Also known as lasabrasion, laser vaporization, and laser peel, laser skin resurfacing treatments are designed to reduce blemishes, sun damage, scars and wrinkles using a laser on face technique. The latest laser facial technology helps the physician achieve extreme precision while working with delicate areas on the body.

So, if you have enlarged oil glands, unwanted birthmarks, warts, liver spots, acne or chickenpox scars, wrinkles or fine lines, you may have found the most effective treatment for you. It also works if you wish to improve your complexion or generally get rid of sun damage.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”http://www.skinclubaustralia.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/divider-centered.png” alt=”divider centered” _builder_version=”3.2″ use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1px” border_style=”solid” animation=”off” sticky=”off”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.2″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid”]

The fractional lasers for face involve removing damaged skin one layer at a time using pulsating beams of light. This approach is one of the best as it poses less risk to your skin being exposed to hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. The facial laser beam will instead remove the epidermis, which forms the outer layer of your skin while emitting heat energy on the dermis underneath.

The effect of this is that the face laser will activate the growth of new collagen, which forms new skin as the treated area heals. Therefore, you will have firmer and smoother skin. If you have sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or very dark skin tone, this may not be the best option for you as it may expose you to other dangers like black pigmentation for darker skin tones. One important thing to note is that inexperienced hands should never do laser resurfacing.

Therefore, the most important task for you to do is to find a qualified and trained physician experienced in the use of different types of lasers and the procedure required to obtain the best results. The two types of laser skin resurfacing treatments are ablative and non-ablative, with both having varied price ranges. The average cost for non-ablative is $1300, while that of the ablative is usually about $2200.

However, this is only part of the total price as it doesn’t include a lot of other fees unique to some clinics. The best way to get accurate pricing of your skin care procedure is by requesting a specific quote based on location, type of treatment, and expertise of the physician.

You may be tempted to go for an unqualified dermatologist who is a cheaper option, but that would be a terrible move as the lesser price is not worth the permanent damage to your skin should things go wrong. Be sure that you find a physician you have confidence in and can trust to get it right.

To ensure you get the best results, you may have to start with some skin care treatments to prepare your skin ahead of laser therapy. This can be about three months before your appointment, and it will be specific to your skin type to minimize the risks of complications. Cosmetic lasabrasion is always on an outpatient basis as it could take as little as 30 minutes to complete the procedure.

While this treatment can be painful, your dermatologist will make this easier by using a local anaesthetic to numb your skin. If you wish to, you will be given a sedative that will help you relax. Your face will also be cleaned while you use goggles for eye protection. When it comes to laser resurfacing, your physician can use either erbium or carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, which both vaporize damaged skin cells.

Carbon dioxide lasers remove thin layers of the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. They can either deliver the lasers in continuous light beams or via concise pulsed light energy. Erbium laser, on the other hand, is best for removing wrinkles on several parts of the body. After the completion of your procedure, your dermatologist will protect the treated tissues using special dressing.

Reactions to this procedure vary from one person to the next. However, a general feeling is the sensation of a mild sunburn accompanied by swelling and redness. You may also have stinging and itching for some days after the procedure. To avoid scarring, resist the urge to pick at crusts or scratch them if they form on the treated area. Your skin may also peel after about a week.

Recovery after your laser procedure

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”http://www.skinclubaustralia.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/divider-centered.png” alt=”divider centered” _builder_version=”3.2″ use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1px” border_style=”solid” animation=”off” sticky=”off”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.2″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid”]

To ensure a smooth recovery process, be sure to clean the treated area at least five times a day according to your physician’s instructions. Also, apply the necessary skin care treatments and use sunscreen that’s formulated for your rejuvenated skin. If instructed by your physician, keep your skin moisturized as often as possible. Stay away from bandages and thick cream that can expose you to the risk of developing white bumps on your face.

The peeling of your skin is necessary during your recovery time. Your treated skin will appear pink for a while before fading away after some months. Therefore, your skin will be quite sensitive during this time and will need all the protective care it can get to avoid scarring.

This skin resurfacing procedure is not without its complications. These could include swelling around the eyes, rare scarring, and prolonged redness, small white bumps known as milia, and acne flares. Your skin could also be exposed to hyperpigmentation. Bacterial infection can be managed with the right antibiotics, and you could also experience cold sore reactivation if you have a history of herpes or cold sores.

You can enjoy a smoother recovery process by quitting smoking, using an ice pack to ease discomfort, and using an extra pillow to prop up your head at night. The recovery period for erbium laser skin resurfacing is about a week, while that of CO2 laser skin resurfacing is about two weeks.

You can conceal your red or pink skin with makeup after the treated areas have healed up nicely. The makeup will help in toning down the colour so that you don’t feel awkward. The best option for this is oil-free makeup or one that helps in neutralizing the red colour like a green-based makeup.

Since the pinkish colour or redness will stay around for several months after your skin resurfacing treatment, you have to minimize sun exposure as you will be extra sensitive to the sun rays. Use sunscreen as often as possible. While some people may have to wait for several months to see a significant result, others see an immediate difference in the appearance of their skin. Improvements from skin resurfacing treatment usually continue for as long as a year after which long-term effects can be expected.

This procedure is somewhat permanent, but it can’t eliminate the normal aging process. Therefore, you can expect that fine lines and wrinkles will still be waiting somewhere in your future. To make the results as permanent as possible, you can opt for several sessions. However, your physician’s recommendations will always be the best, and they will let you know how many sessions are appropriate for your skin condition.

Laser resurfacing has made its mark in the skincare world as an effective way of treating a variety of conditions. You can enjoy all these impressive benefits by picking the right clinic and making sure that a competent dermatologist does your laser resurfacing treatment. Laser resurfacing is your ticket to radiant skin, completely free of unwanted blemishes.
