Skin laser treatment that is done by specialists at clinics in Cape Town, Durban and regions of Gauteng is a process of rejuvenation, resurfacing the skin as a popular cosmetic procedure. This type of treatment is safe and can help with imperfections, certain skin disorders, aging and reduce the suns effects on the face. There are some limitations to this type of procedure and those with more severe scars on the face may do better considering additional scar revision techniques that are available throughout South Africa.
Also referred to as a peel, the skin laser treatment removes outer layers that have been damaged while in-turn stimulating collagen and new cells in the underlying layers. Once the process has been carried through, a patient is left with a younger looking and smoother, healthier looking complexion. The reason this cosmetic procedure is often referred to as a laser peel treatment is simply because the damaged layers are peeled away leaving a more rejuvenated surface with a better appearance.
The cost of resurfacing is determined by a number of different factors including the clinic’s surgeon’s fee and the anesthesia. The correct step to take is to set up a consultation with the surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist to determine the price estimates for an individuals specific requirements. The time it takes for cosmetic surgery to take place also depends on the patients individual requirements and a partial facial resurfacing can take as little as 20 minutes or half an hour whereas a full face resurfacing may take approximately two hours or so. There are risks and benefits related to any cosmetic surgery although with the more gentle skin laser treatment peels for rejuvenation the risks are minimal.
