As we begin ageing, the elasticity of our skin minimises. In addition, the repetitive movements of facial muscles stretch the skin, sometimes resulting in sagging. When this condition remains for a particular period of time, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form on the face. Personal habits like drinking and smoking along with external factors like exposure to the sun can worsen the problem.
To cure skin imperfections and reduce ageing effects, many people apply different cosmetic creams and lotions on their face. However, these aren’t always too effective, and they can be expensive. This is when opting for laser skin resurfacing is a good option.
Laser skin resurfacing eliminates crow feet, wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and eyes. As well as this, laser resurfacing can also be helpful in eliminating birth marks, skin pigmentation and acne scars. Laser treatments are also available for tattoo removal and stretch mark removal.
Laser treatment also promotes the rate of skin renewal, restoration and rejuvenation. Sometimes, laser treatments are used in combination with other treatments like liposuction.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
The laser skin resurfacing treatment is performed by first administering a local anaesthetic to the patient. Beam of laser lights are then used on the upper layer of the skin. The laser resurfacing procedure can be used on a specific region or on the entire facial area that needs to be corrected.
Laser skin resurfacing treatment stimulates the lower layer of the skin to promote the production of collagen and increase the elasticity of the skin. Once the procedure is complete, your skin will look younger and have a more supple tone.
