Sara Rahman, a 37 year old marketing professional, lives in the glamorous city of Dubai. She has always been a party animal, and she credits her success, to a great extent, to her social skills. She never worried about her skin. It has always been smooth and youthful. She did notice few fine lines and mild wrinkles around her eyes in the past, but it was recently when she noticed that her skin is becoming loose. “As I am 37 years old and mother of two, I expect some changes in the way I look, but I am not ready for it yet” she explained. She actively started looking for some solution to regain her smooth and tight skin back.
“Dubai Laser Treatments is a famous clinic around, and it was my first choice to get professional advice” she told. She met Anisa Vrabac, an experienced and competent professional. Anisa carefully listened to her concerns to have complete information before suggesting any solution to her.
After listening to the needs and desires of Sara, Anisa discussed different options with her. Anisa’s primary recommendation was laser skin treatment. Laser Skin Tightening is a simple procedure. Laser light, an intense form of energy, is applied to the desired area of the skin. The laser light penetrates the skin and heats up the collagen. The collagen is a skin fiber, responsible for the elasticity and youthful appearance of the skin. When collagen is heated, it shrinks and becomes tight. Over the weeks, it strengthens and produces fresh and tight skin.
There are two variants in laser treatment, ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers peel off the outer layer of the skin, giving a chance to new skin to form. But they are associated with longer downtime, and it takes about a week to resume daily life activities. Non-ablative lasers stimulate and tighten the collagen without peeling off the outer layer of the skin. So, the downtime is almost none, but the results are not that dramatic.
Sara chose fractional CO2 because she wanted less downtime. On the procedure day, an anesthetic cream was applied to her skin to make it numb. She was also given special glasses to protect her eyes from laser light. Anisa held a wand like tool and applied the laser light to the whole face step-by-step. Sara didn’t feel any pain, just a feeling similar to the snapping of a rubber band across her face. After the treatment, Sara looked her face in the mirror. She was amazed with the results. Anisa told her that her skin will continue to improve for months.
Sara was happy with her timely decision. She got her youthful skin back, and deferred any possible surgical facelift by years.
