Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Skin laser therapy or laser resurfacing is a procedure which can help to reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes. Laser skin resurfacing is also known as laser peel, laser vaporization or lasabrasion. In this procedure, the surgeon uses the laser to send short, targeted pulsating beams of light on the irregular skin. This in turn eliminates unwanted, damaged skin in a much focused manner.

The laser beam will remove the skin's outer layer, the epidermis and heats up the underlying skin, called the dermis. This process helps to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. When the treated region heals, smoother and firmer skin is formed.

Laser resurfacing helps in correcting facial problems, such as:

  • Wrinkles around or underneath your eyes, forehead or mouth
  • Scars caused due to acne or chickenpox
  • Non-responsive skin after a facelift
  • Aged skin or sun-damaged skin
  • Liver spots
  • Improves complexion and skin texture
  • Treatment of warts and birthmarks
  • Enlargement of oil glands on the nose

Skin laser therapy: The procedure

The patient has to undergo a series of skin treatments to prepare the skin for the laser procedure. These treatments often start 6 weeks prior to the scheduled procedure. All the skin treatments are customized based on your specific skin type.

Cosmetic laser resurfacing is usually done on an outpatient basis and takes at least 2 hours.

Two types of lasers are used in laser resurfacing namely; Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Erbium. These lasers help to vaporize superficial, damaged skin cells.

CO2 laser resurfacing

A CO2 laser emits short pulsated continuous light energy which removes thin layers of skin with extreme precision, causing minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

Erbium laser resurfacing

Erbium laser resurfacing is used to remove superficial and moderately deep lines as well as facial wrinkles. It can also be used on the neck, chest or hands.

Recovery and results

Following the procedure, specialized dressing id applied to the treated area to protect the tissues. Topical treatments may be required to promote healing. There will be redness and inflammation on the skin, and an itching sensation for a few days after the procedure. The skin may become raw, oozing or even blister. The treated region will become dry and peel off after a few days.

You can follow these steps for a speedy recovery:

  • Cleanse the treated region two to five times a day with saline or diluted vinegar solution.
  • Use sunscreen every day.
  • Apply a moderate amount of moisturizer daily.
  • Apply Retin-A and/or glycolic acid products six weeks later after the laser resurfacing procedure as instructed by the physician.
