What happens during laser skin resurfacing?

The UltraPulse uses fractional laser technology to effectively resurface the skin with fewer risks and less downtime than traditional CO2 lasers.

The laser resurfacing procedure: 

  • Anaesthesia for the treatment will depend on the energy and handpieces used for treatment. If needed, it will be applied for 30 minutes pre-procedure.
  • The treatment will take approximately 30 minutes.
  • Goggles will be provided to the patient and laser practitioner to protect eyes from the laser light.
  • The treated areas will be given a cooling gel immediately after treatment to reduce patient discomfort.

Recovery from laser skin resurfacing: 

  • Full recovery takes approximately 4-14 days depending on the energy level used in treatment.
  • Swelling of the eyes/face may occur for a few days, sleeping a little more upright can help to reduce this.
  • Scabbing, peeling and flaking may occur for a week.
  • Antiviral medications or antibiotics may be prescribed.
  • The skin can appear red after treatment. This usually subsides within four weeks.
