Today, there is a variety of options when it comes to rejuvenating one’s appearance. One of the most recent options is laser treatment, which can reduce facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. The latest laser technologies provide plastic surgeons with a new level of control in laser treatments, allowing for extreme precision, especially in sensitive areas.
The surgeon uses the laser to deliver short and concentrated beams of light to damaged skin. This procedure removes damaged skin very precisely, one layer at a time. This approach helps minimize issues like hypopigmentation, or skin lightening, in procedures such as laser scar removal.
The laser beam used in laser treatment removes the outer layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, while simultaneously heating the underlying skin layer, called the dermis. This action stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms will be smoother and firmer.
