What is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing uses a specialized type of laser to heat your skin and improve its overall appearance. As your skin is heated by the laser, it induces a healing response, which forces dead skin cells to go away and have newer skin cells rise to the top of your skin. Depending on the type of laser resurfacing you get, it can also help improve the amount of collagen in your skin. Collagen helps bind the layers of your skin together and helps prevent wrinkles.
What Types Do You Offer?
We offer two main types of skin resurfacing: IPL and RF microneedling. Both are effective at improving the appearance of your skin but go about it in different ways. IPL uses intense light to improve the appearance of your skin. On the other hand, RF microneedling uses radio waves to heat the skin, weaken the existing collagen bonds, and force your skin to produce new collagen to repair the damage.
What are the Benefits?
The ultimate benefit to laser resurfacing treatments is an improved look to your skin. Over time, your skin naturally becomes less elastic, which can cause an increase in wrinkles on your skin. But as your skin has new collagen added because of the treatments, it helps increase the elasticity in your skin, giving it a younger appearance. Additionally, it can lessen the appearance of acne scars because it helps shed the dead skin cells sitting at the surface of your skin and replenish them with new skin cells.
What are the Main Treatment Areas?
In general, anywhere you have skin can be treated with laser resurfacing. However, there are many areas on the body that are more common to treat. Some of the more common treatment areas for laser resurfacing include the face, stomach, chest, legs, and thighs. If you’re wondering if laser resurfacing is right for you and don’t see your desired treatment area listed, the office will work with you to see if you can have a laser resurfacing.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Each person is different, so there’s no set number of treatments. For the average patient, you’ll need between one and three sessions. Even if you require multiple sessions, most of our patients can see results from their first session when they leave the office.
Skin resurfacing is one of the more popular non-surgical procedures we offer in the office. If you’re looking to improve the look of your skin with just a few treatments, laser resurfacing treatments from Cincinnati Plastic Surgery can help. Interested in learning more? Contact us today.
