Laser Facial Resurfacing

Laser Facial ResurfacingAre you wanting smoother looking skin with fewer blemishes showing? Laser skin resurfacing may be the answer. Also known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

The process uses beams of light to achieve beautiful results. Dr. McLain will use the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a precise manner one layer at a time.

This targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hyperpigmentation, or a lightening of skin, for procedures such as laser acne scar removal.

The laser beam used in laser resurfacing removes your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.

Here are some things that laser skin resurfacing can improve:

  • Scars from acne or chickenpox
  • Non-responsive skin after a facelift
  • Fine lines or wrinkles under the eyes and on the forehead
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin
  • Liver spots
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged oil glands on the nose
  • Improve yellowish or grayish skin tones

For best results, Dr. McLain may start you on a series of skin treatments to prepare your skin for the procedure. These treatments will be customized for your particular skin type to minimize complications and to get the best results from your treatment.

Cosmetic laser resurfacing is usually done on an outpatient basis and typically takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

Dr. McLain and his staff will put together the best plan for your best results. Call today for your consultation and be on your way to prettier, healthier skin.
