Do you suffer from unwanted skin blemishes on your face that are affecting your mood, work, or relationships? If so, laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. You are warmly invited to learn more information about the treatment and whether or not it might work in your case.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing has been surging in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. The treatment is effective in safely treating conditions like fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and other blemishes.
One reason laser skin resurfacing is growing in popularity is because it offers advantages over alternative treatments because it does not involve bleeding, bruising, and long recovery periods. The lasers of today are safer and gentler than ever before.
Most skin treatments work in the same basic way. They involve the removal of outer layers of skin to encourage new skin cells to thrive, filling in lines, wrinkles, and other crevices. It was not so long ago that the only treatment option was dermabrasion and harsh methods that are more invasive and require significant downtimes.
Although these treatment methods can promote enhanced skin, they do not always offer predictable results. Laser skin resurfacing has the advantage of using laser light to precisely target specific skin layers.
When it comes to laser skin resurfacing, there are different types of lasers. At Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare, we use the Fraxel laser due to the amazing results it can provide. Improvements offered by laser skin resurfacing can be dramatic and long-lasting but do not appear overnight. It will take some time for the effects of new skin growth to become evident.
Good Candidates for Treatment
Everyone does not make a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. For example, people who are prone to scarring, have a skin disorder, or take certain medications may make poor candidates for the procedure.
With that being said, the vast majority of people who are interested in laser skin resurfacing tend to qualify for the treatment. Good candidates tend to have the following in common:
Good overall health with no underlying disorders or conditions that could interfere with the treatment
Realistic expectations regarding the treatment, downtime, and results
A skin issue that Fraxel skin rejuvenation can treat, like acne and/or surgical scars and fine lines and wrinkles
