With so many new advancements in medical technology, it’s no wonder why more and more men and women choose to undergo cosmetic surgery. There are also a number of non-invasive procedures that can help turn back the clock. Consider this brief overview of how laser resurfacing can redefine and rejuvenate your skin.
The Basics of Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment option in which short, concentrated pulses of light are directed at the skin to vaporize superficial, damaged skin cells without overheating the skin. One of the most common lasers used during skin resurfacing is a CO2 laser which causes low-level damage to the skin while promoting collagen growth. By utilizing this type of laser, resurfacing treatments can not only help to reduce the signs of aging, but also help the skin to repair itself.
Individuals who are interested in reducing the look of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone and texture are all good candidates for laser resurfacing treatments. In some cases, laser resurfacing can also help correct deeper wrinkles and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Unlike other laser resurfacing methods that treat wrinkles gradually over several visits, the CO2 UltraPulse Encore laser produces dramatic and immediate results with only one treatment. Using the unique CO2 LiteTM setting to treat fine lines and mild pigment disorders, this laser resurfacing method can be completed with just one pass and allows for faster recovery time. In addition, laser resurfacing with the UltraPulse Encore laser can do more than just soften the appearance of skin imperfections—it can also eliminate the evidence of aging and sun damage for long-lasting results. Dr. Joseph Perlman utilizes both the superficial (Active FX) and deep (Deep FX) treatment heads to provide total improvement of skin problems at any depth. These include deep acne scars, deep wrinkles hypertrophic scars, some stretch marks as well as the more superficial problems such as pigmentation changes.
