The laser treatments available at Kessel Dermatology are safe for most skin types. However, your provider does a skin test before moving forward with treatment.

What can I expect during laser treatments?

Your provider at Kessel Dermatology customizes your laser treatment care plan based on your skin issues and goals. They review the details of your laser treatments at your consultation so that you know what to expect. 

Most laser treatments at Kessel Dermatology are performed without anesthesia because they cause very little discomfort. After cleaning your skin with an antiseptic agent, your provider applies and activates the laser tool. You may feel a snapping or warming sensation. 

Your treatment time varies and may take a few minutes or an hour, depending on the area size and reason for your laser session. 

What happens after laser treatments?

Laser treatments at Kessel Dermatology may cause slight skin redness and swelling after your session. These side effects usually resolve within a week. Your provider gives you specific instructions on protecting your skin after your laser treatment to support healing and prevent sun damage.

You may notice improvements in your skin after your first laser treatment session. However, your skin expert at Kessel Dermatology may recommend a series of treatments to get the best results.
