Aging, sun damage, and exposure to the elements can cause your skin to lose its youthful firmness and resilience. Laser skin resurfacing restores younger-looking skin by triggering your body’s natural healing responses. Enhancing levels of vital collagen and elastin in the skin, this treatment gives you skin that looks brighter, smoother, and healthier. Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz offers a range of skin resurfacing options to suit any skin type and concern.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
As we age, various factors conspire to weaken the skin by reducing collagen and elastin levels. Collagen is a key structural protein used throughout the body. It forms the skin’s support structure and gives it firmness. Elastin gives skin its youthful bounce and resilience. Laser skin resurfacing rejuvenates the skin by using energy to trigger cells in the dermis to produce more collagen and elastin.
Lasers and other treatments used for skin resurfacing may be ablative, meaning they remove surface layers of skin, or non-ablative, meaning that they work without penetrating the skin. Ablative resurfacing typically requires more downtime but provides more intensive results. The type you need depends on the skin concerns you want to treat and how much downtime you can take.
