Laser Skin Resurfacing A fresh start for your skin

Why should I pursue laser skin resurfacing?

A healthy, glowing complexion is the chief envy of anyone who is frustrated by the unavoidable signs of aging, such as wrinkled, weathered and sun damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a virtually painless, non-surgical treatment that vaporizes damaged outer skin layers to reveal the beautiful, unsullied cells below. Remarkably, laser skin resurfacing also works to re-invigorate the stalled production of collagen, the body's natural protein responsible for skin suppleness and resilience.

A good candidate...

  • suffers from scars, fine lines, blemishes and other skin imperfections
  • desires to roll back the clock on aging and exposure to the elements
  • is healthy, both physically and mentally
  • does not have prior debilitating skin conditions

How is laser skin resurfacing performed?

This procedure may be executed under local anesthesia with sedation, especially when laser resurfacing is applied to the face. You will be conscious, yet you will feel no pain and experience only minor discomfort, if any. Depending on the amount of surface area to be treated, laser skin resurfacing can take anywhere from ten minutes to two hours. If one session is not sufficient to meet your needs, the doctor may break up your treatment into several appointments in order to better control your recovery and downtime.

During treatment, the highly focused laser beams caress the skin in a uniform horizontal pattern, gently wearing away unwanted scar tissue, wrinkles and other blemishes. Laser heat is carefully controlled and regulated by a state-of-the-art hand-piece along with advanced computer monitoring. These checks and balances help to maintain even results across all surfaces, and precise temperatures that protect surrounding tissue, nerve and skin. Settings are chosen by the doctor, according to the depth of the skin damage. After treatment, Dr. Lahijani will apply protective ointments to help facilitate optimal healing. If bandages are required, you will only need to wear them for the first week after the procedure.

How do I know I'm choosing the best doctor for my laser resurfacing treatment?

Although many practitioners market themselves as laser specialists, working with a board certified surgeon such as Dr. Lahijani ensures a much higher level of safety and more precise, long-lasting results. In addition, it's important that your procedure is performed at an accredited surgical facility where you can be carefully monitored for any adverse allergic reactions and/or complications. Dr. Lahijani performs all treatments at his AAAASF-accredited ambulatory outpatient center, located conveniently at our offices in Beverly Hills.

How can I begin the process?

Laser skin resurfacing will require an initial consultation with Dr. Lahijani. You will meet for a complimentary session at one of his Los Angeles offices in Beverly Hills, Palmdale or Valencia, according to which location is most convenient to you. Your no-cost consultation is the time to express any fears or concerns you may have about undergoing laser treatment; it is also a chance for Dr. Lahijani to get to know you better. He will examine your previous surgeries, your medical history, and any medications you happen to be taking at the time. He may also require you to undergo testing if you have suffered from any skin disorders in the past. After your examination, Dr. Lahijani will be able to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan to meet your goals and lifestyle needs.

Recovery

It's extremely important to follow Dr. Lahijani's aftercare plan, as deviation can result in magnified scarring, pigment irregularities or infection. The doctor will closely monitor your recovery, scheduling regular follow up visits to make sure you are on the right track. Healing from laser skin resurfacing is a gradual process and usually takes between 2 and 4 weeks.

How long will my results last?

If you are diligent about applying sunblock and keeping out of the sun's damaging rays, your laser skin resurfacing results may continue to please for as long as 5 years after treatment. Touch up sessions can also help to prolong your results.

Schedule a Consultation

With four convenient office suites to choose from in Beverly Hills, Palmdale, Upland and Valencia, clients seeking rejuvenation can find the perfect location to suit their busy lifestyle. During your consultation, Dr. Lahijani will examine you, take down your medical history, review before and after photos, and create a personalized treatment plan customized to your body. If you are looking for a full body contouring makeover, the doctor can also give you information about additional procedures at this time, as one major benefit of combining treatments is less overall downtime for the patient.
