Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular ways for our patients to reveal a fresh, new look without any invasive surgery. This minimally-invasive procedure has been wowing patients across the country with its endless benefits and skin healing properties. Let’s go over our top five benefits of laser skin resurfacing treatments.
1. Laser Skin Resurfacing has a Quick Recovery
Healing from your laser skin resurfacing treatment only takes about three to 10 days depending on the size of the treated area and the depth of the laser. While ablative laser
resurfacing can take up to three weeks to recover from, the non-ablative skin resurfacing technique used at Nease Cosmetic Surgery takes minimal downtime and recovery. You should expect your skin to be red and feel sensitive for the first few days following treatment, but this typically resolves on its own by scabbing over.
2. Laser Skin Resurfacing Triggers Collagen Production
One of the biggest benefits of laser skin resurfacing is it triggers the body’s natural production of collagen to produce long-lasting results that keep getting better over time. Collagen is a protein in our body that adds volume and elasticity to the skin resulting in a healthy and refreshed look. With laser skin resurfacing, you can say goodbye to your fine lines and wrinkles, and hello face full of smooth collagen.
3. Laser Skin Resurfacing Evens Out Skin Tone and Texture
Laser skin resurfacing also helps to improve uneven skin tone and texture. Uneven skin texture is a difficult problem to have and can’t always be treated using serums and creams. By using lasers to remove the outermost layers of skin, we are creating a smooth and even surface, resulting in an improvement in the appearance of uneven texture.
4. Laser Skin Resurfacing Improves Acne Scarring
Even more frustrating than uneven skin texture, acne scars are a tough problem to solve. Over-the-counter and prescription creams can only do so much in helping to improve acne scarring. Laser skin resurfacing gets to the core of the problem by breaking down the scar tissue created by the acne, and revealing the healthy new skin underneath.
5. Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Be Combined with Other Treatments
The best part about laser skin resurfacing is that it doesn’t have to be done alone. We actually recommend using laser skin resurfacing in combination with your other favorite skin rejuvenation procedures, like a facelift or brow lift. Combining laser skin resurfacing with your cosmetic procedures can only enhance and maintain your age-defying results.
