What is a Laser Facial?

Laser treatments are medical procedures involving a highly focused laser light beam, which allows Dr. Hankins to perform precise movements, addressing the treatment of damaged tissue without affecting the healthy tissue in the same area. A laser facial, also called laser skin resurfacing or a laser peel, is a non-surgical, in-office treatment that heats the skin’s superficial and lower layers to cause controlled microdamage and activate the body’s healing response. 

What are the Benefits of a Laser Facial?

Laser treatments are medical procedures involving a highly focused laser light beam, which allows Dr. Hankins to perform exact movements, addressing the treatment of damaged tissue without affecting the healthy tissue in the same area. Laser facial treatments offer multiple benefits for individuals like yourself seeking to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The following are some of the key benefits:

  • Tightens skin
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduces scarring
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Treats irregular pigmentation 
  • Rejuvenates the skin.

Who are the Best Candidates for a Laser Facial?

The ideal candidates for laser facial treatments are those with good skin elasticity, overall health, and a non-oily complexion. This procedure works more effectively on light to medium skin color. Those with light or moderate blemishes or wrinkles can benefit from laser facials. Non-smokers are often better candidates for this procedure as smoking can interfere with the healing process. In addition, any candidate for this procedure must understand what laser facials can do and have realistic expectations for their results.

Laser Facials First Step

What’s the
first step?

The first step to getting a laser facial treatment at Premier Plastic Surgery is to schedule an initial consultation. You can contact our office and professional staff directly at (713) 370-4433, visit our website, fill out the contact form, or select our “contact” tab. During your initial consultation, you will have the chance to review your expectations, goals, and potential concerns. Our team is committed to providing the highest level of attention and will guide you through the entire process. 

What to Expect From a Laser Facial Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser facial treatment, uses a laser to improve your skin’s appearance or treat minor facial flaws. Our care team will numb your skin with medication. You might be sedated for those requiring a more extensive resurfacing of the entire face. The laser beams will destroy the outer layer of skin and heat the underlying skin to stimulate collagen production over time, resulting in better skin texture and tone. Most patients describe the feeling as similar to a mild sunburn, showing signs of swelling and redness. There is a chance of stinging or itching for a few days after the treatment. All patients respond differently to laser facial treatment.

Laser Facial Recovery

After laser facial resurfacing, your skin may react differently, but it usually feels like a mild sunburn. The treated area may be raw, swollen, itchy, red, and oozing, and you may experience stinging for a few days. Depending on the treatment depth, you may also have bruising, which should resolve in 7–10 days. 

Your skin will usually dry out and peel around five days to a week after the procedure. New skin usually covers the area in one or two weeks, but full recovery can take at least a month. The redness may fade in two to three months, but it could take up to a year to completely disappear.
