  • You need to follow NO SUN, NO SOAP regimen for next 7 days. The healing of resurfaced skin is always better if you keep your skin moist and sun-protected. Apply sunscreen with SPF 50 every 3 hourly and keep the area moist with twice daily mild steroid application and liberal use of non-comedogenic moisturizer.

  • What about fotofacials? Do they really work?
  • These facials are based on light based technology and work mainly on pigmentation though stimulate collagen production to some extent but has very less effect on open pores, scars and wrinkles as compared to fractional ablative lasers, which are known to give exceptional results for rejuvenation.
  • What can I do about the tiny broken blood vessels all over my face?
  • You can take IPL treatment or radiofrequency treatment for broken vessels.
  • I had microdermabrasion at a spa but got no substantial results? How different is this treatment going to be from microdermabrasion?
  • Microdermabrasion is a tool mainly used for abrading the superficial layers of skin. It helps in shedding the dead cell layers and improving the texture to some extent. Laser rejuvenation on the other hand is deeper penetration of laser rays resulting in new collagen synthesis and improvement in pigmentation by targeted effects on melanin pigment. The results are surely longer lasting due to ablative nature of Erbium YAG laser.
  • Why is CO2 laser resurfacing technique considered the best?
  • CO2 Laser is considered the best resurfacing tool due to its aggressive nature and deeper penetration power. The results are amazing as far as resurfacing of a scarred skin is concerned but it may have significant side effects in terms of troublesome pigmentation especially in Asian and Indian skin. This technique is best for white race or skin type 1 to 3, but surely not for Indian, Asian or African skin types which range between type 3 to 6. Meaning latter skin types have high tendency for pigmentation due to presence of pigment melanin. Results of pixel Erbium laser are comparable to CO2 laser minus the side effects; hence, Pixel Erbium is best tool on Indian skin taking risk-benefit ratio into consideration.
  • How is the procedure done?
  • The procedure is done by giving 2 to 5 passes of laser over face. It needs no anaesthesia; however some sensitive individuals may require application of numbing gel. Following procedure, soothing sprays and creams are applied and finally a coat of sunscreen is applied before sending off the client.
