Laser Skin Resurfacing uses the skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate itself to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and open pores.
Laser skin resurfacing is a form of skin laser treatment performed by a physician or a physician. To put it quite simply, lasers are used with the purpose of improving the appearance and texture of the skin.
How does it Work?
Laser Skin Resurfacing relies on the principle of collagen remodeling. It involves making tiny punctures in the skin using the laser. This leads to new cell regeneration and smoother, tighter and more vibrant skin.
The procedure has the laser targeting the outer layer of skin while also heating the layers of skin below. This is done to promote collagen production. Collagen fibres help in producing smoother and firmer skin.
Possible side effects and risks
As is the case with all cosmetic procedures, laser skin resurfacing does pose a few inherent side effects. Some of them are burning, bumps, rash, swelling, infection, hyperpigmentation, scars and redness. Following the doctor’s pre-care and post-care instructions do certainly help in reducing the risk of these complications arising. Also, based on a person’s medical history, they may be prescribed a precautionary antibiotic or some antiviral medication. Laser skin resurfacing acne scars are also a risk.
Period after procedure
Generally, for such a procedure, time is an important factor. Normal skin treatment procedures take 3-10 days to heal but the bigger the treatment area, the longer the recovery time. Sometimes, the healing period can take up to three weeks to complete. It is recommended to use ice packs on the treated area to reduce any swelling or rise of slight peeling.
Also, a patient would need to adjust their daily skin care routine in accordance with the procedure. It is recommended to treat the area two to five times per day, using a vinegar-based or saline solution. Using a moisturiser daily does help in the healing process. Get the correct information from the doctor about which solution works best for your individual skin.
Also, it is important to apply new dressings to ensure the skin stays clean.
What to expect from the results
Non-ablative laser treatments don’t have a great risk of side effects but require multiple treatments to produce the desired results. Conversely, Ablative lasers provide results in one treatment but have a greater risk of side effects.
Individual results do vary based on the extent of initial laser resurfacing treatment. The effects are better than those achieved through nonsurgical skin tightening. The results seen will last for several years following successful treatment. Remember though, the results are not permanent and a patient may need to repeat the procedure at some point.
