| emmett plastic surgeryf you’ve finally beat your fight with acne, or are still fighting the battle with your past mistakes in the sun, chances are your skin shows reminders of those times. Our skin is resilient, but it does tend to hold on to things we’d rather it not. Tanning on the beach without sunscreen, or those spots that plagued your cheeks for years are not welcome. So, if you’re ready to rid yourself of those reminders, keep reading to learn about laser skin resurfacing.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing, sometimes called laser skin tightening, is a treatment that uses pulsating laser lights to tighten and correct irregularities on the skin’s surface. Using beams of light, the top skin is removed layer by layer. This approach heats the dermis and stimulates collagen growth. By removing the dead and damaged skin layers, new, more healthy skin is revealed. Once the new skin is healed, it will fill in the wrinkles, creating smoother and more radiant looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing is similar to microdermabrasion and chemical peels. But, chemical peels and microdermabrasion only treat a thin layer of skin on the surface, whereas lasers can treat much deeper layers of skin, giving you more dramatic results.

What does it treat?

Laser skin resurfacing is an amazing treatment with many benefits. Some of which include:

  • Skin tightening after just one treatment
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Improves deep depressions in the skin
  • Long-lasting results
  • Short, painless procedure with little downtime
  • Improved pigmentation
  • Smoothing out rough skin, wrinkles, and fine lines such as crêpey eyelid skin and acne scars
  • Correcting uneven pigmentation due to age spots and sun spots
  • Fading dark under eye circles

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Right For Me?

If you are looking for a non-surgical approach to treat deep lines and wrinkles, along with other surface-level imperfections like sun damage or liver spots, laser skin resurfacing may be a great option for you. Laser skin tightening and resurfacing will help give you fresh new skin that leaves you feeling more confident.
