What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser rejuvenation can effectively treat certain scars, skin discoloration, and broken blood vessels. It also effectively treats lines and blemishes on the neck and can modestly tighten sagging skin. Laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, deeper scars and early changes leading to cancerous skin growth.
What lasers are used to rejuvenate the skin?
- Ablative Lasers Ablative lasers actually remove a certain volume of skin and induce skin tightening and improvement in texture and tone. The traditional CO2 and erbium lasers are used for severe skin aging and sun damage. The latest ablative devices are fractionated, where millions of tiny dots are laid down on the skin surface surrounded by normal untreated skin. These dots represent columns of tissue that have been removed with immediate skin tightening and new collagen production which. Both can give very nice results with fast healing and reduced complications in comparison to traditional laser resurfacing.
- Non- Ablative Lasers Work beneath the surface skin layer to stimulate collagen growth and tighten underlying skin to remove fine lines with little to no healing time.
- Fractional Rejuvenation Non-invasive technology that precisely targets the small areas of skin where damage has occurred, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched and better able to assist in the healing of the damaged cells.
