What is Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that can reverse the visible signs of aging and address many common cosmetic complaints. It removes skin layers, ultimately improving wrinkles and scarring, all while evening skin tone and tightening the skin by stimulating collagen production.
What Does Skin Resurfacing Do?
Skin Resurfacing is known to diminish signs of aging, erase sun damage, reduce pore size, repair acne scars, improve skin tone, and even out skin texture!
How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?
Skin Resurfacing works with the power of lasers, using light energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate cellular turnover. This laser energy encourages new collagen production to improve skin imperfections, including wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.
