Photoaging and other skin issues can result in blemishes, wrinkles, scars and other problems that get worse as you age. Several types of cosmetic treatments can be used to reduce these flaws and revitalize your skin, and non-surgical procedures such as laser skin resurfacing are a popular choice among patients.
The Los Angeles cosmetic eye surgeons at Eyesthetica use laser skin resurfacing and other non-invasive treatments to give patients a rejuvenated appearance with minimal recovery time. In this post, our team of surgeons discusses how you can achieve glowing skin with laser resurfacing.
What Issues Can Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and effective way to treat a variety of skin problems. All of the following imperfections can be treated with laser resurfacing:
- Wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth
- Acne scars
- Unevenness in texture or color
- Warts, birthmarks or liver spots
- Other blemishes from sun damage or the effects of aging
Laser skin resurfacing allows for a highly targeted approach, so your surgeon can focus on the particular skin issues that you would like corrected.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Is Performed
Your cosmetic surgeon will use concentrated beams of light to remove damaged skin. Your outer layer of skin will be removed, while the underlying skin will be stimulated for new growth by the heat of the laser.
One of the benefits of skin resurfacing is that it can be personalized to an individual’s specific needs. An experienced cosmetic surgeon can develop a skin resurfacing plan to address your problem areas and maximize the results of your procedure.
After an initial healing period, your skin will peel and a new layer of smoother, younger-looking skin will take its place. You will need to protect your skin from sun exposure after the procedure to make sure it heals properly. As your new skin begins to grow, you will notice a reduction in the appearance of photoaging and a brighter, healthier glow!
