Skin resurfacing treatments can help treat damaged skin and cosmetic concerns to produce a beautiful, smooth complexion. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of skin resurfacing techniques with the guidance of Dr. Go, a highly trained plastic surgery physician for residents of Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Irvine, and the surrounding areas of CA.
What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin damage and other imperfections can accumulate over the years, detracting from a clear complexion and otherwise youthful appearance. With skin resurfacing treatments, patients can exfoliate the outermost layers of damaged skin to reveal brighter, clearer skin underneath. Some deeper skin resurfacing treatments can even tighten the dermis and stimulate collagen production, which results in longer-lasting improvements in skin elasticity and volume. With skin resurfacing treatments at Newport Plastic Surgery, patients can address the following cosmetic skin concerns:
- Acne scarring
- Age spots and sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Thin, crepey-type skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
Depending on your skin type and your treatment goals, we may recommend either chemical peels or CO2 laser skin resurfacing for your skin resurfacing treatment.
How Much Do Skin Resurfacing Treatments Cost?
The cost of skin resurfacing treatment will vary depending on the treatment chosen, and may vary further depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
Can Skin Resurfacing Treatments Be Used as a Wrinkle Treatment?
Patients often find that skin resurfacing treatments can have a noticeable effect on the appearance of wrinkles. In fact, wrinkles and fine lines are some of the most common reasons that patients pursue skin resurfacing treatments. With many of our techniques, patients can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles to restore a smooth, youthful appearance.
What is Recovery Like After Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
The recovery from skin resurfacing treatments will vary depending on the techniques used during treatment. With both laser resurfacing and chemical peels, the skin may be red and sensitive after treatment, much like a sunburn. It will be important to protect the treated areas from sun exposure until they heal, as they will be highly sensitive. Despite these side effects, patients are typically able to return to work and other normal activities within a day of treatment for chemical peels, and a week for the deeper CO2 laser resurfacing procedure.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
The results from skin resurfacing treatments typically develop gradually over the weeks following treatment. This is because it takes time for collagen to be produced in the body and subsequently lift and tighten the skin. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
