The only side effects that may occur from the procedure include mild redness or swelling. These too will disappear within a few days of the treatment. You might require more than one session to get the results you desire, but once you’re there the results will be permanent. It is also worth noting that it can take up to a week for the final results of a treatment to surface. So, if immediately after a treatment you don’t see any visible results, don’t panic. They will surface soon enough.
A face lift involves the skillful removal of excess facial skin from the neck, chin and cheek areas under local or general anesthetic. Starting high in the temple area, the hair at the incision courses down following the curves in front of the ear round the earlobe and up behind the ear before curving gently back into the hair again.
No, there is no pain during the procedure. However, if you are too sensitive to the mild heat that is felt from lasers, numbing options can be discussed. During the healing process you might feel slight tingling or discomfort but that too should be gone within a day.
The doctor may choose to use one of three kinds of lasers (infrared, CO2 or YAG, and fractional lasers) or a combination of them. Details about the treatment that’s best for your skin will be discussed with you during your consultations.
The cost will depend on the amount of work that needs to be done. You can find out what yours will cost after your first consultation.
The way an individual’s skin reacts varies from person to person. Some people’s skin might show immediate results while others’ might take up to 7 days.
Recovery after a laser treatment for scars is not too taxing. You will be asked to not expose the skin to sunlight directly and use generous amounts of sunscreen to avoid the chance of hyperpigmentation. In the hours that immediately follow the procedure you might experience some swelling and redness but that will eventually go down.
Therefore, we request you to pay us a visit and find out about your treatment. Our team will take a look and see what strategy should be adopted for the best results for you.
The most important measures that you should take before this treatment are:
Don’t use any blood thinning medicines.
Avoid smoking for 2 weeks before a session.
Don’t use skin products that contain retinol in them.
If one of these measures is problematic for you, for example you absolutely need to take a medicine, you can discuss this concern with your doctor. Any other important measures that you should take will also be communicated to you.
