Ablative Skin Resurfacing Procedures in Kansas City
Do you have skin-damaged skin from spending years in the sun or a tanning bed? Now there’s a safe and effective way to improve your skin with the use of ablative skin resurfacing. It works by delivering intense wavelengths of light to your skin, removing the outer layers of damaged or aged skin. Simultaneously, the lasers stimulate your underlying skin, coercing it to produce collagen, which improves wrinkles, and promotes the healthy growth of new, younger-looking skin. If you have sun-damaged or dry, weathered skin, ablative skin resurfacing by Kansas City Wellness Center might be right for you. Call us today to schedule an appointment with our helpful staff, and we’ll discuss your options.
What Can I Treat with Ablative Skin Resurfacing?
Sun damage isn’t the only condition resurfacing treats. While ablative skin resurfacing works effectively to treat these ailments, it cannot remove excess sagging skin or deep wrinkles. For those symptoms, we can happily recommend other treatments in our facility. The expert staff at Kansas City Wellness Center utilizes ablative skin resurfacing to treat the following symptoms:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine and moderate wrinkles
- Liver and age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne and chickenpox scars
Before and After the Procedure
Before your procedure, we’ll walk through every step in detail to make sure we’re all on the same page. We may give you antiviral medication to take before your treatment or instruct you to minimize excessive sun exposure before and after. Additionally, this procedure requires sedation, so you will need a friend or family member to drive you home. You may experience burning, oozing, and drainage for up to two weeks after your laser resurfacing. Most clients take about two to four weeks to fully recover. Your recovery time will depend on the amount of care you put into your skin. After that, new, healthy skin will begin to grow. This procedure also requires several follow-up visits with us to make sure you’re on the right track to recovery and fully enjoying your new healthy skin.
