Laser Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing removes the outer layer of the skin where much of the damage caused by skin is harboured. In addition a controlled amount of heat is sent into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate cells there to lay down new collagen and improve the texture of the skin.

Laser resurfacing is good for improving lines and wrinkles especially the finer lines that are not related to facial expressions. It can be used for acne scarring and to remove in one step many of the signs of photo-ageing such as rough spots and scaliness of the skin. Many of the brown discolourations of the skin will also disappear with this procedure.

Laser resurfacing can be by means of a laser micro peel done in the office under local anesthesia or a more intense resurfacing done in the operating theater under a general anesthesia. Which is best for you will depend on your available recovery time and the severity of the changes to your skin.

In general, healing from laser resurfacing takes approximately a week. There will be some persistent redness after this time which can be hidden using the sunblock makeups available.

For further information please visit the site of Dr. Terrance Scamp, or phone our office for a consult.
