Laser skin treatment is done in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria and other regions of the country by qualified surgeons. This kind of solution is able to benefit those who have acne scars, wrinkles and stretch marks just to name a few of the main reasons people become patients. Very basically it involves removing the top layer of skin so that given a period of time a new layer reforms which is fresher and smoother. For those looking to remove wrinkles and fine lines on the face area it is particularly used around the eyes and mouth for a younger looking complexion.
Time taken to perform laser skin treatment on a patient will very much depend on a persons individual requirements. For some it is only a few minutes but for those with larger areas to be treated or deeper wrinkles and acne scars a few sessions maybe required meaning longer sessions to treat the whole area and of course healing time periods between sessions. To get an accurate idea of price regarding specific individual requirements the best thing to do is to book a personal consultation with the surgeon who can advise and clear up any questions on procedures and costs involved.
This kind of cosmetic surgery is done under local anaesthetic and side effects in most patients are minimal if non-existent. However, darker skin types need to be aware that it can cause changes in the pigment of certain people so once again it is advisable to consult a doctor or cosmetic surgeon beforehand who can evaluate your specific skin type and advise further. The treated area usually remains pinkish or red even for a few weeks after being treated and most surgery’s will provide a patient with creams or ointments to treat the area during the healing period after laser skin treatment has been carried out.
