Laser skin resurfacing has exploded in popularity recently among those who wish to minimize the effects of aging, the sun, and certain facial skin conditions. The treatment has been proven to be safe, effective, and fast. Laser facial rejuvenation has the ability to remove damaged surface skin layers and trigger the formation of new collagen and skin cells beneath the surface of the skin to bring about more youthful, healthier skin
What Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser resurfacing is a technique for creating a reduction of facial imperfections on the superficial layers of your skin. During this procedure, we use a laser to break up the molecular bonds of damaged skin. The precision of the laser allows us to transmit laser energy layer by layer until a more uniform and smooth facial appearance is produced.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
For most patients, the treatment works extremely well at reducing the appearance of scars, lines and wrinkles, and abnormal skin pigment. However, it is important to note that the treatment is not for everyone. Patients with certain skin tones, skin types, and underlying medical conditions may not make appropriate candidates.
Laser skin resurfacing has been found to be an efficient treatment for those with lines and wrinkles, abnormal pigmentation, and scars caused by acne or injury. Optimal candidates are those with non-oily, elastic skin that is not susceptible to the development of scars after minor injuries.
Good candidates for this treatment are those with realistic expectations regarding their potential outcomes. If you are considering undergoing this treatment, you owe it to yourself to become educated on both the benefits and potential limitations. Those with lighter colored skin tend to make better candidates than others, although the treatment works well for many skin types.
The best candidates are those who do not have any major medical problems, existing health conditions, or are taking certain types of prescription medications that can prolong bleeding or cause unnecessary risks during the recovery. Fortunately, the great majority of patients make suitable candidates for laser facial rejuvenation.
