Is it painful?
The pain varies depending on the depth of skin to be removed. More dramatic results require deeper skin resurfacing, which may result in more discomfort. Everything will be done to minimize pain during and after any procedure.
Where is the procedure done?
Most chemical peels and laser treatments can be done in the office. More extensive procedures such as a CO2 laser resurfacing or very deep chemical peel may be done in a same day surgery environment for your comfort.
How long do the procedures take?
It depends on the type and depth of treatment you receive. It may take anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
Are there lunchtime skin procedures that will give me good results?
Yes, there are procedures that can be done quickly in the office that will allow you to return to work immediately. However, these are less invasive procedures such as superficial chemical peels which do not cause much redness or downtime. They will improve skin texture and appearance, but are not typically enough to improve wrinkles.
