What Is Skin Resurfacing?

Oh, my God! Did you just pop a pimple on your forehead? You might have to pay for it in the form of a permanent scar on your face. Yes, you heard it right, that’s where your acne scars came from. With age, they have taken over your skin along with fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
It makes you look much older than your age. It is shattering your self-confidence. But just take it easy as I have a miraculous solution to this.
Skin resurfacing is a type of cosmetic surgery where the growth of new cells is encouraged in the otherwise damaged area of skin. This can be useful for acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, or scars left after some accident or surgery.
For skin resurfacing, you’ll find many kinds of techniques available, especially laser treatments. Somehow they can be more invasive. In addition to laser treatments, two latest non-laser methods for skin resurfacing are gaining popularity.

Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Regeneration:

Plasma rich skin regeneration is a revolutionary treatment in cosmetic surgery. It is a very non-invasive procedure that will use your own blood for your treatment.

The basic principle of this procedure is to inject platelet-rich blood from the patient to areas which are damaged due to less blood flow. Platelets have natural growth and repairing factors that help to repair tissues.


The procedure is quite easy and painless. For a fresh and young-looking face you’ll go through the following steps;

  • Your face will be numbed using topical anesthesia. This step usually takes 30 minutes
  • After this, your surgeon will draw out platelet-rich blood using a syringe. This blood is usually taken out from the arm.
  • Further, this blood is centrifuged to separate the miraculous healing compound, platelets.
  • Next, this plasma is inserted in the damaged areas using micro-needling.


As mentioned earlier, it is a very non-invasive procedure. That is why the downtime is almost none. You are good to resume your daily routine right away. You’ll have some redness or irritation for which you should avoid applying any cosmetics for some time.

Moreover, you should avoid exercise and vigorous activity for at least 72 hours, as sweating can cause irritation and swelling.


You’ll be able to see the results in a few weeks. You might need retouching after some time, depending upon your skin type and age.

The Suitable Candidate For Plasma Skin Regeneration:

Plasma skin regeneration gives best results if performed when early signs of aging begin to show. So if your wrinkles and fine lines have just started to show, you can get this procedure done. Additionally, some other conditions which make you a suitable candidate are;

  • Age spots
  • Discoloration or hyperpigmentation of the skin
  • Jowls (loose skin at neck and jawline)
  • Sagging facial skin
  • Fine lines across nose and mouth
  • Wrinkles across nose and mouth


Dermabrasion is another non-laser technique used for skin resurfacing. It is used to smooth out the skin texture. It is more effective with acne scars. It works upon the principle of controlled surgical scraping of the skin to smooth it out and let new skin grow in its place. Let’s have a look  at how does it work;


The process of dermabrasion is quite fast and simple. It is just a matter of an hour or two depending upon the area of skin to be treated. At first, you’ll be given local anesthesia. Next, your surgeon will use a scraping tool to scrap off top layers of skin until it evens out with the level of the scar.


While you recover from a dermabrasion surgery you might have a downtime of two to three weeks. This is mostly because you need to protect your face from sun and wind. Moreover, for the first two weeks, you’ll have some redness and swelling also.

Furthermore, you might experience some pain for which your surgeon will recommend pain killers. In addition to this, your scar will form a scab as a part of healing. The scab will gradually dry out and fall off. Meanwhile, new pink skin will start to grow.

During recovery, the recommendation is to avoid makeup and razor blades for shaving.


The results will take some time to show. The skin in the treated area will be a little pinkish. This can take about three months to go away. Indeed, after that you won’t be able to distinguish the treated area as the skin color will match with the rest.

Moreover, you might need retouching procedures from time to time, depending upon your skin type and age.

The Suitable Candidate For Dermabrasion:

Dermabrasion can be done at any age from young teens to older adults. The best suitable candidates are those who have passed the vulnerable acne stage in life. Some other factors to consider are;

  • Your skin type
  • Skin color
  • Medical history
  • Skin allergies

So now that you have an insight into the procedures, the very important thing is to choose the right surgeon.

It is highly advisable that you book a prior appointment with a good qualified and well-trained surgeon. Make sure that you communicate all your expectations and understand all the outcomes of the procedure
