Before the Procedure

Choose Inspire Medical Spa for cutting-edge technology, and personalized care that guarantees exceptional results.

Discuss Goals:

Clarify your expectations and let the doctor assess your skin type and history.


Avoid Sun Exposure:

Use high-SPF sunscreen in the weeks prior.

Skincare Regimen:

Follow any pre-treatment skincare recommendations.

Medication Review:

Discuss all current medications with your doctor.

During the Procedure

Before the Procedure:

Cleanse the Skin:

Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove oils, dirt, and makeup


Depending on the extent of the treatment, you might receive local anesthesia, sedation, or a combination of both to ensure comfort during the procedure.

During the Procedure:

Laser Application:

Inspire Medical Spa Professionals will use a laser to treat targeted skin areas, which can take 30 minutes to two hours. The type of laser and settings used will depend on your skin type and the issues being treated.


Your skin will be soothed with a cooling gel or ointment to minimize discomfort. You might also receive bandages to protect treated areas.

After the Procedure

Recovery Timeline:

First 24-48 Hours:

Expect redness, swelling, and a sunburn-like sensation.

First Week:

Peeling and flaking as new skin forms.Keep the skin moisturized and follow our instructions for cleaning and applying ointments.

1-2 Weeks:

Redness will gradually fade, and new skin will continue to emerge.

Care Tips:

Sun Protection:

Avoid direct sunlight and use high-SPF sunscreen. Direct sun exposure can lead to hyperpigmentation and damage the new skin.


Use gentle, non-irritating skincare products as recommended by your doctor. Avoid exfoliants and products with harsh chemicals until your skin fully heals.


Keep your skin hydrated and maintain a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to support healing.


Attend all follow-up appointments to monitor your skin’s progress and address any concerns. We might recommend additional treatments or touch-ups to achieve optimal results.

To wrap things up

A laser skin resurfacing procedure offers significant improvements in skin appearance with proper preparation and care. By following our advice and being patient with the healing process, you will achieve the best results.
