Improve Your Skin With Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing improves the appearance of the skin with relatively little downtime. Patients who have tried peels, facials, and microdermabrasion but are looking for more dramatic results may find that laser skin resurfacing produces favorable results, and reverses the appearance of aging skin.
What is the procedure?
Laser skin resurfacing uses fractionated laser technology to treat various skin conditions and turn back time, resulting in skin that looks healthier and feels better. Depending on the level of treatment and the desired outcome, there are two major types of resurfacing techniques that could be used: non-ablative and ablative.
How it works
Non-ablative skin resurfacing uses a non-aggressive, mild laser technology to improve skin conditions such as skin pigmentation, scarring, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. This treatment has less downtime than ablative skin surfacing.
Ablative skin resurfacing uses a comprehensive laser technology that provides more dramatic results. This treatment is generally used to treat deeper lines and wrinkles, wrinkles around the mouth, deep scars, and irregular skin texture. Patients undergoing ablative skin resurfacing may opt for local anesthesia injections or mild sedation.
Patients undergoing either procedure should expect for it to take up to an hour. Patients may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity, and inflammation. Schedule a consultation to discuss which treatment is right for you.
