Vital Information About Laser Resurfacing In Sydney
Laser resurfacing is a relatively popular procedure in Australia. It is one of the more advanced skin rejuvenation treatments, which is aimed at the treatment of both superficial and deep skin problems. So, in addition to being used as an anti-ageing treatment, laser resurfacing is also popular for skin abnormalities such as acne scarring and pigmentation.
Patients who are interested in laser resurfacing can find more detailed information about the treatment on this page. There are also several case studies patients can refer to for some practical info.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
The principle of laser resurfacing is relatively simple. Lasers used during this treatment will use so-called thermal energy; this means the laser will not ablate the skin but penetrate the skin instead. By doing so, a cosmetic surgery can tackle some common yet deep-rooted skin problems.
During a laser resurfacing treatment, your cosmetic surgery will aim a beam of thermal energy on damaged skin. The damaged skin is vaporised and removed, which in turn starts your body’s collagen production. As a result, the damaged skin is replaced with new and healthy skin.
How Long Until I See Results From Laser Resurfacing Treatment?
Most patients will notice an immediate difference after laser resurfacing. However, it is important to mention that the results obtained from laser resurfacing are somewhat progressive in nature; this means that results will become more apparent the months following treatment.
The reason for the progressive nature of laser resurfacing can be found in the production of collagen. As the skin gets “damaged” during the treatment, the production of collagen continues to repair the skin. Therefore, it takes the body several months to repair the deeper layers of collagen and provide even more results over the course of time.

What Skin Problems Can Be Addressed With Laser Resurfacing?
There are a variety of skin problems that could benefit from laser resurfacing in Sydney treatment. Below, we have explained some of the common problems where laser resurfacing could prove beneficial.
One of the reasons why patients choose laser resurfacing is scarring; this is often caused by persistent and long-term acne outbreaks. Through laser resurfacing, a cosmetic surgery can reduce the appearance of acne scarring.
Another skin problem that could be remedied with laser resurfacing is pigmentation. When a patient suffers from this particular problem, they will encounter darker, discoloured patches on their skin; this may appear on the face as well as other areas of the body. Laser resurfacing can reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
Naturally, laser resurfacing is also an effective anti-ageing treatment. Much like the way laser resurfacing reduces the appearance of skin abnormalities such as scarring and pigmentation, it also reduces visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines. Therefore, many patients can obtain laser resurfacing as a standalone anti-ageing treatment.
Finally, the last problem that could be addressed with laser resurfacing is an uneven skin tone. If you suffer from a dull or lacklustre skin, laser resurfacing can produce a more even and brighter complexion.
What Lasers Are Used For Laser Resurfacing?
There are three lasers that are commonly used for laser resurfacing; this includes the erbium laser, Fraxel laser, and carbon dioxide laser. Each laser used during laser resurfacing has its own purpose, so it is always a good idea to get more informed about these lasers.
The erbium laser is commonly used for superficial skin abnormalities; this includes fine lines and wrinkles. While the laser is accompanied by a relatively short recovery time, most patient will require more than one treatment to achieve the desired results.
Another laser that can be used during laser resurfacing is the Fraxel laser; this type of laser can be used to treat common signs of ageing as well as acne scarring. The laser is also implemented for problems with pigmentation and an uneven skin tone.
The final laser, the carbon dioxide laser, is not used as often as the previously mentioned laser; this since the carbon dioxide laser can penetrate the skin a lot deeper. Therefore, this laser can be used for the treatment of deeper acne scars, lines, and wrinkles.
