What Are Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation Treatments?
There are numerous methods of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing in Nashville. To improve the appearance of wrinkles, texture and fine lines on the face, Dr. MaDan may recommend a combination of injectable products, chemical peels, dermabrasion, microneedling, or resurfacing techniques depending on your specific goals.
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular outpatient procedure to address specific skin concerns by the precise removal of skin, layer by layer, using a laser. The light energy delivered by the laser is absorbed by the skin. The heat energy causes destruction of the targeted tissues. This ablative laser treatment is more invasive and has longer down time (discomfort, swelling, drainage). A non-ablative laser treatment is less invasive. It targets the deeper tissues to stimulate collagen growth. There is less downtime and post-treatment maintenance with a non-ablative laser treatment.
Other methods for skin resurfacing include chemical peels and dermabrasion. What remains is new skin cells that give you younger-looking and glowing skin. Dr. MaDan will either treat the entire face or certain sections—such as on the forehead or under the eyes—depending on your specific goals or target areas. Small areas only require local anesthesia, while treatment for the entire face calls for general anesthesia.
Ablative laser skin resurfacing can be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures. After the procedure, Dr. MaDan bandages the treated area. Discomfort, swelling and drainage from the treated tissues is normal. Complete healing usually takes up to 21 days.
Skin rejuvenation or “prejuvenation” procedures are usually quick and non-invasive. Most patients can return to work and daily activities immediate after the treatment. It is always recommended to use sunblock and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. Types of rejuvenation treatments include injectables and chemical peels.

Am I a Good Candidate for these Treatments?
As with any other medical procedure, the first step is to consult with a knowledgeable and experienced surgeon, like Dr. MaDan, to evaluate your eligibility. Not everyone is a candidate for resurfacing.
For example, someone with a history of keloid scarring would not be a candidate for skin resurfacing. Additionally, if you regularly take medications that could affect clotting, such as ibuprofen and aspirin, Dr. MaDan may request you to stop using them for about two weeks before the procedure.
