With so many new advancements in medical technology, it’s no wonder why more and more men and women choose to undergo cosmetic surgery. There are also a number of non-invasive procedures that can help turn back the clock. Consider this brief overview of how laser resurfacing can redefine and rejuvenate your skin:
• The Basics of Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment option in which short, concentrated pulses of light are directed at the skin to vaporize superficial, damaged skin cells without overheating the skin. One of the most common lasers used during skin resurfacing is a fractional CO2 laser which causes low-level damage to the skin while promoting collagen growth. By utilizing this type of laser, resurfacing treatments can not only help to reduce the signs of aging, but also help the skin to repair itself.
• Ideal Candidates
Individuals who are interested in reducing the look of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone and texture are all good candidates for laser resurfacing treatments. In some cases, laser resurfacing can also help correct deeper wrinkles and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Unlike other laser resurfacing methods that treat wrinkles gradually over several visits, the Lumenis Ultra Pulse fractional CO2 laser produces dramatic and immediate results with only one treatment. Using two different treatment modalities, the laser can treat the deeper wrinkles and scars such as those due to acne scarring and traumatic scars including burns(Deep FX) as well as pigmentation changes and fine wrinkles in the more superficial skin level(Active FX)
