Laser Skin Resurfacing in Chiang Mai

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing in Chiang Mai

If your skin is looking dull and blotchy and this makes you look tired and old then you should consider laser skin resurfacing in Chiang Mai. With laser skin resurfacing you can get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and even minor scars. This treatment can be done at a superficial level or a deeper level – it is up to the doctor to decide how deep down to go to get the desired results. The results of this treatment are comparable to those got from chemical peels or dermabrasion.

The new skin that forms is firmer and fresher thanks to the increased collagen production under the skin. This treatment will get the glow back to your face, make you look younger and remove the tell tale signs of ageing without undergoing radical surgery. The lasers work by causing damage to the skin or peeling the skin and this forces the skin to renew itself. Different kinds of lasers are used to peel the skin and this can be targeted or all over.

Why consider laser skin resurfacing in Chiang Mai?

Cosmetic treatments are not covered by insurance as they are strictly speaking not medical treatments. At the same time they are not as cheap as beauty procedures. So if you go to Chiang Mai for a holiday, you should definitely invest in some cosmetic treatments for yourself at affordable prices and go back looking younger and refreshed.

Chiang Mai has a lot to offer the tourist. It is a popular tourist spot and also hosts a large population of expats. It is also a medical tourism hub and boasts of excellent medical facilities and well qualified, English speaking doctors. As the cost of living here is reasonable, all medical and beauty treatments are also eminently affordable.

Considered as one of the best tourist destinations in the world, Chiang Mai is home to more than 300 temples, architecturally and historically significant, some of them thousands of years old. Apart from that, the place is known for its wildlife like tigers and elephants and you can even go for a night zoo safari or watch elephants bathing, go to orchid, snake or butterfly farms. It also has many street markets, including night markets. You will never be at a loss for interesting things to do.

Why book with Medical Departures?

Your holiday and hotel are all booked and you are excited to go for a holiday. You think you will be able to go there and get some treatments done. However, you will really not know about any place, no matter how good it looks and seems. And if you do the booking earlier, you will still not be able to tell how good a clinic is when you get there. In the hands of an inexperienced technician or doctor, your skin can suffer from blisters, burns and pigmentation, not the results you wanted.

For safety and the best price guarantee book through Medical Departures. We always conduct background checks and investigations into the qualifications, credentials of the doctors working at the clinics we list on our website. We also see that the ambience of the clinics is of a good standard and that they follow international practices and adhere to recognized international hygiene and safety standards, such as those laid down by the International Standards Organizaton.

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

The time taken depends on the area to be treated and the depth to which the skin undergoes laser resurfacing. Doctors also use different lasers such as ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers and fractional lasers. Each type is used for varied treatments and depends on the current condition of your skin. Sometimes a combination of different techniques is used for best results. Usually you will have local anesthesia and will go home after you have recovered sufficiently. The procedure can take from 30 minutes to two hours.

Depending on the depth of the treatment you may require very little downtime. However, if you have full treatment at a deeper level you can expect at least two weeks for recovery. At that time you may have swelling and redness that can persist as the skin heels and you will need to take good care of your skin during this time. Complete recovery can take between six and eight weeks.

What is the cost of laser resurfacing in Chiang Mai?

In Australia you can expect to pay between AUD 2,000 and AUD 4,500 for the full face. In Chiang Mai you will pay a fraction of this price.
