The skin changes in various ways as we age. The pigmentation can change, and dark spots or hyperpigmentation can alter the even tone of the skin. Skin becomes thinner and less firm, resulting in lines, wrinkles and sagging. To maintain more youthful skin, there are a variety of treatments that can address these aging issues. One of the options to rejuvenate the face and reduce facial wrinkles is laser skin resurfacing, available at Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates in Lake Mary, FL.
Laser skin treatments procedure is designed to help anyone who has sun damaged, aging skin, irregularly pigmented skin, wrinkles, sagging, irregular texture of the skin or other skin condition. There are various skin laser treatments, from hair removal to intense pulsed light (IPL) or photo facial therapy. The difference involves the spectrum of light energy used and what skin cells are targeted. In laser skin resurfacing, the treatment sends light energy to target damaged skin cells to remove them from the surface. At the same time, the lower layers of skin cells are affected by the heat, stimulating the production of collagen. The old, damaged skin cells are removed, and the collagen helps heal and repair the skin for a firmer, smoother appearance.
