Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our skin develops acne, acne scars, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, rough patches, and many other problems as we age. Along with aging, other factors like stress, the sun, and environmental pollution can also contribute to the damage and destruction of our facial skin.

Over-the-counter creams, lotions, serums, pills, and other topical products can only do so much when it comes to repairing and rejuvenating our skin. If you want a more effective treatment that can revitalize your skin, you may be interested in laser skin resurfacing.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive non-surgical FDA-approved technique. It can help correct many kinds of skin problems by slowly removing the upper layers of damaged and dead skin cells, revealing radiant and younger-looking skin underneath.

Laser skin resurfacing is also known as a laser peel, because it peels off the skin cells using a laser. It’s also known as lasabrasion or laser vaporization.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can reverse numerous issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, spots, and pigmentation that have not improved with other kinds of treatments.

As the laser carefully and precisely removes the upper layers of the skin, the new skin cells are revealed. These new skin cells help to repair and reverse the damage caused to the skin and help reveal newer, tighter, and younger-looking skin.

This treatment can be done along with other kinds of cosmetic surgeries and treatments on the face to provide even more comprehensive enhancement and rejuvenation.

What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Help Treat?

  • Wrinkles or fine lines around or under the eyes, mouth, and forehead
  • Acne
  • Scars from chickenpox or acne

The Process and What to Expect

The patient is first administered with topical or local anesthesia, usually a cream containing lidocaine. The surgeon will then start to slowly administer laser energy to the affected areas of the skin, one area at a time. The laser is designed to send strong, short, and concentrated pulsating beams of light onto the damaged or irregular skin. This helps to remove the unwanted and damaged skin in a very safe and precise manner.

The concentrated laser beams that are used in the laser resurfacing treatment will help remove the outer layer of your facial skin, which is called the epidermis. It also simultaneously heats up the underlying skin, which is called the dermis. This action will work to stimulate the growth of new collagen protein fibers in the skin.

As the targeted and treated area heals, the new skin that forms underneath will be smoother, firmer, and more radiant. Speak with a skilled medical professional to find out more about the healing process and the measures you’ll need to take to prepare for it.
