No matter what we do to the structure of our face, if the skin is ‘old’ our look is never entirely rejuvenated.
Fine lines, deep wrinkles, sun spots and skin pigmentations all contribute to an ‘old skin’ look.
Resurfacing can improve lines and aged skin texture and discolourations.
Skin resurfacing provides significant and long lasting improvement of sun damaged, unevenly pigmented or coarsely wrinkled facial skin. Usually you will undergo a single procedure rather than a series of treatments commonly recommended for milder skin revitalizing techniques.
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular technique. Like other resurfacing methods, the laser is effective in treating wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots and scars from acne or other causes. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas.
A few days following laser resurfacing, your new skin emerges. Its bright pink colour will fade over the next few months and in the meantime, may be concealed with makeup. In most cases, you should be able to return to work within a week or two.
