Laser Skin Treatments Restore Brightness to Your Skin
Skin rejuvenation or resurfacing can be achieved in several ways. At Dr. Schwartz’s Cosmetic Plastic Surgery facility of Woodbury, Long Island, skin rejuvenation can be accomplished using lasers, light and energy-based treatments, or chemical peels and other non-ablative methods. Non-ablative means that the skin’s surface does not get burnt off.
The goal of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is the same – to give the skin a smoother, clearer and more youthful appearance. Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can take years off of a person’s appearance.
To improve the texture, clarity and overall appearance of your skin, skin rejuvenation treatment should be considered. There are several skin conditions that can benefit from skin rejuvenation including static wrinkles, dynamic wrinkles, pigmentation and vascular conditions.
Static wrinkles can benefit from the skin rejuvenation process. Static wrinkles refer to wrinkles that are always visible regardless of facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles are lines that appear when the skin is not moving, but deepen with facial expression.
Pigmentation refers to freckles, melasma, sun spots or darkened patches of skin. Pigmentation is generally the result of sun exposure. Scars that are the result of acne or injury can be greatly reduced through skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. Vascular conditions such as blood vessels that are visible on the skin, vascular lesions and constant facial redness can also be improved through skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.
Weakening of the supportive skin structure can result in skin that is loose or the development of cellulite. This loss of skin tone can also be addressed through skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.
Laser resurfacing can improve the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the entire face. However, the most common areas in which skin rejuvenation and resurfacing are used are in specific regions of the face including the upper lip and around the eyes.
Dr. Schwartz can use Laser and fractional resurfacing or mechanical resurfacing procedures such as dermabrasion and dermaplaning to improve the appearance of scars due to acne and other skin conditions.
