How Could Laser Resurfacing Benefit Me?
How Could Laser Resurfacing Benefit Me?
Laser skin resurfacing is a well-known laser treatment implemented for skin rejuvenation. It can be executed on a variety of treatment areas; this includes the face. Before a patient obtains Perth laser resurfacing, they often want to learn more about the treatment and its aftercare. To ensure you have all the information before your consultation at our clinic, we have listed some of the important information regarding this treatment below.
What Does Laser Resurfacing Do?
During a laser skin rejuvenation treatment, your cosmetic surgery will use a special thermal energy laser, which in turn can remove damaged layers of skin. Through the removal of these damaged layers, the body’s own healing process starts up and more collagen is produced. Evidently, this may provide the patient with a rejuvenated appearance or a reduction in skin abnormalities after the skin has healed.
Treatment with a CO2 laser, fractional laser, ablative laser or erbium laser can provide a treatment for sun damage, hyperpigmentation, sunspots, scars from cold sores, prolonged sun exposure, fine lines, skin tightening, stretch marks, freckles, and more. To determine if this treatment option is suitable for your particular skin concern, it is recommended to speak to Dr Lanzer or one of his associates.
Laser resurfacing can be combined with other skin treatments and cosmetic procedures, this includes the blepharoplasty and facelift. In these cases, the treatment is used to enhance the results obtained from cosmetic surgery.
Will I Notice Results From Laser Resurfacing Immediately?
Many patients who visit The Dr Lanzer Clinic notice some of the results from this treatment immediately. That being said, it is important to know that the skin does require some degree of healing after the treatment. And while there is no actual downtime, patients can experience side effects. So, it is therefore possible that you may not notice any results until you had some time to heal.
The unique part of skin resurfacing treatment is that these cosmetic procedures trigger the body’s ability to produce collagen. It is this collagen that will leave your face smoother and tighter. Of course, collagen is not solely produced by your body during the treatment. For your body to heal, collagen is produced for some time later. Therefore, it is important to give your body some time before you evaluate the final results.

Could I Obtain Laser Resurfacing For Skin Abnormalities?
A large portion of patients visiting The Dr Lanzer Clinic for laser resurfacing do so to address skin abnormalities. While not all skin abnormalities can be treated with laser resurfacing on dermis and epidermis (depending on the type of laser energy or laser technology used), a large portion can; this includes problems such as deep acne scarring, light to medium acne scars and pigmentation (problems with pigment on the skin, often on the face, décolletage, or hands).
Many patients who obtain laser resurfacing are having problems with acne scarring; this is a type of scarring that occurs when someone encounters continuous and repetitive acne outbreaks. As a result, it can make the skin seem older or irregular. With laser resurfacing, acne scarring can be reduced.
As we mentioned earlier, pigmentation is another problem patient could obtain laser resurfacing for. A patient suffers from pigmentation when there are discolorations and darker patches visible on the treatment area; this can appear on the face, but other areas could also be susceptible to this problem. Through laser resurfacing, the cosmetic surgery can remove the damaged layer of skin and encourage the growth of new healthier skin.
Some patients also visit The Dr Lanzer Clinic to improve their complexion; e.g. when the skin seems a little lacklustre. After a treatment with laser resurfacing, patients could obtain an improved complexion and a clearer skin overall.
To maximise the result from laser resurfacing, patients often find it helpful to get a new skincare routine based on the recommendations of their dermatologist. Different skin types have different requirements. So, it can be useful to speak to your dermatologist after you have several layers of the skin treated with laser resurfacing.
Which Laser Does Dr Lanzer Use?
Dr Lanzer regularly uses the erbium laser, but this does not mean that other lasers cannot be used during your treatment. In fact, the type of laser that will be used during your procedure will be subject to the problem you are trying to correct, your skin tone, and your overall skin quality. During your initial consultation, you can easily inform about the type of laser that could be most suitable for your treatment.
Is Laser Resurfacing In Perth Safe?
Laser resurfacing is a procedure that has been executed for years and the chance of complications are relatively rare. However, the chances of complications are not completely ruled out, so it is important to choose an experienced cosmetic surgery who has executed many of these treatments in the past.
Before you have your procedure, you will be given more information about the possible complications that could occur after laser resurfacing. Complications that could arise include infection and abnormal healing, so it is important to be familiar with the signs of such complications. If you believe you may be encountering a complication during your recovery time, it is important to contact The Dr Lanzer Clinic for a follow-up appointment as soon as possible.
The large majority of laser resurfacing procedures is done with a local anaesthetic, but a general anaesthetic is possible when the procedure is combined with another cosmetic surgery procedure such as the facelift. Patients can experience some side effects after their procedure, this includes pinkness of the skin, numbness and some mild swelling. As the new skin starts to form and new collagen is created, it is common for the patient to experience some changes in skin texture in the treated area, which may involve skin peeling. Once the skin peeling ends, the patient will experience much brighter and younger looking skin post-treatment.
Please note that the recovery time and the side-effects you experience after your treatment can be dependent on the type of laser used during your procedure. Therefore, always inform about the side-effects that commonly occur with the type of laser used during your laser resurfacing treatment.
