Laser technology is one of the latest advancements when it comes to skincare. Medical spas and cosmetic surgery clinics have installed this technology in their practices. One of the most popular treatments is facial laser resurfacing. For clients, this treatment can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and can give you a more youthful appearance. It can also help with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, improve discoloration, warts and enlarged oil glands around the nose. This laser is designed to help stimulate existing collagen. Most facial procedures only treat the epidermal layer (surface) of the skin.
Facial laser resurfacing is built with an ablative laser which can penetrate deep into the dermis and revitalize the look of your skin. How does it work? The surgeon will use the laser beam to start slowly cutting through the top layer of the epidermis, then eventually the laser will start digging deeper into the skin. The laser sends out short, pulsating beams of light on concentrated areas targeting impurities in the dermis. Because your skin will be cut open, it is recommended that patients take two weeks off and let the skin heal. Patients choose this treatment because it corrects sun damage, aging lines and will replenish your skin.
