There are several ways to achieve skin revitalisation through skin resurfacing. At our Singapore clinic, we rely on the restorative action of lasers on Resurfacing and Acne to eliminate stubborn acne scars and uneven pigmentation layer by layer.
In our quest for youthful and radiant-looking skin, we want solutions that are effective and reliable. Laser resurfacing stimulates the body’s natural healing process for new and healthy tissues to replace affected areas. Clear and radiant skin allows you to skip the heavy make-up to conceal imperfections!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. How do laser Resurfacing and Acne treatments prevent acne and treat acne scars?
Laser Resurfacing and Acne treatment is suitable for acne scars, atrophic scars, and wrinkles by stimulating the formation of new collagen. Our non-ablative laser resurfacing uses heat to stimulate collagen regeneration and improve skin tone and elasticity. It eliminates superficial damaged skin cells which aids in preventing another breakout, and at this rate of renewal, dark spots will eventually become lighter.
2. Who are suitable patients for laser skin resurfacing?
The treatment is suited best for those people who have acne scars, uneven skin pigmentation, fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, forehead or mouth. It is not advised for those who have heavily pigmented skin, although there are other skin resurfacing options for such cases.
3. What can I expect from this treatment?
Laser skin resurfacing can still be used to treat active acne inflammation and excessive oil production. It dramatically reduces the size and occurrence of nodular and cystic lesions. The procedure may create some degree of tenderness in the treatment area, but we can apply a topical numbing cream to offset any discomfort. Redness and itching are not uncommon after this procedure as it is simply a skin reaction to the heat of the laser, but it will also resolve in a few days.
4. How should I prepare for laser skin resurfacing?
It is advised that you avoid heavy sun exposure or tanning a few weeks before treatment. Deep facial peel procedures at least 4 weeks prior to treatment should also be avoided. Medications that cause photosensitivity should not be taken hours before treatment.
5. How can I make sure that I get good results?
Who performs your laser resurfacing treatment has a tremendous influence on your results. Choose a provider based on experience, training and qualification instead of just focusing on the latest laser platforms or the best deals. Since Asian skin is challenging to treat than Caucasian skin, your choice of provider can spare you from a botched outcome.
