lasers penetrate the deeper layers of skin, past the epidermis and into
The laser is passed several times over the area to be treated.
It removes the entire epidermis layer, until it reaches
the middle of the dermis, the skin’s
second layer. This process helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen
production. That helps to plump up sagging skin and wrinkles. When the new skin
forms, the discolouration and hyperpigmentation associated with sun damage is
greatly diminished or gone altogether.
Some doctors have patients under conscious sedation during this process.
This means that the patient remains awake and receives intravenous medications
to calm and ease pain. This sedation can also be combined with the application
of topical anesthetic creams and local anesthetic injections.
The recovery time from Sharplan Co2 laser skin resurfacing is about two
weeks. During that time your skin will scab and peel off, revealing the
new, healed skin. After this, your skin will have a red sunburned look
that will last anywhere between two to eight months. Your new skin will
be tighter, clearer and better looking with fewer, less noticeable wrinkles.
Your skin’s colour will look much more even.
