frequently asked questions
How do I know if I am a candidate for laser resurfacing?
If you have significant sun damage and dark spots you'd like to repair and even out, along with reducing the appearance of acne scarring, moderate wrinkles, or you want to rejuvenate your dull skin, laser resurfacing might be a good choice for you. Consider a different treatment for your concerns if you have active acne, you have a heavy tan or very dark skin, or you smoke.
What can I expect during the treatment?
In the weeks leading up to your treatment, we will ask you to avoid sun exposure. On the day of treatment, you will receive a local anesthetic to numb the treated area and may receive sedation if necessary. We will then treat the area with the laser. Total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on your tolerance and the size of the treated area. After the treatment is finished, we will apply a thick ointment to the area and possibly dressing or bandages along with ice to reduce swelling.
How long is the recovery from laser resurfacing?
You should expect to take about a week off work and activities following your treatment while your skin heals. The treated area will be raw, swollen, and blistered and may ooze followed by peeling. You'll have to cleanse your skin several times a day along with moisturizer and regular ice as directed by the AZURI specialists. After a week or two, you'll be able to use makeup to cover up the healing areas and return to daily activities - with constant SPF application, of course.
What areas can be treated?
At AZURI, we treat the face, eyelids, cheeks, and peri-oral areas.
When will I see results?
Once the treated area has peeled and healed, you'll see significant improvement in your skin's tone and texture. Wrinkles are diminished, pesky brown spots are faded, and you can enjoy your gorgeous new face!
How long do results last?
Results last for several years with proper diet, good skincare practices, and religious SPF use!
Are there procedures that produce similar results without the downtime?
Though ablative laser resurfacing is the option that produces the results with the most longevity, there are still other options available! If you don't have significant time to recover, your AZURI specialist can introduce you to our broad band light (BBL) treatments or non-ablative laser resurfacing that will have you back to all your normal activities in no time!
