Laser skin resurfacing is the use of a laser to correct fine lines and wrinkles or shallow scars from a variety of skin conditions including acne. It is a way to target specific problem areas on the face without touching the surrounding skin. Laser resurfacing can decrease the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and mouth. It can also be used to treat the loss of skin tone or to improve complexion. Laser resurfacing can be done with two different types of laser. The laser eliminates the damaged skin cells at the surface layer.
Fractional Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers have been in use for many years, and are used to treat many different skin problems, including wrinkles, warts, scars and enlarged oil glands on the nose. By using either short pulsed light energy (also known as ultrapulse) or light energy in a continuous stream, Dr. Matthew Lynch can remove very thin layers of skin without very much heat damage. Recovery for this procedure can take up to two weeks.
A variety of other lasers are used for specific conditions and treatments dependent on your unique needs.
When you sit down with Dr. Lynch to discuss your options for skin resurfacing, he will be able to recommend the best treatment for you and the expected recovery time that you may experience. A laser skin resurfacing treatment may be the perfect way to minimize lines and wrinkles on your face, chest or hands; get rid of unsightly acne scars, or reduce the size of oil glands on your nose. Once completed, your face will look cleaner, crisper and definitely more youthful.
