Sunlight, skin conditions, aging and even heredity may all induce skin irregularities on the facial area and in other places on the body. For instance textural abnormalities like fine lines and wrinkles as well as acne scarring, pigmentation modifications such as freckles and sunspots, or visible blood vessels.
Additionally, skin may likely lose some condition, become less toned, with particular regions of the physique may develop cellulite conditions.
Ailments which can be treated with skin rejuvenation and resurfacing include:
- Static Fine Lines & Wrinkles: These kinds of wrinkles are noticeable permanently and do not change in appearance with facial movements.
- Dynamic wrinkles: Expression lines that appear as folds whenever the face is not shifting, and deepen with facial motions as well as with expressions
- Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots, as well as various other discolored patches of skin are the result from direct exposure of sunlight.
- Scars: As the result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), pitted, discolored, or have raised borders
- Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood-filled blisters or even a constant flush of facial redness
- Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structures (collagen and elastin fibers) that result in a loss of skin firmness or the development of cellulite
Erbium laser resurfacing (Ablative) – This procedure offers the best results for rejuvenating the skin. This technique is an ablative technique and literally takes off total removal of the upper layers of skin.
Ablative resurfacing – vaporization; ablative resurfacing is interpreted as vaporizing or eliminating the skin being treated. The vaporization occurs immediately upon contact with the laser. Ablation is caused by heat. Depending on the laser, there is always a non- ablative injury surrounding the ablative injury.
It is the optimal approach to dealing with aging skin. Laser resurfacing can target sun- damaged skin through obliteration as well as stimulate new collagen. It restores and rejuvenates the skin, removes sun-damage, Dark Age spots or sun spots and of course; mild, moderate, and even severe wrinkles. These wrinkles can occur over the entire face, but are often noticed around the mouth.
Hypo pigmentation- Skin treated with an ablative laser can lose their natural pigment. This is not to be confused with the obliteration of dark age spots/sun spots and the natural sun bronzing that occurs with aging. Although hypo pigmentation may occur with aggressive Erbium resurfacing, it is much less common and less severe than with previous methods such as CO2.
Prolonged redness – Redness occurs as a natural response to heat and is to be expected. The more aggressive the treatment, the more redness to expect. Scarring may occur with any technology in which heat is produced such as a laser, but is very rare. Infection – is also rare with laser resurfacing and all patients undergoing ablative resurfacing will be given anti biotics.
Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation PIH is a condition in which the melanocytes in the dermis pour out melanin pigment in response to inflammation. This occurs more commonly in darker skin types. This condition usually fades over time, but can be treated with topical medicines to hasten recovery.
