What Can a Laser Facial Treatment Do for You?
Many common skin conditions like scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation can be safely and effectively treated using a laser facial treatment like laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing can help rejuvenate the appearance of your skin and lead to a reduction of the effects of aging, sun damage, and certain skin disorders. The treatments are convenient, safe, and effective. Laser skin rejuvenation, often known as a laser peel, helps to remove damaged skin layers and prompt the stimulation of new collagen production in deeper skin layers. This helps to bring about healthier, smoother, more youthful skin.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a type of laser facial treatment that can help diminish the appearance of skin imperfections like wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and blemishes. The treatment process works by dissolving molecular bonds in skin tissue that is damaged. It can do this by individual layers, leading to a more uniform, smooth appearance.
Most patients enjoy good results from their laser skin resurfacing treatment when they are looking to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, abnormal skin pigmentation, and scars caused by acne or other conditions. However, the treatment is not for everyone. It may not be appropriate for certain patients with some types of medical conditions, skin tones, and skin types.
Ideal candidates for laser skin resurfacing are those dealing with the appearance of wrinkles, superficial facial scars, and uneven pigmentation. The best candidates are those with non-oily, elastic skin that does not scar easily after injury. The best candidates are those who are reasonably healthy and not taking certain prescription medications that may interfere with the treatment process or their recovery.
As with any cosmetic procedure, the best candidates are those with realistic expectations regarding their outcomes. This is why it is so important to educate yourself about the benefits and limitations of laser skin resurfacing before scheduling an appointment. Those with light skin tones tend to have better outcomes than those with dark skin tones.
The Facial Treatment Procedure
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will take place at our clinic. We use a cosmetic laser to vaporize outer skin layers using controlled laser energy. When the old, damaged skin is removed, more youthful skin is revealed beneath. As damaged skin cells are removed, new skin cell growth should become evident, leading to a reduction in skin problems.
