What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a powerful way to rejuvenate your skin. Read on to learn how the procedure can enhance your complexion and address minor facial flaws, so your skin looks youthful and clear.

Even if you’ve been faithful to a great skincare routine, wear sunscreen regularly, eat a healthy diet, and don’t smoke, your skin is still subject to the effects of aging. Wrinkles and lines form, sun spots appear, and textural changes develop. 

Laser skin resurfacing is a way to rejuvenate your complexion. The technology uses focused beams of light to penetrate the outermost layers of your skin. The energy removes damaged skin while stimulating collagen development to create a smoother, firmer, and more youthful look. It helps reform the signs of aging and other concerns that keep you from having smooth, enviable skin. 

The dermatology specialists at North Pacific Dermatology offer laser resurfacing to patients in Arcata and Crescent City, California. They provide some of the most up-to-date technology in the area. The expert team customizes care for you so you get the beautiful, smooth skin you want.

Here are just some of the significant benefits you can get from laser resurfacing treatments.

Younger look

Fine lines and wrinkles naturally appear as you age. While dermal fillers and neuromodulators, like Botox®, can help minimize the look of these lines and wrinkles, laser resurfacing offers treatment for delicate areas around your mouth and eyes – areas not effectively addressed by injectable cosmetics. 

More even skin tone

Sun exposure, aging, and genetic issues with skin pigmentation can lead to dark spots, freckles, and other forms of discoloration. Laser resurfacing dissolves irregular pigmentation, giving you a more even, balanced skin tone. 

Firmer skin

After age 20, you produce 1% less collagen every year. Collagen is a protein that contributes to the elasticity and skin resilience. Loss of collagen can lead to lax skin that doesn’t bounce back like it once did. 

Laser skin resurfacing triggers your body to create more collagen in response to light energy. After laser resurfacing, your skin is firmer. 

Smoothed out scars

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to smooth out acne scars or other traumatic or surgical scars. How your scar responds to laser resurfacing depends on its cause and type. The laser treatment minimizes the look of most scars and makes some disappear altogether. 

Faded spider veins

If you have red or purplish spidery veins or broken capillaries that mar your complexion, laser resurfacing can help. These blood vessels appear due to skin irritations, hormonal changes, or sun exposure. After a session or two of laser resurfacing, these unsightly veins fade. 

Smaller pores

Large pores make your skin texture bumpy and uneven. You may avoid up-close conversations and photos because they make you feel self-conscious. Laser skin resurfacing can make enlarged pores appear smaller, making your complexion more evenly textured. 

If you’re bothered by minor skin flaws and feel self-conscious or less-than because of them, laser skin resurfacing might be for you. Our team wants to help your skin heal from discoloration, scars, wrinkles, and uneven texture. Contact our office today to find out if you’re a candidate for laser skin resurfacing or other dermatological treatments that rejuvenate your appearance.
