What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help rejuvenate the skin and reduce the effects of the sun, ageing, and some facial skin disorders.
These treatments are safe, effective, and convenient.
Also, the cost of cosmetic laser skin resurfacing is minimal compared to many other treatment options.
How does it work?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a method for diminishing the appearance of imperfections on the skin’s surface.
During this procedure, a laser is used to dissolve the molecular bonds of the damaged skin cells layer by layer until a smoother, more uniform skin appearance is achieved.
The procedure may also be referred for anti-ageing treatments because of its anti-ageing benefits, because the damaged layers of skin are peeled away.
The two types of lasers most commonly used in laser resurfacing are carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium. Each laser vaporizes skin cells damaged at the surface-level.
- CO2 Laser Resurfacing
This method has been used for years to treat different skin issues, including wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and other conditions.The newest version of CO2 laser resurfacing (fractionated CO2) uses very short pulsed light energy (known as ultrapulse) or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage.
- Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Erbium laser resurfacing is designed to remove surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest.
If you have a darker skin tone, erbium laser resurfacing may work better for you.
Am I a good candidate?
Laser skin rejuvenation is an effective procedure for patients with lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or superficial facial scars such as acne scarring that does not respond to gentler treatments.
