Laser Skin Resurfacing

Years of exposure to harsh elements, especially sunlight, and the natural aging process can make skin look dull, blotchy, and lifeless. Acne scars, heredity, blemishes, and other factors can also make skin look sallow and aged. One of the most effective surgical procedures to help your skin look younger is laser skin resurfacing. Harnessing the safe but highly effective power of the laser, resurfacing can remove the damaged outer layers of skin. Wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other imperfections can be reduced with a low chance of bleeding or other complications.

After CO2 laser skin resurfacing, the skin will be pink for quite a while. However, makeup may be worn after about one week to camouflage this. Precautions must be taken to minimize sun exposure during this healing time. A potential side effect is that the skin that is lasered may experience some change in pigmentation, frequently becoming a little lighter.
