Achieve a more youthful appearance with laser skin resurfacing
- Posted on: Nov 15 2020
As we age, our skin becomes more relaxed and the face can develop fine lines and wrinkles. This also occurs due to the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. While plastic surgery solutions such as a brow lift or face lift can correct many of these issues, some patients don’t want an invasive procedure and want to avoid undergoing surgical treatments. Additionally, patients may have other issues they’d like to address on their facial skin, including pigmentation or poor skin tone and complexion. In situations such as this, our team in Northbrook, Illinois may encourage adult men and women to consider laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Understanding laser skin resurfacing
Our provider describes laser skin resurfacing as a treatment used to enhance the skin’s texture and tone with laser light energy. Laser light penetrates deep into the skin and can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and acne scarring
- Poor complexion
- Hyperpigmentation and blemishes
- Large pores
- Dull skin
Using a specialized, FDA-cleared device, our provider runs a laser-emitting handpiece along the facial area which allows the laser light to penetrate deep within the skin. In doing so, it stimulates collagen and elastin production for tighter, firmer skin and improved tone and complexion.
How often do I need laser skin resurfacing treatments?
Patients often have more treatments done at the beginning of their treatment plan, and then come in routinely for maintenance procedures. Depending on the condition patients want to treat and their severity, the doctor will make an appropriate recommendation for an individual after the consultation visit. Our team of professionals are highly trained in administering laser therapies and can ensure dramatic, amazing results without plastic surgery.
Who is a good candidate?
During a consultation visit with our provider, patients will be assessed to determine if they can benefit from this treatment. In most cases, patients with aging skin and pigmentation issues who are in good overall health can benefit from laser skin resurfacing services.
