What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser Resurfacing procedures are most commonly performed around the mouth and eyes, but are also effectively used to minimize the appearance of facial scars and areas of uneven pigmentation.
At Faces, laser resurfacing is often performed along with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty. A facelift or brow lift can correct the effects gravity has on the skin, but the procedures will not correct fine lines and wrinkles in the skin or the skin texture.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure
While there are many less invasive chemical and mechanical skin resurfacing techniques, the CO2 laser is the most aggressive, with arguably the best results. Laser skin resurfacing consists of a carefully controlled burn, which produces a smoother skin surface once healed.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatments can improve the following:
- Age spots / brown spots / hyperpigmentation
- Lines and wrinkles on the face
- Scars, including acne scaring
- Facial redness
