About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing with Cutera XEO truPulse laser at Hebe Medical Spa is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to remove damaged skin cells layer by layer. The procedure is performed for reducing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing skin irregularities, such as pigmentation, acne scars, and other flaws. Sometimes referred to as a laser peel, this procedure is considered an effective treatment for people who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Based on the needs of the patient's skin, the treatment can be customized for the best results. There is little recovery time associated with most laser skin resurfacing treatments. Any questions or concerns may be reviewed with Newburgh, NY cosmetic professional Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf during your initial consultation.
Cutera XEO truPulse is the first long-pulse laser that delivers consistent energy via pulse duration (a specific measurement of frequency). The truPulse also enables us to treat a wide range of cosmetic issues, such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more. We utilize Cutera products because of their proven results and safety.
- Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
Non-ablative laser treatments create micro-injuries to the skin cells to promote natural healing. Non-ablative treatments are best for removing wrinkles and fine lines on those who are willing to wait a few months to see strong results.
"I have been going to Zainab Mosul-Ashraf at Hebe for about six months. As a 62 year old woman who does not want to have plastic surgery, I found Hebe Medical Spa to be the perfect solution. I had wrinkles and jowls on my face - as anyone would at my age. Dr. Z used fillers to address those trouble areas. After a few filler sessions, my face looks amazing. No one believes me when I tell them my age. I have no wrinkles! I can not recommend Dr. Z and her partner Irina highly enough. They are professional, thorough and great at what they do! No surgery for me."- D.S. / Office Visit / Dec 03, 2018
"I recently had a series of Micro needling with Zainab & Irina from Hebe Medical Spa. I can honestly say my skin has never looked better. Pores are diminished, wrinkles smoothed and all with little to no discomfort or down time. Friendly and professional. Overall a lovely experience."- L. / Office Visit / Dec 19, 2018
Laser skin resurfacing is geared toward patients who are unsatisfied with their overall complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness issues, this procedure may help correct these imperfections. Also, it is wonderful if you have rough texture, scaly patches, or other skin surface problems. A laser peel isn't suggested for anyone who has very dark skin tones or active acne outbreaks. In addition, it's important to understand that there is a recovery period needed after laser therapy. Certain patients, based on their skin condition, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks to recover.
Medication may be given prior to the procedure to help reduce any pain so you can relax throughout your appointment. If your complexion only needs mild improvement, a local anesthesia may be applied to numb treated areas of the face. Throughout the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over your skin, directly targeting the designated areas for improvement. During your treatment, you may feel heat from the laser as it is designed to destroy damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth.
What to Expect
After your treatment, an ointment will be smoothed over the treated skin and you can go home for your recovery. The treated skin may look pink, and there may be some swelling and irritation. These symptoms subside in a few days and the skin's natural peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day period. It's important to avoid peeling or pulling off the skin yourself as this can cause scarring. In addition, you should limit your UV exposure following your treatment and use sun protection regularly. After the peeling is finished, the treated skin should feel smoother while also appearing rejuvenated, clearer, and younger.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
Your laser skin resurfacing cost will vary on the number of treatments you need. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zainab will listen to your concerns and wants before developing your unique treatment plan. Hebe Medical Spa regularly offers skin treatment specials and discounted packages so be sure to ask in your appointment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Dr. Zainab or someone on her staff team will give you recommendations on ways to speed skin healing following your laser resurfacing treatment. The most important rule is to not peel or pick flaking skin. Doing this can cause long-term damage, like scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which includes waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can suggest cream to help soothe treated areas.
Should I get laser skin resurfacing or IPL?
Once she has listened to your skin concerns, Dr. Zainab will help you choose whether laser skin resurfacing or an IPL is best for you. Although both rejuvenate your skin, each has its own unique benefits. In your initial consultation, Dr. Zainab will explain each choice and make a suggestion for your treatment plan.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on your specific treatment plan and skin condition, you might need to wait weeks or even a few months between treatments. You should tell Dr. Zainab about how frequently you want to return for appointments so she can consider this when recommending a treatment plan in your initial consultation.
