What Is

Laser Skin Resurfacing?

The power of lasers has been used in the medical field for a long time. Along with the medical field, lasers have proved to be tremendously useful in the cosmetic field as well. Laser Skin Resurfacing makes use of this technology to take care of any skin imperfections ranging from fine lines and wrinkles to acne spots and marks.

Laser Skin Resurfacing machines use short pulsating beams of lasers which are targeted at the problem areas. These beams work upon different layers of the skin depending upon the issue at hand to restore smooth and even skin.

What Problems

Can Be Corrected With The Help Of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

These are a few of the many problems that can be treated with the help of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

  • Ageing:
    Ageing is one of the most prominent issues which can be clearly seen on the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines often form on the face, neck and various parts of the body. Laser Skin resurfacing has proven to be extremely effective in treating wrinkles and fine lines along with creases that appear on the face. It is an excellent and effective anti-ageing treatment without having to introduce any foreign material in the body.
  • Acne scars and marks:
    Having acne comes with a price. It often leaves stubborn marks and scars on the skin which refuse to budge. Laser Skin Resurfacing helps in combating even these stubborn dark scars and marks to rejuvenate the skin and restore a blemish free appearance.
  • Pigmentation:
    Tanning and dark spots are some things which are unavoidable; especially in a country like India where we are blessed with abundant sunshine. Sun-tans and pigmentation tend to darken overtime and this takes away the radiance of the skin making it dull and lifeless. Also, pigmentation sometimes takes place unevenly which affects the texture of the skin. Laser Skin Resurfacing helps to remove the dark spots, tan and hyperpigmentation to restore a radiant and even skin tone.

Along with these, Laser Skin Resurfacing also takes care of the lines that form on the face due to constant muscle movement which is inevitable as we tend to express ourselves. These expressions like smiling, frowning, squinting of eyes, etc cause issues like crow’s feet (near the eyes), smile lines and frown lines which can be smoothed with this treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing is thus a multipurpose treatment that helps to achieve a stunning appearance by treating various issues.

How Is

Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?

  • Laser Skin Resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. That is, one does not need to stay at the hospital overnight for the process.
  • As the process is non-invasive, a topical anesthetic is sufficient. However, in some cases local anesthesia might be given to avoid any discomfort.
  • The type of laser according to the situation is decided upon.Laser Skin Resurfacing is performed with the help of either Ablative Lasers or Non-Ablative Lasers at Vanity Cosmetic Clinic. Both these methods use different wavelengths of lasers which penetrate differently into the skin surface to correct the issue at hand.
    1. Ablative Lasers: Ablative skin resurfacing results in vaporizing of tissue. This vaporizing of tissue generally initiates a healing process wherein new collagen production is observed. Ablative lasers work on the superficial layers of the skin and thus help in solving issues like sun damage, fine lines or small blemishes. The most common types of ablative lasers involve Ebrium YAG and CO2.
    2. Non-Ablative Lasers: Non-Ablative lasers generally penetrate deeper to reach the dermis and the epidermis. They not only stimulate the collagen production, but also skin growth. This helps to solve more complex problems like long term sun damage and scarring.
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing is generally performed in multiple sessions for best results. The amount of sessions highly depends upon the individual case.
