    What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?

    Sun, skin disorders, aging and even heredity can all contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body. These include textural irregularities like wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentation changes like freckles and sunspots, or visible blood vessels.

    In addition, skin may lose tone, feel less firm, and certain areas of the body may develop cellulite conditions.

    Conditions that can be treated with skin rejuvenation and resurfacing include:

    Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change in appearance with facial movements
    Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen with facial movements or expressions
    Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots, or other darkened patches of skin result mainly from sun exposure
    Scars: As the result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), pitted, discolored, or have raised borders
    Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood-filled blisters or even a constant flush of facial redness
    Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structures (collagen and elastin fibers) that result in a loss of skin firmness or the development of cellulite

    Laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face, or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip and around the eyes.

    Laser & light treatments

    Laser and light treatments or specially formulated chemical peels resurface the skin to treat pigmentation disorders, such as sun and age spots.

    Careful consideration of your natural skin color and type will determine the treatment best suited for you to minimize the risk of developing additional pigmentation or a loss of pigmentation (whitening of the skin).

    Laser & fractional resurfacing

    Laser and fractional resurfacing, or mechanical resurfacing, such as dermabrasion or dermaplaning, can improve the appearance of acne scars as well as other skin conditions. The degree of scarring and your skin type and color will determine the treatment options available to you.

    A series of treatments are often required to achieve improvement in skin texture and clarity and repeated treatments are essential to maintain your results.
