What is laser skin resurfacing, and how can it help you to reach your beauty goals? That’s what we will consider in today’s article.

At this point, most people are familiar with lasers. CO2 lasers are specifically designed for surgical purposes and can then be used to remove unwanted tissue. The laser will deploy a tiny burst of radiation that will vaporize things such as scar tissue, wrinkled skin, sun-damaged skin, and other imperfections.

In the hands of a skilled practitioner, a CO2 laser is a powerful tool for enhancing appearance in a minimally invasive manner.

What Are Some of the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a great anti-aging procedure. The surgeon can turn back the clock by eliminating skin imperfections that have occurred over time as a result of

  • Scarring

  • Sun damage

  • Aging

While laser skin resurfacing isn’t a “cure-all” for skin blemishes, it can produce dramatic results depending on the size, shape, and location of the imperfections. Factors such as the current health condition of your skin and certain hereditary factors may impact the full benefits that you will receive.

As a result, your practitioner will discuss the benefits you can expect to gain from this treatment during your consultation. You can speak about the factors that will impact your benefits as well as the potential for needing one or more treatments to reach your goals. Having realistic expectations will help you to enjoy your benefits immediately.

Keep in mind that your procedure will require some degree of anesthetic or sedation, and this, too, will be discussed in advance. Additionally, you should discuss the recovery time. This will mostly consist of some initial redness that will go away in about a month. In general, you should be able to cover this redness cosmetically as you heal.
