As you grow older, it is natural that your skin will start to look and feel different. But what if there was a non-surgical solution to this and you could reverse the signs of aging? Regardless if it was the sun that left your face with scars, blotches, lines or wrinkles. You can still look and feel better with a laser skin resurfacing treatment.
Most of us suffered from acne in our teenage years and acne scars are common. The appearance of acne scars can be troubling for many people and affect their confidence. Acne scars result from a complex and abnormal inflammatory response, which results in poor wound healing. Laser resurfacing stimulates the production of collagen. Generating new collagen fibers will reduce the appearance of brown spots, redness, dark spots, fine lines, surgical scars & more. We can treat the entire face or just a specific area. Laser therapy is an effective treatment for any skin type, find out if you're a good candidate today by contacting TRUE at Wolfson Medical Center. Many people consider a cosmetic procedure but the reality is skin resurfacing can resolve many issues without plastic surgery or a skin graft, so you can avoid going under local anesthesia. Another alternative would be filler injections but they only last 6-18 months. With laser scar removal, there's no need to contact a plastic surgeon. If you're interested in a scar laser treatment or acne scar laser treatment, schedule a free consultation with us. During your free consultation we will create a treatment plan that is right for you.
We all want healthy skin, or at least, normal skin. Our body produces collagen naturally but as we age the production slows down and certain skin conditions can develop. Laser Skin Resurfacing initiates the body's natural healing process and has minimal side effects & recovery time. It provides excellent results without damaging the surrounding skin & surrounding tissue. We always recommend a series of treatments or a combination of treatments. Laser Skin resurfacing improves skin texture to reduce the appearance of a scar, including severe scars that may have formed from a surgical excision. Other treatments like a co2 (carbon dioxide) fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment is a aggressive treatment to treat multiple skin conditions. You achieve similar results but your skin will become dry and peel (similar to a chemical peel) after the treatment and you will have to endure the downtime. Possible side effects include bacterial infection, we do not use a co2 laser, our laser skin resurfacing treatment avoids this.
Laser skin resurfacing is used to ultimately rejuvenate your skin and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. After the procedure, new skin cells start to form which results in younger and tighter looking skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the best treatments for people looking to achieve younger looking skin without undergoing surgery. However, laser skin resurfacing has many uses, such as:
1. Stretch Mark Removal
When you have stretch marks, laser skin resurfacing can help. No matter if you lost a lot of weight quickly or if you just gave birth, laser skin resurfacing breaks down stretch marks by producing new tissue production right underneath the skin. New collagen will form and improve not only the color but also the texture of the stretch marks.
2. Scar And Acne Scar Removal
If you have a scar that really bothers you, now you can get rid of it permanently.
With laser skin resurfacing, laser light breaks down scar tissue and helps generate new skin bu it's important to remember that some scars may need more treatments than others.
