Many things contribute to the decline in your skin’s quality. As we age, the loss of collagen, exposure to the sun, and acne can all affect the appearance and texture of the skin. There are ways to combat aging skin such as using moisturizers and sunscreen. While these things can definitely help prevent signs of aging, they may not always be enough. You may need to seek additional treatment such as laser skin resurfacing.
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that uses light technology to correct skin problems. The laser light touches the outermost layer of skin and is highly accurate at removing the damaged layer of skin. As a result, the laser helps to stimulate the production of collagen, leading to a firmer, smoother and more youthful appearance.
Fine lines and wrinkles naturally occur as we age. Lines that appear around the eyes and mouth are great spots for laser skin resurfacing. Reducing the appearance of lines in these areas will make your skin both look younger and healthier.
Laser skin resurfacing can also treat brown spots, redness and discoloration that occurs from sun exposure, aging and other skin pigmentation problems such as unwanted freckles. When skin is without discoloration, you’ll have a more balanced and even tone, making you look years younger.
Acne scars can be an unpleasant reminder of the past and difficult to cover up. While most have acne when they are younger, some can struggle with it into adulthood. Acne scars can cause uneven and discolored skin, which can affect one’s overall appearance and self-confidence.
Improves Blood Vessel Appearance
The use of laser skin resurfacing can vastly improve the look of broken capillaries and spider veins. Enlarged blood vessels can be caused by sun exposure and genetics as well as other factors such as hormones.
Encourages Collagen Production
Skin naturally loses elasticity because the body starts to produce less collagen. Other factors contributing to sagging skin include gravity, pollutants in the air, genetics and more. Laser skin resurfacing helps get your skin’s bounce back by increasing collagen production and also promoting collagen absorption to even the surrounding areas that are untreated.
One of the best things about laser skin resurfacing is that it is a non-invasive treatment and the results are natural-looking.
