Skin Laser Resurfacing / Dermabrasion
Laser resurfacing (laser peel, laser vaporization, and/or lasabrasion) reduces wrinkles, scars, aging, acne, and blemishes by removing layers of skin with a precision laser. In turn, the new healing skin cells give off a younger, tighter appearance.
Dermabrasion is another similar technique, but instead of lasers uses a wire brush or a rough-edged diamond wheel (otherwise known as a fraise or burr) to remove the upper layers of skin. The brush or burr super-exfoliates your skin, leaving the now newer healing skin cells to grow and replace any damaged skin. There are some cases where a freezing (cryogenic) spray is used for deep abrasions or if the anesthetic doesn’t make the skin firm enough.
Depending on the treatment in either case, the doctor may choose to use sedatives or a local anesthesia to numb the areas. A full-face treatment can take up to two hours, but is not a procedure where the patient would need to stay the night. In most cases, one small area is treated at a time.
Healing can take anywhere from 10 to 21 days, depending on the problem that was treated initially.
