As you age, you may start noticing fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Fortunately, technology has discovered a laser skin resurfacing procedure that resolves numerous cosmetic issues, including ordinary aging signs. Skin resurfacing in Chicago offers professional skin resurfacing procedures that yield excellent results.
What is the meaning of laser-skin resurfacing?
Laser-skin resurfacing, or in other terms “laser peel,” refers to an aesthetic technique that speeds up the development of new skin cells by introducing controlled damage, which improves the ability of your skin to heal faster. Laser resurfacing enhances the regeneration of collagen networks that eradicate any signs of aging and revitalize your skin, giving you a youthful look.
What issues does laser-skin resurfacing fix?
Laser skin resurfacing is a standard cosmetic procedure for erasing several signs of aging, such as:
- Uneven skin tone
- Elaborate pores
- Solar spots and age spots
- Slack, lax or sagging skin
- Wrinkles and creases
Apart from erasing signs of aging, skin laser resurfacing also treats the effects of sunburns.
How your doctor carries out laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves administering short, rhythmic thrusts of high-frequency laser energy that gently recedes the damaged layers on the uppermost parts of your skin. New cells grow that substitute the impaired ones leading the scars, spots, and wrinkles to disappear during skin healing. The laser energy infiltrates into the deepest parts of your skin, boosting collagen fibers’ growth gradually. The collagen tissues are responsible for rejuvenating your skin, making it firm, elastic, and youthful, enhancing your beauty.
With age, collagen production levels decrease, making your skin prone to sagging and showing other signs of aging more significantly. By boosting collagen production, laser skin resurfacing enhances your skin tone while making your skin more elastic for that magnificent look.
Laser skin resurfacing meticulously lowers hypopigmentation, which is likely to occur because of chemical peels, and other specified cosmetic treatments.
How laser-skin resurfacing treatment works?
Before the procedure, Dr. Mick will prepare you by numbing your skin using local anesthesia and a topical cream. The numbing makes the procedure pain free and more comfortable. Dr. Mick then places a small laser device above your skin to enable the laser energy to infiltrate adequately beneath your skin on the target areas. Each point of your skin requires approximately 30 minutes for adequate treatment. Upon completing the treatment, Dr. Mick will gently apply a certain gel to the treated area to boost the healing process. Additionally, Dr. Mick will give you instructions on how to take care of the treated area as healing continues.
You may notice swelling and itchiness due to the treatment; Dr. Mick will prescribe some medication for that and after 5 days, your skin will start peeling, exposing the newly revitalized skin. It takes approximately 2-3 weeks for complete healing in the treated parts.
