Laser skin resurfacing, one of these treatments, is unique among all the others. This revolutionary treatment is designed to treat aging skin conditions and give patients youthful, healthier skin.
Patients will see a significant improvement in their facial skin after skin resurfacing therapy. This includes a reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and blemishes.
How does it Work?
Laser resurfacing can be done under local anesthesia. The treatment area is first washed. Next, a numbing cream is applied to the skin. The surgeon then applies a water-soluble tint to the top of the numbing cream. This allows the surgeon to see the counter lines in the skin. Special goggles are used to protect the eyes of the patient.
Laser skin resurfacing is performed using two of the most popular lasers: CO2 (carbon dioxide), and erbium lasers. The laser light only touches a small portion of the skin, and the heat generated by the laser vaporizes any damaged skin cells at the surface.
This treatment can rejuvenate the skin and reduce wrinkles, scars, and fine lines. The deeper skin layers are also affected to stimulate collagen growth. Laser treatment can be done all over the body or in specific areas. Patients will notice smoother, more youthful-looking skin after treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
It all depends on how much skin needs to be treated. It will take approximately half an hour to treat a small area of the facial skin like wrinkles around your eyes or your mouth. It may take up to an hour to treat the entire face.
