Laser resurfacing refers to a treatment for reducing facial wrinkles and other irregularities in the skin, such as blemishes or acne scars.
Many men and women who have had severe acne during their lives are often left with deep, depressed scars that do not go away without treatment. Acne scars leave profound negative psychological effects on any individual. Acne scar improvement requires special combination of treatments. At Revive Clinic, we have a variety of advanced laser treatments to address nearly all types of acne scars.
These lasers can also be combined with Med chemical peels or micro surgical procedures: Punch excision surgery is an option for individuals with deep “ice pick” scars that have not improved with laser surgery. Subcision is a procedure that involves using a needle to get underneath the scar disconnecting the fibres under the scar. Chemical Peels: for mild to moderate acne scarring. A glycolic Peel or Trichloroacetic acid Peel is used.
Dermal Fillers filling-material injections are also used for the treatment of acne scars.
At Revive Clinic, depending upon the type and extent of scars, dermatologist would decide whether you require a single or a combination of treatments. We have all these advanced treatment modalities available to fulfil your own personal goals.
After the laser procedure, the doctor will bandage the area which has been treated. You will have to clean the treated region four to five times a day. Then, apply an ointment, such as petroleum jelly, to prevent the formation of scabs. Usually, the areas heal in about 10 to 21 days, based on the condition that was treated.
You might also experience swelling after laser skin resurfacing. The doctor may prescribe steroids for reducing the swelling around your eyes. Applying an ice pack on the treated region also helps to reduce swelling in the first 24 to 48 hours following laser resurfacing
