What Conditions Can Laser Resurfacing Treat?
- Posted on: Jul 31 2023
Taking care of your skin can be challenging at times. With everything that keeps us busy, your skin care can end up on the back burner. Even the most diligent of skincare sometimes needs a helping hand. That’s where laser resurfacing comes in. Let’s explore what laser resurfacing is and what conditions it can treat.
Understanding Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is the process of removing a superficial layer of skin to improve your skin’s appearance. Laser skin resurfacing is designed to slightly damage the skin to induce the body’s healing response. This is primarily done to uncover the younger skin underneath and induce collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a key component of our skin and plays a major role in the elasticity, radiance, and health of our skin. However, collagen production naturally depletes as we age. This is a major factor in developing loose skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin as we age. That’s why it is often harder for the body to heal blemishes the older we are.
The conditions treated by laser resurfacing are improved by the natural introduction of collagen. Let’s explore some common conditions that laser resurfacing can help.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles can often be caused by loose skin beginning to sag. It can also be caused by stiff skin compressing and creating wrinkles. Laser resurfacing can help reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen will help the skin regain some elasticity and tighten the skin. This will help soften any fine lines on the skin.
Scarring is the body’s natural response to severe wounds. Laser resurfacing can accelerate the fading process and help reduce the appearance of scars.
Age spots are often caused by UV sun damage. Laser resurfacing can help break down the pigmentation and reduce the appearance. The extra collagen produced will also help accelerate the fading process.
