Laser skin resurfacing by plastic surgeon Dr. Crofts
In this procedure, a laser destroys the outer layers of skin that were previously damaged. This enables the body to generate a new, healthy skin layer. If you have been searching for a way to improve the health of your skin, consider laser skin resurfacing at Aesthetica.
Prior to utilizing the laser, we cleanse the face of oils. Once an antibiotic ointment is applied, the laser ablates various layers of skin until the appropriate depth is reached. Laser skin resurfacing is performed with a local anesthetic, with or without sedation.
Antibiotic cream and bandages are applied to the area immediately following surgery. Patients should expect skin to be red and ooze at first. Any discomfort will be treated with oral medication.
