Wrinkles start to develop, sun damage appears on your face, and you may find that your skin is less elastic than before. Laser skin resurfacing can help restore your complexion by removing wrinkles, sun and browns spots, acne scars and a generally ages looking skin. You can be back to enjoying smooth, flawless skin in as little as a week with this effective treatment.
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to treat wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, acne scars on the face or body such as the chest. This procedure can be used on its own to achieve a younger appearance or as part of a surgical procedure such as a mini facelift. Laser skin resurfacing works by using a laser beam to remove the top layer of the skin.
Over time, your body will naturally shed these old cells, and new ones will grow in their place. A series of laser resurfacing treatments can further improve the health of your skin by promoting collagen production. Collagen is a protein found in several areas of the body, including the skin, and it provides strength and elasticity.
You may need only one treatment for best results, but most people choose to undergo several treatments.
Many factors can influence the outcome of laser skin resurfacing, such as:
Results begin to show after just one treatment, but you can improve your appearance even further by undergoing several treatments. Your doctor will recommend the best option for your particular situation.
What are the risks associated with laser skin resurfacing?
There are virtually no risks associated with laser skin resurfacing. The only issue to be aware of is the potential for infection, which can occur if your surgical site is exposed to bacteria. This risk can be effectively managed by following all post-operative instructions we provide.
What is the recovery time from laser skin resurfacing?
You can return to work or your normal activities right away after laser skin resurfacing. Minimal downtime is required for this treatment.
During the first week, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be effectively managed with medication such as ibuprofen. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for caring for your skin during the recovery process.
When will I see the results from laser skin resurfacing?
Results are visible about a week after, but they will continue to improve for several weeks or months. The positive effects of laser skin resurfacing will last for several years, as natural collagen production is stimulated to repair and rejuvenate your skin. Your surgeon will discuss results with you during your consultation.
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost in the UK?
The cost of laser skin resurfacing will depend on which treatment areas are being treated.
