The presence of fine lines on your face is often one of the first signs of aging to show up. There is no need to panic, however, when you first see them. Instead, you can have them effectively reduced by visiting our office in Santa Rosa, Indianapolis, Beverly Hills or Newport Beach. Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to deal with those unwanted lines and wrinkles.
You can better understand the cause of these fine lines by looking at what it is about the aging process that causes them to form. The deeper layers of your skin contain certain amounts of collagen. It is a protein that is produced by the body for the purpose of keeping the skin tight, firm and full. As time progresses, your body will slow its rate of collagen production. This will result in the skin losing some of its fullness and becoming loose. Loose skin will necessarily start to wrinkle because of the slack that is created.
Laser skin resurfacing can be effective at tightening the skin once again. As a result, the number and size of those lines and wrinkles will be reduced, and you will enjoy a more youthful appearance. This procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. It involves the use of laser energy in order to affect the skin. The end result is skin that is healthier and free from some of the blemishes that caused you to look for treatment in the first place. These lasers are also frequently used to give the skin a more even tone and smoother texture. For example, unwanted dark spots on the skin can be removed with this treatment method.
This treatment focuses laser energy toward the deeper layers of the skin while leaving the surface intact. The outer layer is penetrated by microscopic laser pulses. This method preserves healthy tissue that speeds along the healing process. Since the energy is focused primarily on the deeper layers of the skin, the production of collagen is stimulated. Over the following months, the collagen will grow to a level that is more like what it was during youth. The skin will tighten accordingly, reducing the fine lines and wrinkles. There will also be a certain amount of immediate skin tightening due to the skin’s initial response to the laser energy.
