How long after a laser skin resurfacing procedure will I be free of any visible side effects?

It depends. If you have severe facial lines, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin, you would benefit from a more intense laser resurfacing which may result a social downtime of approximately 7-10 days and some redness to the skin lasting approximately 6 weeks after the procedure; this redness is well hidden with makeup after that 7-10 day period. If the lines/wrinkles/sun-damage is not severe and/or you are looking for a shorter social downtime, we can perform a less intense treatment, resulting in a much shorter social downtime period.
