What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Improve?
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, can improve many facial flaws, and with revolutionary laser technology, you’ll get the results of plastic surgery without the hospital visit or complications from surgical procedures. Laser skin resurfacing technologies now give physicians a higher level of control during the procedure, so that just your flaws are treated by laser resurfacing, and your surrounding skin stays safer from effects. One of the newest laser skin resurfacing methods is the Fraxel laser, which treats fractions of the skin at a time, and can be used to treat different layers of skin, on different parts of the body in addition to the face.
Here are some of the top skin flaws that laser skin resurfacing can improve on the face, neck, chest and hands:
- Facial wrinkles, such as fine lines around your eyes (Crow’s feet) and under your eyes, forehead, brows and mouth
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Aged or sun-damaged skin
- Liver spots
- Enlarged oil glands on the nose
- Liver spots
- An uneven complexion, such as yellowish or grayish skin tones
- Actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition
Your doctor can customize laser skin resurfacing treatments to treat the facial and body flaws that cause you unhappiness, and those that could lead to greater problems down the road, like the last item on the list above. And since some flaws like warts can inhibit your social life and personal life, laser skin resurfacing can get you back to carefree enjoyment of your life, without worry that someone is going to see or touch the flaw that keeps you covered-up, or in some cases avoiding social or romantic interaction. Younger-looking, mark-free skin is a real possibility, especially if you’re noticing that your hands look like they belong to someone much older than you are, or if you’re tired of living with the acne scars from your teenage days.
