What Are The Benefits of Skin Resurfacing?
Have you ever stopped to think about what your skin actually does for you? It works every day to help hold you together. It protects your organs from the sun’s rays. It keeps environmental factors, such as dirt, pollution, and smoke out of your body. It moves and stretches with you as you go about your daily routines. Your skin is utterly amazing. Maybe it’s time for you to thank your skin and treat it to some laser resurfacing!
What Is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser Resurfacing is a type of skin care treatment that uses the Cynosure PICO laser and pressure waves to help improve skin texture and appearance. There are two basic types of laser resurfacing treatments, ablative and non-ablative. Ablative treatments include the use of carbon dioxide to remove the outer layer of skin and thereby getting rid of scars, warts, wrinkles, and other skin irregularities. At Flawless Med Spa, we use the Pico Laser Resurfacing system which is non-ablative. Non-ablative treatments do not remove skin layers but uses pressure waves to remove imperfections in the top layers of dermal tissue while creating micro-wounds in lower layers of the skin to speed up the production of collagen and elastin.
What Are The Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Some of the benefits of laser skin resurfacing treatments include the following:
- Improving uneven skin texture
- Improving a dull complexion
- Reducing and improving scarring
- Reducing the appearance of acne-related concerns such as redness and scarring
- Improving sun-damaged and aged skin
- Reducing the look of hyperpigmentation and evening out color
- Improving the skin’s texture, making it smoother and healthier-looking
- Boosting the production of collagen and elastin which will make your skin look brighter and healthier and improve sagging
- There is no downtime because procedures are non-invasive
If you are ready to fight signs of aging and improve your appearance but you aren’t ready for surgical facelift options, then skin resurfacing is a great first step. The improvements in your skin will also help you feel more confident as you go about your daily routine and that is a great benefit in itself!
