It’s not really fair, is it? You have made it through your teenage years, and any worries about acne should be behind you – but what if the acne scars remain? You don’t have to live with them. Laser skin resurfacing offers a nonsurgical and effective way to get rid of those scars!
What is laser skin resurfacing?
In a laser skin resurfacing treatment, short, pulsating beams of light are concentrated on the skin’s problem areas. It removes damaged skin layers one at a time, after which new skin cells are created. Scars are gone and new, smooth skin is formed. It can also be used to make surgical scars or scars caused by an accident or trauma less noticeable, and can make these scars less painful.
There are a few things you should know about laser skin resurfacing, though. It may take more than one treatment, and depending on the issue you would like treated, your doctor may recommend an additional treatment, such as a filler. You should also know that it can take time to see results, as it takes time for new skin cells to grow. And, your doctor will have specific instructions for you to follow before and after the procedure – for instance, you will have to stop smoking 2 weeks before, and you’ll have to avoid the sun for weeks before and after the treatment.
The benefits of laser skin resurfacing
The main benefit of laser skin resurfacing is that it is very effective. It is also noninvasive and safe – it is FDA approved. Another benefit is that it treats the specific area that needs to be treated, without affecting tissue around it. There is also hardly any downtime after laser skin resurfacing – most patients can get right back into their daily routine either right after the procedure or the next day. Patients of all skin tones and types can have this procedure done.
