Types of Laser in Resurfacing at Colombia

We will use the most appropriate laser depending on the area and thickness of the skin to be treated.

Erbium Laser Resurfacing Facial at Colombia

This type of laser is used in cases where superficial or medium ablation is required.

The  healing time is about 7 days,  the period of redness is short, the thermal damage is relatively minimal, and the color changes are less evident than with the C02 laser. Therefore, it is  a highly recommended option , but it should be the doctor who evaluates whether it is the best technique in your case.

Facial Resurfacing with CO2 Laser at Colombia

When treating the skin with the CO2 laser, the possibility of reproducibility of results is mainly offered.

During the performance of CO2 laser resurfacing, a cutaneous retraction is caused by the heat transmitted during vaporization, which causes dehydration and shrinkage of the tissue. We will achieve smoother and more homogeneous skin on the surface.

The combined resurfacing of CO2 and erbium. The Derma-K

At the Medical-Surgical Laser Center we have the Derma-K, the only laser that combines carbon dioxide and Erbium,  offering the best of each technique .

Lumeni Derma-K

The combination of both lasers offers the great advantage of obtaining the specific properties of each system:  erbium is used in less damaged areas and CO2 is used in deeper areas.  In addition, this combined system is  ideal for a complete facial resufacing , which offers a series of advantages over partials such as greater ease in avoiding demarcation lines and color changes.

Care of facial laser Resurfacing at Colombia

It has a preoperative and postoperative to show unbeatable results.

Post-resurfacing skin care is important not only to prevent future complications, but for long-term maintenance. If we do not take care of the results that we have obtained, it is very likely that the effects of the treatment will begin to disappear, having to restart it from the beginning.


Resurfacing treatment begins at home with preoperative treatment at Colombia:

  • The use of whitening creams (4% hydroquinone), or glycolic acid weeks before the procedure to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation, especially in patients with dark skin.
  • Ac application. Retinoic 21 days before treatment.


In addition, we must take into account the postoperative treatment at Colombia:

Antiviral prophylaxis is undoubtedly essential, since herpes virus simplex infection occurs in 2 to 7% of all operated patients. The use of an antiviral agent is recommended for at least 24 hours prior to the procedure and maintained until revitalization is complete.

The use of antibacterial prophylaxis. Until the revitalization is complete, the area should be kept primarily in a humid environment, although there are differences between the authors between the choice between open or closed techniques

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing at Colombia

  • What is laser resurfacing at Colombia

We understand by  resurfacing  the formation of a  new skin  after removing the old one by using a  laser . This renewal makes it possible to eliminate or improve all the signs   of skin aging : brown and red spots (lentigines, telangiectasias), wrinkles, sagging and sagging, replacing them with new skin. The formation of a new layer of skin allows us to manufacture a large amount of new collagen and tighten the skin in a more than remarkable way (  lifting or skin tightening effect ).

Although the vast majority of times the use of  resurfacing  is  aesthetic , it also has a medical indication  , since the formation of new skin also eliminates accumulated sun damage and premalignant skin lesions ( actinic keratoses ). Therefore it also has a very effective therapeutic action, especially when there are large affected areas (scalp, face or cleavage).

What effects does a laser resurfacing at Colombia have on the skin?

The  resurfacing  ablative fractional laser is, today, the anti – aging treatment that gets  better cosmetic results  and with which all others are compared (the » gold standard «). The renewal of the skin obtained with the  resurfacing causes a very important decrease in the  lentigines  (sun spots), the  telangiectasias  (capillaries), the  wrinkles  (of the forehead, of the eyebrows, of the crow’s feet, of the eyelids, of the code of bars),  flaccidity  (of the face, neck, dewlap), pore size  and   skin shine . There is  no aesthetic treatment as effective or complete  as  resurfacing , since it treats all the signs of aging and not just some in isolation (as botulinum toxin does, for example, which only improves wrinkles; fillers, which only improve static grooves and wrinkles). It is also the most  efficient : with a single session, more results are obtained than with any other aesthetic treatment. The aesthetic effects begin to be perceived  a week  after having carried out the treatment (once the crusts of the erosions have come off), increasing the  improvement  for a period of up to six months . The effects achieved are  permanent .


