How Laser Rejuvenation Can Help Your Skin

If your skin shows the effects of too much sun exposure, scarring from acne, or other damage, laser rejuvenation can deliver long-term results. Resurfacing is effective in reducing the signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, blotches, scars, and hyperpigmentation. By targeting specific areas of the skin, the treatment stimulates the growth of new cells, giving the skin a tighter, younger look. The procedure can be done as alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for best results.

Improvements in Tone and Texture

Tiny bursts of laser energy are directed at specific areas of the skin. These microbursts deliberately destroy targeted cells, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. The body, in response, produces collagen and new skin cells, creating firmer, more radiant looking skin, with improved tone and texture. The result is younger-looking skin and a rejuvenated look.

Hyperpigmentation and Scarring

Hyperpigmentation is a result of overexposure to the sun and certain skin conditions. The unevenness and blotchy look can make you look much older. The laser’s focused targeting uses pulsed light to eliminate excess melanin and tiny capillaries under the skin that cause redness. The process smooths the skin’s surface by stimulating healing processes and reduces excess pigmentation.

Laser Rejuvenation Collagen Production

As we age, collagen production slows down, resulting in sagging and fine lines in the face. Laser rejuvenation not only reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles and removes hyperpigmentation and blotchiness, it works to naturally rejuvenate the skin by stimulating natural collagen production. The increase in collagen in the lower layers of the skin plumps the surface, creating a more youthful appearance and smoothing the surface. The skin gains a younger-looking appearance. The results are long-lasting because they are the result of the skin’s own natural healing processes.
