Laser resurfacing is a new skin cleaning laser treatment that is fast gaining popularity. This cosmetic procedure uses lasers to remove the top layer of skin, which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. The laser also helps to promote better circulation and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Laser resurfacing is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. There are many cases where skin repair requires more than a series of facials. For brown spots, acne scarring, signs of aging and more, we integrate the use of FDA-approved lasers and collagen stimulators into your skin care plan.

HOW DOES LASER SKIN RESURFACING WORK?

Laser skin resurfacing is a light therapy that involves using laser light to send short, concentrated, pulsating beams of light on irregular layers of skin. This helps in removal of unwanted, damaged skin, and acne scars, precisely one layer at a time.

One of the benefits of laser skin resurfacing is that it can help improve hypopigmentation or help lightening of the skin.

Laser resurfacing uses a laser beam to remove the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. The heat from the laser also works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers in the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action helps to improve your appearance by making your skin smoother and firmer.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

You may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing treatment if you have:

  • Wrinkles or age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Dry skin
  • Large pores
  • Dark circles under your eyes
  • Brown patches on your skin

In addition, laser resurfacing can help to improve:

  • Skin texture and tone
  • Circulation in the skin

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF LASERS USED FOR TREATING SKIN RELATED ISSUES?

Different lasers are designed to treat different issues and skin types. There are many options when it comes to laser therapy. Some common laser types include: ablative lasers, CO2 lasers, pulsed dye lasers, and fractional lasers.

  • CO2 lasers are typically used to treat scars, warts, wrinkles, and other deeper skin flaws.
  • Erbium lasers are used to remove skin cells and damaged tissue. They can be ablative or non-ablative, which makes them popular for treating fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and age spots.
  • Pulsed-Dye Lasers are typically low-power lasers that heat the skin and cause pigment to be broken down. This reduction in redness, hyperpigmentation, capillary breakage, and rosacea can be seen after treatment.
  • A fractional laser is a type of laser that breaks up the laser energy into thousands of tiny beams to treat only a fraction of the skin in the area, which results in less downtime.
  • IPL (Intense pulsed light) treatments are not lasers, but they are often used to treat similar concerns as lasers, such as sun damage, vascular lesions, acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation.
