Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that gives evident results in scar reduction. It is designed to scrape away the dead skin cells to reduce scars and blemishes. The laser light basically allows new and healthy skin (collagen) to develop thereby revealing a new skin layer which is smooth in texture.
Types of lasers
There are mainly two types of lasers for managing acne scars
Ablative laser treatment manages and diminishes acne scars by shedding thin layers of the dead skin. On the other hand, non-ablative is a less invasive procedure which treats acne scars by stimulating collagen production without actually removing the skin.
The former include carbon dioxide (CO2) or Erbium laser and treat superficial skin concerns as these are designed to remove the upper layer of the skin.
In contrast, non-ablative lasers don't remove any layer of the skin. At Aster Dermatology, we offer the best laser resurfacing treatment in Gurgaon supported by the most advanced laser techniques. Some of the most commonly used non-ablative lasers are pulsed light and fractional lasers.
Ideal candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing
One should consider this procedure in case of aging issues, sun-damage and acne-related skincare concerns, especially acne scars that aren’t improving with over-the-counter (OTC) medications.
Laser skin resurfacing works excellently on acne and acne scar reduction but can be employed to treat one or more of the following skin concerns-
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing performed?
Step 1 - After careful examination, the patient's skin will be prepared for the procedure which also includes cleansing.
Step 2 - A topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted area. This will help reduce the pain and allow the patient to be more comfortable during the procedure.
Step 3 - Then, the selected laser is moved slowly on the skin. It only takes a few minutes
Step 4 - The process triggers the body's natural healing response by targeting the outer layer of the skin and heating the deeper layer in the dermis. This in turn promotes collagen production and reduces the visibility of acne scars. It also improves the skin tone and elasticity. Therefore, new skin is smoother and firmer.
At Aster Dermatology, our skin specialists may employ laser skin resurfacing procedure as a single treatment or the patient can be suggested a combination of other skin treatments available at our clinic, if required.
