Healthy skin is critical to achieving a natural, youthful look. Laser surgery, chemical peeling, or microneedling can be performed as a standalone procedure, or in conjunction with eyelid or facial surgery, to rejuvenate and refresh the skin.
Skin resurfacing uses focused light, chemical peels, or microscopic needles to remove the surface layers of the skin, which contain the wrinkles, folds, and scars which blemish the skin. This allows new, healthy skin to be regenerated without any of the unsightly marks of age or sun damage.
Different types of treatments can address different types of blemishes, and have different recovery times. We will examine your skin and together, you will come up with a plan for optimal skin rejuvenation.
Will I be asleep for surgery?
Dr. Ramesh is typically able to perform these delicate surgeries under IV sedation, or twilight anesthesia. This avoids the risks of general anesthesia and being put to sleep completely, while still preventing you from feeling any pain.
What is recovery like?
Surgery takes between 30 – 60 minutes, and patients can go home afterwards. Usually, patients have redness and mild swelling in the treated areas for 1-2 days to 2 weeks, depending on the treatment. Patients must keep the treated areas lubricated with topical ointments and moisturizers until the skin is completely rejuvenated. Pain is minimal and controlled with oral medication.
With deep laser resurfacing, most patients are ready for social events in 3-4 weeks, and “wedding-ready” by 2 months.
