How to repair laser damaged skin?

Treating skin related problems by laser treatment such as removal of acne scars and skin rejuvenation are on the rise. The increase in the popularity of laser treatments to treat skin related problems is due to the good results laser treatments offer. But at times laser treatments can also cause skin damage if treatments are not performed correctly or aftercare treatment is not followed up.

How does laser treatment work?

When it comes to skincare treatments via laser the process works by the laser bringing concentrated and focused light beams to the area where the skin problem exists. This process works by the laser energy being able to perform certain function on the skin. These functions include the stimulation of collagen production, encouraging cell turnover and removal and repair of damaged skin.

Although laser treatments can be very effective and help treat many skin related issues, they can also cause damage to the skin at times. The damage caused by laser can vary and it may depend on the type and strength of laser used. Some individuals may suffer problems such as redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation and burns after laser treatments. The side effects that may indicate skin damage due to laser treatment include dry skin, flakiness in the skin, unsmooth skin, and bumps in the skin texture.

Addressing skin damage from laser treatment

Once skin damage has occurred after laser treatment it is important to address the issues and repair the damaged skin. Repairing skin damage benefits the overall health of your skin and helps prevent further complications. It is important to modify your skincare routine to adopt to requirements for the skin damage caused by laser and consult a dermatologist. A dermatologist can assist you by assessing the problem and providing a diagnosis followed up by suitable treatment options.

Building a skincare routine for damaged skin from laser

In previous articles we have discussed the importance of building a good skincare routine that addresses the requirements of your skin. When it comes to laser damaged skin, building a new skincare routine or modifying your existing skincare routine to address the issues is again very important.

It is best to include in your skincare routine gentle cleansing with a mild and gentle cleanser. This helps to remove and clean contamination and degradation caused by laser on the skin without removing skin’s natural moisture. It is also essential that you keep and maintain the skin moisturized and hydrated. Maintaining the skin moisturized and hydrated helps to bring back to the skin moisture balance and improve the capability and strength of the skin barrier.

Furthermore, with any solid skincare routine sun protection must be included. Make sure to include sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 which helps the skin to heal properly.  Also make sure to use nourishing ingredients and antioxidants such as vitamin C & E to further help the skin’s healing process. Ingredients such as vitamin C & E help to decrease inflammation caused by laser and help stimulate collagen production to make the skin healthier.

In addition, exfoliation is another action that you can include in your skincare routine if not already included. Dead skin cells can be removed by gentle exfoliation which in turn helps cell turnover bringing healthier skin from underneath upfront. Make sure not to over exfoliate and use gentle exfoliation which are specific for sensitive or damaged skin.
