While there are many different non-surgical skin treatments available, one of the most comprehensive and effective is laser skin resurfacing.
The popularity of laser treatments is due in large part to their versatility.
While many non-surgical treatments offer fantastic results, they are more limited in the corrections and improvements they offer. However, with laser resurfacing, you can treat a variety of concerns (on both the face and body), rejuvenate your skin, and improve your overall comfort and confidence.
What Can Laser Resurfacing Achieve?
Below are seven of the most popular and transformative improvements that laser skin resurfacing offers:
1. Sun-Damaged Skin/Uneven Texture
Laser treatments can work in several different ways depending on the type of correction desired. To improve skin texture and treat skin blemishes like sun damage, laser energy exfoliates the skin by removing the uppermost layer of skin. This helps new and healthy skin become prominent.
Laser treatments also work by heating the deeper layers of skin to stimulate the production of essential proteins, such as collagen. This helps to strengthen the new skin, rejuvenating its appearance to help your skin glow.
2. Mild Acne and Facial Scarring
Facial scars, including acne scars, can cause many to feel self-conscious and embarrassed. With laser treatments, the laser energy is directed at the treatment area to heat the underlying tissue. This increases the production of collagen while stimulating the healing of damaged and scarred skin. After laser treatment, the skin will look and feel smooth and natural.
3. Age Spots and Discoloration
As we age, our skin can develop brown and red blotches. These blemishes can detract from the appearance of our skin and make us look older than we want. However, laser treatments can improve the presence of these discolorations on the skin.
The laser light energy is used to break up pigmentation in the skin while promoting collagen to improve the health and strength of the skin.
In the end, you can look forward to smoother and more blemish-free skin.
4. Wrinkles and Lines
Whether from age or lifestyle, some of the most common skin concerns are wrinkles and fine lines. While most common and visible on the face, skin creases can appear all over the body.
Laser skin resurfacing can rejuvenate the appearance of worn-down skin by shedding the top layer of skin and promoting collagen in the target area. This helps create healthier, smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin that can help you feel comfortable with your skin’s appearance!
5. Enlarged Pores
Laser skin resurfacing can be used to shrink the presence of large pores. The ablative laser will remove the top layers of skin, and the increased collagen will help the remaining skin become healthy and attractive.
No longer will you need to worry about unsightly pores, especially on the face.
6. Mild Skin Laxity
One of the most common cosmetic skin concerns is skin laxity. Whether from age, lifestyle, or life events, loose skin can detract from your appearance. However, laser skin treatments can tighten and firm up the skin.
In addition to increasing the production of collagen in the skin, laser energy also promotes the production of elastin, which is a protein responsible for the skin’s elasticity. With greater amounts of collagen and elastin, you will notice tighter, smoother, more revitalized skin that you’ll want to show off to the world.
7. Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Unsightly spider and varicose veins can keep women and men from wearing certain clothes (especially dresses and shorts) and participating in some of their favorite activities.
Laser skin treatments can minimize the appearance of these unwanted veins without harming any of the surrounding skin or tissue. When laser energy is directed at these veins, the blood vessels heat up and eventually collapse.
After your laser treatment, you can look forward to smooth, blemish- and vein-free skin that can help you live your life to the fullest.
What Other Non-surgical Treatments Can Help You?
While laser skin resurfacing offers a variety of improvements and benefits to women and men, some patients combine other non-surgical procedures with their laser treatment to achieve even more dramatic improvements to how they look and feel.
Some of these other treatments include chemical peels and microdermabrasion. After a combination procedure, you can look forward to new, healthy, and refreshed skin that can leave you smiling with confidence and pride!
