Many of us still remember the days when music found its new home – conversion from tape to Laser Disc players and Compact Disc players. At the same time, lasers fascinated us with their powers in science fiction movies. Lasers are not science fiction anymore. They have found a place in every facet of life including cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures.
Skin resurfacing is a useful procedure to peel off our outer shell of face and bring out new, smooth, and youthful skin. Skin resurfacing is a time-tested concept. Humans have been using chemicals and abrasives for skin resurfacing for centuries, and this practice still continues. Laser is the newest addition in tools, used to resurface the skin.
Unique benefits of laser skin resurfacing
But the laser is not a mere addition in already available options, it has some unique capabilities, which no other substitute can offer. The laser does peeling by evaporation, instead of mechanical or chemical means. Lasers offer a great control to adjust the intensity and depth of the peeling. This translates to more consistent results and even peeling on all areas of the face. Additionally, lasers have the unique ability to stimulate the collagen under the skin. Collagen stimulation results in tight, smooth, and youthful skin. With adjustable settings, you can have the results you want. However, more intense peeling results in longer downtime.
Procedure of laser skin resurfacing
This is a quick and straightforward procedure. Your dermatologist or expert holds a wand like tool, capable of emitting laser light. You are given special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser light. A numbing cream is also applied to your skin to avoid discomfort. You will not feel pain, but a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band across your skin. This laser wand will be applied to the whole area under treatment.
You will be given instructions regarding post-op care. You should apply any given creams on a regular basis, and protect your skin from the sun at all times. Your face will remain red for a few days or a few weeks depending on the intensity of the laser.
