This non-surgical facial treatment may be used to address blackheads, age spots, dark patches of skin, acne scars, enlarged pores, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Plastic surgeons may use a laser to direct beams of energy to specific areas of your skin. This helps get rid of the outermost skin layer as well as heats the underlying layers in order to trigger the growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin appears firmer and smoother. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to alleviate blemishes, small scars, warts, liver spots, sun spots, birthmarks, and uneven skin tone.
