Laser Skin Resurfacing

An aesthetic skincare method using targeted lasers to improve skin texture and appearance.

Understanding Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing, an increasingly popular procedure in the world of aesthetic skincare, is a technologically advanced method which uses focused light beams to rejuvenate damaged skin.

With its rise in popularity, it's essential to understand what laser skin resurfacing involves. The procedure harnesses the power of lasers to eliminate skin irregularities such as wrinkles, spots, scars or uneven textures. It can be performed by professionals at aesthetic clinics like Dermatology Clinics and medical spas.

Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing Techniques

There are mainly two types of laser techniques used in this procedure: Ablative and Non-ablative lasers.

Ablative Lasers

Ablative Lasers are intense lasers that remove thin layers of the skin. The most commonly used ablative lasers are Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser and Erbium Laser. These procedures offer noticeable improvements but come with a longer recovery time due to their intensity.

Non-Ablative Lasers

Non-Ablative Lasers are less invasive than their ablative counterparts; they heat up the underlying skin tissue without harming the surface. They stimulate collagen production which helps rejuvenate the skin over time. Fraxel is a widely used non-ablative laser.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

The primary advantage of laser skin resurfacing is its ability to treat varied cosmetic issues like wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, age spots and tightens loose or sagging skin effectively. Furthermore, new collagen formation during the healing process leaves the skin looking younger and smoother.

A reputable practice like Aesthetic Skincare Clinic offers these procedures with expert advice, ensuring each client's unique skincare needs are met.

The Procedure: What to Expect?

The procedure starts with a consultation where the skincare specialist determines the best laser treatment for your skin. During the treatment, your eyes are covered to protect them from laser light. Anesthesia is applied depending on the intensity of the laser used. The laser beam is then directed at targeted areas on your skin. Post-treatment care includes keeping the skin moisturized, avoiding sun exposure and using doctor-recommended skincare products.

Before opting for laser skin resurfacing, it's crucial to consult with an experienced professional who can provide a realistic view of what to expect during and after treatment. To learn more about these services, visit Dermatology Services.
