Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel, lasabrasion, and laser vaporization, is a facial rejuvenation procedure to reduce wrinkles and blemishes, tighten skin, and remove lesions (both benign and malignant). The procedure involves directing short and concentrated pulsating beams of light at the irregular skin surface. It removes the skin by vaporizing it layer-by-layer precisely. The laser beam removes the outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis. Then it heats the next layer, called the dermis, and stimulates collagen production resulting in a newer smooth layer of skin. The procedure may not suit you if you have excessive acne, a dark skin tone, deep wrinkles, or too much skin sagging.
