What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
As we age, a number of factors cause the skin to lose tightness and appear discolored. Loss of volume and elasticity can cause deep and fine wrinkles, and exposure to the sun plus life experience can result in brown spots and scarring. Nonablative laser skin resurfacing smoothes and softens the skin by removing the damaged outer layer of skin and allowing new skin to grow.
Unlike traditional full-face laser skin rejuvenation, the StarLux 1440 nonablative laser system removes only the superficial external layers of the skin without damaging the delicate dermis. As the laser does not punch holes in the skin, treatments are considerably more comfortable – and there is almost no downtime after treatment.
What Skin Problems Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Nonablative laser skin resurfacing is ideal for treating many conditions associated with aging:
- Fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Acne and acne scars
- Brown spots and sun damage
- Spider veins
- Dull skin
What is the Treatment Like?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a quick outpatient procedure performed in your cosmetic dermatologist’s office. Most patients require around 3 treatments to see significant results, and after the initial three treatments they can maintain their results with one to two treatments per year.
The treatment can be performed on any area of the body, and regular laser skin rejuvenation treatments actually slow down aging – meaning that patients who rejuvenate effectively “skip a year” of their skin’s natural aging process. Continued treatments can help keep the skin of the face and whole body looking younger for many more years.
