Laser Skin Resurfacing
Your facial skin changes over time and becomes less vibrant, firm and youthful. Sun damage, acne scars, discolorations, lines, wrinkles and other flaws can appear on your face. The skin can repair itself, but first the damaged cells need to be removed. One of the most effective non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate your face is laser skin resurfacing, which we offer at Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center.
Laser skin treatments come in a variety of options, from non-ablative fractional and intense pulsed light treatments to ablative CO2 lasers. While the non-ablative options are less invasive and often do not require downtime, they usually require multiple treatments. Laser skin resurfacing uses ablative lasers to remove the top layer of the skin with light energy. Patients will need to allow several days for the skin to heal, but only one treatment is usually needed to obtain the desired results.
Laser Wrinkle Treatment
Laser skin resurfacing can help restore more youthful-appearing skin. The light energy treatment removes old, damaged cells and replaces the skin surface with new cells. To repair the skin, collagen levels are increased, helping increase the volume and firmness. Some of the benefits our patients notice from their skin resurfacing treatment include:
- Fewer lines and wrinkles
- Diminished brown or age spots
- More even skin tone
- Reduced acne scars
- Smaller pores
Most patients need 3-10 days of recovery to allow their skin to heal. The recovery time depends on how large a surface is treated – a full face resurfacing will require the longest downtime. In the following weeks, you will begin to notice an improvement in your skin’s tone, texture, firmness and overall brightness. It can help many patients look years younger while slowing the aging process. The results can last for years, but it does not stop the skin from aging.
If you have lines, wrinkles, scarring or pigmentation issues on your skin, laser resurfacing may be the solution.
