Wrinkles are an unavoidable part of the aging process, but you don’t have to live with them! There are ways to increase your skin’s collagen production, the key to strong, youthful-looking skin. With so many procedures and products promising younger-looking skin, it can be difficult to choose which one is right for you. There are many benefits to choosing laser skin resurfacing to get rid of your facial lines and wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing uses an intense beam of light energy directed at the treatment area. This removes the outer skin cells to reveal smooth skin beneath! Unlike some skin care products and treatments that only affect the top layers of skin, laser resurfacing goes deeper, stimulating new collagen fibers for more significant results.
Surgical procedures like a facelift and neck lift are great for more severe wrinkles and facial sagging, but they require more time off recovering. If your facial lines and wrinkles are moderate of you’re not ready for surgery, laser skin resurfacing is a great alternative. After your laser skin resurfacing you can expect similar affects like sunburn with redness, burning, and swelling. If you had a non-ablative laser treatment, the affects are fairly mild and should clear up in a couple of days. However, with ablative laser resurfacing, you can expect some oozing and scabbing as your new skin heals. After about five days, you can expect the treated skin to peel, revealing your results!
The results of your laser skin resurfacing treatment will continue to improve for many months as your body develops new collagen fibers. Although nothing can put a full stop to the aging process, you can enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin for many years after treatment! Laser resurfacing is also safe to be repeated in the future for maintenance.
