As we age, many of us begin to lose collagen, elasticity and that youthful, voluminous tone and texture we once had on our faces. When this happens, textural imperfections such as wrinkles and sun-damaged skin often become visible. Laser resurfacing is now one of the most effective treatments for improving the health of aging skin.
At NorCal Medical & Aesthetic Center, our Cynosure 1540 laser delivers fractionated pulses of light causing micro-injuries to your skin, which kickstart your body’s natural healing response to stimulate the production of collagen. As collagen forms and your skin begins to repair itself, textural issues such as fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest are improved. Patients should expect to see younger, healthier skin over the course of the next few weeks to months.
In addition to improving aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, laser resurfacing can also treat the following conditions:
Laser resurfacing is a great treatment if you are looking to improve the health of the skin, turn back the clock with a non-invasive approach, and/or target textural imperfections. Laser resurfacing in combination with skincare can also improve the appearance of melasma. While laser resurfacing works on a variety of skin types, it may not be an appropriate treatment for everyone. Dr. Kujok will do a thorough assessment to understand your specific concerns and determine an appropriate treatment plan.
When it comes to other laser resurfacing treatments, our Cynosure 1540 is far less invasive than other, more aggressive and ablative laser treatments. It’s common for patients to experience swelling and redness for two to four days following, but treatments are gentle and don’t require a lot of downtime. For optimal results, it’s recommended you complete a series of treatments, and undergo maintenance treatments to maintain the health of your skin.
