Toledo laser skin rejuvenation for smoother, younger looking skin.

Laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that transmits intense heat to the skin, removing old layers of skin to expose new, healthier skin cells. It is effective in treating wrinkles, blotchiness, and age spots.

Toledo Laser Skin Resurfacing Anesthesia Requirements

Frequently, local anesthesia alone or combined with intravenous sedation is used. General anesthesia may also be desired.

Length of Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Toledo Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

A laser resurfacing is usually done in our Toledo office by one of our board certified, specially trained plastic surgeons.

Side Effects From Laser Skin Resurfacing

After the initial redness subsides, your skin may be pink for several weeks to several months.

Recovery From Laser Skin Resurfacing

About 7 to 10 days after your skin resurfacing, new skin will have begun to form. Straining, bending, and lifting should be avoided during the period following your procedure. You can return to work within 1 or 2 weeks. Exercise or other strenuous activities may be delayed a few weeks longer.

Our full service Bella Via Skin and Body Therapies Day Spa provides a wide range of post-surgical treatments and comprehensive care for those seeking anti-aging medicine and holistic skin and body care.
