How much downtime is associated with fractionated laser resurfacing?

Depending on the type of laser and how aggressive the treatment is, it can vary from no downtime to about a week. Typically a more dramatic result is achieved if more downtime is accepted. Traditional laser resurfacing may achieve the most dramatic results but is associated with a longer downtime than fractionated lasers. Some individuals may notice some residual pink skin after laser resurfacing that can last a few weeks but that is easily concealed with makeup.

If you have questions or would like to book a consultation with one of the surgeons at West County Plastic Surgery, please call (314) 996-8800.
