The use of profactional resurfacing for treating pigmentation involves a strategy which makes use of Sciton laser technolog  which produces ablative resurfacing and the short recovery time of the laser treatments. The use of profactional resurfacing techniques will help the medical personnel control better the depth and intensity of the laser treatment to achieve the best possible result. Aside its usage for sun spots treatments, it can also be used in treating wrinkles and hyperpigmentation problems.

Pinpoint precision is the technique used in the administration of profactional resurfacing on a patient. The damaged skin area is heated with some light energy, as a result of this, healthy tissues are left in between the treated skin area to produce new tissues. This treatment require no anesthesia and it is accompanied by a very minimal pain. Individuals that are healthy or those whose pigmentation arise from auto-immune disorders can also benefit immensely from this treatment. One great thing about the profactional resurfacing is that the medical personnel can decrease or increase its intensity depending on the severity of the skin pigmentation and individual needs of the patient.

In some cases, nervous patients may be offerd some calming pills or anesthetics to relax them before the treatment, many patients on the other hand do not like the idea of numbing their skin before they are treated. People who suffer from other auto immunal infections or diseases such as diabetes are not advised to undergo this form of skin treatment. Research has shown no contradictions likely in pregnant women but it will be safer for them to receive such treatments after delivery.

During the profactional resurfacing treatment, the eyes are particularly covered  from the laser light exposure. After covering the eyes, the laser is then run over the affected skin surfaces, allowing the heat energy penetrate the areas where the pigmentation occurs. If applied on the face for instance, the patient will feel the face being heated up once the treatment starts, some patients may also experience prickling sensations once the affected area has been treated, however the medical personnel can apply cool compresses to the treated part to prevent swellings developing , an alternative is the application of  sterile dressings.

Doctors might recommend for a patient who have just been treated with profactional resurfacing to stay away from heat and sunlight for months but swelling problems which might develop after treatment will disappear few days after treatment and the individual can return to his or her active lifestyle. You must always wear SPF after treatment for pigmentation to prevent it reoccurring.
