Laser skin resurfacing, one type of laser treatment, is a minimally invasive method of removing the superficial layers of damaged or wrinkled skin. The technique, called ablative fractional laser resurfacing, combines the benefits of older laser resurfacing technology with the added advantages of quicker recovery times and more predictable outcomes.
Laser treatment works by pixelating or fractionating the laser light so only a small percentage of skin is treated with each laser pulse. This allows the intervening or unaffected skin cells to regenerate more rapidly resulting in faster healing time. The laser's microscopic treatment causes the body to produce more collagen, resulting in skin tightening and improving the skin's overall texture and complexion.
In addition, state-of-the-art laser techniques and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices are also used to successfully remove unwanted facial and body hair.
Laser treatment is a safe, results-oriented treatment for damaged skin related to excessive sun exposure, aging, scarring and for the removal of unwanted hair.
