Ideal Candidates for Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing treatment is most suitable for individuals with signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. Those who struggle with scars, uneven skin tone, pigmentation issues like sunspots or age spots, and rough or uneven skin texture can also benefit from the treatment.  

The individual’s skin type and tone should be compliable with the type of laser treatment chosen. Generally, people with fair to medium skin tones have more laser options available to them.

Those looking to undergo the procedure should be in good overall health, with no chronic skin conditions or any active infections in the treatment area. Non-smokers or those willing to abstain from it for a certain period ahead of the treatment are also better candidates, as smoking can adversely affect the healing process. 

 

Laser Resurfacing Pre-Procedure Guidelines

Laser resurfacing can work wonders, but a successful procedure embarks on with thorough preparation. Following these guidelines can ensure a smooth and effective journey towards healthier and more radiant skin.

Laser Resurfacing Procedure

The procedure involves the application of the laser to the treatment area, where it interacts with the skin’s surface. The concentrated light energy emitted by the laser heats and vaporizes the layers of the skin, thereby effectively removing dead or damaged cells. The laser creates micro-injuries in the skin that in turn trigger the body’s natural healing response.

The process stimulates to the production of new collagen, a key structural protein in the skin. that helps enhance skin elasticity. Over time, as the skin heals and regenerates, it becomes firmer and plumper, revealing a smoother, more youthful appearance.
