How Skin Lasers Work
There are a few differences between the two treatments. Ablative lasers vaporize the top layer of the damaged skin, whereas non-ablative lasers penetrate the surface and ensure that the top layer of skin won’t sustain further damage during the procedure. There isn’t any real patient downtime connected with non-ablative laser surgery.
The standard type of laser treatment is the ablative laser treatment. Dr. Nguyen only employs a portion of Carbon Dioxide and it is used for resurfacing. The ablative laser treatment is often referred to as CO2 Laser. With laser facial rejuvenation, only a fraction of the CO2 laser is needed for the procedure. This specific laser wavelength focuses on water molecules which penetrate deep within the skin and stimulate collagen production.
CO2 laser resurfacing can eliminate fine line and wrinkles. It can also reduce the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, while improving the overall texture, color, and tone of the skin at the same time. This type of treatment is usually done in a series of three sessions which is administered every month to achieve optimum results. With this type of laser procedure you can expect 3-5 days of downtime, and the recovery process lasts for about a week. Patients who underwent laser treatment can experience some mild to moderate swelling. Some have reported the feeling of discomfort during the treatment, but this can easily be resolved with the use of a topical cream numbing agent which is applied directly to the skin. Pain relievers can also be taken by the patient if needed.

What are Dr. Nguyen’s Patients Saying?
We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one, and the result should appear natural and balanced.
There are several core philosophical principles that drive our practice. We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one. We feel that results should appear natural and balanced so that a patient looks like the best version of his or herself, not a bizarre approximation of someone else. We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a patient and surgeon share a common objective and when there is consensus regarding aesthetic taste. We encourage a holistic approach to anti-aging because true youthfulness requires a combination of attitude, physical well being, as well as appearance.
While facial plastic surgery is often pursued to restore a youthful appearance, its results are most effective when a patient is vigilant about preserving mind, body, and spirit alike. Last, and perhaps most importantly, we believe that each of our patient’s needs is unique and that their course of treatment should reflect that of uniqueness. We strive to give the utmost in personalized care and service. From your first phone call to our office through your final follow-up visit, you will be given the time and attention needed to help you realize your individual aesthetic goals.
