Laser Skin Resurfacing is an aggressive treatment approach to damaged skin or scars. The unique fractional treatment results in a quicker healing process with long lasting results. It is one of the few procedures that has stood the test of time.
Fractional CO2 laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method for maximizing results and minimizing side effects.
Results expected include a very significant and noticeable reduction in age-spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer. The skin will continue to improve further for a period of 6 months after the last session provided proper skincare is followed and sun exposure is minimized. This is an economical approach as it would require multiple different lasers as well as fillers and botulinum toxin to achieve equivalent results ofLaser Skin Resurfacing.
During procedure, you will be given either a topical or local anesthetic. After the procedure, most patients describe the discomfort as similar to a mild sunburn or rubber snap which subsides quickly.
The technology is used worldwide and is quite safe in experienced hands. The main drawback of this procedure is the downtime. Depending on the area and the aggressiveness of the treatment, it will take 4- 7 days for the redness and swelling to settle.
Clinical studies suggest that 3-6 sessions of Laser Skin Resurfacingspaced at 4- 8-week intervals, produce significant results.
For acne scars, results achieved stay forever. For accidental cut scars, burn scar and postoperative scars results achieved are permanent. For skin rejuvenation and skin ageing they lasts for a year or so, once you have completed the sessions as suggested by Dr Manoj Agarwala.
