What can laser skin resurfacing treat?
Laser skin resurfacing is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, stretch marks, skin pigmentation and aging. One of the great advantages of the treatment is its precision. The laser can be used to target specific areas of the face and body, reaching places other treatments may miss.
Laser resurfacing can be used on the neck, chest, arms and hands, but is predominantly used on the face to:
- Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of age
- Tighten the skin
- Even out skin tone, discolouration, or pigmentation
- Smooth rough skin
- Repair sun damage
- Reduce the appearance of scars (including acne scars)
Book a consultation with our Bradford clinic to discuss your individual circumstances and find out if laser skin resurfacing could achieve your desired results.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of an intense beam of thermal energy; at the Bradford MySkyn clinic we use the Thunder MT laser.
The laser penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, warming the tissue and causing trauma in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. The body will naturally produce collagen and elastin fibres, which are responsible for giving the skin its firm and supple structure.
The treatment has an exfoliating effect; vaporising damaged skin, encouraging cell regeneration and creating healthier skin. Signs of scarring are eradicated, with long-lasting results.
Similar treatments to laser resurfacing include chemical peels, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion. We recommend that you book a consultation with one of our Bradford-based physicians to see which treatment would be the best fit for your skin. It could be that a facelift would be more suitable if you are concerned about particularly deep wrinkles and sagging.
Laser Skin Resurfacing at MySkyn Clinic in Bradford
During your consultation, one of our qualified skin specialists will examine your skin to determine the parameters for your laser resurfacing treatment. Together you will develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and could include more than one treatment session.
For laser skin resurfacing, you will be in and out of our Bradford clinic in one day. The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. General anaesthetic is used for treatments that require high-strength lasers and minister to large areas of the face. In the case of general anaesthetic, you will be requested to abstain from eating or drinking anything several hours prior to the procedure taking place.
When your physician has ensured that you are comfortable and confident to go ahead, treatment will begin. If the skin around your eyes is being treated and you are under local anaesthetic, you may be asked to wear an eye shield to protect your vision.
Your physician will be in control of the laser beam at all times, directing it to the targeted areas and regulating how deep it penetrates.
To finish the treatment, your face will be dressed with an ointment to promote healing.
Aftercare and Recovery
There is some discomfort associated with laser skin resurfacing treatment. It is likely that your skin will feel raw and swollen at first, in which case you should take standard paracetamol or ibuprofen to eradicate the pain. Icing your face with a wrapped ice pack and keeping it raised at night can also help. We advise that you avoid direct exposure to sunlight until any redness has completely disappeared.
Redness may take longer than expected to go away (2-6 months). Your skin colour could grow lighter or darker after the procedure. If you’ve had a cold sore in the past, this could return. There is also a risk of infection following the treatment, so it is important to keep an eye on your recovery. We will give you detailed aftercare instructions so that you can cope with each case if and when it should occur.
If you have any questions or need support at any stage during your recovery, MySkyn will be available to contact at any time.
