Skin irregularities like blemishes, facial wrinkles, and acne scars happen to us all. Exposure to the sun, lifestyle choices (such as smoking) and general aging all contribute to skin issues over time. But the good news is that there’s a treatment available to help fight these irregularities and restore your skin to its youthful best. With laser skin resurfacing at Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Boston, you can boost your self-esteem and your appearance in next to no time.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
This technique involves the direction of short, concentrated beams of light onto irregular patches of skin. This helps to remove the skin, layer by layer. Laser skin resurfacing is incredibly popular. It’s simple, non-invasive and can be performed in-office, allowing you to continue your standard daily tasks after the treatment.
Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Anybody who has fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth or the eyes is an ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing. It can also be incredibly useful for treating the following conditions:
• Non-responsive skin to other treatments
• Shallow scars as a result of acne
• Forehead wrinkles
Good candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results.
Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing
There are two forms of laser commonly used in laser resurfacing – carbon dioxide and erbium. CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser skin resurfacing involves very short light energy (also known as ultrapulse) in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin. This method is beneficial in the treatment of scars, enlarged oil glands and wrinkles, among other conditions.
