What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Skin Resurfacing is a procedure that involves removing the superficial layer of the skin with the help of a laser. As the skin heals, the new collagen is laid making the skin healthier, supple and vibrant.

Redefine offers the Skin Resurfacing in Hyderabad.

What type of Laser is used for skin resurfacing?

At Redefine You, we use Co2 Fractional laser that is known for providing long lasting effect. It stimulates the collagens and improves the skin tone and texture. It also works well on sun damage, pre-cancerous growth, acne scars and fine lines

What are the conditions that are addressed by Skin Resurfacing?

Skin Resurfacing can address problems like

  • Wrinkles and sun-damage
  • Crow’s feet, wrinkles around the laugh line, frown and the thought line
  • Brown spots or blotches on the skin
  • Precancerous growths on the skin
  • Chicken pox and acne scars
  • Superficial scars resulting from any injury
Who makes a good candidate for Skin Resurfacing?

People from both genders are eligible for this procedure if they are adult. Non-smokers with good overall health are eligible for Skin Resurfacing. However if you are suffering from any active skin allergies or have an open cut on your skin, you might be advised to keep away from the procedure till the problem heals completely. People with very dark skin colour may not be good candidates for skin resurfacing.

Is Skin resurfacing painful?

Yes, the procedure involves a certain amount of pain. However, you will be given medications prior to the surgery to minimize the level of discomfort.

How long does the procedure take? Does it involve anaesthesia?

The time may vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the area and type of surgery needed. Yes, it requires anaesthesia; local anaesthesia is more predominant though general anaesthesia is not rare.

What to expect immediately after the procedure?

You will have medicated ointments all-over your face, in case some cases bandage or dressing tapes may also be applied. Your face will have redness and swelling. These will ease out within a week’s time when the new skin layer starts appearing. However, your skin might appear to be pink for several weeks till the new skin layer regenerates completely.

Our team of experts at Redefine You will help you with your post-operative skin care regime after the procedure.

What is the recovery period?

Though it might take a couple of months to witness the final result, the actual recovery period for skin resurfacing is estimated to be 7 to 15 days. You can resume you daily actives within a week or two. However, it is mandatory to talk to your doctor before go back to your daily chores.

Is the effect permanent?

It isn’t permanent but with Co2 fractional laser it definitely is long-lasting. Our skin keeps on aging, so wrinkles are obvious. However, wrinkles in some areas appear faster than the other. But despite this, skin resurfacing will help you have a better skin quality and skin texture.
