Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation also known as laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes lasers to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and scars, address uneven skin pigmentation, tighten the skin, and eliminate both benign and malignant lesions.

In this technique, short, concentrated pulses of light from lasers are directed at irregular skin. The process precisely removes skin layer by layer, vaporizing it.

The outer layer, or epidermis, is taken off, while the underlying layer, the dermis, is heated. This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers, resulting in smoother and firmer skin. Commonly known as lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization, this procedure is popular for its skin-rejuvenating effects.

Ideal candidates for laser skin resurfacing typically have:

  • Scars from acne or chickenpox.
  • Uneven skin pigmentation.
  • Skin scars or birthmarks.
  • Age spots or liver spots.
  • Sun-damaged skin.
  • Non-responsive skin after a facelift.
  • Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead, or mouth.
  • Enlarged oil glands on the nose.

However, individuals may not be suitable candidates if they have:

  • Active acne.
  • Very dark skin.
  • Deep wrinkles.
  • Excessive or sagging skin.

It’s crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if laser skin resurfacing is appropriate for your specific skin condition and medical history.
