As we age our skin ages as well. When our skin ages, we begin to lose facial volume and develop wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds, and expression lines. Environmental effects and sun exposure cause even more wrinkles, and exponentially make your skin worse.
As we age our skin also loses vital compounds such as collagen and elastin. Collagen gives our skin its smooth, supple look and feel as well as providing our faces with its youthful contours and volume. Elastin gives skin its elastic consistency and the ability to “bounce-back”. Using laser skin resurfacing we are able to combat these effects of aging and not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines but stimulate the production of these vital compounds!
How does it work?
Laser skin resurfacing removed skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
The lasers penetrate the skin’s surface and using high-energy beams stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen. This collagen helps restore the lost facial volume due to age, as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Side effects are also very limited. Occasionally patients may experience light swelling and light redness, however most of these side effects will disappear within a day or two. And your skin will continuously improve in the following days to weeks.
