Laser Skin Resurfacing Overview

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses laser technology to improve the texture and appearance of your skin. The laser creates a controlled injury to the superficial skin layers, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response, resulting in the growth of new, healthy skin cells which promote collagen and elastin within your skin.

What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Address?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing can address a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, and other scars. It is a versatile procedure that can be used on the face and neck as well as the treatment of scars involving other areas of the body.

How Effective Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective treatment that can provide dramatic improvements in the appearance of your skin. The results are long-lasting, and with proper skincare, the benefits can be enjoyed for years to come. It is important to note that results may vary depending on the individual’s skin type, age, and other factors.

How to Prepare Your Skin Prior to Laser Skin Resurfacing?

To obtain the best result, Dr. Honeybrook will recommend a skin preparation regimen to prime your skin in readiness for your laser resurfacing procedure. Dr. Honeybrook also works with skin specialists who will tailor specific treatments for you in preparation for laser skin resurfacing. 

Recovery After Laser Skin Resurfacing

After CO2 laser resurfacing, individuals should expect some downtime to allow for proper healing. Dr. Honeybrook and his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for your skin, what to expect during the healing process, and when to resume your regular activities. It is important to avoid direct sunlight for the first 2 weeks after laser skin resurfacing. 

CO2 Laser Resurfacing in Combination with a Deep Plane Facelift

Dr. Honeybrook trained with some of the leading laser dermatologists and surgeons in the United States including Dr Eric Bernstein and Dr Kevin Duplechain in the United States who is a pioneer of combining a deep plane facelift with full face and neck CO2 laser treatments.

This combination approach can provide individuals with dramatic, long-lasting results, addressing both the underlying facial structure and contour was well as the surface appearance of the skin. 

This is a popular combination procedure for many individuals undergoing a facelift as they will require 2-3 weeks of downtime from their surgical procedure and combining CO2 facial resurfacing with a facelift allows for rejuvenation of the skin whilst adding no additional downtime. 

During a consultation, Dr. Honeybrook will evaluate your skin and recommend the best approach for achieving your desired results.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. These risks will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation. For further information on risks please refer to the patient resources section of the website.
