Laser Skin Resurfacing
As your skin becomes damaged by the sun and aging, your complexion turns dull and wrinkles begin to form. Lotions and serums claim to offer some relief—but the results are usually short-lived. If you want a long-term solution to uneven skin tone, laser skin resurfacing can help. Dr. Eric Wright and his Little Rock, AR, staff help countless men and women freshen their faces and create smooth, more youthful-looking skin.

What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical procedure that uses beams of light to remove dead skin cells. When used on the face, it addresses common issues such as wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. This innovative technology is extremely precise and is suitable for even the most delicate areas. A few minor flaws that laser resurfacing can treat include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Sun spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
Laser skin resurfacing is very effective for diminishing mild, shallow wrinkles. Men and women with deeper wrinkles and lax skin, however, will enjoy more dramatic rejuvenation with facelift surgery.

Am I a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Laser treatments can help patients improve their skin in many different ways. If you struggle with wrinkles, discoloration, or uneven skin tone, laser skin resurfacing can help. Ideal candidates are those who have:
- A lighter skin tone
- Problem spots near the skin’s surface
- Minimal skin sagging
If you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters, treatment may increase the chance of a breakout. Those on acne medications such as Accutane should also refrain from treatment.

What happens during a laser skin resurfacing treatment?
Laser skin resurfacing uses the power of light to remove dull, dead skin. During treatment, the laser sends a short, concentrated pulse of light at your targeted treatment area. The heat of the laser stimulates new collagen growth while also removing damaged skin layers.
The procedure takes 20 minutes to 1 hour to complete, depending on the number of areas treated. Patients are left with smoother, firmer, clearer skin, and the results typically last up to 1 year.
Is laser skin resurfacing painful?
No, laser skin resurfacing isn’t a painful treatment. However, there may be a mild amount of temporary discomfort. Some patients compare the sensation of the laser to that of a rubber band snapped against the skin. Your provider will be carefully watching throughout the entire process to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
How long does it take to recover from laser skin resurfacing?
As a nonsurgical procedure, laser skin resurfacing doesn’t require a significant amount of downtime. The skin may be red and sensitive afterward, but you can still go to work and follow your regular schedule. Avoid activities such as swimming or exercise until your skin has completely healed. This caution prevents infection and ensures that your results heal as attractively as possible.
