What is laser facial rejuvenation? Why is facial rejuvenation done?
Resurfacing the face using a laser to improve skin’s appearance or correct minor flaws is known as laser facial rejuvenation. It is done for facial skin issues like:
Uneven skin tone
Damage due to sun
Scars due to acne
Laser facial rejuvenation treatment can help get rid of these issues or treat them in such a way as to reduce visibility.
What to do if you’re preparing to get a laser facial rejuvenation?
At Skinfinity, our experts will do a thorough checkup before suggesting you to go for a laser facial rejuvenation. This will include knowing about your medical history. This can include knowing about your past and current medications, any previous cosmetic surgeries you might have had, etc.
After this, our highly-experienced dermatologists will perform a physical examination of your face. This process consists of analyzing the tone and thickness of your skin so that the experts can decide the intensity of the treatment required. The area that needs to be treated will be thoroughly inspected for various physical aspects.
The third step we follow at Skinfinity is a proper discussion about what you want to achieve through the treatment. The experts will tell you the risks involved and the results you can expect. This will help you make an informed decision.
Once you’re done with these steps, we would recommend a few things you need to do before your laser facial rejuvenation. This includes taking medication if required, stopping smoking for a while, and avoiding direct sun exposure. For more details on sun protection, get in touch with your doctor and they’ll guide you.
What to expect from the laser facial rejuvenation: During and after the treatment
The treatment requires a laser beam that is directed toward your skin. For this procedure, the staff at Skinfinity might have to sedate your face or numb the area that is supposed to undergo the treatment.
The intense laser beam will destroy the epidermis of the skin (the outer layer) and heat the dermis (underlying skin) which will enhance collagen production in due course. The whole process can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the area that is being treated.
After the procedure, you might experience:
You might feel that the treated skin is itchy, dry, and swollen after the laser facial rejuvenation.
Experts at Skinfinity will apply a thick gel or ointment to the area that has been treated. This will seal the area and prevent air or water to damage the raw skin.
Doctors might recommend you to take painkillers or apply ice packs.
What to do after the procedure? What results can you expect?
After the procedure, take the necessary precautions and care of your skin as suggested by the doctor which includes not using cosmetic products, protecting your skin from direct exposure, etc.
Once your skin starts to heal, which can take a few weeks or a month, you’ll be able to see that the skin's appearance has improved. The effect of laser facial rejuvenation can last for years depending on your skin type. Skinfinity highly recommends using sun protection of at least SPF 30 after the process.
