Laser Skin Resurfacing
The skin changes in various ways as we age. The pigmentation can change, and dark spots or hyperpigmentation can alter the even tone of the skin. Skin becomes thinner and less firm, resulting in lines, wrinkles and sagging. To maintain more youthful skin, there are a variety of treatments that can address these aging issues. One of the options to rejuvenate the face and reduce facial wrinkles is laser skin resurfacing, available at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Laser skin treatments use light energy to target skin cells. There are various skin laser treatments, from hair removal to intense pulsed light (IPL) or photo facial therapy. The difference involves the spectrum of light energy used and what skin cells are targeted. In laser skin resurfacing, the treatment sends light energy to target damaged skin cells to remove them from the surface. At the same time, the lower layers of skin cells are affected by the heat, stimulating the production of collagen. The old, damaged skin cells are removed, and the collagen helps heal and repair the skin for a firmer, smoother appearance.
Reduce Facial Wrinkles and Scarring
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are ideal for combatting the first signs of facial wrinkles, dark spots or scars. The targeted approach can treat specific areas of the face to remove damaged skin and stimulate collagen production. Laser skin resurfacing can smooth fine lines and wrinkles and fade sunspots, scars, large pores and other facial skin imperfections.
Laser skin resurfacing is minimally invasive, but it can result in red, peeling skin after the treatment as the old skin cells flake away. Over the following weeks, the skin will heal, and the rejuvenated skin is revealed with fewer lines, wrinkles and flaws.
