It’s back to school time and summer will be winding down soon. Did you have a little too much fun in sun this year? If so, you’re not alone.
The end of summer can leave the skin with a host of problems caused by over exposure to UV rays. The most common problems include dry skin, wrinkles, brown spots, & uneven skin tone. Laser skin resurfacing can help correct these problems in two ways – gently removing the most outer layer of skin & heating up the deeper layers to stimulate collagen re-growth to reveal smoother, tighter, younger looking skin.
So just how does laser skin resurfacing work? It’s all about using beams of light. The laser sends short, concentrated pulsating beams of light to uneven skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time. Celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian have attributed their flawless, dewy complexion to laser therapy.
The laser beam used in laser resurfacing will remove your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, large pores can be reduced in size, minor imperfections are diminished and the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
So if it’s time to erase the summer damage, laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to rejuvenate and revitalize over exerted skin. Is laser skin resurfacing right for you? Call us at English Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center for a consultation at (501) 227-9556.
