Laser Skin Resurfacing
Also known as skin resurfacing and fractional resurfacing Laser resurfacing is an effective way of reversing the damaging effects of sun exposure, aging and lifestyle habits (such as smoking) on the quality, color and texture of your skin. Resurfacing lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers use rapid pulses of high-intensity light to remove the damaged upper layers of your skin, thereby smoothing and tightening the skin, removing wrinkles, and correcting pigmentation problems. Non-ablative lasers are non-wounding and less invasive; they act by stimulating collagen growth and tightening the underlying skin.
When to Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing
- If your skin is sun-damaged with wrinkling around your eyes and mouth as well as skin laxity in your lower eyelid area
- If you have experienced irregular changes in your skin color, such as blotchiness or brown spots
- If you have scars that have made the surface of your skin uneven • If you have certain precancerous skin growths
