Laser skin resurfacing refers to a procedure used to rejuvenate the face with the use of a laser. This type of procedure is done when people are looking to improve the appearance of their skin or treat and minimize minor flaws in the facial skin. There are two different types of lasers that can be used for laser skin resurfacing – ablative and nonablative lasers. An ablative laser is classified as a wounding laser, in that it is used to remove the outer layer of skin known as the epidermis and heat the dermis, or underlying skin, in order to stimulate collagen production.
When the epidermis grows, the skin will appear to be tighter and smoother. A nonablative laser is non-wounding, however, still stimulates collagen growth. There are a variety of lasers available that are non-invasive and will still improve the tone and texture of the skin. With the laser being non-wounding, recovery time is significantly less, however, results won’t be as effective or long-lasting.
There are a wide variety of skin tightening procedures available in the anti-aging and skin improvement market that use a non-surgical method. That being said, the best treatment available will vary from one person to the next, depending on their age, health, area being treated, any previous treatments they have had for the same issue, any treatments that have been done to the same area for other issues and any existing health conditions and medications.
People interested in non-surgical skin tightening procedures, or any other anti-aging treatment, will need to do their research on methods available, risks and benefits, side effects, and of course, licensed and certified specialists who can safely and effectively perform the procedure. Many of the non-surgical treatments use some form of energy-based technology or laser light that is non-invasive, or minimally invasive in some cases, and doesn’t carry the higher risks and extended recovery time of a surgical procedure.
Laser resurfacing uses one of two types of lasers in order to improve the appearance and tightness of the skin that is being treated. The heat from the laser works down into the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen. Collagen production naturally slows down as we get older, which causes our skin to lose its youthfulness, elasticity, and ability to heal quickly. With laser resurfacing, the skin is naturally healed from the inside out, using the newly produced collagen which is a compound used to heal the body.
As a result, the skin can appear smoother, with a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, restore lost skin tone and improve the appearance of scars or sun damage, on top of tightening the skin. Laser resurfacing is not able to eliminate sagging or excess skin. Ensure you are working with a trained and certified practitioner for any type of laser resurfacing procedure. They will be able to explain the risks and benefits, as well as provide you with real results for what you can expect following your treatment.
There are many benefits to having laser resurfacing treatment as opposed to some other, more invasive, forms of anti-aging or skin tightening procedure. Laser resurfacing is performed on an outpatient basis, typically in a doctor’s office. The procedure is generally pretty quick, depending on the size of the treatment area. The skin will be numbed prior to the procedure, for comfort. Results following laser skin resurfacing treatment will be natural, due to the natural production of collagen that is stimulated to heal the skin.
The body is using itself to improve the appearance of the treated area, without the use of medications, injections, or surgery. Results will vary based on the type of laser being used, however, for both ablative and nonablative, the results have been shown to last for several years.
