Those who are seeking a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, blemishes, and other skin irregularities often turn to laser skin resurfacing. Technology has kept advancing to the point that a trained member of our team can meticulously control the laser to help you achieve the results you want. Look no further than Huntington Women’s Health for your laser skin resurfacing treatment.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
The provider uses a concentrated and pulsing beam of light to target the irregularities on your face. By doing this, unwanted layers of skin are removed one at a time. This is a very precise procedure. The process removes the epidermis, which is the outer layer of your skin. At the same time, it stimulates the dermis (the underlying skin) and stimulates it to grow new collagen fibers. The result is firmer, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Who Can Benefit from Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Anyone in good health that wants to improve their skin should look into this treatment. Here is a more detailed list of what can be corrected with laser skin resurfacing:
- Sun damaged skin
- Liver spots
- Fine lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead
- Enlarged oil glands, particularly on the nose
- Scars from acne or chickenpox
Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Process
This procedure is performed in our office in Huntington, NY. Depending on your specific needs, a treatment session lasts anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes. Before starting, your face will be thoroughly cleaned and you will be given eye protection. Some providers choose to numb the skin, but that is not usually required. We want to make sure you are as relaxed and comfortable as possible, and most patients go through the treatment with only slight discomfort.
Many patients notice improvement right after treatment. The appearance of the skin will continue to improve over time. Since the treatment cannot prevent new wrinkles and other damage from happening, the process may need to be done again down the line. Laser skin resurfacing can be repeated as necessary.
