How Invasive are Laser Skin Treatments?

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

One of the questions we are most frequently asked is how long recovery from a procedure will take. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic we specialize in providing patients with treatments that require no downtime. That means you can return to your regular activities within hours of treatment, often immediately.

Laser skin resurfacing is popular for many reasons. It can reduce the appearance of:

Patients who undergo laser skin treatments often receive compliments on their appearance and are asked if they have “had work done” or been on vacation recently. The benefits are visible not only to yourself, but to those around you, and are sometimes even comparable to surgical treatments.

But second to the visible improvement to your appearance, you may find that the biggest benefit is the lack of disruption to your lifestyle. Laser treatments like ActiveFXFraxel re:store Dual with Thulium and Thermage allow you to experience a marked improvement to your appearance and return to your daily activities immediately. Most patients do not experience prolonged discomfort, even those who experience the most dramatic results.

After you have undergone your laser skin treatment, you may be instructed to stay out of the sun for 48 hours or rest for the remainder of the day. Adverse reactions are extremely uncommon and most patients are so pleased with the results that they return for additional treatments to other areas of the body.

If you would like to discuss the effects of any laser skin treatment with a doctor, please contact Dr. Mani at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic today. We offer the most effective skin treatments available with no downtime to patients throughout the La Jolla area of California.
