What Can Laser Resurfacing Do For Me?

Request Consultation

Laser resurfacing Sydney is a treatment that is often obtained at our clinic, since laser resurfacing has countless benefits for the skin. The treatment is quite popular among patients who want to reduce some visible signs of ageing. It also has benefits for the treatment of skin abnormalities; this includes anything from acne scarring to pigmentation.

Patients who want to obtain a treatment such as laser resurfacing often look for more information before their initial appointment at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. To ensure you can find accurate information on laser resurfacing quickly, we have listed some important facts about this treatment below.

How Is Laser Resurfacing Executed?

Laser resurfacing is executed with a special laser; this laser tackles a specific layer of the skin and causes localised damage; this causes the body to start producing more collagen. Naturally, this production of collagen has a positive influence on the skin.

There are many patients who could benefit from a treatment such as laser resurfacing. Often, patients who want to reduce some of the obvious signs of ageing on the face, neck, and hands; this may include wrinkles and fine lines. Patients with skin abnormalities could benefit too, as the treatment can reduce acne scarring and similar problems.

Which Laser Will Be Used For My Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

Patients can encounter various lasers when it comes down to laser resurfacing. Sometimes, a cosmetic surgeon prefers a specific type of laser. Other times, the cosmetic surgeon selects a laser based on the patient’s skin tone and their requirements.

Common lasers that are used for laser resurfacing include the fractional carbon dioxide laser and the erbium laser. Each of these lasers has its own benefits. We must also mention that certain lasers might be more suitable for your skin tone than others.

A laser that is often used for patients with a fair skin tone is the erbium laser. It is effective for the reduction of common signs of ageing as well as acne scarring. Of course, the suitability of this laser for acne scarring will depend on the severity of the problem; this is why it is important to speak to Dr Lanzer during your initial appointment.

Since there are various lasers used for laser resurfacing Sydney, patients must be aware that the type of laser can influence your recovery time or the amount of treatments you need. For example, the non-ablative laser is less harsh on the skin and has a shorter recovery time than the ablative laser. That being said, multiple treatments are usually required to obtain the same results. Of course, recovery time is not solely subject to the equipment used during your procedure, since each patient heals in his or her own time.

How Long Does It Take To Execute Laser Resurfacing Sydney?

The duration of a laser resurfacing treatment is subject to many different factors. Firstly, the size of the treatment area can influence the overall duration of the procedure. For example, if you want an area such as the abdomen treated with laser resurfacing Sydney, it could take considerably longer than if you solely treat the neck.

If you would like an estimate of your procedure duration, we recommend speaking to Dr Lanzer during your initial appointment. After an evaluation, Dr Lanzer can determine how long your laser resurfacing procedure is expected to take.

Will I Experience Any Side-Effects After My Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

Most patients will experience some side-effects after their laser resurfacing treatment. One of the most common side-effects is skin redness; this is quite common as the laser will evaporate or warm up some of the layers of the skin. However, skin redness will dissipate over time and can be covered up with some mineral makeup during your recovery.

Patients should be aware of the fact that their skin will be somewhat sensitive after their laser resurfacing treatment. Because of this, prolonged sun exposure is not recommended. Patients should also ensure their skin is protect sufficiently against the sunlight when they head out the door.

In addition to following the post-treatment guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic, patients can also benefit from adopting a good skincare routine. There are various products that can prove beneficial after your laser resurfacing treatment, so be sure to speak to Dr Lanzer or a member of his medical team for more information about your post-treatment skincare routine.
