What Does Laser Resurfacing Do To Your Skin?

Many patients who come to The Dr Lanzer Clinic for laser resurfacing are interested in how the procedure produces its unique effects. They also wonder how the laser interacts with the skin, as it is a treatment that they are considering themselves.

At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, we are dedicated to providing patients with accurate information regarding treatment. We provide loads of information pages on our available treatments, but also some before and after photographs many patients find useful. Today, we will take a closer look at how laser resurfacing interacts with the skin.

Does Skin Tone Influence Your Eligibility For Laser Resurfacing?

Patients with various skin tones can obtain the benefits of laser resurfacing. That being said, a specific laser will be selected by the skin tone you have; this because certain lasers are more effective on fair or darker skin tones. Therefore, it is important to get an evaluation by Dr Lanzer before you have your laser resurfacing treatment.

Most surgeons will state that laser resurfacing can be easier on a patient with a fair skin tone; this due to the fact that lasers tend to provide the best result on lighter skin tones. One of the problems with darker skin tones is that the laser can interact with melanocytes. As a result, pigmentation can occur, leading the skin to turn somewhat brown. To ensure this does not occur, surgeons have to use a different kind of laser in patients with a darker skin tone.

Patients with a light skin tone tend to have their treatment with the so-called erbium laser. The erbium laser interacts with water inside the skin, subsequently making the occurrence of burns less likely. For patients with a darker skin tone, the cosmetic surgeon will use a fractional laser. So, both types of patients can have the treatment, albeit with a different laser. So, the interaction between laser and the skin can be different too.

Is Laser Resurfacing A Suitable Anti-Ageing Treatment?

Laser resurfacing can create an anti-ageing effect; this considering the fact that the laser will strategically remove certain layers of the skin. Since is this considered as “damage” to the skin, the body responds by starting up its collagen production to repair itself. It is this collagen that can smooth out lines and wrinkles and give the skin a rejuvenated appearance.

Because of its rejuvenated influence on the skin, it is not uncommon for patients to choose an additional treatment such as laser resurfacing; this on top of any surgical procedure they are having at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. We do have to mention that not all patients require this additional treatment, it all depends on the requirements of the patient. Common procedures that are combined with laser resurfacing include the blepharoplasty and the facelift.

Why Should I Look At Case Studies Of Laser Resurfacing Before I Come In For My Appointment?

We find that the case studies on the website can be quite educational for some patients. Even though it is a non-surgical procedure, it is still a cosmetic procedure that should be considered carefully by patients. In order to do that, you need the right information.

The Dr Lanzer Clinic provides a treasure trove of information to patients; this includes about laser resurfacing. Our case studies are certainly a part of that information provision, as they provide patient with before and after photographs as well as detailed info about the treatment.

When looking at the case studies on our website, we ask patients to remember that photographs can vary in colour; this is due to the different colours our computer monitors can display. Some monitors are crisper and clearer than others, so we ask patients to take this into consideration.

We also tell patients to see our case studies as examples, and not as results that can be obtained through the treatment. We like to remind everyone that the human body is unique; this means that each patient will receive results unique to them. While we can provide an estimate, the results are always individual for each patient.
