What is laser resurfacing?
I could, of course, hear, at least, some people, reading this, asking me is it safe to go under the knife and that too in your face? Now, let me explain what this is actually. Laser resurfacing is the process of sending light beams on the damaged surface to remove it layer after layer. It vaporizes the skin, removing it completely and permanently. As a result, you get rid of the scar and wrinkles as the new skin that grows after healing will be healthy and attractive. Thus, you can be free from the blotchy skin that was plaguing you for a long time! This is also called as skin vaporization or peeling.
Who can undergo this treatment?
If you are a person with lines or wrinkles under your eyes or you have a lot of blemish marks left by acne, you can go ahead with the treatment. On the flip side, the people who have a very dark complexion or at present have acne can’t undergo this treatment. The first and the foremost thing you have to do is to consult a doctor to know whether you can undergo the treatment or not. During the consultation, the doctor will advise you to avoid taking some medicines such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, as it hinders the clotting process, for 10 days before the operation. The doctor will prescribe, as a precaution, some antiviral and antibacterial medicines in case you get a painful infection or blisters because of the virus.
What are the different types of laser resurfacing?
There are two types of resurfacing and they are:
- Carbon dioxide resurfacing
- Erbium resurfacing
- Carbon dioxide resurfacing: The carbon resurfacing or fractioned resurfacing involves sending very short and continuous beams of light in a regular pattern, vaporizing the cells on the surface of the skin. You don’t need to be worried about this treatment as it involves minimal heat damage to the treated areas. This is a very old treatment and a lot of people have been benefited out of this for a long time. It may take at least a couple of weeks for you to recover completely.
- Erbium Resurfacing: Unlike the previous treatment, this method removes the damaged skin not only on the surface, but a little deep and sometimes may result in bruising and swelling of the treated areas. It completely removes the scars and wrinkles that are a little evident on your face. The time required for healing in the case of erbium resurfacing is one week in most of the cases. Is your skin tone dark? Then, erbium resurfacing would do a better job than carbon dioxide resurfacing.
