METHODS OF SKIN REJUVENATION
4.3 SURGICAL LASER FACIAL SKIN REJUVENATION OR ULTRA-PULSE® FRACTIONAL Co2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING.
Choices of Lasers for skin resurfacing treatment: Co2 laser & Erbium YAG laser are used for resurfacing. Co2 laser is preferred because it gives better results in moderate to severe problems of skin texture. Co2 Laser has more depth of penetration & better collagen remodulation in comparison to Erbium YAG Laser.
Chosing high quality of effective Co2 laser: Among all types of Co2 laser technology, choose Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser which is best technology in the world. Its technologies like Ultra-Pulse® fractional deep FX Co2 laser SCAARFXTM are the Top msot among all types of other Co2 laser technologies including super pulse pixel & fractional Co2 laser. We have made available this technology even before its availability in Mumbai. It is still not available in Mumbai. People of Nashik are more fortunate than people of Mumbai in redation to this advanced and most powerful technology.
Why one should choose high quality Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing instead of super pulse fractional or pixel Co2 Laser skin resurfacing?
Surgical Ultra-Pulse®fractional Co2 laser resurfacing produces better results in one sitting in comparison to all other lasers technologies like super pulse fractional / pixel Co2 laser. Such types laser skin resurfacing for skin rejuvenation can be done on the face, surface of eyelid, lip, neck, hands, back etc. Good results are seen in one sitting but for same results super pulse fractional & pixel Co2 need 3-4 sitting.
Photogragphs of various problems treated with Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing.
What is done in Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser resurfacing?
In surgical Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing, superficial layers of damaged skin are vaporized under anaesthesia.
Superficial or medium resurfacing is limited to the epidermis and papillary dermis. In deeper resurfacing additionally reticular dermis is removed. This later procedure is more aggressive and need more healing time. To achieve good results deeper resurfacing, is done. There is more control in the depth of penetration. So, there is more and more precision and safety. Thus, this revolutionary technology removes one layer of skin at a time So, it is most preferred Ultra-Pulse® fractional Co2 laser is must safe. After healing smoother, tighter and younger look of skin develops.
This is the most chosen procedure for those who want dramatic changes in existent scars, acne scars/depressed pits/other scars, ageing skin, loose skin strong dark circle, dark/wrinkled lips & dark patches on the skin. Ultra-Pulse ® fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing is more effective and qualitative than superpulse fractional/pixel Co2 laser. Erbium YAG laser, Erbium glass YAG laser, micro-needling FR technology, dermaroller, etc.
Depending upon area and type of problem, laser resurfacing requires five minutes to 11/2 hour. In case of deeper & severe problems Ultra-Pulse ® fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing is performed in two or three sittings or super pulse fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing is performed in 3 to 6 sitting.
After procedure: Do not pick the crusts off as it may result in scarring Protect from sun exposure till colour of skin has returned to normal. Use sun block with SPF and wide brimmed hat. After two weeks, make up can be applied safely. Rarely make up may cause irritation. In such case, use of make-up is postponed for few weeks. After healing fresh appearance of the skin increases.
