Younger skin creates an abundance of collagen, a protein that is responsible for maintaining the firmness and youthfulness of the skin. As skin ages, years of sun and pollution exposure cause the collagen to break down faster than it can be replenished. This results in a collagen deficiency, causing the skin to lose its smoothness and begin to form discolorations, lines, and wrinkles.
Laser resurfacing – the use of focused light tuned to very specific wavelengths, allowing it to be precisely focused into intense beams – turns back the hands of time by stimulating the skin into building up its collagen reserves. These treatments can vary in depth depending on the desired effect. Shallow treatments are sufficient for getting rid of sunspots and fine lines, as well as perking up tired-looking skin whereas deeper treatments can address crow’s feet and deep wrinkles to improve the tone and texture of the skin.
Also known as laser vaporization, lasabrasion and laser peel, laser resurfacing is an outpatient treatment. To treat specific areas of the face, the procedure only takes about thirty to forty-five minutes. A full-face treatment can take up to about two hours. Laser treatments can be used to improve a wide range of minor facial flaws including fine lines or wrinkles around or under the mouth, eyes and forehead; liver spots, acne and chickenpox scars; birthmarks, warts, and enlarged oil glands on the nose. The targeted approach of this treatment ensures that you will get the best possible results available to the specific area.
