Laser Skin Resurfacing: Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation
Clear, bright skin is a feature that most people aspire to and work hard to achieve and maintain. As we age, a numbers of genetic and environmental factors make it difficult to upkeep glowing skin. The natural aging process causes collagen to diminish, leaving skin looser and droopy. In addition, sun exposure, smoking and alcohol consumption and poor nutrition can all contribute to changes in appearance such as lines, wrinkles and age spots. Fortunately, laser skin resurfacing offers a pain-free and minimally invasive way to rejuvenate and refresh your skin.
Laser skin resurfacing can effectively treat a number of skin problems, including:
- Fine lines such as crow's feet
- Acne/chicken pox scars
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Dark under eye circles
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a precise laser light to vaporize imperfections on the top layer of the skin, revealing the fresh, smooth skin below. The LightPod Era® laser that delivers a powerful beam with precision to the delicate areas and contours of the faces, including the nose and skin surrounding the eyes.
Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Many patients see significant rejuvenation and improvement in the appearance of their skin after just one treatment.
What Is Recovery Like?
The LightPod Era procedure offers several advantages when compared to traditional resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, including a shorter recovery time. While the exact downtime will differ among patients and depends on the size of the treatment area, the laser eliminates the bleeding and bruising typically associated with resurfacing procedures.
