Many patients are interested in revitalizing their appearance and restoring their youth without undergoing a major cosmetic surgery procedure. For Orange County patients who are interested in their non-surgical cosmetic procedure options, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers the fractional C02 laser resurfacing procedure. This is becoming one of the most talked about non-surgical cosmetic improvement procedures in Newport Beach.
What is the Fractional C02 Laser Resurfacing Procedure?
Dr. Kevin Sadati performs this cosmetic procedure with a state-of-the-art fractional C02 laser tool, which revitalizes a person’s face by using laser technology in order to restore damaged skin. Short, pulsating beams of light are used on the damaged area of the skin, ultimately removing the skin until fresh, new skin is at the surface of the face. Laser resurfacing is especially effective on some of the most sensitive areas of the face, such as the creases of the eyes. Many cosmetic procedures cannot restore skin in these areas because of the sensitivity, but the precise laser tool can safely be used in the most sensitive regions. Laser resurfacing is only performed on the areas of the face that require it, and skin that does not need treatment is left alone in the process.
Who is a Good Candidate for this Procedure?
Like any type of cosmetic procedure, a patient must be in good general health before undergoing laser resurfacing treatments. The best candidates for this procedure also have dark spots or aging spots on their face, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring or hyperpigmentation. Dr. Kevin Sadati will determine whether each individual patient is a qualified candidate at the initial consultation appointment.
What is the Recovery Like after the Procedure is Complete?
As this is a non-surgical procedure, the recovery is generally well tolerated by most patients. The largest inconvenience is the fact that there is some redness, swelling and irritation around the area where the treatment was performed. This will last anywhere from two hours to eight hours. Patients might experience scabbing on their face, which is essential to the healing process. Typically, Dr. Kevin Sadati recommends that patients use a moisturizer in the area where the treatment was performed in order to obtain the best results.
This up-and-coming cosmetic procedure is giving people the opportunity to look the way they did during their glory days again. It’s never been easier for someone living in Orange County, to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from their face while restoring their confidence at the same time.
