How Effective Is Laser Skin Resurfacing

The molecular cells within our dermal layers are notoriously resilient; often able to sustain large amounts of damage from heat and cold. They can go on to repair fully, or heal as efficiently as possible. As these cells repair, old ones are forced to the surface in an effort to expel them. Over time, cells that are unable to be removed can lead to a dry, dull complexion that can often only be reduced by using advanced cosmetic treatments such as laser skin resurfacing.

One of these treatments is laser skin resurfacing and unlike facials, chemical peels and other similar options – it works by tackling even the most stubborn build ups of dead skin cells, breaking them down and allowing the dermal surface underneath to be revealed. Although chemical peels work in much the same way, the controlled emission of the laser beam can take a much lesser toll on the skin, making this solution far more appealing to those that are worried about long term skin damage.

What makes laser resurfacing more effective?

If you consider chemical peels and facials for a moment, you’ll likely understand that these services work by addressing the upper surface of the face and neck, breaking down skin cells and allowing them to be washed away. Where lasers differ is in their ability to penetrate the skin in a deeper manner; reaching into the first few dermal layers and concentrating on breaking apart clumped cells that may have banded together.

In small patches these cells won’t take much of a toll on the skin, but with age and when allowed to spread in a more extreme fashion – they can result in a drier, duller complexion that can add years to a person’s face. By targeting the cells both below, within and on top of the skin, it can be possible to create a powerhouse of rejuvenation properties that can have a person’s face looking youthful and fresh after just one treatment.

How long do the results last for?

This will typically depend on how frequently the individual’s metabolism produces fresh proteins for cell regrowth, but generally speaking a laser resurfacing session can offer youthful skin for between three and six months – more if the individual undergoing the procedure is under the age of thirty. This ability to strip dying cells from the skin makes the treatment very popular amongst those considered middle-aged, but the procedure is suitable for adults of all ages.

With effective options that can resurface skin on an atomic level and in a way that can affect the structural atoms within the dermal layers, the treatment can be an ideal way to fight the signs of ageing, whilst promoting a smoother, more youthful appearance that can knock years of dead cell build-up off of a person’s face.
