What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing, also know as a laser peel, laser vaporization and lasabrasion, can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes. Newer laser technologies give your plastic surgeon a new level of control in laser surfacing, permitting extreme precision, especially in delicate areas.

Laser skin resurfacing can improve minor facial flaws, such as:
    Fine lines or wrinkles around or under your eyes, forehead or mouth
    Scars from acne or chickenpox
    Non-responsive skin after a facelift
    Aged or sun-damaged skin
    Liver spots
    Improve your complexion if you have yellowish or grayish skin tones
    Birthmarks such as linear epidermal nevi
    Enlarged oil glands on the nose

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

It's all about using beams of light. Your surgeon uses the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time.

Laser skin resurfacing's targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hypopigmentation, or a lightening of skin for procedures such as laser acne scar removal.

The laser beam used in laser resurfacing will remove your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
