You have done everything you can think of to improve your body and mind. You have adopted a lifestyle change of diet and exercise and you are looking great and feeling your best ever, but there is just one thing that is keeping you from saying you are ready to go into maintenance mode: your skin. The lines and wrinkles, acne scars and sun-damaged skin are detracting from all the results you have achieved through your hard work of diet, exercise, and mind over matter. If you are wondering how to look younger with laser skin resurfacing at Thin M.D. Med Spa, read on.
What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
One method for looking younger is with a safe and effective treatment called laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion. Laser skin resurfacing utilizes beams of light by way of a laser to send short, intense, pulsating beams of light upon irregular and damaged skin. The precise targeting of predetermined skin areas removes exactly the damaged and irregular skin one layer at a time.
What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Laser skin resurfacing treats the unwanted appearance of damaged skin that occurs for the following reasons:
- Acne or chickenpox scars
- Liver spots
- Lines and wrinkles on the face
- Aged or sun-damaged skin
- Enlarged sebaceous glands on the nose
- Blotchy patches
- Yellowish-gray skin tones
- Facelift problems
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Laser skin resurfacing involves precise targeting so that there are fewer problems with post-treatment hyperpigmentation. The laser beam removes the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis while heating the underlying layer called the dermis. This heating action stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers so that when the treated area heals, the new skin is both smoother and firmer, and blends with the surrounding tissue. Looking younger is simply a matter of light, heat, and your body’s ability to restore, regenerate, and renovate.
What Happens During Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
The average treatment is completed in about 30 minutes. During the treatment, a tingling sensation may be felt and cooling anesthetic lotion may be applied to reduce any discomfort. Once completed, there is essentially no downtime and many patients notice a difference after just one appointment. Some patients will require multiple appointments to optimize results. The number of treatments will be determined by you and the team providing your care.
How to Look Younger
It is certainly understandable how frustrating it must be after adopting a lifestyle change and working hard at diet and exercise, you still feel a lack of confidence about the appearance of your skin. Blotchy skin, lines, wrinkles, sun-damaged, and acne scars are some of the reasons preventing people from going into maintenance mode after making improvements to their mind and body.
