What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that helps in decreasing the imperfections of the skin. It can be used to treat fine lines, uneven skin tone, mild acne spots and even sunspots making your skin appear healthier. Our laser device delivers quick, intensive, pulsating light radiations to the skin.
The pulsating beams of a laser, work on the water molecules within the collagen layer of the dermis as opposed to the melanin or blood capillaries. Our laser device heats the water molecules in the dermis and tricks the skin cells to begin a healing phase by extensive skin cell repair and collagen production. This works towards gently breaking the molecular bonds between the layers of skin. This results in the peeling away of the damaged layers of the skin. As the skin heals, a healthier, rejuvenated layer of skin is revealed.
Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Safe?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is generally safe when conducted by a certified medical professional who has a degree in dermatology. However, it is essential to consult our dermatologists and understand the risks and limitations of the procedure.

What can you expect?
Everyone’s skin is different, the texture, skin tone and skin conditions are few of the many factors that your dermatologist will consider while treating your skin. It makes a big difference on who is conducting the treatment. Your skin is safe in the hands of a knowledgeable and experienced professional, like our dermatologists at the Cosmetic Clinic. Our team creates tailor-made treatment plans for every customer depending on their unique requirements. Your laser treatment will be conducted by a certified laser therapist under the direction of an experienced dermatologist.
Laser Skin Resurfacing is usually a series of multiple treatment sessions spread weeks apart. During the surgery, your doctor will place protective gear on your eyes to shield from the laser beam. A local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area on which the laser is being used.
Our laser skin treatment doctors in Navi Mumbai will then use a handheld instrument to deliver the laser radiation to your skin. The heat from the laser will work towards peeling off the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) while stimulating collagen production and healing of the dermis. This works towards toning and tightening of the skin tissue. You might feel a rubber band-snap sensation during the procedure due to the intense heating from the laser device. The duration of the procedure may last anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
After the procedure, your skin will be red, swollen and itchy. Since your skin is in the healing phase, there are high chances of infection, to combat it, our doctor might prescribe certain medications and ointments as a post-care step. You will need to avoid skincare products and activities such as swimming which might irritate your skin. It is also very important to restrict sun exposure as it can damage your treated skin. Your doctor might also recommend washing the affected area with saline several times a day followed by the application of the recommended ointments.
Usually, it takes around 7 days for the skin to completely peel off and
recover. It is advisable to use the ointment for at least 5 days and avoid
make-up until the 7th day after the treatment. Even after the skin is healed,
one must be extremely cautious of sun exposure and smoking at least a month
after the procedure.
