covering scars with laser proceduresYour skin is an amazing organ that has the power to heal and renew itself each day. But despite its remarkable abilities, it still suffers damage that can leave behind scars, blemishes, and signs of aging such as wrinkles and spots.

With the power of laser skin resurfacing, however, many people are able to see a renewed skin appearance, reducing problems that, in the past, were often considered to be permanent.

How laser resurfacing works

With laser skin resurfacing, your aesthetician uses a very precise, targeted beam of light that can directly impact the unwanted, damaged areas of skin. The laser’s benefits are twofold: it effectively removes the outer layer of skin while stimulating new collagen growth in the lower layer. When the area heals, the skin is smoother and firmer. The laser is also versatile, allowing many different skin tones to be treated without the risk of skin lightening.

Laser treatment for acne scars

As if having acne isn’t emotionally damaging enough, the more severe cases of acne tend to leave behind scars that cannot be covered with makeup. They can be embarrassing and can severely affect someone’s self-confidence even years after the acne is gone. But with laser skin resurfacing, you may be able to show off a smoother, firmer face again. The laser is also very effective in improving chicken pox scars.

Treating sun damaged skin

We all know what the sun and the years can do to a face. Fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots can make us look - and feel - much older than we are. Although there are a variety of other possible solutions for wrinkles such as dermal fillers and a variety of skin rejuvenation procedures, many people are also good candidates for laser skin resurfacing. The laser generally provides a more dramatic improvement and can effectively treat those vertical lip lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles in the eye area, and more. Talk with a qualified aesthetician to find out the best options to give your face a more youthful appearance. He or she can recommend the procedures that best fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Choosing the right aesthetician

Laser skin resurfacing can offer you a remarkable change with more radiant, smooth skin that isn’t possible with other procedures. But as with any procedure, make sure you choose a professional who has the skills and qualifications to do it right. You’ll want to discuss your expectations in advance, and ask any questions you have about the procedure and your recovery. In addition, your aesthetician should give you an honest opinion about what will work best for you, and recommend other procedures if necessary.
