How Does Skin Resurfacing Laser Treatments Work?
We use skin resurfacing treatments to treat aged and sun damaged skin. It provides a laser to heat deep layers of the skin to promote collagen production and reduce pigmentation, wrinkles and continues to work post-treatment to improve skin texture & tone. This helps to diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and scarring.
The laser treatment targets both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. By targeting the epidermal layers, the uneven layers of the skin are removed. And by targeting the dermal layers, collagen production in the skin is stimulated, resulting in faster healing time. The combination of these two techniques means that any damaged skin is removed while new skin is produced to replace it. With regular use, this technique helps in improving both skin texture and appearance.
Skin resurfacing laser treatments can be used for a wide range of skin problems, including:
- Reducing the appearance of scars
- Smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin lesions caused by unevenness in the skin surface.
- Treatment of age spots, warts, and sagging skin.
