How long does laser skin resurfacing take and what is the estimated recovery period?

This procedure can take between 30 minutes to two hours as it really depends the kind of laser skin resurfacing undertaken. The skin can be peeled either superficially or deeply. And there are lasers like ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers and fractional lasers. The lasers can be fraxel, erbium or CO2 lasers and it is crucial that the right laser is used, depending on your skin type and color as very dark people may not be suitable for laser skin resurfacing since dark skin absorbs more of the laser.

For minor laser skin resurfacing, you may feel a tingling sensation. If the peel is going deeper then you may require topical anesthesia. And if you have deep laser skin resurfacing then you may even need general anesthesia. After the procedure your skin may look somewhat sun burnt after mild treatment. After deep reaching treatment you may require bandages and dressings. Depending on how deep the laser skin resurfacing goes, you may require a downtime of two to three days or two weeks. You will also need to follow medical advice regarding care of your skin post the treatment for best results. As the skin heals, it will be smoother and tauter.
