What is Laser Facial Surgery?

Laser facial surgery or alternatively known as laser resurfacing is a type of cosmetic laser surgery that uses a laser technology to improve the overall appearance of the skin. A full face treatment can be used to reduce facial wrinkles, acne scarring, and other signs of ageing.

The main goal with laser resurfacing is to give the skin a more youthful appearance overall. Laser facial surgery is a relatively new procedure, and its long-term benefits are still being studied. However, early results and client success stories show that it can be very useful in improving the appearance of the skin.



How Laser Skin Resurfacing is Done?

Laser facial surgery or laser skin resurfacing works by using a laser to remove unwanted hair, deep wrinkles, and blemishes on the outer layer of the skin. The laser is able to penetrate deep into the skin and remove these imperfections without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue. This results in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

With previous CO2 skin resurfacing laser technology, it had a downside of damaging surrounding tissues of the treated areas. However, with latest technological advancements, our Acne Scarring Treatment prevents a loss of skin tone, which is not normally associated with completely ablative lasers.

Generally lasers have a high energy potential and are very useful, however a pain reliever can be used at the higher levels of energy that have a greater impact.

Does it make a difference on who performs your laser skin resurfacing treatments?

Laser resurfacing can improve skin tone and skin texture with an effective procedure. When a person is untrained, laser technology is ineffective and dangerous to humans. Choose the best clinic depending upon individual experience, training or qualification.

Choose your laser platform not just by comparing prices or offering the best product. Select an experienced laser resurfacing service provider. Don't just search for the best deals or newest laser systems.

Opt for laser treatments if you are willing to make an investment in your skin’s appearance. Always choose from one of the cosmetic surgeon boards approved for cosmetic surgery.

At Perfect Laser Clinics, we only use FDA approved devices as it is our utmost priority to make our clients feel safe. Our trained professionals will only suggest laser treatment options that are mindful of your medical history and suited to your own unique individual needs.

To better understand laser resurfacing or any cosmetic procedure, always read up on the myths as they may be a limiting belief or factually incorrect.

Here are some myths surrounding laser skin resurfacing:

Myth 1: Laser skin resurfacing is not suitable for darker skin

It is rather unfortunate that many patients think laser energy is not suitable for dark or sensitive skin. While certain laser treatments have an inverse impact on the skin colour, there are still safe resurfacing options.

Erbium lasers are commonly known to be an excellent option for darker skin tones of Asians, Hispanics, and African Americans due to their lower risk of hyperpigmentation. Clients with dark brown or black skin may benefit from additional resurfacing options such as radiofrequency treatments or microdermabrasion.

Having darker skin tones should not stop a person achieving their ideal skin health. Although darker skin tones might be prone to other skin concerns, it does not mean that it may not affect people with lighter skin tones. It is always a good idea to understand your medical history and genetics.

Clients can always consider non ablative laser treatments to help with their skin’s healing process.

Myth 2: Laser resurfacing is painful!

Patients frequently compare the hurt of laser surgery to the pain of flicking rubber bands on their skin. The sensation of laser resurfacing differs based on the laser, the quality of the treatments, and the tolerance of the patient.

Deep ablative (clearing some skin layers) lasers may require local anaesthesia to keep the patient comfortable. The co2 laser and erbiumYAG laser are two such examples of ablative lasers.

Certain non ablative laser procedures cause little or no discomfort and can be soothed with only a topical numbing cream.

When should you do laser skin resurfacing?

Unfortunately some clients are unable to do laser treatments in the winter. There are a couple of reasons why this happens. For some, it is because of underlying skin conditions like skin hypersensitivity. Too much sun exposure could also make it more painful during laser treatment.

Skin hypersensitivity can be treated for up to a year with laser skin resurfacing treatments. Regardless of when and where you have the laser treatment, use an SPF 30 or higher sunblock every day. This not only helps you maintain your best appearance, but it also helps prevent skin cancer and premature ageing.


The Risks and Side Effects of Laser Skin Resurfacing

As mentioned above, with every cosmetic procedure there are risks and side effects. The risk may be higher for folks with non responsive skin or underlying skin concerns. Always consult your therapist and clarify doubts before beginning the laser procedure.

