How long will my laser skin resurfacing results last?
Because of the persistence of skin pinkness following deeper laser skin resurfacing treatments, it may take months before you can fully appreciate your new look. Most patients feel that the results are worth waiting for and, in the case of deeper treatments, the benefits are relatively long-lasting.
Your skin will continue to age, and wrinkles will eventually reappear. Some wrinkles may recur sooner than others, depending on their location and the type and extent of your resurfacing treatment. You may need to repeat superficial skin resurfacing treatments more periodically to maintain your results.
While results are individual to each patient, laser skin resurfacing before and after photos can help you assess what a successful chemical peel will look like.
What do I need to consider after my laser skin resurfacing?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes. If you notice changes over time, you can schedule additional laser skin resurfacing treatments to maintain your results. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
