What is Laser Resurfacing?
Everyone’s skin gets damaged with age. Prolonged exposure to the sun can damage your skin, and your skin naturally wrinkles as you grow older. Laser skin resurfacing is a safe procedure that removes damaged skin, triggering the growth of new skin that’s tighter, more clear, firmer, and smoother.
Pure Medical Spa can develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help you have tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin.
Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can help alleviate many skin conditions, including wrinkles, mild to moderate acne scars, age spots, sun damage, discoloration, and more. Here are some of the many benefits of this procedure:
Who Is a good candidate for laser resurfacing?
A good candidate for skin resurfacing is anyone who wants to be free of wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, facial moles, skin tags, warts, acne scars, skin discoloration, freckles, or large pores. The procedure requires healing, so a healthy immune system is key. Smoking can prolong healing, so nonsmokers recover more quickly from laser skin resurfacing. Also, it’s best if you’re not at risk for cold sores or fever blisters, as this treatment can cause breakouts.
You’ll be advised of the steps to take during your initial consultation, but smokers need to stop smoking two weeks prior to avoid a delay in healing. You also need to avoid taking any medications or supplements such as ibuprofen or aspirin – anything that affects blood clotting.
Most treatments take 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
Laser energy removes the top layer of skin, or epidermis. The heat generated stimulates collagen production, which results in a new layer of smoother, younger-looking skin.
Depending on the area affected by the procedure, full recovery typically takes ten days to three weeks.
