Fractional Co2 and Erbium-YAG lasers are used to rejuvenate the face. This skin rejuvenation method improves the appearance and firmness of the skin. It is also possible for laser surgery to heal and treat various surgical scars.
Fractional laser is a new method in skin regeneration and stimulation of collagen fibers, which by thermal evaporation of columns from the skin tissue to the desired depth, without damaging the areas between us, increases the firmness of the skin and eliminates fine wrinkles. With the use of fractional lasers, patients will experience shorter recovery periods and fewer Possible side effects.
Duration of action
The duration of laser skin rejuvenation varies depending on the location and extent of the area being treated, but takes approximately 10 to 45 minutes. The number of laser treatment sessions and intervals varies from person to person depending on skin color, age, and type of lesion, and varies from 1 to 4 sessions at intervals of at least one month.
Laser skin rejuvenation is possible by local anesthesia or induction of IV Sedation.
Inpatient / outpatient status
The skin rejuvenation laser is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require hospitalization afterwards.
Possible side effects
The treated area becomes swollen, red, and sometimes sore within a few days to a week after laser skin rejuvenation, which the patient should refrain from manipulating. Regular use of prescription medications can help reduce the length of this period. Transient sensitivity to sunlight or cosmetics is also a possible side effect of laser skin rejuvenation, which may take several months.
Possible side effects of laser skin rejuvenation include:
- Hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration)
- Hypopigmentation (pale skin)
- Viral infection
- Bacterial infection
After laser skin rejuvenation, you can return to work within a few days. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least four weeks. You should not be exposed to direct sunlight for at least 2 months after treatment. It is necessary to use sunscreen in the prescribed amount and intervals. Skin discoloration and tanning are prohibited from 6 months to 6 months after fractional laser.
The results of laser skin rejuvenation are long lasting, but it should be noted that the skin aging process and the development of new wrinkles are constantly evolving.
