Laser Skin Resurfacing in Nashville, TN
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Plastic Surgery Affiliates is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses CO2 laser technology to safely remove the outer layers of skin that cause uneven skin tone and texture. The CO2 laser used by Dr. MaDan is an ablative laser. It removes the uppermost layers of skin to trigger the body’s natural healing processes, boosting the body’s production of collagen and youthful appearing skin. CO2 laser skin resurfacing helps smooth away concerns including acne scarring, sunspots, fine lines and uneven skin texture.

How is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is performed by Dr. MaDan under IV sedation with local anesthetic in the surgery center. Before your laser skin resurfacing treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. Once numb, a local anesthetic can be used as well as IV sedation if needed. Quick bursts of CO2 laser are evenly applied to the skin. The entire procedure process typically takes no more than 30 minutes to complete.
What is the Recovery Time for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Because CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive treatment, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with treatment. Patients are able to return back to their normal daily activities, including work, almost immediately following treatment. Redness, swelling, and sensitivity to sun and heat are common, and typically subside within a few days of treatment. Peeling or sloughing of the skin will also occur over the next week or two revealing healthy new skin.
