About Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing removes several layers of skin with a precision laser. The new skin cells that form give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface.

Laser skin resurfacing is sought after by patients who want to reduce the appearance of scarring, wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin, or damaged skin. It can improve the skin's complexion.

Before Laser Skin Resurfacing abroad

Patients will have a consultation with the doctor who will review the patients medical history and discuss the patient's goals.

Before the treatment, patients will be advised to refrain from taking certain medications such as aspirin, as it can inhibit blood clotting, and smokers should stop for the 2 weeks before the procedure.

Patients should avoid getting sunburnt before the treatment, as the skin can become more sensitive to the laser.

Depending on the the size or area of treatment, patients may wish to book several days off work as the face is often red and inflamed for several days afterwards.

How is it performed

The doctor will clean the area being treated and will administer a local anesthetic. There are 2 different types of laser which can be used, an ablative laser or a non-ablative laser.

An ablative laser wounds the skin by applying light energy to the skin, which remove the top layers. As the outer layers of skin are destroyed, the skin will appear red and may bleed slightly. Once the wounds heal, new skin will grow back and will be smoother.

A non-ablative laser does not wound the skin and is less invasive. Light energy is applied to the skin to damage the collagen, this then promotes the growth of new collagen which will tighten the skin.

Anesthesia

Usually local anesthetic with sedation, or general anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Laser Skin Resurfacing takes 30 to 90 minutes.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
The laser removes the upper layer of the skin, which then grows back smoother once the skin has healed.

What to expect after Laser Skin Resurfacing

Post procedure care

Following treatment, your face will be bandaged, and will need to be cleaned several times a day, as advised by your doctor.

Possible discomfort

Itching and stinging for up to 72 hours post-procedure, later the skin may become dry and peel.
