Reasons Why You Should Consider Laser Facial Resurfacing

Aging can take its toll on a body — particularly the skin. Luckily, there are many cosmetic surgery procedures that can help reduce the signs of aging. One of the best options for anyone who wants to improve the look of their skin is laser facial resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing is a simple procedure that can help correct wrinkles and scars. If you are considering trying to improve the look of the skin on your face, here are some important things you should know about laser facial resurfacing, as well as reasons why you should consider getting the procedure done.

What is Laser Facial Resurfacing?

During a laser facial resurfacing process, a cosmetic surgeon or healthcare provider will use a laser to remove or repair unwanted marks on the skin. There are several different types of resurfacing lasers, including ablative lasers, which actually remove a layer of skin, and non-ablative lasers, which stimulate skin cells but do not actually remove a layer.

Reasons to Consider Getting Laser Facial Resurfacing

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of the skin on your face, you may want to consider getting laser facial resurfacing. Here are some reasons why you might be a good candidate for the procedure.

You Have Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a normal, natural part of aging. However, you can reduce the number of wrinkles you have (and their severity) when you get laser facial resurfacing. Laser facial resurfacing can remove wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and more.

You Have Scars on Your Face

You may have scars on your face from a previous injury — or from acne you had when you were a teenager. If you’re acne free now but have scars that you’re not happy about, you can get laser facial resurfacing to remove the scars or reduce their appearance.

Your Skin No Longer Feels Elastic

Skin loses elasticity as you age. When skin loses elasticity, it makes you look older. Erbium lasers used for Laser Facial Resurfacing can help promote collagen remodeling, which means that your skin will appear healthier, more youthful and more elastic.

You Have Rosacea or Other Pigment Issues

Rosacea is a condition that causes the pigment of your face and cheeks to turn pink or red. Facial laser resurfacing is a good option for treating rosacea. Cosmetic surgeons can use pulse-dyed lasers, which heat up the skin and absorb pigments. This will help people who have suffered from rosacea or broken capillaries reduce the redness in their skin and turn it back to its natural color. Laser facial resurfacing can also be used to correct hyperpigmentation

You Have Age Spots

Age spots appear on facial skin as people age and spend time in the sun. Several different types of facial laser resurfacing can help reduce the appearance of age spots on your skin — making you look both younger and healthier.
