The outer layer of skin is commonly damaged over time. From superficial scarring from acne and other wounds to damage from sun exposure, the skin changes as you get older. While exfoliating with skin care products can help improve your skin and remove some dead skin cells, for true rejuvenation, you need a deeper exfoliating process. If you have facial wrinkles and other signs of aging, laser skin resurfacing may give you the facial rejuvenation you desire. Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery offers laser skin treatments to reduce facial wrinkles at our clinic in Los Angeles, CA.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective non-surgical skin treatments for removing discolorations and improving skin quality. The light energy can target the damaged skin cells on the top layers and remove them safely without harming the deeper tissue. This process can reveal new skin cells and stimulate production of collagen as the skin heals. The result is fresh skin that looks younger, firmer and more radiant with one resurfacing treatment.
Reducing Facial Wrinkles and More
Laser skin resurfacing is minimally-invasive but does require some downtime. The treatment does remove the top layer of facial skin, resulting in flaking, scabbing and redness while the old skin sloughs away, and the underlying skin is revealed. You can expect to experience healing skin for at least a week after your treatment. However, the results can be amazing. Beyond reducing lines and facial wrinkles, some of the other benefits of laser resurfacing include:
- Diminished brown or age spots
- Improved tone
- Smoother texture
- Reduced scarring from acne and other skin wounds
- More overall youthful appearance
The laser treatment can be completed in about one hour. The skin is numbed with a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. Within two weeks, you can begin to see the beautiful results as your skin sheds the damaged outer layer and reveals the refreshed skin cells underneath.
If you want to smooth away facial wrinkles and look years younger without plastic surgery, laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. To learn more about our facial rejuvenation procedures, contact us at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
