Whether individuals struggle to conceal acne scars from adolescence or want to diminish the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, ablative resurfacing laser treatments with Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics can help even skin tone and texture to minimize the appearance of these types of skin imperfections. The ablative resurfacing laser is the most effective type of treatment to improve deep lines and wrinkles with less treatments required.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
Our Ablative Resurfacing Laser treatment uses an intense wavelength of light to remove, or ablate, the outer layer of aged or sun-damaged skin to stimulate the regeneration and rejuvenation of skin cells without destroying tissue. As a result of heating the underlying layer of skin, collagen formation is increased which improves the appearance of the outer layer as it heals. Once healed, the skin will appear tighter and smoother.
What Types of Skin Irregularities Can Be Improved with Laser Treatments?
Laser resurfacing treatments are a safe way for patients to balance both skin tone and texture by minimizing the appearance of irregularities such as:
- age spots
- superficial skin lesions
- fine lines and deep wrinkles
- sun damage
- texture or tone abnormalities
- scars from acne or injury
Ablative resurfacing treatments can be safely and effectively used on a patient’s face, neck, chest, hands, arms, specific scars and certain types of benign skin lesions. Usually only one treatment is necessary, lasting from 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the area to be treated, with an average of 5-7 days of downtime. Depending on your lifestyle and your age, the effects can last for years.
