Laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin. Since the technique uses a laser, an ASDS dermatologist has precise control over the depth of treatment, lessening complications to surrounding tissue. Laser resurfacing works primarily by removing the top layer of wrinkled skin. It also heats the layers underneath to promote collagen production, which stimulates skin in the treatment area to heal in a smoother, more even appearance.

Laser Therapy for Wrinkles
Skin is the largest and the most visible part of our body.

Laser Treatment for Face Wrinkles
The procedure reduces the need for medication, improves the outcomes for treated skin conditions and increases the recovery rates of affected tissues. The laser transmits photons about three inches into the skin. Mitochondria in the skin membranes absorb the red laser light, causing an increase of adenosine triphosphate levels, leading to an increase in healthy cell production. The process also promotes healing by increasing production of collagen, enzymes and cell growth. The increased collagen production helps prevent scar tissue from forming.
Laser resurfacing is used to reduce the appearance of mild-to-moderate facial wrinkles without the need for costly plastic surgery. Because the procedure is not invasive, patients can expect a quick recovery period and a reduced chance of complications compared to surgical procedures. Laser resurfacing is performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon and can be completed in one or more treatments, depending on the amount of wrinkling. Lasers use a thin, targeted beam of light to remove or resurface areas of the skin. Because lasers can be precisely targeted, very small areas of the body can be treated without damaging adjacent areas.
