A Single Laser Treatment for a Younger Skin
The theory of skin resurfacing is simple: The treatment is intended to activate the normal healing process of the skin by causing regulated harm to the skin; allow it to increase the development of collagen and re-grow clean, wrinkled and blemish-free skin. The purpose of all skin resurfacing procedures is the same, but the methodology you use for resurfacing the skin can decide its aesthetic effect, the amount of danger involved and the duration of downtime during the operation.Interested readers can find more information about them at Cliffside Skin and Laser Center
The doctor “sands clear” the top layer of the skin in conventional dermabrasion (there are many common methods used in the treatment. Dermabrasion has several documented hazards (scarring, acne flare-ups or micro cysts, inflammation, etc.), complications (such as wounds induced by collagen overproduction, fractured capillaries, etc.) and involves multiple weeks of healing.
The older skin resurfacing method includes the usage of laser. There are currently two common strategies available: ablative lasers that vaporize the skin’s top layer, and non-ablative lasers that only superheat the skin’s top layers creating a “managed injury” to promote new skin development. Ablative resurfacing care of the laser skin is typically performed only and provides long-lasting effects. Resurfacing of the non-ablative laser skin can allow several treatments to produce the desired effects.
Until recently, the only laser technologies usable for skin resurfacing has been based on a single laser beam. Resurfacing ablative laser skin using a single laser beam provides spectacular and long lasting effects. However, it is costly (from $3,500 to $5,000); it has many significant risk factors: it requires general anesthesia, which may subject the patient to the possibility of infection which anxiety. Worse still, it takes a lengthy period, on average 30 days until the individual can leave home and return to work.
