Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments Revitalize Your Skin
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are used to treat skin that is aging, has had extensive sun exposure, has acne scars, or scars in general and for overall skin rejuvenation. Many problems such as thick, rough skin as well as blemishes, acne and acne scars can be treated with a variety of laser treatments that penetrate deeper into the skin to give smooth, tight skin free. Laser skin resurfacing also encourages the growth of collagen, tightening the skin and restoring radiance we associate with youth.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments can be done with a variety of lasers that penetrate into the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing with a fractionated CO2 laser has been the anti aging breakthrough of the decade according to many doctors. This laser skin resurfacing treatment combines the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers ( thought to be the gold standard for wrinkle removal) with a new application technique that delivers powerful results with our the traditionally harsh side effects.
Laser skin resurfacing with a fractionated CO2 laser such as Mixto or Fraxel Repair Co2 both work by using beams of energy to penetrate the skin in small sections stimulating the production of collagen. As the beams of energy are penetrating the skin in targeted sections the surface skin remains intact giving maximum results with minimal recovery time.
Fractionated co2 laser skin resurfacing is usually performed with 1 or 2 treatments and with a downtime of around 4-7 days. Laser skin resurfacing is the treatment of choice for acne scarring and gives excellent results. Another option is the Fraxel: restore treatment which has virtually no downtime but requires 4-6 treatments to achieve similar results.
