What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is an exciting medical
procedure which corrects the effects of the sun, wind and time.
Physicians around the world use the pinpoint accuracy of
advanced C02 (carbon dioxide) lasers to repair damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing
reduces wrinkles without scalpels or stitches. The laser emits an intense beam of energy
that heats and vaporizes tissue instantaneously. It is so precise that the normal
surrounding tissue is not effected.
As your doctor guides the lasers beam over the
damaged or wrinkled skin, it gently removes the outer layers. Fine lines and wrinkles
around the mouth and eyes are smoothed. Deep creases and frown lines will be softened and
acne scars are minimized. Once the outer layer of skin has been removed, the new skin
beneath is softer, smoother with a more youthful appearance
