Laser skin resurfacing, which may also be referred to as a laser peel, can drastically reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines that naturally occur from aging. The treatment can be used on the areas under the eyes, mouth, or forehead.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The procedure uses CO2 or Cortex™ YAG Erbium lasers to send concentrated beams of light to the targeted areas on the skin. As a result, wrinkled and damaged skin will be removed in layers with accurate precision. The precise, targeted technique results in less problems with uneven skin pigmentation.

The outer layer of the skin, which is the epidermis, will be removed during the procedure. The underlying layer is the dermis and will be heated to activate the growth of collagen fibers. When the targeted area has healed, the skin will be noticeably smoother and firmer.

There are two variations of lasers that are used during laser skin resurfacing. CO2 lasers will result in minimal damage to the skin and use short pulsated light energy. The other type of laser that is used is a YAG Erbium laser. This is best for those who have fine lines and deep wrinkles. In most cases, laser skin resurfacing is used on the face. However, it can also be used to treat signs of aging on other areas.

Who are Ideal Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Good candidates for the procedure will have realistic goals and should be in good health. It is a beneficial treatment for those who have fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.
