The way the skin looks has an incredible influence on how we and others perceive the texture of the skin. Dead layers of skin, uneven patches of color and conditions ranging from acne to rosacea can sabotage the youthful skin texture that most people desire.
This problem becomes worse when you realize how these conditions vary in the way they persist within the skin. They may be in the upper layers or the lower layers where conventional treatments can run the risk of causing permanent damage.
The good news is that laser skin resurfacing can treat these problems while minimizing the risk of undesirable side effects. This can leave you with skin that both looks and feels amazing.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The body has an incredible ability to repair itself when it sustains damage. The problem is that many dermatological functions, while unattractive, do not typically render the skin unable to function.
This is why the skin gradually deteriorates with age. Collagen structures become loosened, which leads to wrinkles; age spots that develop as melanin accumulate in varying amounts; and conditions ranging from acne to rosacea that can diminish the perceived texture of a person’s skin while causing potentially painful problems.
Laser skin resurfacing approaches these issues by utilizing a unique technique to transmit energy. It sends high-energy laser light into the skin, which passes harmlessly through healthy skin. When it reaches problematic areas, this energy transforms into heat that induces a controlled and safe destruction of these cells.
Once these cells are destroyed, the body can begin replacing them with healthy, more attractive tissues. This leads to the tremendous results that these treatments can have.
What Issues Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
This procedure can be customized to treat a variety of issues pertaining to skin texture. This includes:
- Removing dead and dull skin from the upper layers of the skin.
- Treating melanin- and pigment-related issues in the middle layers of the skin.
- Rosacea, acne and other inflammatory issues that can make the skin look red and feel irritated.
- Minor to moderate form-related issues, which can range from raised scars to loose skin that causes minor wrinkles.
Is This Treatment Right for You?
If you have minor to moderate imperfections that affect the texture of your skin, laser skin resurfacing may be a valid option for revitalizing your image. This process leverages your body’s natural ability to heal without creating lasting wounds that will ultimately diminish your skin’s brilliance.
