Am I A Good Candidate?
There are many factors to consider when deciding which method of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for your needs. Laser skin resurfacing is geared toward anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you see sun damage, acne scars, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, redness, or pigmentation issues, this treatment may be helpful to address these imperfections. Also, it works effectively for those who have rough texture, scaly patches, or other skin surface problems. This treatment is not recommended for anyone who has very dark skin tones or active acne. Additionally, it is important to know that there is a recovery period associated with these laser therapy. Some patients, based on their skin condition, may require up to 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
What to Expect During Laser Skin Resurfacing
Patients of all ages suffer from pitted skin, acne scars, and unwelcome lines. To fix these imperfections, our team of experienced specialists performs laser skin resurfacing with the Alma Hybrid, which is a customizable cosmetic procedure that employs non-ablative and CO2 ablative laser energy. By pairing both the CO2 and 1570nm devices in one applicator, these laser skin resurfacing procedures are beneficial in reducing wrinkles, scarring, and a bumpy complexion. This innovative technology can personalize numerous variables, such as the intensity of the laser's penetration. Treatments typically take up to 45 minutes and only need to be given 1 – 2 times to acquire the best results.
What to Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing
Following lighter resurfacing sessions, a healing ointment will be smoothed over the treated skin, and you can go home to recover. The skin will look red, and there will be some swelling and irritation. This should subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day period. For those who are getting a deeper laser treatment, your recovery time will last longer. The treated areas will most likely be protected with dressings, and the swelling, burning, and irritation side effects will be more intense. Pain medication can be prescribed to help reduce these side effects. The recovery time for a more intense laser procedure can last 2 – 3 weeks. All patients should reduce their UV exposure after their resurfacing appointment and use sun protection frequently. For all intensities, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is vital to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to keep it from scarring and to shield the treated area from environmental exposure. Once the peeling is completed, the treated skin will feel softer while looking younger, clearer, and rejuvenated.
The Plastics Clinic Reviews
Best surgeon! Best staff! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
First thing I want to share is if your end goal is to have a tummy tuck- don’t touch your body until that time! Long story short, prior to seeing Dr. Garlick I had laser liposuction aka smart lipo. I followed all of the after care but still had severe scar tissue which made my tummy tuck feasible but different. I consulted with 4 other plastic surgeons before seeing Dr. Garlick and I always felt like they were telling my what I wanted to hear vs being honest, up front and giving me realistic expectations. I left all 4 feeling kind of off- I knew Dr. Garlick’s books were filling up but I had a tug to call to get one more consult ( 5 should be enough, right?) in the mean time I had actually paid (refundable fortunately) and scheduled a surgery date with another surgeon. My plan was if I heard the same the thing I would continue with this other surgeon. Call it divine intervention or luck I got a call that Dr. G had a consult cancellation- it was almost 3 months prior to my scheduled consult. The consult was exactly what I was looking for, compassionate, inquisitive, understanding and realistic. I am a mom of two, I like(d) my body I just wanted to enhance it. He understood that and also explained what was going to need to happen in a way that made sense. He also didn’t make me feel bad or dumb for having my prior procedure (you don’t know what you don’t know), that was huge for me. I was able to snag one of his last available dates for the year, I’m writing this almost a week post op and when I didn’t think it couldn’t get better it really did, one my nurses Hope, she was so straightforward and funny. I loved her dryness, honesty, and let’s get this done attitude. Dr. Garlick’s bedside manner is like none I have ever experienced. Not only is he personable, everything we talked about in my consult is exactly the same thing we went over before I headed into the OR- he never wavered. He talked my husband through aftercare gave dinner spot recommendations. He called to check on both of us after my surgery and has answered my text messages throughout this first week of recovery, which has been huge because I live out of state. He has treated me like I am his only patient this week-he embodies the saying “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”Plastic surgery is personal, it’s emotional and can be exhausting, I am thankful that I was able to have this experience with Dr. Garlick and his team and I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
I’m so glad I did my research and went with Dr. Garlick for my breast lift & augmentation. My results were far better than I could have ever imagined. I received excellent symmetry, a healthy recovery and zero complications. Dr. Garlick has a great bedside manner and was always a quick call or message away to answer all my questions no matter the time. If you value your results and want the very best I highly recommend getting on his consultation list. He’s most definitely worth the wait!
I came to Dr. Garlick for a mommy makeover. (Breast aug, tummy tuck and lipo in legs and flanks). On my consult, I had my times wrong and arrived 30 mins late. Everyone was so kind and I still got to see him that day. He has been amazing at answering all my questions and my results are simply amazing. I would definitely recommend this doctor.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How can I help my skin recuperate following a skin resurfacing session?
A laser technician on our talented team will discuss how you can accelerate your complexion's healing following a laser procedure. The first piece of advice is not to scratch your skin. This can cause damage, including scarring. You should pause all forms of hair removal on the affected tissue. This will include shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. Our South Jordan, UT team may also give you an ointment to help soothe and promote healing in the treated regions.
How is laser skin resurfacing with the Hybrid by Alma performed?
During your cosmetic treatment, you will rest back in our private treatment room as the laser handpiece is guided over your skin, effectively addressing the outer layers for enhancement. Both the ablative and non-ablative laser energy is applied within the same pulse onto the skin. This provides shorter procedure times at our office and lessens the risks of overtreating the regions. Once your treatment has concluded, our team at The Plastics Clinic will provide all of the necessary post-procedure instructions to ensure you attain your desired outcomes.
How frequently should I receive laser resurfacing treatments?
A customized treatment plan will be carefully crafted for you based on your various goals and concerns. While at your consultation, our skilled technicians will review how many treatments may be required for your needs, as well as how often you should have laser skin resurfacing done.
