Rejuvenating the skin is best accomplished by stimulating healthy tissue creation. Laser skin rejuvenation is a procedure that involves the removal of upper skin layers. This promotes rapid replacement and renewal of the skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a targeted approach to the problem of correcting discolorations such as blemishes and injury scars. It also improves the appearance of fine wrinkles and smile lines. To learn more about the procedure and its benefits, read on.
How Lasers Improve Skin Condition
Laser beams are highly focused light energy. The stream of light is made up of millions of photons vibrating at the frequency of heat waves. Fractional lasers are in wide use today by dermatologists. These lasers emit pixelated beams, a multitude of tiny light beam shafts. These beams cauterize a thin layer of skin, and then the layer beneath, and so on. It’s similar to the creation of channel wounds via micro needling, but the dermatologist or skin surgeon has greater control over the depth of the wounds and the extent to which they purposely damage the tissues.
Simple, Outpatient Procedure
During a consultation, we examine the skin closely and note the severity of wrinkling, the thickness of the skin, and the actual depth and color tone of any discolorations such as acne scars, blemishes, age spots, and freckles. This allows us to customize a procedure and properly calibrate the laser instrument.
A typical treatment for skin rejuvenation that removes or damages upper-level skin layers on one side of the face takes only about an hour to perform. There’s no downtime after treatment, and there’s no special post-treatment regimen the client need follow except to keep the treated area protected from sun exposure for a week or so after treatment.
Benefits Of Laser Resurfacing
The biggest advantage over other treatment methods is that lasers deliver precise beams of energy. If a localized area of concern such as a blemish is being treated, there’s no chance of damage to the adjacent tissues. Laser resurfacing is usually a one-step procedure.
Another advantage to channel wound creation or epidermal cauterization is that the body responds to the damage by sending nutrients for rapid creation of new tissues. The process of new tissue creation isn’t finished overnight, but the results are long-lasting. The skin has a better overall tone, and texture is improved because collagen production has increased.
