Laser Skin Resurfacing
Sun damaged, weathered, and aging skin can be made to look fresher, smoother, and more even-toned through the use of various lasers (carbon dioxide and erbium) and other light-based or radio frequency treatments. These methods result in a healing process that increase the collagen in the skin, help level out the irregularities, tighten skin, and give it a more vibrant, youthful appearance. Recovery depends on the type of laser or technology, degree of rejuvenation attempted, and the individual’s skin type. Frequently there is a period of time where camouflage cosmetics are used to give the healing pink-appearing skin a chance to fade and recover.
