How does laser skin resurfacing work and what is it suitable for?

The procedure is suitable for anybody who is worried about the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as other skin problems, like pigmentation problems and scarring. 

It works by promoting the growth of newer, smoother skin by removing the old, damaged outer layers.

What happens during the laser skin resurfacing procedure?

The procedure is carried out as an out-patient. The practitioner will guide the laser beam backwards and forwards over the skin until it reaches a level where a wrinkle or scar is less visible. Once completed, a protective ointment is applied and a bandage to protect the skin for 5-10 days.

What is the recovery time for laser skin resurfacing?

Downtime will depend on how aggressive the treatment is. Afterwards, discomfort, swelling and redness are normal. You may find the application of ice packs will soothe hot skin. If you have had bandages applied they will be changed every few days. The skin may be weepy, and crusts may form, which you should leave to fall off on their own.

Your skin may be red for several weeks, and it may be pink for up to 6 months. Remember to wear a high-factor sunscreen to prevent damage to your new skin, which may result in pigmentation problems. Some people may also notice their skin is highly-sensitive to the cosmetics they wore before and so you may have to change the products you are using.
