Facial Q & A

What is a laser facial?

Dr. Chou and her team of medical aestheticians use two advanced laser tools to improve the health and look of your skin. With care and precision, Dr. Chou and the medical aesthetician use pulses of laser light energy to gently remove unwanted areas of skin one layer at a time to reveal the younger, smoother skin underneath.

While the laser removes imperfections from the top layer of your skin, it also gently heats the deeper layers underneath to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its strength, elasticity, and youthful appearance. This heating action helps improve the longevity of laser facial treatment.

Who is a good candidate for a laser facial?

Dr. Chou determines if you’re a good candidate for a laser facial after a consultation. She may recommend the treatment if you have concerns about the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blemishes or acne scars
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged pores

The laser facial is also used to treat rosacea, which is a medical condition that causes redness to the nose and cheeks.

What can I expect during a laser facial?

Dr. Chou reviews the laser treatment with you before you get started so you know what to expect. You may feel a rubber band-like snap as the pulses of energy treat your skin. To ease discomfort, Dr. Chou may apply a local anesthetic before you begin your facial.

Your skin may be a bit sensitive after treatment but requires no downtime. Dr. Chou provides you with instructions on how to care for your skin after treatment to promote healing and get the best results.

Most importantly, you need to protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen, which also helps you maintain your new look. You should also wear a wide-brimmed hat and big sunglasses if you plan on being out in the sun for an extended period of time.

Laser facials are a noninvasive treatment that helps restore your natural beauty. To schedule your facial, call AVEC Eye Center or book an appointment using the online booking tool.
