What are the Benefits of Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing treatments are highly customizable. Depending on the type of skin you have, laser resurfacing can be shallow or deep, ablative (removes the outer layer of skin) or non-ablative (light penetrates the skin without causing injury to stimulate the dermis), and a variety of wavelengths to concentrate improvement for specific skin conditions. Fine lines and wrinkles, redness, sun damage, acne scars, melasma, or many other conditions are all treatable with laser resurfacing.
Downtime is minimal. With the MicroLaserPeel®, downtime is a matter of days rather than weeks. Even for lasers that require a week or two of healing time, the dramatic improvement to your skin is well worth it. Consider all the time spent applying creams and serums and how much improvement they achieve. Laser resurfacing helps you reach new heights of skin health much faster than you can achieve on your own.
Results are dramatic and long term. Your skin doesn’t just look healthier. It really is healthier. Your skin cells are newer and your collagen production is stimulated for better quality collagen fibers that stand up to the environment and gravity. This helps your skin stay firm longer and appear younger. By removing damaged skin cells, your complexion is more vibrant and you can see the benefits of laser resurfacing, in some cases, for years to come. Your skin will continue to improve after your treatment for up to 6 months.

Laser resurfacing may be everything your skin needs for that youthful, healthy glow.
