Wouldn’t it be great if we could go through our entire life and never get wrinkles? Unfortunately, this is not how life works. We develop wrinkles on our face because of exposure to the sun, air pollution, and a loss of skin elasticity and facial volume. As we get older, the external layers of our skin become thicker, while the internal layers, which are key to our skin’s health, become thinner. Age leads to a slowdown in the creation of collagen and elastin. As a result, we start to see the development of thicker skin. Our pores get larger, and fine lines begin to cross our face. Fortunately, we can do something about it with laser skin resurfacing.
Many people have turned to laser skin resurfacing as a way to reverse some of the negatives that are happening to their skin. This versatile treatment is designed to encourage your skin cells to turn over quicker. The goal is to encourage your skin to make more collagen.
As your skin creates more collagen, fine lines and wrinkles begin to disappear. Problems with skin texture and pores also vanish. As a result, you’re left with smooth skin that looks young and vibrant.
Laser skin resurfacing works because of the way that heat interacts with your body. When heat is directed at your skin, it encourages your body’s natural healing process to begin. This is the process that leads to the creation of more collagen and elastin. Depending on the part of your face that’s being treated, this increase in collagen production will even out your skin color, make your pores smaller, and even make wrinkles disappear. This might all sound like magic, but there is a lot of science behind why this works. During your initial consultation with us, we look forward to explaining to you how and why laser resurfacing produces amazing results.
It is understandable if you have questions about the number of treatments that you will need. We will not be able to give you a set number until your treatments begin. This is because the biology of one person is drastically different than another. For example, a treatment that produces results after three sessions for one individual may require four or five sessions for another. As a general rule, we recommend that patients seek more than one treatment to get best results.
The results that are derived from laser skin resurfacing are not immediate. It takes years for skin damage to accumulate. In the same way, it may take a few months before your skin begins to restore itself.
