Plastic Surgery: Laser Skin Resurfacing
Serving Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Laser resurfacing is a noninvasive procedure that uses a carefully calibrated beam of intense light to slough off the damaged outer layers of skin, revealing a fresh, revitalized, younger looking complexion.
The principles of laser resurfacing are similar to those of chemical and abrasion resurfacing procedures. All work by removing the damaged outer layers of skin and encouraging new cell growth. Benefits of laser skin resurfacing over other resurfacing methods include the following:
- Laser resurfacing is highly customizable-the laser beam can be calibrated to target only the desired skin layers, and the beam can be aimed very precisely to treat specific areas.
- Laser resurfacing is relatively painless, and can result in shorter healing times than some other methods.
- Laser resurfacing not only sloughs off the damaged outer layers of skin, but it also stimulates collagen production for a more youthful appearance.
