The Vein & Laser Institute proudly offers laser skin resurfacing to clients throughout Illinois. This treatment is an excellent way to reduce or eliminate acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, and other blemishes. Before you schedule this procedure with Dr. Barakat, Dr. Alkadri, or Dr. Mishra, consider that fall and winter are the best time of year for laser work because you naturally spend less time in the sun, which helps the treatment heal faster and results last longer.
Most patients describe the discomfort of laser skin resurfacing as similar to the sting of a rubber band. It typically doesn’t require anesthesia, but you may require it for some more advanced treatments. The procedure is appropriate for all skin tones. Please inform our Vein & Laser Institute team of all medications you take to ensure that nothing interferes with your results.
Dr. Barakat, Dr. Alkadri, and Dr. Mishra use different types of lasers depending on your skin type and treatment goals. We will discuss what to expect during your consultation, including the number of sessions recommended, and anticipated downtime. You’re going to love the skin you’re in!
