What we wish we knew about twenty years ago: wear sunscreen every day, don’t mess with those spots on your face, and invest in a great moisturizer. Hindsight is 20/20, as they say. Though you may have smooth, acne-free skin now, the dark spots from past breakouts may linger. Laser skin resurfacing can help you get the smooth, clear look of your skin back, even after acne or years of sun damage. Keep reading to learn about laser skin resurfacing, which can help you get a more youthful-looking complexion.
What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing, also referred to as laser skin tightening, is a treatment that uses pulsating laser lights to tighten and correct irregularities of texture and tone on the skin. Using beams of light, the skin is removed layer by layer. This heats the dermis and stimulates new collagen growth.
Dead, damaged, or scarring in the skin layers are removed and healthy skin is left instead. Once the newly revealed skin is healed you are left with a smoother look and more radiant skin. Laser skin resurfacing is similar and often compared to microdermabrasion and chemical peels, but, those resurfacing methods are only able to treat a thin top layer of skin. If you want more dramatic results, you want to reach deeper layers of the skin.
