Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure used for removing acne scars or wrinkles from facial skin. This is a comprehensive treatment, in which skin layers are peeled off one-by-one, using an intense laser beam directed at the face. The process is usually completed within a couple of hours at the most.

Both Carbon-dioxide and Erbium laser treatments can be done. The CO2 treatment technique targets skin layers using ultrapulses. The recovery can take about 2 weeks. The Erbium-YAG laser treatment is used for moderately deep scars. In this process, the heating up of adjacent tissue is lesser when compare to CO2 method and as such, the recovery time is drastically reduced.

Some of the other treatment techniques used are Fraxel Laser Treatment (FLT), microdermabrasion and iontophoresis (microinfusion).

Broad after-treatment care has to be taken to ensure that the skin stays healthy.
