How do Laser Treatments Work?
Laser resurfacing treatments send out brief pulses of high-energy light that removes thin sections of damaged skin layer by layer and allow for new skin growth in its place. This process stimulates the growth of new collagen, which means firmer, fresher, younger-looking skin. It also improves acne scars, surgical scars, large pores, broken blood vessels, age spots, pigment irregularity, fine lines and wrinkles.
Are Laser Treatments Painful?
Treatments are quick, convenient and feel like a prick on the skin or a temporary sunburn. The level of pain is usually minor discomfort and is generally well tolerated by patients. It has also been described as a “pins and needles” feeling.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Lasers?
Laser resurfacing is done most often on the face, but it may be done on skin in other areas of the body. The hands, neck, and chest may be avoided, because skin in those areas do not heal as well as skin in other areas of the body.