What are the risks of laser facial surgery?

Laser facial surgery comes with a number of risks and side effects. Some of the most common risks and side effects include:


Laser skin resurfacing can cause minor bleeding, which can be easily treated. However, if you notice heavy bleeding or blood clots, seek medical help immediately.


Laser skin resurfacing can increase your risk of infection. If you experience any signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, or fever, seek medical help.


Laser skin resurfacing can cause scarring, especially if the procedure is not performed by a qualified professional. This scarring appears if the laser beam targets tissues surrounding the treated skin.

A trained and qualified therapist will be excellent at targeting laser energy. Make sure to choose a qualified therapist to minimise your risk of scarring.


Laser skin resurfacing can cause some temporary numbness in the treated area. This typically resolves within a few weeks.

Changes in skin colour

Laser skin resurfacing can cause changes in the colour of the skin in the treated area. This is usually temporary and resolves within a few months.The new skin that forms as the treated area heals is smoother and firmer.



How Do You Prepare for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Prior to laser resurfacing, your dermatologist or therapist will most likely:

Inquire about your medical background

Prepare to give answers about your current and previous medical conditions, as well as any medications you are currently taking or have recently taken. Your doctor may also inquire about previous cosmetic procedures you've had, as well as how you react to sun exposure.

There are certain types of medications that could affect the efficacy of the treatment. Always inform your therapist about any medication or supplement you are currently consuming.

Do note that certain acne medications may contain isotretinoin (generic name: Accutane). This ingredient could be harmful to regenerative procedures and may lead to painful scarring for some people. Aspirin may also cause bleeding.

Conduct a physical examination

Your therapist will examine your skin and the area to be treated. This helps determine what changes can be made and how your physical characteristics, such as complexion and texture, may affect your results.

You might also need to:

Consume extra medications

If you've had a record of herpes outbreaks around your mouth or cold sores and are having ablative laser resurfacing or non ablative lasers, your doctor will recommend an antiviral medication before and after treatment.

This is done to prevent bacterial illness. Depending on your medical history, your dermatologist may advise you to take supplemental medications before your treatment plan.

Steer clear of direct sun exposure

Up to two months pre surgery, excessive sun exposure may lead in treated areas developing uneven coloration irreversibly. Go over sun protection measures and safe sun exposure levels with your therapist if you need to. It is always better to ask and clarify your doubts than to go through the process with them. Trained professionals will never shame your questions.

Quit smoking

If you vape or smoke, do try to quit two weeks before and after treatment is done. This helps your body repair and increases your likelihood of avoiding difficulties.

What causes my acne?

Excessive oil secretion and dry skin are the two most common causes of acne. Acne is common in people who have oily skin because the sebaceous glands produce too much oil, which clogs the pores. As a result, proper pore cleansing is required to prevent bacteria from inflaming the sebaceous glands and causing acne. People with dry skin, on the other hand, can get acne because their pores produce more oil to lubricate the skin, resulting in various types of pimples and comedones.

How did our Signature Acne Treatment help with acne?

The two-way suction and drainage technology can gently remove dead skin cells while infusing hydrating essence into the skin. As a result, pores are unclogged and the skin's water-oil ratio is balanced, both of which help to reduce acne inflammation.

Is this treatment painful?

A large percentage of acne treatments involve the use of needles. In comparison, the Signature Acne Treatment is completely non-invasive, painless, and enjoyable!

What should I look out for after the treatment?

The treatment is safe for the skin. You can, however, take some steps to improve and extend the treatment's effectiveness. To begin, use a sufficient amount of SPF30+ sunscreen daily and reapply every two hours to prevent UV light damage. Also, please avoid skin care products that contain acids or alcohol. Finally, don't try to pop or pinch the acne because this can result in blemishes. Instead, simply allow the acne to fade naturally.

What does your face look like after laser treatment?

The skin becomes red, sensitive, and sunburned immediately after treatment. It may take several days for the redness and swelling to subside. A raw face may have a slight reddish odour or a blister depending on the treatment.
