Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of lasers to remove the top layer of skin. It also reaches into the deeper levels of the skin. This allows the laser to be used effectively for the removal of moles, scars and other blemishes on the skin. Laser skin resurfacing also promotes tightening of the skin and reduction of wrinkles. While laser resurfacing will not replace a facelift for permanent wrinkle removal, it can have a dramatic effect on the outward appearance of the skin and make patients feel younger and more attractive.
There are different types of lasers available to cosmetic surgeons. The Erbium (YAG) laser is used at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery. According to Dr. Dominic M. Castellano, it is used is because it is gentle but effective at removing the thin layer of aged and sun-damaged skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This allows the doctor to skillfully reduce wrinkles and tighten skin with less redness, faster healing and lower incidence of side effects than other types of lasers. Laser skin resurfacing allows the healthy, hydrated skin below the surface to be exposed, creating a more youthful appearance.
Will Laser Skin Resurfacing Work on anyone?
There is no single answer for every person, however laser skin resurfacing is effective for many patients, including younger patients and those with darker skin tones. It is a practical solution for those who want to look and feel younger but do not want to undergo a more extensive facelift procedure. The technique can improve skin tone and tautness, restoring freshness and youth to the face. Once the damaged and wrinkled layer of skin is removed and the collagen under the skin is naturally reshaped, skin looks smoother and younger. Laser skin resurfacing allows a cosmetic surgeon to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles quickly and effectively without surgery.
