Laser skin resurfacing is a versatile procedure that can address a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic concerns.
We can improve or completely eliminate:
· Moderate wrinkles
· Age spots
· Enlarged pores
· Sun damage
· Uneven skin tone
The results are long lasting and downtime is minimal. For many of our patients who are in their 30s to 40s and not ready for a more invasive procedure, laser skin resurfacing is a great alternative. For patients undergoing a facelift, using laser skin resurfacing in conjunction with your facelift will allow your surgeon to address all aspects of facial aging.
Two troublesome areas where laser skin resurfacing is extremely helpful is around the eyes and mouth. The fine lines and wrinkles around these areas are often not addressed adequately with filler, peels, or even surgery. Laser skin resurfacing is a way to tighten the skin around these areas and get rid of those unwanted wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing uses thermal energy to remove the outer layer of your skin (epidermis) and also heat up the layer beneath (dermis). This process stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers and as you heal from the treatment, firmer, smoother skin will replace your previously damaged skin.
At Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC, we have the latest laser technology, which ensures a consistent, safe result. The procedure is done as an outpatient and generally takes less than an hour.
If you’re interested in laser skin resurfacing schedule a time to discuss your options with Dr. Stephen P. Hardy, Dr. Michael V. Hromadka, and the rest of the staff at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC.
