Laser Skin Resurfacing
Pre operation advice for LASER skin resurfacing treatment
During initial consultations your needs are assessed including the areas that you want resurfaced, and the extent of the correction to your skin that you require. You will be asked to express your concerns about your appearance and to discuss your goals & expectations. Your medical history will be reviewed and a physical examination will be conducted.
Mr Golchin will advise you on the appropriateness of laser skin treatment. At the About Face Clinic our philosophy is that laser skin resurfacing should be done carefully and only on specific areas. If a skin resurfacing is performed too deeply, there is the possibility of scar formation.
RISKS OF LASER SKIN COSMETIC TREATMENTS
Mild redness of the operated region is normal for about 4- 8 weeks following the procedure, but is effectively concealed by makeup once the skin has healed after 10 days. In some cases, it may be prolonged for several months or be more pronounced than normal. Redness of the operation site is necessary. In fact if there is no erythema, then there will be a poor effect to the treatment.
Changes in skin pigmentation:
Hyperpigmentation (increased pigmentation) is an irritating complication, but will eventually clear in all affected patients. It rarely occurs in people with fair skin. High-risk patients are pre-treated with creams.
This is a very rare complication of laser resurfacing. It tends to occur more frequently in certain areas of the face for example peri-orally, which is a very dynamic area. Mr Golchin does not favour procedures such as total facial laser resurfacing as these cases are at risk of potentially serious complications.
