Love Your Skin

Try Laser Skin Resurfacing

It’s important to love the skin you’re in, but it’s also important to take good care of it. Since it’s exposed to pollutants, sunlight and the whims of the weather 24/7, your skin takes a beating to keep you healthy and confident. Fortunately, you can give it the thanks it deserves by restoring and rejuvenating it with laser skin resurfacing.

 

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing uses precisely focused beams of light to gently remove dead and damaged skin cells without harming the healthy skin underneath. The light also stimulates collagen production and leaves you with smoother, firmer and more radiant skin.

If the quality of your skin is affected by minor blemishes and skin flaws, you may be a good candidate for laser skin care treatments.
 

Here are a few of the benefits it can offer you:

  • Reduce Blood-Vessel Appearance
  • It’s estimated that more than half of women may be affected by spider veins. If you have spider veins or broken capillaries that you want to minimize, laser treatments can help. In as little as one or two sessions (depending on how prominent your blood vessels are), you can minimize the appearance of spider veins.

  • Reduce Fine Wrinkles
  • Fine wrinkles and lines are a natural sign of aging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t reduce their appearance. Laser skin resurfacing can soften fine lines and wrinkles so your skin looks younger and smoother.

  • Improve Scars
  • Scars can occur as the result of injury, surgery or acne. They can be hard to cover up with makeup and can lessen your self-esteem. Laser skin rejuvenation is a minimally invasive way to diminish scars and, in some cases, remove them completely.

  • Treat Skin Discoloration
  • Sun spots, unwanted freckles and age spots can cause your skin to look uneven and splotchy. Fortunately, laser treatments are very effective at eliminating discolorations and leaving your skin with a more balanced and even tone.

  • Reduce Pore Size
  • Are your pores larger than you want them to be? Large pores are more than just an aesthetic issue. They can also trap bacteria and other impurities in your skin, which can lead to acne development. Laser skin resurfacing is a quick solution for enlarged pores and generally offers long-lasting results. After treatment, you’ll notice that your pores appear much smaller than before and may not be as prone to blackheads and blemishes.

  • Encourage Healthy Collagen Production
  • Your skin naturally produces collagen (the substance that’s responsible for skin elasticity and firmness), but over time it becomes less efficient at this task. Laser stimulation can help your skin produce more collagen in treated areas, so it’s the perfect solution if you’re looking for ways to tighten your skin and improve elasticity.

Everyone’s skin is different, so different types of laser treatments have been developed. Check with your doctor to find out what type of laser skin resurfacing is the best fit for your specific needs and skincare goals.
