Blotched, wrinkled, and/or sun damaged skin can create insecurities and make individuals self-conscious about their appearance. Instead of having to go under the knife and having plastic surgery carried out, one can have a non-invasive treatment carried out. With Laser Skin Resurfacing, the outer surface of the skin is removed so wrinkles, lines, scarring, and sun damage can be removed. Even with one treatment, a person can reduce the signs of aging and make their skin more youthful looking and smooth.
Who Should Have This Procedure Carried Out?
Those who have skin issues such as wrinkles, lines, scarring, sun damage, and uneven skin tone are all good candidates. Those with deep scarring, lines, and wrinkles may need to have more than one skin procedure carried out to ensure they get the best results. As the laser destroys the dead outer layers of skin, new skin growth is encouraged so the damaged areas are replaced with fresh skin growth.
What Should One Expect During and After the Procedure?
A full face treatment may require sedation while spot treatments will only need localized numbing. A partial treatment can last around thirty to forty-five minutes while a full face treatment may take as long as two hours. After the procedure has been carried out, the doctor will bandage the treated areas so they are protected. It is important that patients carefully clean their face and use petroleum jelly to prevent scabbing once the bandages are removed.
Side Effects One Can Expect After Treatment
This procedure rarely causes any major pain but one may feel some mild discomfort. Swelling after the procedure is normal and will go down over a period of time. If the eye area is treated, steroids may need to be prescribed to ensure the swelling stays under control. A person may feel some itching and stinging for a few days after the procedure. Full healing generally takes two to three weeks and it is important one avoids sun exposure during this time to prevent burns.
