfacing sessions do I need?

Dr. Mudgil tailors your treatment to the condition of your skin. However, generally, you need four to six sessions to achieve maximum results from laser resurfacing. 

If you'd like a clearer, more youthful complexion, but you're leery of undergoing invasive surgery, call Mudgil Dermatology to learn more about laser skin resurfacing, or book a consultation online.
