Are you a good candidate for Laser Resurfacing treatment?
If you wish to treat the signs of aging on your face and body or have shallow scars from acne or experiencing a non-responsive skin after a facelift, then you are a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing treatment.
Laser Resurfacing treatments:
Co2 Laser Resurfacing
Co2 Laser Resurfacing uses very short pulsed light energy or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of the skin with minimal heat damage. This method works well for wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose or other such conditions. In this procedure, recovery takes up to 2 weeks.
Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Erbium Laser Resurfacing is designed to remove surface-level deep lines and wrinkles on your face, hands, neck, and chest. The main benefit of this procedure is that it causes minimal burning of the surrounding tissue. The laser cause few side effects such as swelling and redness which goes away with time. The recovery is faster than Co2 Laser Resurfacing. And, the method is highly recommended for people with dark skin tone.
Laser Resurfacing is an outpatient treatment. If the doctor is treating small parts of your face, then the procedure will take 30-45 minutes only and there will be no overnight stay. A full-face treatment takes at least 2 hours.
The laser stimulates collagen growth and retracts dermis and epidermis to tighten the skin. It treats loss of skin tone and improves the complexion of sun damaged skin.
Complications of Laser Skin Resurfacing:
Laser surfacing treatments are intended to improve the appearance of the skin. These treatments cannot produce perfect skin.
There are some potential risks involved too:
1. Burns or other injuries
3. Changes in skin’s pigmentation including areas of darker or lighter skin.
4. Reactivation of herpes and cold sores.
5. Bacterial infection
