The Benefits Of Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing treatment is an innovative skincare procedure that helps to rejuvenate damaged, ageing skin by removing the outer layers of the dermis, encouraging your body to create new skin cells for a fresher and brighter appearance. This technology has been improving and changing since it first become popular in the 1990s but in recent years, it has become much more effective. Modern innovations have meant that these days, a wider range of people can enjoy the amazing results it offers! Our skilled and dedicated team at North West Aesthetics can guide you through your options when it comes to laser resurfacing treatments.
What Is Laser Resurfacing Treatment?
Laser resurfacing involves heat energy penetrating the top layer of the dermis, typically with a handheld device. This thermal energy encourages your cells to create fresh elastin and collagen fibres, which tightens the skin across the treatment areas, resulting in plumper, younger-looking skin. As well as this, it speeds up cell turnover. It can be performed on all areas of the body but it is most commonly used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring (both acne and surgical), stretch marks and spider veins. It is a quick, simple, non-surgical procedure that gives great results and will be sure to improve how you feel about your skin.
As for other areas of the body, laser resurfacing treatment has been particularly successful in the reduction of stretch marks. Whether you have them as a result of growth spurts during childhood or following weight gain or childbirth, this procedure can help to reduce their prominence. Some stretch marks can be a pale, silvery hue but many are often left with red or even purple stretch marks, which can be particularly disheartening to deal with. Through the use of this treatment, your skin will be able to regenerate at a much quicker pace, fading the appearance of stretch marks much quicker than any topical cream or oil.
Am I Suitable For Laser Resurfacing Treatment?
Almost everyone can have laser resurfacing treatment but there are some long-term conditions that will render you unsuitable for this procedure, including psoriasis or scleroderma. This is why we think it’s so important to book a consultation prior to your treatment. During an initial consultation, our team will advise you of the best course of action for your concerns.
We’re sure you will be pleased to learn that there is very little downtime associated with this procedure and you should be able to resume your normal activities straight away. Your skin might be red and slightly sore but this will fade in a few days and isn’t anything to worry about. As your skin heals, it is important that you keep the treatment area(s) clean and out of the sun to ensure the best possible results.
