Does laser skin rejuvenation work?
- Posted on: Jul 15 2021
In the past, lasers were always associated with science fiction movies and movies about the future. Well, the future is now! Lasers play an important role in many areas of medicine, including plastic surgery and dermatology. Dr. Daniel Tresley of Northbrook, IL provides laser skin rejuvenation services for patients who want to revitalize their appearance and improve the health of their skin!
What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation, sometimes referred to as laser skin surfacing, is a treatment using laser lights to penetrate deep within the skin’s layers to stimulate collagen production and skin cell turnover. This light-based therapy can be as subtle or as strong as patients need to treat the skin concerns that bother them. Patients will find that laser skin rejuvenation can help with:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and acne scarring
- Pigmentation concerns
- Age spots/sun spots/freckles
Who is a good candidate?
Most patients who are seeking skin rejuvenation may find laser treatments to be incredibly beneficial in helping reach their goals. Dr. Daniel Tresley encourages patients to book a consultation visit during which the skin can be evaluated and patients can find out if they are a good fit for treatment. Our provider will speak to patients about what to expect with laser services, including any information patients will need to know about taking time off of work or school for safe and effective recovery. More aggressive laser treatments may result in more downtime than mild services, and the type chosen is based on the patient’s desired results.
Is laser skin rejuvenation painful?
The laser light that penetrates is warm and can cause a snapping sound and sensation on the skin. However, we apply a topical anesthetic on the skin prior to starting treatment to ensure the procedure is much more comfortable for the patient. Treatments are well-tolerated by adult men and women.
