Laser skin resurfacing is a cutting-edge skin care procedure that can reduce facial wrinkles as well as scars and blemishes. If you want to tighten your skin or remove sun spots, laser skin resurfacing treatment may be the answer to achieving your ultimate skin goals.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
This advanced procedure is ideal for tightening your skin and can reduce facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. Additionally, newer laser technologies provide plastic surgeons with an increased level of control in laser surfacing, which allows for exceptional precision. This becomes especially important for sensitive treatment sites.
Laser skin resurfacing uses short, concentrated, and pulsating beams of light on irregular skin. This removes unwanted and damaged skin in an especially precise manner, one skin layer at a time.
Our practice utilizes the Erbium-YAG resurfacing laser. The device works by removing the outermost layer of skin in a controlled way so that fresh new skin can grow in, visibly improving fine lines, skin texture, and overall appearance. This procedure is generally combined with a facelift or other procedure under general anesthesia. However, it can be accomplished under oral sedation, with some injectable or topical numbing medicine as well.
