Laser Resurfacing in Sydney

The laser resurfacing treatment is similar to the fractional laser treatment. It is designed to help men and women with the reduction of wrinkles, scars and other imperfections.

Procedure: Removal of superficial layers of skin with a laser causing the skin to heal smoother and either removing or incorporating skin defects or lesions.
Length: Depends on size of area to be treated – a few seconds for individual skin lesions to an hour.
Anesthesia: Local anaesthetic cream or injection, possibly with sedation or general anaesthetic.
Side Effects: Temporary skin darkening. Permanent skin lightening/loss of natural skin pigment. Scarring.
Recovery: Weeping from open wound surface for 2 days. Swelling mostly subsides in first week or two but may persist minimally for manyweeks. Redness maximal in first 2 weeks, but may persist for several weeks.
Duration: Facial movements will form wrinkles again over time.
