Before scheduling your laser skin treatment, review the information below to better understand how long the healing and recovery process may take and when you’ll be able to return to work and other activities.
What is a hybrid laser treatment?
Hybrid laser treatments are highly advanced methods designed to improve the tone, texture, and overall appearance of the skin with a combination of both ablative and non-ablative laser energies. This unique approach allows each treatment to be fully customized to match the patient’s skin type, concerns, and goals. Hybrid laser treatments can vary in strength, and the laser can be calibrated to reach precise depths beneath the skin’s surface for targeted, optimal treatment.
What is hybrid laser treatment used for?
Because the Alma hybrid laser combines ablative and non-ablative technologies, it can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including those related to age, sun damage, and other factors. One of the most popular hybrid laser treatments in San Jose, CA is hybrid laser skin resurfacing with the Alma HyGrid system. With hybrid laser resurfacing, patients can reduce the visibility of the following common skin complaints:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark spots
- Enlarged pores
- Scaly skin
- Rough skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Dull skin
Will hybrid skin resurfacing tighten loose skin?
During laser skin resurfacing with a hybrid laser, targeted energy is delivered to multiple layers of the skin, including deeper tissues beneath the surface. This acts to stimulate the body’s production of collagen, which can lead to visibly firmer and more youthful-looking skin over time.
Will I need to take off work after hybrid laser treatments?
The healing process after a hybrid laser skin treatment is relatively short, with most patients healed and recovered after about 5 – 7 days. During this time, it is important to refrain from picking at your peeling skin. Sun exposure should also be avoided. Many patients are able to return to office work or remote work well within a week, though the full recovery period will depend on the strength of the treatment performed and other individual factors. During your pre-treatment consultation, Dr. Chakerian will discuss what you can expect after your hybrid skin treatment.
Can laser skin resurfacing be used on darker skin tones?
