Laser Resurfacing

The treatment of laser resurfacing, also known as laser peeling, laser vaporisation, or lasabrasion, improves the appearance of the skin and is used to address minor cosmetic defects. Treatment is advised for the following

  • Uneven surface and skin tone
  • Acne scarring (mild -moderate)
  • Wound scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin damage from the sun
  • Increased oil gland size

Ablative laser or Co2 laser resurfacing (fractional laser) uses an ultrapulse or continuous light beam in a pattern that causes minimal thermal damage and removes the top layer of damaged skin. This therapy aids in skin rejuvenation and makes the skin look smoother and more taut thereafter. Skin heals between four days to two weeks.

Second is nonablative laser, which is less intense than Co2 laser and recovers more quickly. It employs intense pulse light along with other laser types. It promotes collagen growth, which improves the treated area as a whole. To choose the process, one must be aware of the indications, the approach, and the possible outcomes for the best outcome.
