The way the procedure is performed is that you come into the office. Topical numbing cream and/or a nerve block is performed. The laser is used to treat the face with pulses. Multiple passes or a single pass can be performed depending on the desired results and your ability to have downtime. This laser can be used to perform micro-peels with 2-3 days downtime. There will be a need for multiple micro-peels to be performed. Or the laser can be used to make multiple passes in an aggressive treatment which may result in downtime of 5-7 days. We have incorporate a few modalities into our treatment including PRP which can speed up the healing process. After the laser procedure is completed, we cool you down with icy water. We want to have you as cool as possible before you leave the office. After cooling, PRP is applied topically to the skin and you will leave with the PRP on your face. Immediately after the procedure you may look like you have gotten a sunburn. Some patients look very red and some have a bronzing effect on their skin.
