Laser Skin Resurfacing in Mexicali

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing in Mexicali

If your skin is looking dull and aged then laser skin resurfacing in Mexicali may be of help. It is not a surgical procedure, but it does remove fine lines, pigmentation, wrinkles, surface scars and blotches that make your skin look older.

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses various lasers to ‘peel’ the skin and it is the doctor who will decide (depending on your goal and the condition of your skin) how deep the peel should be for optimum results.

After laser skin resurfacing, when your skin rejuvenates, it will be fresher and smoother. It will also be tighter and the tell-tale signs of aging will disappear, taking years off your face, but subtly, so people will notice that you are looking better, but not be able to tell what you had done.

Why consider laser skin resurfacing in Mexicali?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that is not paid for by insurance. If you go to Mexicali for a holiday, you can get this treatment done at an affordable rate. Being in the northern end of Mexico, Mexicali is easily accessible from many states in the U.S. and Canada by road or by air. You don’t need a visa for Mexico from most countries. Being a medical tourism hub is it full of good quality clinics and hospitals for plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. 

In Mexicali you can find lots to see and do. For the history buff, it has historical and cultural attractions including monuments that are thousands of years old. For the sporting enthusiast it has golf, racing, river fishing and kayaking. For the nature lover it has parks and gardens and other natural habitats. For the person who likes socializing it has many restaurants, nightclubs and bars. And for the inveterate shopper it has big shopping malls and local shops selling all kinds of goods.

Why should you not book on your own?

There are so many clinics that specialize in various cosmetic treatments that you will not be able to separate the wheat from the chaff. If you book on your own and land up at a place that is not so good, you can suffer from many problems, since laser skin resurfacing is not suitable for various skin disorders and can wreak havoc if it is done regardless. It is vital that you go to a place that has been vetted and has a board certified doctor.

You can ensure your own safety when you book through Medical Departures. That is because we have a system of checks and balances in place. We always check out the qualifications, credentials, skill and experience of the doctors attached to the clinics or hospitals we list on our website. We see to it that the clinics offer good amenities and that the staff is trained. You can be certain that when you book through us you are going to have a great experience.

How long does laser skin resurfacing take and what is the estimated recovery period?

Before treatment you will need to wear a special eye mask so that your eyes don’t get damaged. The doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to the area to be treated so that pain or heat sensation is reduced and you only feel minor discomfort. If the laser has to go much deeper, he may use local anesthesia.  During laser resurfacing the doctor will pass the laser several times over the areas to be treated. This will damage the skin or vaporize it and the new skin that grows back will be smoother and tighter. Among the lasers that are used:

  • Fraxel laser – this is for minor treatment and may need to be repeated several times at intervals for best results.

  • Erbium laser – this is used for removing thinner layers of skin, where a lot of work is not required. This is suitable for people with dark skin tone as the risk of pigmentation is reduced.

  • CO2 laser – this is a high intensity treatment that penetrates deeper into the skin and gives excellent results.

The time taken will vary from half an hour to two hours (time range for minor and major treatment). If required you will have dressings and bandages on your skin and may not want to go out during this time. You will, in case, have to take care of your skin as it is growing back and use recommended creams and sun block. Minor treatments will require no downtime, but major treatments will take six weeks for the results to be apparent. You may require a recovery period of two to three weeks.

What is the cost of laser skin resurfacing?
