HOW IT WORKS:

Consultation and Planning:

When you come to a consultation at ROXY Plastic Surgery, Dr. Grawe will examine you and determine if you are a good candidate for the laser treatment of your brown spots (freckles, melasma, and age spots).  Many patients choose to have their face, chest, and hands treated but you can treat almost any area of concern.  Dr. Grawe may counsel you on a home skin regimen that will augment your results.

The Procedure:

On the day of your procedure, you can eat and perform your normal activities.  You will arrive at the office an hour early to have your numbing cream applied.  You can relax in our Spa and have something refreshing to drink. This laser treatment takes about 5-15 minutes.  A cooling cream is then applied to the treated area.  You may reapply your make-up in the office and go back to your regular plans for the day!

Most patients see great results after 1 treatment but dramatic even skin tone and complete resolution of dark spots after a series of three treatments on average.

Recovery

There is no down-time for this type of laser treatment.  You may look a bit flushed directly after the procedure for 15-20 minutes.  There are no activity restrictions after your procedure.  You may apply your make-up after your procedure is finished.  You may use your normal skin care routine the day of your laser treatment.

Remember that everyone is different.  Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone.  The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this procedure.  The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after a procedure.
