When you look in the mirror, are there features of your skin you want to change? Aging, sun exposure and slight scarring can diminish the appearance of your facial skin. As you get older, collagen production wanes and the skin loses its ability to recover its elasticity. Laser skin resurfacing is one way to improve the beauty of your skin. Here are three of the top reasons to try skin resurfacing:
- Smooth lines and wrinkles. Resurfacing options like chemical peels can tighten the skin and help smooth lines, wrinkles and signs of aging. Removing the older skin cells can rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance. Deeper chemical peels can address more significant signs of aging like deeper lines or wrinkles.
- Reduce signs of sun exposure. Sun damages the skin, causing changes in the tone and color. Resurfacing can minimize sun skin damage and help even the tone of the skin. Higher levels of collagen can occur with resurfacing and tighten sun damaged skin.
- Acne scars. If you have acne scars that mar the appearance of your skin, you can hide these scars with resurfacing. Chemical peels can help enhance collagen production and healing of the skin, creating a smoother, healthier appearance.
One of the benefits of skin resurfacing is that it is not invasive like cosmetic surgery. Downtime is minimal and it is cost effective compared to other options. If you want to explore skin resurfacing options like chemical peels, seek the services of a plastic surgeon. It is important to have a qualified skin professional perform your procedure to ensure you get the best results, safely and with medical care.
