What is Laser Rejuvenation?

divider centered

We need the sun to survive, produce Vitamin D, and make us feel alive. However, excessive sun exposure causes sun damage, affecting the skin tone and altering our appearance. In addition, damage from the sun to our skin, age, and the reduction in collagen production causes wrinkles and fine lines. This makes the skin look old and withered.

Skin rejuvenation is a procedure to restore the appearance and texture of the skin. A dermatologist uses Laser resurfacing to slow the effects of time on the skin. This skin rejuvenation technique works on all parts of the body. For people with more shrivelled skin on the face, Laser face treatment is available to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Different skin rejuvenation procedures are available depending on the extent of the damage and the patient’s individual needs. The most common laser treatment is the carbon dioxide laser resurfacing and the erbium resurfacing procedure. Both Laser resurfacing methods are powerful laser treatments to treat wrinkles, folding, facial scars, warts, and other facial and skin problems

Erbium Laser Resurfacing is a treatment or facial laser procedure for eliminating superficial and moderately deep lines on the face, chest, neck, chin, and hands. This process of skin resurfacing has fewer side effects and scarring with a fast recovery time.

Depending on the Laser resurfacing procedure, patients are usually up and going in just under a week. Although the Erbium laser resurfacing procedure works for all skin tones, it is better for people with darker skin. Because scars and other side effects are not visible and disappear from the skin as healing occurs.

You may need as many as five sessions at four-week intervals to acheive your desired result.

Carbon dioxide laser Resurfacing

This skin resurfacing method is the most used treatment in the beauty industry. Like the Erbium skin resurfacing methods, it can be used to treat different skin ailments, including scars, wrinkles, and others. In addition, CO2 skin rejuvenation also allows the Laser on the face to curb enlarged pores and oil glands on people prone to acne.

Both the Carbon dioxide and Erbium Laser procedures use fractional lasers to deliver short bouts of light energy that remove the surface layer of the skin, eliminating sun damage and other skin problems to reveal an active layer.

What are the side effects of laser treatment?

Laser resurfacing is the go-to treatment for all skin problems. You feel new after a resurfacing treatment, whether you suffer from pigmentation, uneven skin tone, sunburn, sagging, or scarring. However, there are risks associated with these methods. Aside from the usual swelling, redness, and pain, laser-treated skin can suffer from the following:

    Pimples –When used to treat acne, there is a probability that the creams and bandages increase acne or a skin condition called milia (tiny white bumps on the skin). Infection – The upper layer is removed; this opens the new surface up for disease. Patients who underwent Laser resurfacing saw an increase in herpes and cold sore.

    Hyper/hypo-pigmentation

    the process of Laser resurfacing alters the colour; it is expected. However, some procedures leave your skin too dark or light, but it will return to normal as you heal.

    Finally, one severe but rare side-effect is ectropion. This is a condition where the lower eyelid flips out, revealing the inner fleshy surface resulting from the Laser resurfacing procedure on the lower eyelids. If you opt for rejuvenation, discuss the best skin treatment applicable to your skin and the condition with your dermatologist or other practitioners.

    How much does laser skin rejuvenation cost?

    Most resurfacing procedures are referred to as cosmetic surgeries. However, this treatment is not covered in the medical insurance plan in most countries, so please speak with your doctor about payment before you begin.

    The procedure cost depends on the condition of the targeted area and the type of Laser resurfacing you are deciding on. Regardless, the price ranges from $300 to $2,500 per session. CO2 and erbium laser treatment are usually more expensive but effective. The overall cost includes the number of sessions, the areas under treatment, and the facility. Most people will undergo multiple treatments before they start to see results.

    Laser resurfacing does not require spending the night in the hospital. Patients who come in for a full-face treatment spend no more than 2 hours from start to finish. If a part of your face is being treated, the duration depends on the severity of the treated condition. This treatment can be performed over the weekend to get you ready with a new face on Monday morning.

      Is laser skin treatment safe?

      Sun damage, wrinkles, skin laxity, pigmentation, scarring, or scar that will not go away are some reasons for Laser resurfacing. Of course, there are other alternative treatments like dermabrasion, needling, chemical peel, and others. But, Laser resurfacing is the safest way to have rejuvenation skin results that will last for months.

      Laser skin resurfacing is safe, whether you opt for erbium laser treatment or a non-ablative laser resurfacing treatment. However, ensure you use a certified beauty clinic with a medical doctor who understands the guidelines and procedure for a lasting result.

      Each Laser resurfacing treatment has its side effects and recovery times, so try to educate yourself about the process and do not forget to ask questions before the procedure. The minimal downtime for each procedure depends on the patients but most recover substantially 10 to 14 days after the treatment.

      Benefits of laser skin resurfacing

      Skin resurfacing treatments are to restore your skin confidence and yours. Laser skin options are great in fixing cosmetic flaws that affect our self-esteem and personality.

      Wrinkles – we all want to look good even as we age. However, aging causes the skin to grow thinner, less elastic, weaker, and direr, resulting in wrinkles. Furthermore, the effect of the sun also hastens this process. Laser resurfacing is the perfect way to fight against wrinkles and skin folding without causing excess damage to the skin, especially around the eyes and lips.

      Sagging skin – is a common occurrence in life. While some experience it sooner, others enjoy firmness into their 80s and 90s. Although skin sagging occurs around the body, it looks unpleasant on some people’s faces and lowers their self-esteem. Resurfacing surgeries work by tightening the skin and so help to eliminate this common aging phenomenon.

      Unevenness – bumps, and grooves on the face are not appealing. It is due to different skin treatments and creams, while others are the natural process in the skin. The good news is that laser surgeries can help even out uneven skin and trigger collagen production for a glossier face.

      Acne scars – acne is a common skin condition that affects everyone. Squeezing and fiddling with acne causes scarring, blemishes, and uneven skin as you continuously touch your face. The Laser resurfacing method helps remove acne, scarring, lesions, clogged pores, and tone. Although you will experience the usual side effects, the process will reveal a newer, smoother, and silkier surface.

      Age Spots – brown or discolouration spots/marks that appear on the skin due to pigmentation. They occur due to being in the sun, tanning, and overproduction of melanin in the skin.

      If you have this problem, laser skin resurfacing will help. The process eliminates the damaged and dead cells in the spot, making the area more refined and even.

      Skin tightening – as discussed above, when you undergo a laser procedure, it triggers the skin cells to increase collagen. The collagen instantly gives you a firmer and more youthful skin that improves over time.

      Fix spider veins and prominent blood vessels – they are ugly and deter you from wearing your favourite clothes. These unwanted lines are broken capillaries resulting from excess drinking, the sun, and hormone changes. The laser procedure helps reduce the appearance in as little as two or three sessions.

      To reduce enlarged glands – acne and acne scarring are due to enlarged oil glands. It causes unevenness and blemishes giving a bumpy look. Laser skin resurfacing reduces the pores creating a smooth and long-lasting look.

      Laser skin resurfacing is the best choice of treatment for many skin conditions. However, keep in mind that the process might require subsequent sessions. Simple acts like staying away from the sun, using multiple skincare remedies, excessive tanning, and improper diet are all triggers to watch out for.

      Laser skin rejuvenation is proven to correct flawed skin and prevent others from appearing. If you are thinking of going through this procedure, talk to a qualified doctor or dermatologist before proceeding. CO2 treatment is the best for many dermatological conditions.
