Wrinkles, age spots, facial scars, and stretch marks are common skin problems that a lot of people suffer. Is there any way to get rid of these without undergoing some kind of a surgery?
In this episode of Good Morning, Texas, Dr. Bill Johnson of Innovations Medical shares to the viewers on how to fall in love with oneís skin all over again using non-invasive, non-surgical techniques.
While lots of different creams and products in the market can help in improving wrinkles, age spots, facial scars, and stretch marks, what remains to be the gold standard in renewing and rejuvenating the skin back to its youthful glow is Skin Resurfacing.
In the past, laser resurfacing inevitably involves treating a large portion of the skin, which can mean removal of the entire upper layer of the problematic skin. This, in turn, leads to a slower healing process, as well as great discomfort to the patient. But, now, with the development of fractional laser resurfacing technique, people can achieve the skin they have always dreamed of with less downtime and in a relatively painless procedure.
In fractional resurfacing, only a small area of the skin is being subjected to treatment and, at the same time, achieving the same result that one gets in having a larger area treated. The doctor creates hundreds of tiny holes into the skin, and the resulting injury will send signal to the body to trigger the beginning of the healing process. The end result is the healing of the entire problematic skin area even though only a fraction of the problematic skin was subjected to treatment.
Skin resurfacing has a number of indications in skin problems. It is a great procedure for pigmentations, such as melasma and age spots. However, melasma has a tendency to recur, hence, the patient will require continuous treatment over a period of time. Fractional resurfacing is also the best available treatment for facial scars from acne or surgery. It also is indicated for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tightening and lifting the face.
There are three kinds of modern laser resurfacing techniques that are available in Innovations Medical. These are the SmartXide Dot CO2 Laser, Fraxel, and Clear and Brilliant Laser. Fraxel is best for pigmentation problems, and for individuals with active lifestyle because it offers less downtime. Clear and Brilliant Laser is the latest in the world of modern laser resurfacing and is great in maintaining the skin.
