Your Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing
Face rejuvenation and anti-aging regimens are getting more advanced by the day. Laser skin resurfacing is one such technology that can be deployed for a wide range of applications, from anti-aging skin rejuvenation to scar and stretch mark treatment.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing removes surface imperfections by stripping away dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production. A targeted layer creates small microchannels in the skin and triggers the body’s natural healing process to literally resurface the skin. New, healthy skin cells will replace the dead skin on the surface along with pigmentation spots, scars, and wrinkles. Enlarged pores, dull skin, and sun damage can also be approved with skin resurfacing. The heat generated by the laser energy also stimulates collagen production to firm the skin for long-lasting bright and healthy skin
How Safe is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is generally considered to be a very safe cosmetic procedure. However, it must be performed by a qualified professional who uses state-of-the-art equipment. It is important not to do an excessive amount of laser resurfacing or try to treat multiple areas of the same area.

What Are the Risks of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Your doctor will tell you if there are any complications that might occur during or after resurfacing treatment. The most common side effect of laser resurfacing are redness and swelling around the treated area. If you received treatment for hyperpigmentation, the pigmented lesions will scab and fall off after a few days. In certain cases, your skin may become more sensitive to chemicals in cosmetics or the air. It’s important to avoid sun exposure for a few days while your skin is healing since this could cause the pigmented spots on your skin to become permanent. These side effects are usually temporary and will subside as your skin heals but make sure to speak with your provider if the symptoms persist or if you have any concerns.
Why Choose Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing will not only reduce signs of aging but also improve overall skin health. The importance of skin resurfacing is to renew the youthfulness of the skin and enhance your appearance. This laser treatment targets a wide variety of skin concerns and can even prevent or delay the formation of wrinkles by stimulating new collagen growth. Another benefit of laser skin resurfacing is that it requires minimal downtime and recovery. Plus, you will not have to worry about surgical scars or anesthesia!
