Dreaming of youthful, more vibrant skin and even complexion? Laser resurfacing might be your answer. The procedure involves using concentrated beams of light, or lasers, to remove damaged or unwanted skin layers, stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance and texture of the skin.
Laser resurfacing has been shown to be effective in addressing a variety of skin issues including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, acne scars, age spots, sun damage, and texture irregularities.
The treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and other parts of the body. The choice of laser type and settings is customized to the individual's skin concerns, specific needs and desired results.
Laser resurfacing treatment is most suitable for individuals with signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. Those who struggle with scars, uneven skin tone, pigmentation issues like sunspots or age spots, and rough or uneven skin texture can also benefit from the treatment.
The individual's skin type and tone should be compliable with the type of laser treatment chosen. Generally, people with fair to medium skin tones have more laser options available to them.
Those looking to undergo the procedure should be in good overall health, with no chronic skin conditions or any active infections in the treatment area. Non-smokers or those willing to abstain from it for a certain period ahead of the treatment are also better candidates, as smoking can adversely affect the healing process.
Laser resurfacing can work wonders, but a successful procedure embarks on with thorough preparation. Following these guidelines can ensure a smooth and effective journey towards healthier and more radiant skin.
Avoid excessive sun exposure for the weeks leading up to the procedure.
Quit or stop smoking for a specified period before the treatment.
Drink plenty of water as you prepare to undergo the procedure.
Strictly adhere to your practitioner's instructions regarding your skincare routine.
Avoid other cosmetic treatments in the same area where you plan to have laser resurfacing.
The procedure involves the application of the laser to the treatment area, where it interacts with the skin's surface. The concentrated light energy emitted by the laser heats and vaporizes the layers of the skin, thereby effectively removing dead or damaged cells. The laser creates micro-injuries in the skin that in turn trigger the body's natural healing response.
The process stimulates to the production of new collagen, a key structural protein in the skin. that helps enhance skin elasticity. Over time, as the skin heals and regenerates, it becomes firmer and plumper, revealing a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The longevity of results from this procedure may vary depending on a variety of factors including the type of laser treatment used, the individual’s unique skin characteristics, and their ability to maintain the post-procedure care.
Generally, the results of ablative treatments are long-lasting, and many people enjoy the benefits for several years. Non-ablative, on the other hand, may require periodic maintenance sessions to maximize the durability of results. It's essential to follow the post-procedure guidelines and adhere to the skincare regimen tailored for you to achieve sustainable the results.
While the laser resurfacing procedure is generally safe, there might be some potential risks and side effects associated with it. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and peeling, which can last for a few days to a couple of weeks. In rare cases, more severe complications like infection or scarring may occur. Working with a qualified dermatologist can minimise the likelihood of any risks and complications and ensure the best possible outcomes.
After waiting years to find a reputable and quality service for laser hair removal, I was so pleased to have found Dr. Zaidi’s services. She did an amazing job with my treatment. It was painless, clean & efficient. The office ambiance is so eloquent, the equipment is top notch. You really are getting a luxury experience from check in, to check out. Thank you, and can’t wait for my next appt! I highly recommended checking this secret gem out for your medical and/or aesthetic needs.
The exceptional, highest quality care, products & technique that has always been experienced at NOVA Concierge is now matched by the dazzling new offices. I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Zaidi - she is quite simply exactly what the industry has been missing. Her expertise, eye for detail, & genuine warmth put any anxieties to rest. You will be thrilled with your results!
I’ve been very happy with all the procedures I have received from Dr. Zaidi. She and her staff are professional and super friendly. Dr. Zaidi takes the time to explain everything and doesn’t pressure me to do something she may suggest. The new office is exquisite and I like going there for my visits.
She was so caring, willing to listen so rare to find in a doctor. She gave me all the options and prices before we started anything and wasn't pushy. She took time to understand my face and my needs.
I met Dr. Zaidi through a friend whose recommendations I trust. Never thought I’d be a Botox/filler “girl”, and explained all my concerns about looking unnatural. She understood and reassured me, so I decided to take the plunge. I’m so glad I did! The treatments were exactly what I was looking for, natural but improved. Subtle, yet such a difference!! I wish I had met her years ago. I’ve already referred a friend who loves her and the treatments as well. I’m back for a halo treatment and RF micro needling to address my neck and décolleté area, damaged from decades of sun exposure. I have every confidence in her ability to help me feel more confident about myself.
Flew in from Chicago to have this doctor assess and treat my lax and old skin! Dr Zaidi was most definitely worth the trip!
Came here because they just opened up in the same building. I’m so happy, a lot of my clients I sent over also love Dr Z. She is the kindest person I have met and my clients love her so much. She is so knowledgeable on everything and even more. I trust only Dr Z for all my needs.I got some fillers and Botox but I didn’t know what I needed when I went in but she was thorough and explained the anatomy, and why I needed what. She also kept telling me to be real and that miracles don’t happen after one visit. I’ll definitely be back she’s worth it. Also reasonable priced compared to other areas.
