Resurfacing - lifting and non-surgical skin
Face resurfacing is an interesting alternative to botox or facelift in selected cases.
Laser face resurfacing is a solution recommended in particular to people complaining about flabby facial skin. To the greatest extent, this treatment allows you to get rid of the problem of gray and sallow skin, which is dull.
Thanks to it, they cease to be visible:
- sun discoloration
- acne scars
- pigmentation changes
- surgical scars
Resurfacing involves removing the top layer of skin. The laser affects the skin causing a thermal effect.
In places where the laser beam reaches, the epidermis and part of the dermis evaporate. This way minimal damage is created. Between them, the skin remains undamaged, which significantly accelerates the healing and convalescence process and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. It is a fractional laser therapy technique.
Before the procedure, the skin area is anesthetized. Resurfacing is not painful, although a slight burning, stinging, pinching or warmth may be felt. Typically, it takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the surface of the skin. After the treatment, a regenerating protective preparation is applied to the treated areas. There is no need to observe the patient after the procedure.
Full convalescence lasts about a week, but patients usually return to professional activity after 2-3 days. Immediately after the treatment, the skin is often red and swollen, so this should be taken into account in everyday functioning. Make-up can be done at the earliest 24 hours after the procedure, and for a week the patient should avoid activities that contribute to overheating and congestion of the skin.

1. How long do the effects last after the treatment?
The duration of the effects after laser face resurfacing is relatively long (even several years) but varies from person to person.
2. How to avoid complications after the procedure?
Complications after laser facial resurfacing are most common in patients with dark skin and those burdened with additional risk factors (including chronic diseases).

3. Recommendations after the procedure
During the first 24 hours after the laser face resurfacing procedure, the skin should be cleansed 4-5 times and each time a layer of greasy ointment, such as petroleum jelly, should be applied to it, it is best not to use creams with active substances, as they may additionally irritate the damaged skin
