What is it?

Resurfacing is a technique consisting of application of laser to regenerate and achieve full skin renewal.

In which cases is it carried out?

  • For superficial and medium depth wrinkles
  • Facial wrinkles, among these “crow’s feet” that surround the external outline of the eyes

Previous examinations

  • A full ophthalmological examination and eyelid and periocular examination
  • Photos are taken to assess the patient’s condition before and after treatment

During the treatment

  • This treatment is carried out in the operating theatre of the out-patient’s unit
  • IMO specialists apply CO2 or Erbio YAG laser to eliminate deep wrinkles, “peeling” the outermost layers of the skin
  • The energy emitted from these kinds of laser treatments is absorbed by the intracellular water, which causes vaporisation and generates heat that contracts the collagen

After treatment

  • The patient must continue treatment with humidifying and healing ointments, and treat the area operated with ice to avoid it becoming inflamed
  • The patient must use sun-block cream as protection from the sun’s rays. Therefore, this treatment is not normally recommended in the summer
  • After 24 hours, the patient can see the first results. The skin turns a pinkish colour that gradually disappears after 4-6 weeks when its normal pigmentation is recovered
