Medical lasers have become very common in the practice of dermatology, surgery, plastic surgery, dentistry, ophthalmic and Cosmetic Procedures. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) produces an intense beam of light of an exact and narrow wavelength, with insignificant dispersion over a short distance. This property is utilized in dermatology to treat various skin disorders.
When a laser beam is directed at the skin, it is absorbed be the water in naturally occurring pigments like melanin and hemoglobin. It is also absorbed by artificial pigments introduced by means of tattooing. Lasers cause very precise tissue destruction of the lesion in the light path, and does not affect the skin tissue in the surrounding area. It is this precision that has generated tremendous interest among Dermatologists to use the laser as an operative tool.
Your recovery from laser and light-based treatment will vary depending on the type of procedure you have. Many people plan to stay home for a few days after ablative laser treatment to decrease the chance of infection and to promote proper healing. After surgery, the area of that has been treated will weep similarly to an open blister.
Typically, within several days, the weeping will subside, and the treated area will appear as if it were sunburned. The treated area will remain red for several weeks. After one week, however, many people apply camouflage makeup and return to their normal activities. Redness will fade over a brief time period.
Recovery and downtime from non-ablative treatment is minimal, with most people experiencing only a “flushed” look and able to return to their daily activities right after the procedure.
