Skin defects laser correction

 

 

Laser skin resurfacingis

Laser skin resurfacingis a an effective technique used to remove skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face. Consult your Vremya Krasoty dermatologist to find out if laser skin resurfacing is good for you. Usually you will not have to stay overnight after perfoming the procedure, but in certain cases it may be required.

Your Vremya Krasoty doctor will treat wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead individually or treat your entire face. For small areas, the doctor will numb the areas to be treated with a local anesthetic and may also sedate you. You may require general anesthesia if your whole face is being treated.

A full-face treatment takes up to two hours.Treating just parts of the face takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

Following the laser procedure, the doctor will bandage the treated areas. After 24 hours, you will need to clean the treated areas four to five times a day and then apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabs from forming.

Swelling after laser skin resurfacing is normal. Your doctor may prescribe steroids to manage swelling around your eyes. Sleeping on an extra pillow at night can also ease swelling and in 6 days after laser resurfacing, your skin may become dry and peel.

Benefits and Risks of Laser Resurfacing

Depending on the problem that was treated, healing typically takes 10 to 21 days - if it was done with CO2 type of the laser, and 6 days only - if is was arbie type of the laser. Once the skin heals, you can wear oil-free makeup to minimize redness, which usually fades in two to three months.

You will also probably notice that your skin is lighter for a while after surgery. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one specially formulated for use on the face with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. Limit your time in the sun also. It is also important to keep your new skin well moisturized with the proper cream, a selection of brands can be found in Vremya Krasoty in-clinic store. If you use Retin A or glycolic acid products, you should be able to start using them again after about six weeks or when your doctor says you can.
