Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective techniques for treating a variety of skin conditions. The minimally invasive treatment method works by ablating the outer surface of the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. This regeneration process helps eliminate dull, damaged skin cells and can promote a healthier, more vibrant-looking complexion. Laser treatments are effective to treat diverse skin conditions such as dark spots, melasma.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing uses lasers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars, to even out skin coloring (pigmentation), to tighten skin and to remove lesions, both benign (non-cancerous) and malignant.
The laser technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. Laser skin resurfacing removes skin very precisely, layer-by-layer by vaporizing it. Lasers remove the outer layer of your skin – the epidermis – and heats the underlying layer, called the dermis. The lasers stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers resulting in new skin that is smoother and firmer. This popular procedure is known by several other names, including lasabrasion, laser peel or laser vaporization.
