Is your skin showing signs of premature aging? Did you know that you can repair skin damage caused by the harsh Tampa sun with laser skin resurfacing? After many years of fun in the sun, your skin is probably a little damaged from overexposure to UV rays, chlorine, salt water, and the chemicals in sunscreen. Other lifestyle factors can accelerate the signs of aging like smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, malnutrition (poor diet), and chronic stress. Laser resurfacing can repair skin damage, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and erase skin irregularities like acne scars and blemishes. This procedure can also help reduce liver spots, warts, birthmarks, and enlarged pores to create a more even skin surface.
What is Laser Resurfacing?
The laser skin resurfacing technique uses short and concentrated light beams on irregular skin areas. Plastic surgeons use the most advanced laser technologies to precisely control the laser on delicate areas of the skin. This procedure removes damaged skin on the top layer of the skin- known as the epidermis, while heating the underlying skin- known as the dermis. This method will also stimulate the new growth of collagen fibers to improve the skin’s elasticity. Once the areas treated heal, new skin forms and is much softer and firmer than before.
Laser resurfacing is very popular as it can erase years off your appearance and is minimally invasive. It is also commonly called lasabrasion, laser vaporization, and laser skin peel. A major reason this anti-aging technique is so very popular is adults of all ages can greatly benefit from this method of repairing damage to the skin. Even women in their 20s have seen a vast improvement in the appearance of their skin- especially if they had bad acne in their adolescence. Women with pre-mature signs of aging and people of all ages will see rejuvenated results from this procedure. “My patients are thrilled by the results of the laser resurfacing” says Dr. Dominic M. Castellano, a certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa “the laser reduces fine lines, wrinkles and removes blemishes without surgery.”
Laser Resurfacing – Safe on Skin with Quick Recovery
The laser skin resurfacing procedure to help repair damaged skin is minimally invasive and has a brief recovery time. Individual healing times will vary based on the amount of area treated, and the concentration needed on the areas- but redness can be expected for a few days following the treatment. The Erbium-YAG laser used by Dr. Castellano is one of the most advanced lasers for skin resurfacing. The Erbium laser is actually absorbed by the skin more effectively than the more common CO2 laser. This means that the patient will experience less chance of thermal injury or heat damage to the skin. The Erbium Laser used at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery makes it easier to repair many different types of skin conditions without the skin discoloration associated with older laser treatment methods.