How is  ablative fractional laser resurfacing at Colombia performed?

It is an outpatient procedure  , which does not require admission or performance in an operating room. The two days prior to treatment and up to two days after treatment, it is recommended to take an  oral antiviral  if there is a history of having had herpes simplex (this is also necessary in the case of using fillers). An hour before proceeding with  resurfacing , an anesthetic cream is applied in the doctor’s office   that will remain on the skin for one hour. Subsequently the anesthetic cream is removed, the skin is cleaned with an  antiseptic solution and the laser is applied. The laser head moves over the skin to be treated and it is shot sequentially in areas of maximum 2 cm square. As if it were a  mosaic  of tiles, these areas are treated contiguously. The  pace  of the procedure is  fully adjustable . If the entire face is treated, the  resurfacing  lasts about  15 minutes , and is bothersome  only in some areas (barcode and area closest to the eyelids): in the rest of the face, the discomfort is discreet. Although it is not necessary, if the patient wishes, local anesthesia can be administered in the most sensitive areas, or even sedation can be used for especially apprehensive people. Immediately at the end of the treatment, a burning / stinging sensation is perceived  , similar to that of a sunburn in summer. At that time, cold wet compresses are applied for a few minutes   to relieve, and then a  re-epithelializing cream . In the case of treating limited areas (barcode or crow’s feet), the treatment lasts barely 5 minutes.

What happens after laser resurfacing at Colombia?
All treated skin  is replaced . The procedure is exactly the same (but controlled) as when a drop of hot oil falls on us: redness ,  erosions ,  exudation ,  swelling  and, later,  scabs are observed  . This process is necessary for it to produce improvement. Usually, the  first day  after the procedure, swelling and redness are more noticeable.

On the second day the crusts begin to form, which will come off over  5  –  14 days  depending on the potency used in the treatment and the regenerative capacity of the patient’s skin. During these  first days,  you should clean your face with soap and water three times a day and use a  specific cream  to make healing faster and safer. It is recommended to  take the drop  for a period of 3-4 days so that the most intense epithelialization phase (which is drastic) is carried out at home.

In general, on the fifth or sixth day you can  live a normal life  and use  makeup . It is absolutely necessary to use  SPF 50 sun protection  when going outside.

This recovery period can be  reduced , if the patient wishes, using  low powers . In this way, normal life can be carried out in 3 – 4 days, but the effect achieved is less and it is likely that in the coming months, a new session will be desired.

How many  fractional resurfacing sessions  are necessary at Colombia?
In general, a  single session  at intermediate power achieves excellent results. However, it  will depend  on the intensity of the laser parameters that we use. The  more energy  is used, the  more  positive effect is obtained, although the  duration  of the epithelialization phase   (crusts and exudate) also increases.

What are the side effects that can appear after an   ablative fractional resurfacing at Colombia ?
Although   ablative fractional resurfacing is a safe procedure  , some undesirable effects may occur in some cases: prolonged redness for weeks (transient), hyperpigmentation (less than 1% in fair skin), hypopigmentation (exceptional), and secondary scarring (exceptional at moderate powers and in the face).
Adverse effects  are more frequent  when treating the  neck  and  décolleté area  and in patients with  dark skin (phototypes IV or higher), so caution is recommended in these cases.

What is the best indication for performing   ablative fractional resurfacing at Colombia ?
The  best answers  are obtained  the “worse”  the skin is. The aged skin of women who have brown, red spots and extensive wrinkles (deep or not) are the optimal indication of  resurfacing . If the defects are minimal, or limited to one area, another therapeutic option is generally recommended, albeit temporary. Another application of  resurfacing  with excellent results is the  “barcode”  (longitudinal wrinkles in the mustache area and around the mouth) and the  “crow’s feet” (transverse wrinkles on the outer corner of the eye).

In conclusion,   ablative fractional resurfacing is the aesthetic treatment with the  best results , with an  optimal benefit / cost ratio ,  high sensitivity  (response obtained per session) and with an immediate effect after the epithelialization phase. However, the patient has to be willing to spend a  few days on leave  (3-7, depending on the power used and the healing) in which he will have to carry out  topical treatment  three times a day.
