Is There Any Downtime with Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
Whether your face is blemished by wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, or uneven textures, laser skin resurfacing is one of the most attractive treatments available. It can restore the beauty of your face, as well as your confidence levels, in a non-invasive manner while Baltic Beauty Centre completes the procedures to the safest and most professional standards. Still, you’ll have many questions ahead of the treatment, not least in relation to potential downtime.
About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation treatment designed primarily to treat the face. It can reduce the visible signs of various blemishes while it is also a great option for managing hyperpigmentation. Through one of the Baltic Beauty Centre’s licensed aestheticians, the laser-based processes can leave you with the smooth and young-looking skin that you desire.
Skin resurfacing treatments vary greatly in costs, but most transformations cost around $1,000-$1,500 for non-ablative and $2,000-$2,500 for ablative lasers, which use carbon dioxide or erbium. The latter removes the outer layers of the skin to tackle blemishes while the former focuses on pulsed light and does not remove skin layers.
The costs involved cover a full set of treatments. For most patients, that will be three to four appointments, leaving a month in between to enable the skin time to recover.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Downtime
One of the many attractive features of laser skin resurfacing is that the sessions themselves only lasts for between 30 and 60 minutes. Meanwhile, the laser itself only causes a minor irritation that feels similar to having a slight case of sunburn. Most patients find that the process is tolerable without the need for pain relief, although it is available.
Laser skin resurfacing can produce some minor side effects for the treatment area. They include;
However, Baltic Beauty Centre will provide comprehensive pre and post-treatment care plans to ensure that those side effects are minimal. Even when they do occur, a full recovery can be expected in roughly 7-10 days, although it is possible to see a full transformation in as little as three days. However, this process may be repeated after each appointment.
Patients should also adhere to a new cleansing ritual, using a saline solution up to 5 times per day to ensure that you see the full benefits of the laser skin resurfacing treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin surfacing can be used to treat a range of blemishes. In addition to the issues mentioned above, suitable candidates regularly have other visible problems. The list includes crow’s feet, sagging skin, acne scars, warts, and enlarged oil glands. If your quality of life has been affected by the presence of those symptoms, the skin resurfacing procedures are probably a wise move.
It is a particularly attractive prospect for anyone who is worried about undergoing more invasive treatment types, such as surgery. Baltic Beauty Centre’s experienced aestheticians will ensure that the most suitable procedures are chosen to ensure optimal results with the least amount of downtime.
