Laser Skin Resurfacing Results And Benefits

Laser skin resurfacing has gained popularity recently because of its advantages over alternative approaches that may cause discomfort, bleeding, and bruising, all of which mean a longer recovery time. One of the most recent innovations in anti-aging remedies has been laser skin resurfacing, which improves the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation, primarily around the eyes and mouth. It can also be used to treat large areas of the face. The result of more youthful-looking skin means laser skin resurfacing can be psychologically rejuvenating as well.

Laser skin resurfacing recovery and results vary depending upon the type of laser that is being used and the size of the area you wish to have treated. The most invasive treatments may produce enormous improvements, but may require an extended recovery time of multiple weeks. A gentler laser skin rejuvenation treatment may reduce the appearance of some imperfections and may require little or no downtime.

New collagen production and tighter, smoother skin, as well as a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin coloration, sun damage, scars, and other facial imperfections are what you can get from Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Consult Your Laser Treatment With a Qualified Doctor

Consult a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist who have extensive experience using a laser. Only experienced and knowledgeable doctors will know which laser is most appropriate for each condition and will have received appropriate training on the device. For example, acne scars may be best treated with a CO2 laser, while other lasers may be preferred for other types of scars.

Using a qualified doctor will increase your odds of success and reduce the risk of complications. I strongly recommend that you consider choosing a doctor who is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Here are some tips to consider when consulting a doctor :
  • Ask about credentials, training, and the number of times the procedure has been performed in the practice. Ask the doctor to show you his certificate and photo before and after treatment.
  • Which equipment will be used, where the procedure will be performed, and the extent of the procedure.
Ask these questions bellow to your doctor before decide to do the treatment :
  1. How should I prepare my skin for the treatment?
  2. Where is the procedure performed? How long will the procedure take?
  3. What kind of anesthesia is used?
  4. How much does the procedure cost?
  5. Is there any complication before? How many of them? And what is the cause?
  6. Will you repeat or correct procedures if it does not meet agreed upon goals? And if the procedure must be repeated / corrected, will I be charged again?
  7. Could I observe the exact procedure I am considering before I decide to have the procedure?
  8. What should I expect after care treatment, in terms of soreness, what to watch for, medication, bathing, and level of activity?
  9. Who will be assisting during the procedure? What are their qualifications?
  10. Do you have privileges to perform laser resurfacing with a CO2 laser at an accredited hospital?
Be sure to :
  • Tell your doctor about any allergies you have and medications, herbal supplements or natural supplements that you are taking, especially Acutane before the surgery. This medication affects the skin’s ability to heal after laser resurfacing.
  • Be sure to tell your doctor if you smoke. Smoking can lead to complications and poor healing.
  • Tell your doctor if you have been exposed to significant amounts of radiation, have a history of unusual or poor scarring, or cold sores– like herpes or shingles or serious medical conditions
  • Tell your doctor if you have had previous facial surgery.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

Complications, Risks And Limitation of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Case for any complications for this procedure is rare. When they occur they may include skin discoloration, pigmentation changing, burning, scarring and virus infection. One thing you should know, laser skin resurfacing does not stop the aging process. That’s why, wrinkles, discoloration, and other imperfections can reappear throughout your lifetime.

Pigmentation Changing
Semi-permanent or permanent skin lightening may occur in the treated areas. This is unpredictable and hard to treat without permanent tattooing of the skin. The skin may also become hyperpigmented (darker) immediately following the surgery. Often this darkening treats itself, lightening on its own or responding to various skin care regimens that include hydroquinone (a bleaching crème) and alpha hydroxy (fruit) acids.

Laser skin resurfacing may not sufficiently tighten the skin, and surgical excision may be necessary to achieve the results desired. It is most often worthwhile the try to perform laser procedure first to avoid the possibility of scarring, so do not be dismayed if a secondary procedure is necessary.

Burns and Injuries
Heat from the laser may cause burns or injuries. To reduce the risks involved in this procedure, carefully follow all of your surgeon’s instructions, both before and after surgery.
