Laser or light energy has been used in medical procedures for decades. When concentrated in the right spectrum, light energy can be used to target tissue cells. With laser facial skin resurfacing, light energy is used to exfoliate and remove damaged skin cells in the epidermis layer of the skin while it stimulates healing and repair in the dermis. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute in Miami, we offer laser skin resurfacing treatments to produce more youthful skin for our patients.
Laser facial skin resurfacing focuses on removing the damaged skin cells that cause visible signs of aging, as well as other skin imperfections. The laser energy targets the top layer of damaged or pigmented skin cells, revealing new skin that is firmer, evenly toned and improved in texture. The heat from the laser energy can also stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of skin, creating firmer, more youthful skin as it heals.
Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing
There are many skin flaws that can be corrected with laser skin resurfacing. Pigmentation, scar tissue, aging issues and lost elasticity can be addressed with laser skin treatments. Some of the benefits of resurfacing the skin with laser treatments:
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Fade age or brown spots
- Remove acne and pox scarring
- Minimize large pores
- Repair sun damaged skin
- Improve tone and complexion
Laser facial skin resurfacing can require some downtime and recovery while the skin heals. The top surface of the skin will be red and flake away over the following days. As the new skin cells are revealed, the benefits of the treatment become noticeable, improving over the following weeks as the skin repairs.
