What does laser skin resurfacing do?
Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to treat some of the most common skin concerns including age spots, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and other blemishes. If you want to dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin, laser resurfacing might be right for you! Here’s what happens during and after your treatment:
Damaged skin cells can leave your skin looking dull and discolored. Laser skin resurfacing can remove these skin cells to reveal smoother, more even skin underneath. Your laser resurfacing treatment uses a beam of laser light to target the very outer layers of the skin, causing it to peel over the course of your recovery. After the peeling process runs its course, you can notice improved blemishes. With dead skin cells removed, topical skin care products can also penetrate the skin more effectively, optimizing their results.
Along with targeting the outer layers of skin, laser resurfacing also affects what’s happening beneath the skin! During the treatment process, deeper layers of skin are stimulated to promote collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein that provides the framework for strong skin. As we age our body begins to produce less and less of it, resulting in wrinkles and skin laxity. By stimulating new collagen growth, you can expect stronger, more youthful-looking skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. Results will continue to appear for several months after your treatment session.
With outer blemishes removed and new collagen produced, laser skin resurfacing can reveal stronger skin. Because laser resurfacing works beyond just the surface level, you can expect results that last for many years. You can maintain your improved skin by making sure to follow a healthy skin care routine and always apply a facial sunscreen when spending time outdoors. As the aging process continues over the years, you might begin to notice new blemishes. This can be treated with a maintenance laser resurfacing session or other skin care treatment.
