Are you uncomfortable in your skin? Has your skin been damaged by excess sun exposure or acne breakouts? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, and you are wondering how to clear your damaged skin, laser skin resurfacing may be the answer to your skin woes.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure in which beams of light energy are used to improve the tone and texture of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing can treat a range of skin conditions including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, enlarged pores, rough texture, and age spots.
How does laser skin resurfacing clear damaged skin
There are two main types of laser resurfacing treatments, ablative and non-ablative.
Ablative lasers clear the skin by removing the damaged outer layer of the skin. Removing this thin layer helps to improve surface imperfections such as discoloration, scars, age spots, and fine wrinkles.
Non-ablative lasers leave the outer layer of skin intact, while treating collagen fibers in the deep dermal layer. This causes existing collagen fibers to contract, and also stimulates new collagen that makes the skin tighter and smoother. The additional collagen also improves the health and quality of the skin. Non-ablative lasers can tighten loose skin and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
There are also hybrid laser skin resurfacing lasers on the market that combine both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. They can renew and refresh the skin with minimal downtime.
