The Process of Laser Resurfacing

Are you considering booking a laser resurfacing session at Enhanc Clinispa but don't know what you expect? Here is some crucial information that helps you understand what to expect before, during and after fractional laser resurfacing at our Bolton, Manchester clinic.

Before Treatment

  • Before you agree to laser resurfacing, we highly recommend booking a consultation at least a week before receiving treatment.
  • The consultation allows you to meet the practitioner and discuss why you want the treatment.
  • The practitioner will examine your medical history and assess whether laser resurfacing is suitable.
  • If treatment is suitable, you will receive all the information you need to prepare for your appointment.
  • The practitioner will determine the best-suited techniques and products and may offer tips or special creams to help you prepare.
  • You are often advised to avoid heavy sun exposure and specific medication or supplements in the days and weeks before you receive laser resurfacing.
  • You will do a patch test several days before the appointment to test your skin's reaction, identify any allergy concerns and provide a sample of the sensation you will experience.

During Treatment

  • On the day of your treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and you will be provided with protective eyewear.
  • Fractional laser resurfacing usually only creates minimal discomfort, and no anaesthetic may be required.
  • The procedure can take between 10 to 40 minutes while the practitioner moves the laser device over the treated area.
  • Once treatment is completed, the area will be cooled.
  • You may need repeat sessions, as much as three, to enjoy the full effects.

After Treatment

  • After you have been treated, the practitioner will provide all the advice you need on how best to care for your skin afterwards. They will also offer tips and lifestyle changes you can make to prolong the results, maximising your laser resurfacing treatment.
  • For instance, you might be advised to avoid makeup for several days and apply sun protection even in poor weather conditions.
  • You will likely experience a sunburnt sensation that should clear within several hours.
  • Minor side effects include skin redness and swelling. These side effects should disappear within a few days. If you have any concerns, you can contact the clinic anytime.
  • You should recover from laser resurfacing within 1-2 days.

Frequently Asked Questions on Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Will I need a consultation?

We recommend that you visit our clinic before undergoing treatment for a consultation, ideally a week beforehand. The consultation allows us to collect information about your medical history and confirm your suitability for the procedure. Before receiving treatment, you will also be asked to complete a consent form and do a patch test to assess your skin's reaction and allow you to get a taste of the treatment sensation.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people will be able to undergo fractional laser resurfacing to experience a brighter skin tone, smoother skin, reduced wrinkles, and more. We will assess your suitability for the procedure during your consultation.

How does laser resurfacing work?

This award-winning treatment targets sections of the skin to stimulate collagen renewal. The surrounding areas of the skin help the body to recover naturally, ensuring incredible results without a long recovery time. The new collagen cells will replace the old cells, reducing the appearance of scars and other unwanted skin blemishes.

Are there any side effects?

Laser skin resurfacing side effects are rare, but they can occur as with any treatment. One side effect you may encounter is a superficial blister that usually heals within a week or two. You might also experience darkening or lightening of the treated area, which is a temporary side effect that fades over the following months.

How is the treatment carried out?

During treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and the device's handpiece will be moved over the treated area, delivering tiny microscopic laser beams.

How long will treatment take?

This treatment will usually last between 10 to 40 minutes, but this can vary based on your skin condition and the treated area. You must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. Afterwards, your skin will need to be cooled.

What should I expect after treatment?

Immediately after laser skin resurfacing, you may experience a mild sunburnt sensation for several hours. Your skin might appear red for 1-2 days, a positive sign that the skin is healing from within. Minimal swelling will usually occur, and this typically disappears after two to three days. Your skin might appear bronzed for three to ten days after treatment. During recovery, your skin will naturally exfoliate and might flake as if you've suffered mild sunburn.

Can I wear makeup and go in the sun?

We advise you to avoid wearing makeup for a few days after treatment and to avoid prolonged sun exposure. You should apply sun protection (minimum SPF 50) daily, regardless of the weather.

Can I prolong my results?

Fractional laser resurfacing is an excellent procedure for creating glowing and youthful skin but does not deliver permanent results. You can alter your lifestyle choices to prolong the results of treatment. For example, we advise reducing sun exposure, applying a high SPF, avoiding smoking, and undergoing at least one maintenance session each year.
