5 Problems That Laser Resurfacing Resolves

As your largest, fastest growing, and most exposed organ, your skin is in an ongoing state of repair and renewal that keeps it strong, resilient, and functional. It works hard to shield you from the elements, help you maintain a stable body temperature, and protect you from germs. 

Your skin also helps you put your best face forward — until it doesn’t. 

If your complexion has been diminished by age-related collagen loss, damaged by long-term sun exposure, or scarred by a chronic skin condition like acne, Brittney Gast, RN, BSN, and our skilled team at Natural Obsession Aesthetics have the perfect comprehensive solution.

Read on to discover how advanced laser resurfacing techniques can help correct unwanted skin abnormalities, revitalize your complexion, take years off your appearance, and help you achieve total skin renewal from the inside out. 

Laser skin resurfacing explained

Laser skin resurfacing is an easy and effective way to reverse the cumulative effects of sun damage, diminish the appearance of acne scars, spider veins, and deep discoloration, and trade dull, dry skin for a vibrant, healthy glow. 

Deep renewal from the inside out

This targeted skin renewal treatment uses a specialized applicator to deliver therapeutic light energy into the deepest layers of your skin. These gentle energy waves heat your skin cells, prompting them to dramatically increase their production of collagen and elastin, the two main building blocks of strong, supple skin. 

As your skin’s remodeling process gradually unfolds in the days and weeks following your laser resurfacing treatment, you can expect to see increasingly smoother, even-toned skin that looks brighter, tighter, and more uniform as time goes on. 

Surface renewal from the outside in

If you have more intensive aesthetic goals, laser resurfacing can simultaneously tackle your skin problems from the outside in. Ablative laser resurfacing techniques foster the kind of total skin renewal that delivers dramatic results by gently vaporizing thin layers of surface tissue in a process that’s much like a medium chemical peel or microdermabrasion.

Because we want you to attain optimal skin revitalization results with minimal downtime, we offer the most advanced ablative laser resurfacing technique available: CoolPeel® using the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. With a CoolPeel treatment, you can expect one or two days of skin redness — not a week of intensive healing that’s standard with other ablative lasers.

How can laser resurfacing improve my skin?

When it comes to improving the appearance of common skin abnormalities and imperfections, laser resurfacing is considered the gold-standard treatment solution. Here are five problems it can resolve: 

1. Fine lines and wrinkles

Cosmetic injectables aren’t the only nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles: By stimulating powerful and enduring collagen growth and elastin renewal through every dermal layer, laser resurfacing tightens your skin and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, naturally. 

2. The effects of sun damage

Laser skin resurfacing reverses sun damage in two key ways: First, it rebuilds your underlying collagen structures to tighten overly lax skin; and second, it targets unwanted age spots, dark spots, and other areas of excess pigmentation (hyperpigmentation).

To correct dark spots without damaging surrounding skin tissues, the laser device reads your melanin levels in real time, spot-by-spot. When it detects an area of discoloration, it delivers painless bursts of pressurized energy to break apart clumps of excess pigment into miniscule particles that gradually fade away.

3. Widespread acne scars 

Laser resurfacing reduces the appearance of many types of scars, including widespread acne scars, all while promoting healthier, smoother skin. The laser makes miniscule perforations in dense scar tissue that cause it to break apart and gradually fade away. At the same time, the laser triggers the collagen remodeling process to actively promote renewed firmness through each dermal layer. 

4. Rosacea and spider veins 

Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective ways to treat mild rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition that causes flushed cheeks, small, pimplelike bumps, and visible blood vessels (spider veins). 

To minimize the appearance of rosacea and spider veins, the laser sends targeted pulses of energy into unwanted surface veins, which effectively collapses them. As your body absorbs these damaged vessels, you see increasingly clearer skin and a more uniform complexion.

5. Melasma discoloration

Laser resurfacing can also help correct melasma discoloration. Melasma is a common and often stubborn skin condition that causes patchy areas of hyperpigmentation on facial skin. Because too much heat can increase inflammation and exacerbate the condition, Britney only uses nonthermal lasers to treat melasma discoloration.

Your laser resurfacing solution

Whether you’re looking to minimize lines and wrinkles, diminish surface scars, tighten saggy skin, improve uneven skin texture, correct pigmentation problems, shrink large pores, brighten your complexion, or all the above, laser resurfacing can get the job done.
