What Are Skin Resurfacing Laser Treatments?
Skin resurfacing laser treatments are cosmetic procedures that use laser technology to improve the texture, tone and overall appearance of the skin. They address a variety of skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, sun damage and uneven skin texture. These treatments work by using laser technology to precisely target and remove the top layers of damaged or aged skin. This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that contribute to youthful and healthy-looking skin.
There are a variety of laser treatments available, but at PURE, we offer two laser treatments we feel are most effective and safe for all skin types, ProFractional laser treatment and MicroLaser Peel. Both offer the benefits of skin resurfacing with stunning results.
How Profractional Lasers Work
ProFractional lasers are fractional ablative lasers, which means they work by creating microscopic columns of ablation (removal) in the skin, leaving surrounding tissue intact.
The profractional laser emits laser energy in a fractional pattern, targeting only a fraction of the skin’s surface. This fractional approach sets it apart from traditional ablative lasers that treat the entire skin surface. The laser’s energy creates tiny, controlled wounds in the skin to remove damaged or aged skin cells. Simultaneously, the laser heats the surrounding tissue, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
The body’s natural healing processes are triggered. It begins to replace the damaged skin with new, healthier tissue. Collagen and elastin production increases, leading to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and enhanced firmness.
Benefits of Profractional Lasers
- Profractional lasers offer precise targeting of specific areas, making them effective for addressing various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and uneven texture.
- The depth and density of the laser treatment can be adjusted to suit individual needs and skin conditions.
- Compared to traditional ablative lasers, profractional lasers typically involve a shorter recovery time. Patients may experience redness and minor swelling, but downtime is often shorter, usually ranging from a few days to a week.
- Profractional laser results tend to appear gradually as collagen remodeling continues over several months. This can create a more natural and less noticeable transition in appearance.
- Profractional lasers can be used on a wide range of skin types and tones, making them inclusive for diverse patient populations.
A MicroLaser Peel is a type of skin resurfacing treatment that uses laser technology to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. It is a mild to moderate ablative laser procedure designed to address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and minor skin imperfections. The goal of a MicroLaser Peel is to rejuvenate the skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion.
MicroLaser Peels use a specialized laser device to emit concentrated beams of laser energy. Unlike some other laser resurfacing treatments, the MicroLaser Peel focuses on a specific and controlled depth of penetration. The laser energy is precisely tuned to remove the outermost layer of the skin that consists of dead skin cells and damaged tissue. This controlled ablation effectively exfoliates the skin, promoting the removal of old, damaged skin and stimulating the growth of new, healthier skin.
The key advantage of a MicroLaser Peel is that it offers noticeable skin improvement with minimal downtime. Recovery typically takes a few days, during which the skin may appear slightly red and feel tight, similar to a sunburn. Over the next several days, the old, damaged skin will peel away, revealing smoother and more radiant skin underneath.
Tips for Pre- And Post-Care Treatment For Laser Resurfacing
During your consultation with PURE, we will discuss everything you need to know about laser resurfacing including pre- and post-care tips. Prior to your treatment, we will ask you to avoid sun exposure for several weeks leading up to the treatment and discontinue the use of products that may sensitize the skin like retinoids.
We will discuss common side effects like redness, swelling, itching and peeling, as well as other tips for your post-treatment recovery.
Most clients need multiple sessions to see the best results, so we will also give you an idea of how many treatments you may need to say goodbye to dull skin and hello to a fresh, rejuvenated look.
Is Laser Resurfacing Good For Skin?
Laser resurfacing can be highly beneficial for individuals who want to ease cosmetic concerns like dull skin for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
What Is The Most Effective Skin Resurfacing Laser?
There isn’t a single “most effective” laser for everyone, but ProFractional Lasers and MicroPeel Lasers are well-suited for all skin types and can be customized for an individual’s specific concerns, resulting in transformative results.
What Will My Face Look Like After Laser Resurfacing?
Immediately after laser resurfacing, the treated area may appear red and swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. Some pinpoint bleeding or oozing may occur, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
Over the next few days to weeks, the skin will begin to heal and regenerate. You may notice peeling or flaking as the damaged skin is replaced with new, healthier tissue. Gradually, as collagen production increases, the skin will become smoother, firmer and more youthful in appearance.
