Laser resurfacing is a treatment used to minimize the severity of skin abnormalities such as fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and scars.

The procedure involves:

  • Focusing tiny.
  • Focused pulsing laser light beams toward skin abnormalities.
  • Eliminating damaged skin layer by layer with remarkable accuracy.

Modern laser technologies provide a new degree of control in laser surfacing, allowing for exceptional precision, particularly in sensitive locations.

This well-known process is known as lasabrasion, laser peeling, or laser vaporization.

How does laser resurfacing work?

Laser skin resurfacing uses highly specialized laser devices that generate a focused beam of light. This beam of light has special properties with respect to its absorption by specific target molecules and depth of penetration in the skin. The laser light is selectively absorbed by varied amounts of water molecules in the skin. This method precisely eliminates scarred and damaged skin layer by layer.

The laser light beam used in laser resurfacing eliminates the epidermis or outer layer of skin. At the same time, the deeper layer, i.e., the dermis, gets heated. Dermal heating encourages the formation of new collagen fibers. The new skin that forms after the healing process is smoother and firmer.

What may laser skin resurfacing help with?

With this therapy, a wide range of skin-aging issues can be treated and cured. Among them are the following:

  • Wrinkles or fine lines behind the eyes, on the forehead, or around the lips
  • Acne or chickenpox scars
  • Skin that is unresponsive after a facelift
  • If you have yellowish or grey skin tones, improve your complexion.
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks such as linear epidermal nevi are common.
  • Nasal oil gland enlargement

What should I expect as a result of the procedure?

When the skin heals in a week, one will notice an improvement in the blemishes, skin texture, and acne scars. Since collagen remodeling takes time, fine lines, wrinkles, and deeper acne scars will heal progressively over the following few months. This will continue to improve for at least another year.

Is this treatment painful?

Laser skin resurfacing can be uncomfortable. To reduce any kind of pain, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area 30 minutes before the procedure.

One may also feel a burning and stinging sensation for a few days after the treatment, which can be eased by freezing the affected area.
