Not everyone was born with that coveted smooth and radiant skin. Some have to constantly contend with breakouts, early signs of wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars that could put the moon to shame. For those who are not willing to give up, there is a new skin rejuvenation treatment that has taken the aesthetic industry of Singapore by storm, and it is called the Mosaic Skin Laser Treatment. If you are interested to try this out, here are the things you need to know first.
What is the Mosaic Skin Laser Treatment?
For those who are looking for a treatment that would address the skin issues mentioned above, it is no secret that it is difficult to find one that would effectively eradicate all of them successfully. Thanks to innovation, Mosaic Skin Laser treatment is one to consider. It is a treatment that holds promise, particularly to Asians, because it is safe to use on their skin type which is highly sensitive to pigmentation.
How Does it Work?
Using a laser technology called the Controlled Chaos Technology or CCT, this medically induced treatment stimulates the natural healing process of the skin to bring out a new layer of rejuvenated skin.
The first thing it does is create a mosaic of microscopic wounds that are meant to stimulate the skin rejuvenation process while keeping the surface of the skin unharmed or undamaged. For this to happen, the wounds are inflicted beneath the surface of the skin, which then triggers the natural healing process. Aside from this, collagen and elastin are also regenerated and encouraged to grow in your skin which ultimately makes it tighter and smoother.
How Does the Doctor Do It?
Your doctor begins the procedure by applying topical anesthetic cream on the target area. This is to protect the area from any discomfort that might be experienced during the treatment. After a few minutes, or once the anesthetic has taken effect, the surgeon will wipe it off. Next, he will apply a maneuvering gel that would allow the device to smoothly glide through the target areas.
What Kind of Pain is Expected?
The treatment is non-invasive, but you should expect to feel slight pain and burning while the laser does its work. Once the doctor is done, a cooling gel will be applied to relieve the patient of the pain and discomfort of the procedure.
For those who have keloids, hypertrophic scars, and stretch marks this is the right treatment for you.
How Long is the Procedure Going to Take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area that needs to be targeted. This would vary for each patient to ensure that the necessary amount of treatment is given according to their needs.
If you wish to have the treatment done without delay, be sure to come without any makeup or jewelry.
What Kind of Results Can Be Expected?
With the Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation treatment, you get what its name implies and that means saying goodbye to the unsightly fine lines, wrinkles, and the dreaded skin laxity. It can also address your acne problems because the laser used in the procedure smoothes out the depressions that are caused by acne.
With the formation of new collagen beneath the scar as a result of the treatment’s stimulation, the scar tissues are made to regenerate, giving a more even skin tone and smoother texture.
Downtime is an issue for those with a tight schedule. Thankfully, this procedure does not need you to stay away from work for long. In fact, you can return to your usual activities after the procedure, but there will be redness and minor swelling that could last around two to three days. Expect your skin to have that pinkish shade for a week, and for that purpose, you must take care of your skin and avoid sun exposure. If you want your healing to be fast and efficient, follow the post-treatment instructions that your surgeon will give you for the first four weeks post-surgery.
How Much Does This Treatment Cost?
Should money be a concern, the cost of this procedure will depend on the area that needs to be treated, and the number of sessions required before the patient achieves the desired result. This is where the expertise of your surgeon is required because the good ones would know exactly what to do with your face and therefore give you a more accurate and fair quotation.
Should I Worry About Any Side Effects?
Aside from the redness and swelling that the treated area will experience after the procedure, the skin also has the tendency to flake and dry because it goes into a process of renewal and rejuvenation. Such concerns can be handled by special creams that also act as a gentle moisturizer that will hydrate and moisturize your skin. After a week, you can expect to see a healthier and more radiant-looking skin.
What is the Aftercare Treatment?
As a result of the procedure, the skin will be very sensitive for about a month and it should be protected from the harmful rays of the sun. For this reason, you should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen and wear a wide-brimmed hat. Neglecting this step will make you vulnerable to hyper pigmentation.
At this point, you should also put a stop to your vices like, drinking alcohol and smoking, specifically for the first two days post-surgery. Other things to avoid for the time-being would be the strenuous activities and hot baths. If you are a dedicated swimmer, you should stop swimming for a while. It is also advised that you avoid make-up products that contain retinoid or glycolic acid.
