Skin resurfacing can refer to any number of different techniques including chemical peels, fractional resurfacing, and microdermabrasion. Though each of these procedures differs in terms of technique and the resurfacing substances that are used, the end result is the same. Skin resurfacing treatments help reveal healthy, glowing skin. Brown spots, scarring, and discoloration are improved and the production of collagen is stimulated resulting in firmer, plumper skin with less visible fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin resurfacing is a wonderful option for patients who would like to rejuvenate their skin for a healthier, more youthful appearance without having to undergo more invasive and costly surgical techniques. Skin resurfacing procedures have the added benefit of revealing naturally better-looking skin and a freshened appearance.
Because skin resurfacing procedures are non-surgical and non-invasive, patients need not worry about anesthesia or recovery times. Depending on the procedure that is chosen, most skin resurfacing sessions can take anywhere from only 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Aside from warmth or slight tingling sensations, skin resurfacing is often rather pain-free, and little to no downtime is required following treatment, but sun exposure should be avoided for a couple of weeks before and after treatment.
It is important to note that for optimal results with skin resurfacing procedures, several sessions are often recommended. These sessions are spread out over a few weeks to give the skin time to rest and breathe between each session.
Was very cautious, and thought long and hard about whether I should or shouldn't. Awesome decision. Should have done it a long time ago. A great accomplishment that couldn't have been done without the help of Dr. Colony and his awesome team. If you're living a minute with any self-doubt or low self-esteem about a certain body part, put your Nikes on and JUST DO IT!
Dr. Colony did AMAZING work!!!! I could NOT be happier with my results. I am 6wks post op breast augmentation and I am completely 150% satisfied. I spent 2hrs asking questions in my consultation. He answered every single one of them. The procedure went perfectly and great CRNA and staffing. Great pre/post-op packet given before surgery. Am sooooo pleased with my results!! Couldn't be happier!! Would recommend to everyone, tell everyone about Dr. Colony!!
