Laser Skin RejuvenationThe hands of time are not kind to our skin. Fortunately, today’s sophisticated aesthetic medical technology has provided a number of beautiful solutions for turning back the clock. Laser rejuvenation, also called laser resurfacing, is one of the most popular procedures for dramatic skin improvement. Our practice is equipped with the latest technology for precision treatment, even on delicate skin.
What laser resurfacing can treat
Laser therapy improves the tone, texture, and elasticity of skin. It may be recommended for:
- Superficial wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin laxity
- Acne scars and certain other types of scars
- Uneven skin tone
- Pigmentation alteration and solar lentigos (brown spots)
- Large oil glands, especially around the nose
- Poor complexion
- Effects of sun damage and aging
Advanced antiaging technology
Over time, skin becomes thinner and drier, with reduced elasticity. Pigmentation may become uneven, and wrinkles begin to appear. This process is often hastened by UV exposure, genetics, and other factors. Additionally, damage from skin diseases or injuries may leave scars and other visible effects.
Laser resurfacing is a powerful weapon in the war against aging. The procedure removes the uppermost skin layer, which effectively erases many superficial blemishes. It also stimulates rapid production of healthy new cells, leaving skin softer, smoother, and younger looking. In the skilled hands of an experienced cosmetic dermatologist such as Dr. Garlapati, laser resurfacing is a safe and reliable procedure.
Immediately after treatment, there may be redness and inflammation; as it fades, you will see noticeably younger and fresher skin emerge. Since Dr. Garlapati customizes treatment to each person’s unique needs, recovery times will vary. He will discuss post-treatment care and downtime, if any, during the consultation. Skin quality and appearance may continue improving for several months after laser resurfacing because natural cell rejuvenation and collagen production are enhanced.
