Laser technology is developing in the area of facial surgical procedures and one of the revolutionized techniques is laser skin resurfacing. This method is used for treating wrinkles, sun damage, scars, actinic keratosis, tenangiectasia and solar lentigenes; whereby molecular bonds of a material are dispersed by laser. Derma clinics in Singapore are readily available for this type of surgical procedure.
Laser resurfacing can be used jointly with liposuction where excess fat from the jaw area and chin are eliminated. Presently after the removal of the extra fat, skin may appeared wrinkled and laser resurfacing is then used to taut and smoothen over the new shapes.
Two kinds of methods of facial skin resurfacing are used; the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and the erbium lasers. Both techniques are short bursts of powerful laser beam that are harmless to the adjacent tissues. For that reason, the precision and accuracy of the laser is only used to treat a specific area leaving the other tissues entirely undamaged. Scarred and wrinkled upper layers of skin are taken away to find a healthy, new and even layer of skin.
Usually, laser resurfacing treats fine wrinkles and remove lines such as crow’s feet from the face and each individual requires treatment in different areas. Some people whose skins are sun damaged may need resurfacing in the entire face. In actual fact, any lines and wrinkles of the face can be remedied with the laser. Laser resurfacing is an efficient method to reduce fine lines and wrinkles with ease.
