Laser Skin Resurfacing
Look As Young As You Feel
One of the most effective skin resurfacing procedures is performed with specialized lasers that “resurface” skin, stimulating cell turnover for a more youthful appearance.
As the skin ages, lines, wrinkles, spots and discoloration start showing up. This is when many adults consider routine laser skin resurfacing treatments.
While the ideal time to start a long-term skincare strategy is before you notice such imperfections, it’s never too late to see how technology can start turning back time.
WHAT IS LASER RESURFACING?
Laser resurfacing is a powerful treatment you can add to your regimen to make it a little easier to keep your skin looking its youthful best. If you’re battling the effects aging can have on your skin, or trying to address it before the battle even starts, can help.
HOW IT WORKS
Laser resurfacing uses a precise laser instrument to gently remove the outer layers of damaged skin. This process directs pulsating beams of laser light over irregular skin, gently peeling off old, dead layers.
This removal process allows new cells to form where timeworn layers were removed. As skin heals following a laser resurfacing session it will start to appear healthier, tighter and younger looking.
With a focus on skin care, laser resurfacing helps improve tone and texture and gives skin a radiant, youthful glow. The procedure creates a more even skin canvas, with a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, discoloration and skin tone. It is a perfect complement to individual beauty and lifestyle regiment.
Routine treatments deliver lasting results that can keep you looking younger for years to come. laser resurfacing is simple yet effective. An easy, affordable treatment to add to your routine, much like the way you plan for a facial or trip to the hair salon.
What Type of Skin Problems Can Laser Resurfacing Alleviate?
Laser resurfacing can be a highly effective treatment for reducing facial wrinkles and other skin irregularities including sunspots, blemishes and scars. Laser resurfacing can also be used to help reduce the significance of acne marks, chicken pox scars, smile lines, forehead wrinkles, freckles, sunspots or noticeable blood vessels. Here are some ways lasers work to alleviate common skin complaints:
WRINKLES: These stubborn signs of aging come in two forms: static and dynamic. Laser resurfacing can assist in lessening the appearance of wrinkles that do not change with facial movements (static), as well as expression lines or folds that deepen with facial movements (dynamic).
SCARING: Whether you have retained scars from acne as a young adult, injury or another skin condition, raised, pitted or discolored scars are a common problem that our cosmetic professionals can treat with laser resurfacing.
DISCOLORATION: As we age, skin pigment can shift in color and start to appear uneven and splotchy. Regularly scheduled laser skin resurfacing treatments may help balance the look of variable facial skin by targeting freckles, sun spots and other age-related dark patches.
SKIN TONE: Over time everyone’s skin weakens as structural elements like collagen and elastin fibers that used to support skin break down. Laser resurfacing can also work to rebuild fresh layers of glowing skin in areas where the face has lost firmness.
However it is not necessary to have a specific skin condition in order to schedule a complimentary skin health consultation. Laser resurfacing can create a fresher, more even and youthful look—no matter what skin you’re in.
Who Are Candidates?
Laser resurfacing can work for many aging adults and even younger people with specific skin conditions or concerns. However individuals with olive, brown or black skin may be at an increased risk for pigmentation changes during laser work. Additionally, candidates who are prone to scarring or keloid formation are also at a higher risk.
What To Expect Post-Treatment.
For up to two weeks following a laser rejuvenation procedure patients may notice a slightly pink or red tone to the skin as new layers continue to form where old ones were stripped away. This is typically a sign of healthy healing and rejuvenation rather than a cause for concern.
