Scar Removal Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing is a popular trusted facial rejuvenation aesthetic procedure performed by a trained dermatologist. The procedure involves using a laser machine (ablative or nonablative) to improve appearance of skin and treat minor flaws like fine wrinkles, uneven skin tone, mild to moderate acne scar marks.

What is
Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing can be of two types, ablative or Non ablative. Non-ablative laser is less aggressive approach where collagen growth stimulation happens, and procedure has a shorter recovery or down-time, but also results are less noticeable. Ablative lasers are more aggressive and hence all are not suitable candidates.

Ablative lasers can remove thin outer layer of skin (epidermis) and cause heating of dermis, the inner layer of skin. The procedure has a considerable down time but results are more dramatic and long lasting. Different lasers can be used, like CO2 laser or ErYag laser or NdYag.

What it treats

Ablative lasers can effectively reduce and improve upon fine lines, dispigmentation, damaged or poor textured skin, wrinkles, age sppots, mild to moderate acne scars and cause overall skin health improvement. Non ablative skin resurfacing also produces similar results in a more subtle way with less downtime.

Duration of the
treatment

Duration depends on the type of laser being used and desired objective. It can range from few minutes to hours. Also ablative and non ablative procedures can have different preparation and post procedure care instructions.

Preparation of case

Proper and thorough medical and dermatological history, type of skin, history of allergies, medications, keloidal tendencies, history of recent illness, and expectations of the patient and willingness for post procedure precautions, all has to be taken into consideration before planning the treatment.

Patient is fully cleaned with asepsitic measures, numbing cream is applied and after suitable time the procedure is started with due care of eyes. Pain sensitivity of the patient is to be kept in account during the procedure.

Potential risks
and side effects

Ablative laser procedure is not made for everyone, so proper patient selection is important to minimize side effects. Under trained hands possibility of side effects are less. But there is always chance of post procedure, redness, swelling, persistent pain, acne breakouts, herpes reactivation, change in skin colour, burn or scarring. Patient has to follow doctors advice and maintain good sun protection along with adviced creams and oral medications. Non ablative procedures are relatively less side effects.
