Smooth, Healthy Skin Awaits

The skin is a protective armor that protects your body and internal organs from harmful UV rays, toxins, impurities, bacteria, viruses, and parasites. But as you go through life, the protective armor of your skin is constantly damaged, leading to wrinkles, scars, textural irregularities, sun damage, sunspots, and pigmentation problems. Laser skin resurfacing is a simple, non-invasive procedure that polishes the armor, making your skin look smooth and healthy again.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure similar to laser hair removal, that uses lasers to improve the appearance of your skin. The laser beam passes over the surface of your skin, removing the damaged outer layer. This encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells and collagen, resulting in smoother, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing, like RF microneedling, can treat numerous skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and more.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works

Laser skin resurfacing works by creating thousands of tiny laser wounds in the skin. These wounds prompt the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which gives the skin a more youthful appearance. The laser also removes the outer layer of skin, called the stratum corneum, and reveals the fresh, new skin underneath. Over time, as your body produces new collagen fibers, your skin looks firm, taut, and youthful.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

  • Non-invasive treatment
  • No incisions, injections, or chemicals
  • Minimal discomfort during the treatment
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Improves overall skin texture
  • Targets your specific skin conditions
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • No post-treatment downtime

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

What happens during laser skin resurfacing?

During laser skin resurfacing, your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing agent will be applied to your skin. You will then be protected with eye shields and given goggles to wear. The laser will be directed over the surface of your skin, and you may feel a warm sensation as the laser passes over. Finally, your skin will be cleansed, and a cool, soothing gel will be applied.

What are the side effects of laser skin resurfacing?

You may experience some redness, swelling, and discomfort, but this is temporary and will resolve within a few days. The side effects are minimal.

When will I see the results of laser skin resurfacing?

Recovery time is usually short, and you can expect to see results within a few weeks. You will notice the results within a few weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers and skin cells.
